How is the winner chosen?


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


The random draw will happen in a small, dark room at 230 Franklin Road, Building 2B, Franklin TN 37064 by 5:00p.m. CDT on February 5, 2018. No correspondence will be entered into, even if you think that sucks.


We’ll give the winner(s) the good news by email. If you’re riddled with curiosity, send an email to campaignsupport@lonelyplanet.com (including the name of the promotion) within 3 months of the Closing Date, and we’ll respond and tell you who won.


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 May 5, 2018, the next best entry will be 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.


If you do win


We may ask you to provide proof of identity, residency and age, so that we are sure you are who you say you are, and are eligible to receive the prize.


You can’t exchange the prize for cash, or ask us to give it to someone else (not that you’d want to!). We will use reasonable efforts to award the prize as described but if due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to do that, we’ll substitute it for another prize of comparable value.


You’ll be responsible for all taxes, insurance and any other expenses, fees and costs connected with that prize that are not included in the prize description.


If, in order to take the prize, you’re lucky enough to need a valid passport and/or other necessary travel documentation and visas, you’ll need to sort those out for yourself.


You are responsible for your use of the prize, including complying with any applicable terms and conditions of use https://www.jetblue.com/legal/privacy/. Of course, if you win a prize, you’ll be good and comply with all relevant laws, rules and regulations. Lonely Planet reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who has engaged in unlawful or improper conduct.


The nature of the prize may be such that it poses health or safety risks, or risks normally associated with travel to you (and if applicable, to your guest). You should consider any health, safety and travel risks and take appropriate precautions (including arrange insurances) to guard against those risks. Lonely Planet is not responsible for use of the prize which results in:

a) loss that was not reasonably foreseeable;


b) loss that was not caused by our breach of this deed or by our negligence;


c) business losses (such as lost data, lost profits or business interruptions) or loss suffered by non-consumers;


d) losses caused by factors which could reasonably be considered to be outside our control (such as faults in third party equipment, or delayed or cancelled flights); and


e) any loss caused, or contributed to, by your breach of conditions of entry or your negligence.
