Backpackers - don’t get a pass! Get true freedom with cheap fares from $1!

8 November 2020

Other transport companies might try to lock you into expensive backpacker passes, but that’s not the way we do things here. You can make as many or as few trips as you like, and take advantage of the cheapest fare on offer at the time you book.

And as our cheap bus prices start at $1 (on every bus every day), you can travel around incredibly cheaply if you plan ahead.

Let’s say you want to visit 10 locations. With you could pay as little as $10.70 (the 70c is our booking fee) – ok, you probably won’t get $1 fares for all your trips, but if you plan your trip ahead of schedule you should be able to do it for less than $150. With some other companies it would cost you $200-$300!

We want you to have more money to spend on the fun stuff, and we don’t want to lock you into a fixed price product – in case you change your mind. So buy as you go with and save big time!
