DALLAS, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- From spring break to spring training, there are many reasons for friends and families to plan a getaway during the next few weeks. To shake off the chilly winter and welcome a sunnier season, Greyhound has enhanced its Companion Fare special for travel within the U.S. With the purchase of one full-fare adult ticket at least three days in advance of travel, up to three companions can travel for 50 percent off the full price of a ticket. Companion Fares are offered every day for walk-up and online advance purchases with no blackout or end dates, allowing customers to enjoy this deal's benefits beyond springtime.
"Spring getaways with friends and family are a welcome retreat between ski vacations and beach escapes, but group travel doesn't have to cost a fortune," said Dave Leach, president and CEO, Greyhound. "Whether you're a family gathering for a reunion, a baseball fan watching your team prepare for Opening Day, or a student supporting the Sweet 16 on the road to the Final Four, your entire family, cheer squad and student body can travel for less."
Companion Fares are good for both one-way and round trip tickets on Greyhound — the iconic, safe and enjoyable long-distance service — and on Greyhound Express®, the company's premium direct service between nearly 100 major cities, which operates modern, environmentally friendly buses equipped with features such as free Wi-Fi, power outlets, leather seats, reserved seating, extra legroom, wheelchair lifts and on-board restrooms. Companion Fares can be purchased online and printed at home, or picked up at a self-service ticketing kiosk. All tickets are nonrefundable.
