Hey collegiettes!

Need a ride home for fall break this semester? Or maybe you just want to take a weekend getaway to a new city and go explore? Whatever your reason is to get out of town, traveling is always a good idea—and if you’re a seasoned Instagrammer or Tweeter, #Amtrak wants to help you get there for free!

Amtrak is giving away a round-trip ticket for the destination of your choice (a value of $200 per ticket!) to five lucky Her Campus readers!

All you have to do to enter is:

A) Instagram a picture of your must-have travel item for riding a train and tag it with #AmtrakHerCampus


B) Tweet about your travel must-have with #AmtrakHerCampus

Your travel must-have could be anything: your laptop (because there’s Wi-Fi on Amtrak trains!), a pair of cozy yoga pants… whatever you wouldn’t hop on a train without! Amtrak's suggestions? Your favorite luggage (because you can take two suitcases AND a purse on Amtrak trains for free!), your favorite blanket, your bestie, your phone charger, or a hot lipstick-and-sunglasses combo for all those artsy, looking-out-the-train-window Instagram shots.

The contest dates have been extended! The contest now runs from 8/26 to 9/9 so get Instagramming and Tweeting, collegiettes!  We can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Be sure to follow HC on Instagram and Twitter to get behind the scenes of Her Campus HQ!
