INCENTIVE SWEEPSTAKES OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY. A PURCHASE OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

1. Eligibility: Only U.K. and Irish travel agents and tour operators are eligible to enter the Incentive Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”). Void where prohibited and subject to all applicable laws and regulations. Sponsor(s) (as defined below), Sponsor’(s) parent, subsidiary and affiliate entities and their respective officers, directors, agents, and employees, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members (whether or not related) of each such Sponsor, Administrator, Brand USA, advertising and promotion agencies are not eligible to enter or win. Entrants must fulfill all requirements set forth in the Official Rules and abide by all decisions of the Sponsor(s) and/or Administrator in order to be eligible for a prize.

2. How to Enter:
Eligible individuals may enter the Sweepstakes by visiting travelweekly.co.uk/BrandUSA (the “Website”) and following the links and instructions for the Sweepstakes. By answering the quiz question in accordance with the instructions on the Website, you represent that you have complied with the submission guidelines and content restrictions as specified on the Website. Maximum entry of one per entrant per Self-Drive Itinerary quiz. Any further completions do not constitute entries. All entries will be deemed to have been made by the authorized account holder for the submitted email address. Submitting mass entries or entries generated by a script, macro or use of automated devices is prohibited and may result in disqualification.

Entry Period: The Sweepstakes Period begins on Monday, 4 July 2022 at 00:01am and ends on Wednesday 30 November 2022 at 11:59pm (the “Entry Submission Deadline”). There will be a total of 10 separate draws throughout this period (one each fortnight). Entries received after the entry submission deadline or outside the Sweepstakes Period are void. All entries must be received by Sponsor(s) on or before Entry Submission Deadline as determined by Sponsor’(s) clock.

3. Odds of Winning: Odds of winning depend on the total combined number of eligible entries received. The eligible winners will be chosen in a random drawing to take place on or about a week after each featured Self-Drive Itinerary run has ended and will be conducted using randomization methods selected by the Sponsor in his/her sole discretion. Eligible individuals may only win one time during the Sweepstakes Period.

4. Winner Notification/Requirements: Each potential Prize winner will be notified by email, mail or phone within a week of each featured Self-Drive Itinerary run has ended. Any potential Prize winner may be required to sign and return to Sponsor(s), within three (3) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent a General Release & Waiver in the form or forms provided by Sponsor(s) (where and to the extent legally permissible) in order to claim the Prize. A Prize must be claimed within three (3) days of the initial Prize notification to the potential winner, or the Prize will be forfeited. If a potential Prize winner cannot be contacted or fails to sign and return the applicable General Release & Waiver within the required time period noted above, the potential Prize winner will be disqualified and forfeits the Prize. If not disqualified, the potential Prize winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules. Winning and awarding of the Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Failure to comply with these requirements, return of Prize notification or Prize as undeliverable, or disqualification of any potential winner for any reason may result in forfeiture of Prize, and the Sponsor(s) will select an alternate winner. If, after selection of three (3) consecutive alternate potential winners, no alternate winner qualifies to receive the Prize, then the Prize will remain un-awarded.
