Specific air carrier(s), airport(s), Hotel and other Trip specifics detailed above are at the sole discretion of the Prize Provider. The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the Grand Prize is $2,500. The actual value of Grand Prize travel may vary depending on city of departure, date and times of travel, airfare fluctuations and Hotel charges at the time of travel booking. Actual value of the Grand Prize awarded may be lower or higher at the time it is fulfilled. Any difference between actual value and stated ARV will not be awarded. If Grand Prize winner elects to travel without a travel companion, no additional prize element will be substituted nor will winner receive any compensation in conjunction therewith. If the Grand Prize winner’s residence is within one hundred fifty (150) miles of Atlanta (as determined by Prize Provider in its sole discretion), air travel portion of Trip will not be awarded and no additional prize element substituted nor will winner receive any compensation in conjunction therewith. All travel is subject to the following restrictions and conditions: Grand Prize winner will be required to travel on dates determined at the sole discretion of Prize Provider (tentatively between Monday, December 10, 2012 and Friday, December 14, 2012). If winner is unable to travel during dates determined by Prize Provider as necessary to attend the Set Visit, prize will be forfeited and an alternate may (or may not) be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion (time permitting). All travel elements are subject to holiday and blackout dates and availability. All meals, gratuities, excursions, additional ground transfers, insurance, fees, surcharges, service charges or passenger facility charges, incidentals, departure and airport taxes, and any other expenses not specified herein are the sole responsibility of the Grand Prize winner and his or her travel companion. All travel arrangements are to be administered by Prize Provider. Travel must originate and end at the same major U.S. gateway airport.
