General prize information
9. TRN reserves the right to refuse awarding any prize to a person who is determined, in TRN's sole discretion, to have breached a term of these Conditions, tampered with the entry or claim process, gained unfair advantage in participating in the promotion or obtained a winner status using fraudulent means.

11. Winners under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian when the prize is awarded. A photo identification of the winner will be required – passport/birth certificate, drivers licence or student card. Where alcohol is a prize, the prize will be awarded to the winner's parent / legal guardian instead and the winner will not have any entitlement to the prize. In the absence of a parent/legal guardian or in the case of a difficulty in locating such a person within a reasonable time, the Promoter reserves the right to forfeit the prize and award it to an alternative winner pursuant to these Conditions.

If the winner is not able to be contacted as stipulated in the Schedule following the first contact attempt, the Promoter, in its sole discretion, may draw an alternative winner without any liability to any person on the same terms and conditions as the original prize draw or selection. No compensation will be given to a winner who cannot be contacted as mentioned above.

23. TRN is at liberty to dispose of an unclaimed prize at the end of 90 days.
24. Entrants should allow two weeks for the delivery of prizes.
Prizes that include international or domestic travel
25. Where the prize includes travel and/or accommodation, either international or domestic (Travel Prize
), the winner MUST have valid documentation, including but not limited to valid passports and Visas, which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities at every destination. Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities (including any costs associated with delay, will be the sole responsibility of the winner).

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.
27. The Travel Prize is not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be redeemed for cash. The Travel Prize must be taken as stated in the Schedule and no compensation will be payable if the winner is unable to use the Travel Prize as stated. For the avoidance of doubt, if the winner is, for whatever reason, unable to travel on a nominated date during this period, whether the failure was due to reasons beyond the winner's control or otherwise, then the winner will forfeit the Travel Prize.
28. The winner and their travelling companion must travel together at all times. The winner is responsible for transport from their residence to their nearest international airport for flight departure and from their nearest international airport to their residence upon returning to New Zealand.
29. 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 their current flight schedule.
30. Any changes to travel dates or additional accommodation outside the travel period specified in the Travel Prize details, made by the winner, which incur additional costs, are to be paid by the Travel Prize winner.
31. Unless explicitly stated in these Conditions or any Schedule, the winner will be responsible for expenses including, but not limited to, spending money, meals, drinks, transport, laundry charges, activities, incidentals, taxes (excluding departure and any other flight associated taxes included within the Travel Prize), gratuities, services charges, passports, visas, travel insurance and all other ancillary costs associated with redeeming the Travel Prize. The winner (if any) must obtain travel insurance to protect themselves against additional costs incurred in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
32. 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 New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The winner accepts the Travel Prize at their own risk.
33. All travel is subject to the standard terms, conditions and restrictions of the Travel Prize service providers. Any travelling companion included in the Travel Prize accepts the Travel Prize subject to these Conditions as if references to the winner in the relevant clauses were to the travelling companion. The winner and their travelling companion must sign a legal release, in a form acceptable to the Promoter in its absolute discretion, if requested by the Promoter.
34. When the Travel Prize includes international travel, where the winner is under 18 years of age they MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 18 or over at their costs. The parent or legal guardian will be required to sign acceptance of these Conditions and any Schedule. If the parent or legal guardian is unable to travel with the winner, the Travel Prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternative winner.
35. Employees (and their immediate families) of TRN and its related entities and affiliates, participating sponsors and their advertising agencies in New Zealand, and the employees of radio stations other than those owned or controlled by TRN, are not eligible to participate and win. The term “immediate families” include spouses, grandparents, parents, children, and grandchildren whether by marriage, past marriages, civil union, remarriage, adoption, co-habitation or other family extension.
Technical Inability to Complete
36. TRN disclaims any responsibility for the inability to complete or continue an entry due to equipment malfunction, busy lines, inadvertent disconnection, acts of God or otherwise. Entrants are restricted to the use of standard telephone, mobile phone and/or computer equipment.

38. If there is a dispute arising out of use of telephone lines, websites, texts or email or any other form of technology during a competition, the decision of TRN is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
