You need to be at least 18 or the age of majority in your country (whichever is higher) at the time of the competition entry deadline (April 10, 2018) in order to enter. Sorry, we can't make any exceptions to this rule.
Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions in each country, this competition is not open to residents of Italy, Colombia, Brazil, Quebec, Crimea, Iran, Syria, North Korea and Sudan. If you are a resident of one of these excluded countries and also a resident of a country not on this list then you can still enter.
Employees of World Nomads, STA Travel, Auto Europe, Toad&Co or Roadtrippers and their subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and members of their immediate families or households, are ineligible to enter this competition.
You need a current passport with at least eight months left before expiry. We'll assist the winner in acquiring a visa and reimburse all associated costs, however the person entering must be eligible to obtain a visa to either the United States or Europe (depending on their choice of destination) for the length of their travel period.
You or your intended travelling companion will need to be eligible to rent and drive a vehicle for the trip. Generally, this means over 25 years of age and with a full drivers license in your own country. Have a look at the Auto Europe website to get an idea of requirements for your destination.
Yes, the character count does include spaces. No, the form will not allow you to submit an entry if it is longer than 500 characters (roughly 100 words). We encourage everyone to write their entry directly into our form to avoid any issues.
Each of the two winners will be chosen based on creativity, answering the question and the most interesting, unique, original and well-written entry for each destination (US/EU). You can find the weightings in the terms and conditions page under point 5. 'Selection and Notification of Winners'.
Each winner will be able to choose their own travel dates sometime between June 1, 2018 and September 30, 2018, with a 4-week travel period. World Nomads will work with the winner to plan their 4-week roadtrip and organise festival and event tickets as needed.
It's completely up to you! You could opt for a jam-packed itinerary with an event every other day, or you could decide to chill out and travel at your own pace. The itinerary is completely flexible and will be decided upon by each winner with help from Roadtrippers and World Nomads.
Sorry, but the prize is just for you and 1 nominated companion. Your travel companion must be at least 18 years of age at the time of the competition entry deadline (April 10, 2018) and will be held to the same passport and visa requirements as the winner. This means that dogs, cats, emotional support peacocks and any dependents are not able to come on this trip.
The winners will need to be available for a 4-week period between June and September this year. It's for this reason we have been flexible with the trip dates. You can extend your trip after the 4-weeks are up, however any expenses incurred after the prize period will be the responsibility of the winner and their travel companion.
We'll be providing you with a campervan that you can sleep and live in for the roadtrip. It will need to be the primary method of transportation for the roadtrip. However, if you want to use your spending money to splash out on a hotel or party in hostels along the way - go for it!
The spending money will go towards any expenses on your trip that are not outlined in the prizes listed above. This will include, but is not limited to: gas/fuel, food, tolls, extra activities and any accommodation costs outside of the van.
