Greyhound Australia has introduced a new loyalty program for "everyone, everywhere in Australia".

Chief Executive Robert Thomas says the Encompass program has been launched to allow everyone from all walks of life across Australia to reap the rewards of loyalty clubs.

"Quite often loyalty clubs are seen as elitist and only for the privileged, therefore, Greyhound wanted to create a program where anyone travelling with us can join," he says.

"There are no limitations placed on the membership so even if you only travel once with Greyhound, or if you travel regularly, you can become an Encompass member and be rewarded.

"Customers who join the program will receive special deals offered only to Encompass members and will be kept up to date with all Greyhound news.

"Currently, all Encompass members receive 10 percent off all bookings made in the month of June."

Thomas says Greyhound is an economical and reliable way to travel around Australia as it visits destinations not serviced by the airlines and is now the only national coach company operating in Australia.

The company’s 129 coaches operate 365 days a year and travel to more than 1,100 destinations daily.

Thomas says travellers are also becoming a lot more socially conscious, preferring to take greener travel options.

"Not only does Greyhound service a large number of regional areas ignored by the airlines, studies have shown that one full coach has five times less Co2 emissions per passenger per kilometre when compared to jet aircraft," he says.

"Passengers can also choose to carbon offset their Greyhound trip by choosing the Travel Green program.

"For just $1 extra per booking travellers can feel confident their journey is having a reduced impact on the environment, with the additional money being invested in Cleaner Climate’s international renewable energy and energy efficiency projects."
