Entries submitted by any other means will not be accepted: only those submitted via the official method of entry.

  5. Use of script, macro or any automated system to enter the Prize Draw is prohibited and entries made (or which appear to have been made) using any such system may be treated as void. Any illegible, incomplete or fraudulent entries will be rejected. Participants may make a maximum of 1 entry into the Prize Draw. Any entries in addition to this may be disqualified.

  6. Prizes: One Grand Prize winner will receive a £1,500 credit towards a stay in a property in the UK, booked on the UK version of the Vrbo website (“Vrbo Holiday Rental”) (“Prize”) and 25 runners up will each receive a customised pillow. Each pillow has an approximate retail value of less than £20.00. The Grand Prize must be taken before 31 December, 2021. The Vrbo Holiday Rental is subject to the usual booking terms and conditions of Vrbo and any terms and conditions (including conditions relating to damage) that may be applicable and which are enforced by the property owner of the Vrbo Holiday Rental, which shall be provided to the winner. For the avoidance of doubt, the winner will be responsible for any damage caused to the Vrbo Holiday Rental. The winner is responsible for paying all associated costs that are not specifically stated in these Terms and Conditions, including (where applicable) transport to and from the accommodation, meal costs, spending money, insurance and all other incidentals. The winner and their companions are responsible for obtaining valid passports and visas and complying with government travel guidelines. The winner is also personally responsible for any personal or incidental expenses and any VAT, national and/or local tax liabilities incurred in claiming or using the prize. If the winner's companion is a minor, the minor must be accompanied by his or her parent or legal guardian (at their own expense) if they are not the winner. The prize is as stated and is non-exchangeable and non-transferable. There is no cash or other alternative to the prize in whole or in part. By participating in the Prize Draw, participants agree that the prize is awarded on an "as is" basis, and that neither Vrbo nor any of its subsidiary or affiliated companies, make any representations or warranties of any nature with respect to the prize.

  7. The winner of the Prize Draw will be the first name chosen at random from all complete, eligible, properly submitted entries received before the end of the applicable closing date. The runner ups will be the next 25 names drawn at random from all complete, eligible, properly submitted entries received before the end of the applicable closing date.

  8. The winners will be notified no later than 9 April 2021 by direct message on Instagram. The winner may be required to submit valid identification before receiving the Prize. The winner will be provided with instructions on how the Prize can be booked. If the winner has not claimed their prize by the date specified in the notification of winning, Vrbo reserves the right to conduct a further random draw to award the prize to another participant.

  9. In the event that, for reasons beyond Vrbo’s reasonable control and not related to the winner, Vrbo is unable to award the prize as described in these Terms and Conditions, Vrbo reserves the right to award a prize of a similar nature and an equivalent value. In the event of a printing or other error resulting in there being more winners than prizes for the Prize Draw, Vrbo reserves the right at any time to allocate the available prize through a further draw or to divide the prize or the value of the prize between the winners of the Prize Draw.

  10. By entering the Prize Draw, participants agree to have their name and photograph featured in publicity materials relating to demonstrating that the Prize was awarded without further reference, payment or other compensation. This includes making their name as the winner available on Instagram between 9/4/21 and 16/04/21. Details of the winner will also be made available to participants and the public on request by sending an email to aibarlow@vrbo.com no later than 16/4/21.

  11. Although the Prize Draw may be featured on Instagram, the Prize Draw is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Instagram and you agree that Instagram is not liable in any way. You are providing information to Vrbo and not to Instagram. The information you provide will only be used for the purposes referred to in clause 13 below.

  12. Vrbo will collect and process participants' personal information and it will be shared with Vrbo's agents and affiliates (including those outside the European Economic Area) to the extent necessary in order to conduct the Prize Draw including for the prize to be delivered to the winner.

  13. Vrbo reserves the right to modify, cancel, terminate or suspend the Prize Draw in whole or in part, at its sole discretion, if it believes the Prize Draw is not capable of being conducted as specified within these Terms and Conditions or in the event of a virus, a computer bug or unauthorized human intervention or any other cause that is beyond the reasonable control of Vrbo that could corrupt or affect the administration, security, impartiality or normal course of the Prize Draw. Neither Vrbo nor any of its subsidiary or affiliated companies are responsible for any condition, circumstances, losses, failures or delays caused by events beyond its or their control such as (but not limited to) the acts or defaults of any supplier selected by Vrbo to provide the prize or otherwise that may cause the Prize Draw to be disrupted or corrupted, or that may lead to loss or damage of the prize in transit to the winner.

  14. Save where it has been negligent, Vrbo will not be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from participants' entry into the Prize Draw or their acceptance and/or use of the prize, or for technical, hardware or software failures, lost, faulty or unavailable network connections or difficulties of any kind that may limit or prohibit their ability to participate in the Prize Draw. Vrbo will not be responsible for any lost, damaged, defaced, incomplete, illegible or otherwise unreadable entries. Proof of posting is not proof of receipt by Vrbo of any entries. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall in any way limit Vrbo's liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for any other matter where liability may not as a matter of law be limited.

  15. Any participant who enters or attempts to enter the Prize Draw in a manner, which in Vrbo's reasonable determination is contrary to these Terms and Conditions or by its nature is unjust to other entrants (including without limitation tampering with the operation of the Prize Draw, cheating, hacking, deception or any other unfair playing practices such as intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other entrants or Vrbo and/or any of its agents or representatives) may be rejected from the Prize Draw at Vrbo's sole discretion. Furthermore, where such actions have significantly impaired the Prize Draw, Vrbo may, at its sole discretion, add further stages to the Prize Draw as it deems reasonably necessary in order to resolve any problems arising as a result of such actions.

  16. All Vrbo's decisions in relation to the Prize Draw are final and Vrbo will not enter into any correspondence with participants.

  17. These Terms and Conditions are governed by English law. The courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to hear any dispute or claim arising in association with the Prize Draw or these Terms and Conditions.
