How is the winner chosen?


11. Rather than consulting tea leaves, the winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries.


12. The random draw will happen in a small, dark room at 124 Linden Street, Oakland, CA 94607, on July 16th, 2018. No correspondence will be entered into, even if you think that sucks.


13. We’ll give the winner(s) the good news by email and their name(s) will be published on the Lonely Planet website within 2 days after selection. If you’re riddled with curiosity, send an email to social@lonelyplanet.com (including the name of the promotion) within 3 months of the Closing Date, and we’ll respond and tell you who won.


14. Lonely Planet will do its best to find the winner. But if we can’t, or if the winner hasn’t accepted the prize by August 13th, 2018 the next entry will be randomly selected and declared winner. Where there is a compelling technical or administrative reason out of Lonely Planet’s control, the winner(s) will be selected from all eligible entries received at that time.
