Winning the Prize

Only the person who originally entered the Competition can be awarded the 'Prize' ('the Winner').

The Winner will be determined in the manner set out in the Rules or the Specific Rules as determined by the Promoter who shall for this purpose be deemed the Judge. The Competition Rules are available here

The Judge's determination of the Winner will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. The Winner will be notified by email, phone (voice or text), mail or in person and must be available for participation in all publicity that may be required by the Promoter. Where attempts to contact the Winner fail (e.g. where the Winner cannot be contacted by phone after 3 (three) attempts or mail sent is returned) the Judge will select another winner. If, after successful notification, the Prize is not claimed within 2 (two) months of being announced it will be regarded as forfeit. (Note: three attempts to contact the Winner will include individual calls to any numbers provided at the time of entry.)

The Prize is not redeemable for cash or transferable. No other family members, friends, office associates or any other person will be able to participate in the Prize on the Winner's behalf. In the event that the Prize becomes unavailable for any reason the Promoter may substitute the P for a prize of like or equal value.

Where the Winner is required to claim the Prize in person, he /she must provide proper identification (e.g. driver's license, passport, birth certificate). If the Winner is under the age of 18 (eighteen) years his/her parent or legal guardian must accompany the Winner or give his/her prior written consent to the award of the Prize.

The Winner takes the Prize entirely at his/her own risk and indemnifies the Promoter in respect of any claim for any accident, injury, property damage or loss of life that may occur in connection with the Prize.

The Winner is responsible for all insurance, tax or other costs that may be associated with the Prize. Where the Prize includes air travel and/or accommodation (international or domestic)

the Winner MUST have valid documentation (including but not limited to valid passports and visas), which meets the requirements of immigration and other government authorities at the relevant destination(s).

Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documentation not meeting the requirements of those authorities (including any costs associated with delay, will be the sole responsibility of the Winner.

When the Prize includes travel to or through the United States, it is the Winner’s responsibility when travelling into or through (including transit i) the United States under the Visa Waiver Program to apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (‘ESTA’) no later than 72 (seventy two) hours prior to departure if required. The winner must visit the US Department of Homeland Security website and fill in the required information. The cost of the ESTA is the sole responsibility of the Winner.

The Winner and his/her travelling companion (if applicable) must travel together at all times. The Winner is responsible for transport from his/her residence to the nearest international airport for flight departure and from his/her nearest international airport to his/her residence upon returning to South Africa.

Flight tickets are available on the regular scheduled services of each airline and are subject to seasonal embargos. The flight itinerary may have to be adjusted depending on the airline's departure city and its current flight schedule. Unless otherwise specified, the air travel is economy class.

The Winner must obtain travel insurance to protect him/herself against additional costs incurred in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

The Prize is not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be redeemed for cash. The Prize must be taken as stated in the Specific Rules and no compensation will be payable if the Winner is unable to use the Prize as stated. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Winner is, for whatever reason, unable to travel on the specified date or period set out in the Special Rules, whether the failure was due to reasons beyond the Winner's control or otherwise, then the Winner will forfeit the Prize.

The Promoter makes no representation as to safety, conditions and other issues that may exist at any destination. International travel advice can be obtained from various sources, including government, local consular offices and the web site of the destination country. The winner accepts the Prize at his/her own risk.

All travel is subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions of the Prize service providers.
