When entering Greyhound’s Travel Lovers competition (the “Competition”), you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

  1.  To be eligible to enter the promotion, entrants are required to purchase any Whimit travel pass using promo code VALENTINE. Each entrant can enter as many times as they like. This is a game of chance.
