Searoad Ferries announce $20 return ticket lottery for winter

By taking part in the lottery, punters have a chance to win one of 21 return ferry tickets each week for only $20.

Jumping on the ferry is the most scenic way to get across Port Phillip Bay from Queenscliff to Sorrento. Taking to the large stretch of coastline is definitely an experience and now thanks to the legends at Searoad Ferries, a bunch of travellers will be able to save a whole lot of money on tickets.

With winter well and truly here, Searoad Ferries is launching its $20 ferry lottery campaign from today, June 10. The winter campaign will run for 10 weeks and provide the public with a chance to win hundreds of cheap ferry tickets.

By taking part in the lottery, punters have a chance to win one of 21 return ferry tickets each week for only $20. 

Inspired by Melbourne’s popular theatre lottery, each ticket, usually valued at $160, provides a driver, passenger and vehicle return travel across the Bay between Queenscliff and Sorrento. 

“There’s no such thing as an original idea,” Searoad Ferries CEO Matt McDonald said. “We thought it was such a great campaign and that it would work well for ferry passengers too.” 

So how does it work?

Simply enter the Ferry Lottery every week and you could be in with the chance to win. The lottery draw opens every Friday during winter. 

Choose a preferred travel day/s and winners will be selected at random the following Thursday. Winners must contact the Searoad Ferries customer service team to redeem and pay for their $20 ferry ticket. 

“If you share your entry via Facebook, you will further increase your chances of winning, says McDonald.
