How to Get the Best Prices for Renting a Bus for Australia Travels

busOne of the best ways to see the sights in Australia is via a rented private bus or as a member of a group using a bus tour package. That said, there are a few simple steps to take to ensure that your experience will be a memorable one as well as affordable. To get the best value for your transportation dollar, there are a few common sense steps one should follow when planning a bus trip in the €œland Down Under€.

 

  • Step one is the most important. You need to know where it is you want to go and what specific (if any) sights you want to see. Australia is a huge country and much of it is relatively wide open spaces where you can travel for hours without a change of scenery. A bus tour traversing the entire country isn’€™t practical or recommended for reasons of cost and time required. Spend some time and effort learning about the different regions and what they each have to offer as Australia is extremely diverse in culture, environment, and climate. Know where you are going before you engage the bus or tour company.
  • Be realistic about your expectations and flexibility. If you are the type of tourist who is open to visiting and seeing whatever sights and destinations may be on a standard itinerary, then you will probably get the most “bang for your buck” by taking one of the hundreds of standard tours available through group tour packages. At the other end of the spectrum are individuals that want to be able to control and direct their transportation provider to a very unique and specific list of places they want to see and experience. If this is your preference, then you will obviously want to consider the additional cost associated with hiring a private bus or rent a camper for your visit.
  • Once you have figured out where you want to go and how you want to get there, the final step is to shop around for the right bus operator to fit your needs. There are a myriad of bus companies and there are literally hundreds of different packages, tours, and bus sizes to choose from. Depending on your requirements, you may want to get pricing and availability from several of the available bus operators, being sure to ask about references and safety history as well as price.

These 3 simple steps will go a long way to ensure your Australian vacation is not only a good value, but one you will remember in a positive light.
