Just about everyone knows the story of “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” But just in case you don’t, here’s the gist: Golden tickets were hidden in chocolate bars and those who found a coveted ticket won the chance to tour Willy Wonka’s factory.

We won’t lie. A tour of a magical chocolate factory sounds like an incredible prize. But we’re here to tell you about another golden ticket, one that’s actually real. And 100 people across the country will get one!

Travel bus company megabus has placed 100 golden tickets on megabuses across the country. If you find one, you will instantly win a year of free megabus travel!

If you’re lucky enough to find a ticket, all you have to do is follow two steps and the free travel is yours. First, post a selfie with your golden ticket and tag and submit it to any megabus social media account (InstagramTwitter or Facebook). Then, send a direct message to any of those social media accounts, sharing the reservation number of the trip on which the Golden Ticket was found, plus the unique number displayed on the Golden Ticket.

Here’s what the ticket looks like so you can keep an eye out:

By submitting your entry, you’ll be giving megabus the right to share your photo on their social accounts.

The year of free travel is defined as 12 $50 vouchers good toward the purchase of tickets. All tickets expire Dec. 1, 2020.

Golden Tickets can only be found from Nov. 4 – 22, so you may want to schedule a trip via a megabus soon for your chance to win!

The megabus travels to more than 100 cities in the U.S., so you’ll have plenty of places to go, should you win. A trip on the double-decker bus includes free Wi-Fi, personal power outlets, reclining seats and more. You’ll also have access to free movies and television shows for your trip.

Where will you travel if you find one of the golden tickets?
