If you do not receive a confirmation within one week of submitting your documentation, your contact information may be out of date. Go to www.wizards.com/customerservice, click the Email Us tab and sign in or create an account. Then select WPN Players, Prize Inquiry and submit an email.
Follow the instructions provided to book & finalize your travel:The confirmation email will provide instructions on how to contact the travel agency at Hasbro to book travel. Once you receive an itinerary from Hasbro Travel, you will have 24 hours to approve it or make changes. Travel bookings must be finalized no later than 30 days before the first date of travel to the Pro Tour. Any travel not issued and finalized prior to this date will be forfeit.
The PTQ travel award is for airfare only and does not include baggage fees or hotel accommodations. All hotel accommodations are the sole responsibility of the player. If you live within driving distance of the Pro Tour, you may be eligible for a Local Travel Award. Please include this information when you send in your documents.
Visa Requirements: It is the player's responsibility to determine if a travel visa is required. Please be aware that visas usually take several weeks to process.
If you are under 18 years of age: Minors who win a Qualifier are not eligible for the plane ticket travel award. Instead, minors will be issued a cash equivalent award equal to the cost of a round trip ticket to the Pro Tour, as determined by Wizards in its sole discretion. This award will be issued only if the player turns in documentation described above, attends the Pro Tour, and registers to play. The cash equivalent award is processed after the Pro Tour.
