A coach company has launched a Willy Wonka style ‘golden ticket’ competition to celebrate its new contactless payment system.
Oxford Tube, whose coaches travel between Oxford and London 24-hours-a-day, announced this week that it will hand out five golden tickets Willy Wonka style to passengers travelling on its service ahead of Valentine’s Day.
One ticket will be handed out at random each day to a passenger boarding the coach between Wednesday (1/2) and Sunday (5/2).
The golden ticket entitles winners to a £100 cheque, a Tube 12 ticket, plus a refund for the journey the passenger made that day.
To be eligible for winning a ticket passengers have to pay using the new contactless system.
The new system means passengers can say goodbye to scrambling around for change as they can now pay for tickets using a contactless debit or credit card, and Apple or Android Pay device.
Martin Sutton, managing director for Stagecoach in Oxfordshire and Oxford Tube, said: “We’re all extremely excited about our new contactless payment systems and wanted to spread some of that cheer onto our customers.
“Valentine’s Day can be pricey, especially after the festive season, therefore we wanted to give our passengers the chance to win Valentine’s Day on us this year – and make it one to remember.”
