DALLAS, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Greyhound, the intercity bus carrier that provides safe, convenient and reliable transportation at the lowest prices, today announced a sweepstakes that offers customers more chances to win the farther they travel. Beginning now through June 30, the "Miles to Win Sweepstakes" allows customers to receive one entry per 100 miles booked for destinations that are 500 miles or more from the originating location. Seven daily winners will receive a free trip worth the value of the ticket they purchased at the time of entry, and 10 grand prize winners will receive a GoPro® HERO with HD Action Camera.
"The summer is a great time for a road trip, and we're happy to not only be one of the most comfortable and stress-free ways for customers to take a trip, but we also offer them an incentive to get on the road and explore other destinations outside of their city or state," said Andy Kaplinsky, chief commercial officer, Greyhound Lines, Inc. "The Miles to Win Sweepstakes encourages customers to get on the road, be adventurous and finally take that ultimate vacation they've always wanted to take, because the longer the trip, the better their chance is to win."
To enter the "Miles to Win Sweepstakes," customers must register and book a future trip by June 30 at www.greyhound.com/miles-to-win. A random drawing will be held each day for seven days during the sweepstakes period, June 24 – 30, to determine the daily prize winners, selected from among all eligible entries. A random drawing will also be held to determine the Grand Prize winners, which will be selected from all eligible entries on or about June 30.
