Please read these official rules to have all the information you need before entering any of the Wedaways Getaways™ contests or campaigns advertised on our website or elsewhere, herein referred to as WG and campaign(s).
- Different laws require certain parts of these rules. To make sure you notice them, we use BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS for those sections.
- These official rules apply to every WG we run—but sometimes we also have extra information or requirements. In those cases, we publish additional rules on the campaign page. Usually, those rules work with these, but occasionally, we may need to adjust some of these rules for that campaign. We’ll tell you about those changes on the campaign page.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER ANY WG UNLESS PART OF A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP REQUIRING ELIGIBILITY. THESE CASES WILL BE CLEARLY STATED ON THE CAMPAIGN PAGE OR ANNOUNCEMENT.
VOID WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY.

HOW IT WORKS.
Each WG is a team effort. Wedaways. Inc. partners with complementary industries and companies.
HOW TO ENTER A WG.
Wedaways offers different ways to enter a WG, and it’s really easy to do any of the methods of entry. Participate in the event(s) or click on the link and fill out the form before the deadline, as outlined on the campaign page.
WHO CAN ENTER A WG?
WGs are void where prohibited by law.
Participants in a WG must possess valid government-issued photo identification.
Eligibility to win a WG requires that the participant must be 21 years of age or older.
WG prizes are not transferable.
WG Prizes may not be substituted for or redeemed for cash.
The winner will receive a 1099 IRS Tax form for the grand prize’s value as stated in these contest rules.
Also, to keep things fair, full-time and part-time employees of Wedaways, Inc, or Prize Provider/Partner for the applicable WG, and members of their household and immediate families (i.e., parents, spouses, domestic partners, siblings, and children), are not eligible to enter. Additionally, any individual that uses a bot, software, or any other codes, instructions, or third-party software to automatically enter into sweepstakes (or multiple sweepstakes) or in any way that provides an unfair advantage over individuals that enter manually will be disqualified from the sweepstakes they entered and all future sweepstakes, subject to Wedaways’s sole discretion.
PRIZES and RULES.
One entry per person, unless outlined otherwise on the campaign page.
All WG campaigns are valid for two (2) adults unless otherwise stated on the campaign.
All WG or WG certificates will be made available to the winner by the date indicated on the campaign via electronic service, using email communication derived from @wedaways.com
Any WG or WG certificate not claimed by the date indicated on the campaign must be claimed by the winner within fifteen (15) days from the campaign’s date. A replied email with the subject: Received and Confirmed will indicate receipt and acceptance of the WG.
Any WG or WG certificate not claimed within fifteen (15) days of winning will be automatically forfeited by the winner unless a prize has an expiration date, in which case a prize may be forfeited earlier than fifteen (15) days from winning.
WG prizes will not be extended beyond the dates indicated on the campaign page.
WHEN CAN I ENTER A CAMPAIGN?
The start and end dates for each campaign are listed on the campaign page. Unless otherwise specified, we usually start campaigns at 12:00:01 A.M. Pacific Time (“PT”) and end at 11:59:59 P.M. PT on the days specified. We call this time period the “Campaign Window.”
HOW DO I KNOW IF I WON?
Within ten (10) business days of campaign close, we’ll draw a potential winner(s) for that campaign. A confirmation process, which may include a background check, will then ensure the potential winner meets the legal standards required. Winner and, if applicable, their guest(s) agree to cooperate fully with Wedaways in Wedaways conducting any background check(s), which includes providing the information requested by Wedaways including, but not limited to, full legal names and addresses. If the WG includes meeting a celebrity, meeting a public figure, or attending a special event and any background check indicates, in Wedaways’s sole discretion, that the potential winner or the potential winner’s guest(s) pose a danger to or may harm the reputation of any person or entity involved in the sweepstakes, Wedaways may disqualify the said winner. Pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process, a Wedaways representative will notify the potential winner via email. The potential winner must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or Wedaways may or may not move on to another randomly drawn potential winner. Before confirming a potential winner as the winner, Wedaways may require the potential winner to confirm their eligibility. Once that’s done, the potential winner and guest(s) must execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Wedaways. If you do not execute and return all required documents within the time frame specified by Wedaways, you will forfeit the WG, and Wedaways may or may not move on to another randomly drawn potential winner.
WHAT ARE THE RESTRICTIONS OR CONDITIONS ON A WG?
We describe each WG on the campaign page and in any special campaign rules, including the approximate retail value for that WG. Look at the BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS at the top of these OFFICIAL RULES for details. Some WGs have extra restrictions or conditions. We post these in the specific rules for that campaign, too. For all WGs, you have to arrive on the dates and itinerary specified by Wedaways or mutual consent of all parties. All hotel accommodations are entry-level unless otherwise specified. Room nights (stays) and type (class) cannot be extended or modified unless arranged by Wedaways and paid for by the winner. Any meetings with celebrities are subject to security and background checks. You are responsible for obtaining all necessary travel authorizations, visas, or other documentation for international travel. All other expenses are your responsibility. Travel restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. The WG value may vary depending on travel dates. And because things happen, we can’t be responsible for any cancellations, delays, diversions or substitutions, or any act or omission of any third person with respect to the WG. Lost or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates, or similar items will not be replaced once they are in your possession. The winner and guest must travel on the same itinerary. If you or your guest are, in our opinion, or the opinion of our partners, obnoxious, threatening, abusive, or harassing before or during the WG, Wedaways and its partners reserve the right to deny or terminate the trip or WG, in whole or in part. Your guest must be of legal age of majority in his/her/their jurisdiction of residence. Any expenses not specified in the section in BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS at the top of these OFFICIAL RULES, including, but not limited to, airfare, transfers, checked baggage fees, meals, and gratuities, are the sole responsibility of the winner and the winner’s guest(s). Unless specified otherwise in the special campaign rules, WGs can’t be transferred or substituted, except that we can substitute a WG of equal or greater value. Unless otherwise specified in the special campaign rules, if a portion of a WG goes unused, it may not be substituted, transferred, or redeemed for cash. And you might not love taxes, but they’re your responsibility, and you have to pay them. We’ll give you a W9 form so you can tell Uncle Sam what you owe. All winners that receive a WG with an approximate retail value of $600 or more will be issued a Form 1099.
By accepting the WG, you agree that we can use your name, address (city and state), photograph, voice, and/or other likeness and WG information to tell everyone how awesome the WG was. This means we can include you in advertising and trade and promotional materials for Wedaways and our strategic partners outlined on the campaign page, in any form of media (including media that’s not yet known), and that we can do so without any additional compensation. This only applies unless otherwise prohibited by law.
SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS
By accepting the WG, you agree to post a minimum of 3 posts to your social media audiences with positive images of your experiences during the WG and tag @wedawaystravel & the WG’s strategic host partner.
