The ground travel booking platform is celebrating 10 years of helping travelers find the best deals on bus & train travel by giving 10 lucky individuals $1,000 each in bus & train tickets.

BOSTON, MA (August 15, 2023) — To celebrate 10 years since launching its service to the public, Wanderu, the leading bus and train travel booking platform in North America, is offering travelers the unique opportunity to boost their wanderlust by giving away $10,000 in free bus and train tickets.

Between now and September 15, 2023, travelers can enter to win one of 10 travel credits worth $1000 each by posting a video of themselves on Instagram or TikTok saying what they would do and where they would travel if they won. To be eligible for the sweepstakes, participants must also tag and follow @Wanderu on Instagram or @GoWanderu on Tiktok, and include the hashtags #10YearsOfWanderu and #sweepstakes in their posts.

“In the past decade, we built a strong team of professionals who are passionate about simplifying ground travel, launched an award-winning app, and survived a global pandemic, all the while helping millions of travelers easily book their trips. All of that made us stronger and more motivated than ever to continue making Wanderu the best place to book your travels online,” said Polina Raygorodskaya, CEO and co-founder of Wanderu. “However, none of it would have been possible without the growing support of the bus and train travelers out there who continuously turn to us to plan their adventures. Our small, but resilient, team is forever grateful to them and we are excited to bring 10 lucky individuals the gift of travel!”

In the summer of 2013, Wanderu launched a small beta website powered by two ambitious co-founders and a couple of interns, offering a handful of bus routes across the Northeast region of the United States. Fast forward 10 years, and Wanderu has grown into the leading bus & train travel booking platform in North America with 500+ carrier partners and over two million routes to choose from worldwide, helping millions of travelers find the best deals on bus and train travel every month.
