Any changes to these conditions of entry will be subject to regulatory approval and published on the Lonely Planet website at www.lonelyplanet.com, so you should check these conditions of entry regularly.
Can I play?
The laws in some places don’t allow Lonely Planet to run this promotion, in which case the promotion and these conditions of entry are void in those places. Also, you can’t enter this promotion if you (or your immediate families or housemates) are employed by Lonely Planet or its subsidiaries and affiliated companies.
How do I play?

You can enter between 12am BST on 6 September 2012 and 12am BST 6 November 2012. You can only enter once we’ll make confetti out of any extra entries you submit. Your entry is received at the time Lonely Planet receives it. If your dog eats your entry, it’s not Lonely Planet’s fault. If your entry gets lost in cyberspace or doesn’t arrive for any other reason, that’s not Lonely Planet’s fault either. Lonely Planet might have to extend the dates of the promotion but only if it’s totally unavoidable and we’ll let you know if we do.
How do you pick the winner?
The winner will be determined by a random draw of all eligible entries. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. This unenviable task will happen in a small, dark room at 90 Maribyrnong Street, Footscray, Victoria, 3011, Australia on 6 November 2012. The draw is random and so no correspondence will be entered into. Lonely Planet can cancel or modify the promotion if there are compelling technical or administrative reasons which we cannot control. If that happens, Lonely Planet will conduct the draw from all eligible entries received at that time.

How do I find out if I won?
We’ll give the winner the good news by email and their name will be published in the Australian newspaper and on the Lonely Planet website within 2 days after the draw. If you’re riddled with curiosity, send us a stamped, self addressed envelope (including the name of the promotion) to us within 3 months of the date of the draw, and we’ll write back 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 6 January 2013, a redraw will be conducted on 9 January 2013, and a new winner announced. If you do win … 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 either for cash or another prize of comparable value, but we’ll decide which. 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. Of course, if you win a prize, you’ll be good and comply with all relevant laws, rules and regulations.
