If you’re the independent type and want to travel the world completely under your own steam, you’re probably going to be using a lot of public transport, especially trains and buses. In many parts of the world, buses are the only means of transport for effectively moving around a country or region, and they are almost always the cheapest too. We offer plenty of options to help you book bus or train tickets and passes in advance, as well as information to help you plan using them.
Let’s take Greyhound Australia buses as an example. Most backpackers who choose not to join group tours in Australia will use Greyhound buses at some point on their journey, their nationwide network and flexible hop-on hop-off passes giving you total control over your itinerary. The buses are really comfortable too!
If you’re going abroad for a longer time, maybe even moving there, we also offer services to help make that transition as smooth and stress-free as possible. After all, you want to enjoy it!
Travelling independently doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared. Check out all the different options for travel tickets and services.
