HOW TO ENTER
All recipes submitted to the HomeAway.co.uk Travel Cookbook will be automatically entered into the Prize Draw and will be open to validation by the public via a Facebook like button.
On 24th October 2011, the Promoter will count the number of Facebook likes on each recipe page. The recipe with the highest number of Facebook likes will be the winning one. Any decision made by the Promoter in connection with the Draw is final.
REQUIREMENTS OF THE WINNER
The winner will be notified within approximately ten (10) days of the draw date. Except where prohibited, the winner will be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the "Affidavit/Release") within ten (10) days of being notified. If the winner is a minor or is in any other way ineligible, the winner will be disqualified and another winner will be drawn.
One (1) winner will receive £500 towards a stay in a property listed on, and booked through, the HomeAway.co.uk site (www.HomeAway.co.uk). There is no cash alternative available for any prize.
For the prize, confirmation of booking with the property owner or manager must be provided to the Promoter by sending an email to HomeAway.co.uk via the address provided in the prize confirmation email before funds are released from the Promoter and the stay must occur within the one (1) year period following the notification to the winner that he or she won the star prize, at which time the star prize shall expire. The prize winner must provide proof of the rental rate payable for the property (“Rental Cost”) by sending the property owner’s confirmation of the booking and the total amount payable to the email address provided by HomeAway.co.uk in the prize confirmation email. The Promoter will be responsible for paying to the property owner or manager the maximum of £500. Should the Rental Cost (1) come to less than £500, the Promoter will forward the difference by cheque or bank transfer (as specified by the Winner) to the Winner, or (2) exceed £500, it will be the duty of the Winner to pay the excess to the relevant owner or manager. For the avoidance of doubt, the Winner must bear his/her own travel and other costs in connection with the property rental. By accepting the prize and booking a property or properties listed on HomeAway.co.uk, Winners and their accompanying travel companions accept and acknowledge the terms and conditions of the Promoter as detailed here: https://www.homeaway.co.uk/info/about-us/legal/terms-conditions
