HomeAway Awards Three $5,000 Vacations as Part of its Great American Road Trip Sweepstakes



AUSTIN, TX, September 23, 2010HomeAway – the world’s leading online vacation rental marketplace – today announced the winners of its “Great American Road Trip Sweepstakes.”

The sweepstakes was part of the “Great American Road Trip,” in which HomeAway sent a replica of the iconic Wagon Queen Family Truckster from the 1980s comedy “National Lampoon’s Vacation” on a summer cross-country trip to promote the benefits of vacation rentals, including more room to relax and full kitchens for half the cost of a hotel. The famous Truckster initially made an appearance earlier this year in HomeAway’s first-ever national advertising campaign during Super Bowl XLIV.

During the road trip from Memorial Day to Labor Day, consumers were invited to enter for the chance to win one of three $5,000 vacations by becoming a fan of HomeAway on Facebook and submitting a picture of the Truckster from the road or a family vacation photo on the HomeAway Facebook page.

The winners of the HomeAway “Great American Road Trip Sweepstakes,” were chosen randomly and include:

  • Pamela Adams of Spotsylvania, Va.
  • Brad Bennett of Madisonville, Tenn.
  • Donnah Opelac of Fresno, Calif.

Each winner receives a $5,000 getaway from HomeAway, which includes a stay in one of the company’s more than 540,000 global vacation rental homes.
