Online shop special offers

What are our best offers? You can checkout out Special Offers page, or subscribe to our fortnightly newsletter. Each edition features articles, photos, videos and discussions from our community of travellers, authors, and staff. You'll also receive exclusive deals on Lonely Planet products and other fantastic offers.

Promotional codes

A promotional code will give you access to some fabulous special offers, including discounts, free postage, and sometimes even a bonus travel guide. If you have a code, simply enter it on the shopping cart page (before you proceed to checkout). Make sure you code exactly as it appears in the offer, checking upper and lower case letters and numbers (we recommend you copy and paste the code).

When we are having a sale or a store wide promotion (such as Buy 2 books Get a 3rd Free, or a discount sale), your promotional code might not be eligible claim any further discount - this will be stated in the terms and conditions. Rest assured that our shopping cart will automatically calculate which of these offers gives you the best price!

Things you need to know about promotional codes

  • Lonely Planet promotional codes can only be used at the time of order and are only valid on our online shop.
  • They cannot be used towards payment after you've submitted and paid for your order. If you forgot to use your code, then you can either use it on your next order or give it to a friend
  • Promotional codes are not valid on full-book digital guides or bundles products unless otherwise specified. This includes already discounted print guide bundles and print + PDF eBook bundles.
  • They are not valid with other offers or promotions and you can't use more than one promotional code for a single order.
  • Unless otherwise stated, promotions apply to in-stock products only, and exclude print editions that are on pre-order at the time.
  • Each promotional code can only be used once unless otherwise stated.
  • You don't need to have a customer account to use a promotional code.
  • Promotional codes are only valid for a limited time and expire on the date specified in the offer.

Promotional codes and Digital Chapters

Generally speaking, promotional discount codes are only valid when purchasing individual chapters from our catalogue, though we are working to change this situation. This means that they will not apply a discount on the already discounted full-book digital guides or print + PDF eBook bundles.
