What Is Busabout & How Does It Work?
“I’M THINKING OF TRAVELLING ON MY OWN. WILL I MEET ANY OTHER SOLO TRAVELLERS?”
Absolutely! The great thing about Busabout is that it’s so easy to meet like-minded independent travellers and you’ll soon have lots of new friends on the road. Also with Busabout’s Trip Mates and Community you can even get in touch before you start (arrange a few beers down the hostel bar the night before maybe?) So it’s a lot more fun than travelling on trains and buses by yourself.
“DO LOTS OF PEOPLE TRAVELLING ON THE BUS MEET EACH OTHER AND THEN START TRAVELLING TOGETHER?”
Yes totally! By the end of the season you'll have met loads of really cool, like-minded people. Your pass is flexible, so you can change routes if you'd like and travel with a new groups of friends.
“I'M TRAVELLING WITH MY PARTNER - CAN I BOOK OUR HOSTELS AND BUS JOURNEYS TOGETHER?”
Yes. In MyTrip you have the option to book everything at the same time if you all have the same trips booked. If you’re travelling with a group you can also nominate a lead passenger to take charge of all the bookings.
“DO YOU HAVE TO STAY IN ONE OF THE HOSTELS YOU RECOMMEND, OR CAN WE BOOK OUR OWN ACCOMMODATION?”
We give you the freedom and flexibility to choose any accommodation style you like. Though we select the best value for money option in each city (and we do recommend staying with the group), if you’d like to stay somewhere else that’s absolutely no problem at all. The choice is yours!
“CAN I START ANYWHERE ON THE HOP-ON HOP-OFF NETWORK?”
Yes, you can even break away from your pass and return to it later at a different city if you like! When purchasing a Hop-on Hopoff pass you’ll have the choice of starting anywhere you like on the network map.
“CAN I VISIT THE SAME CITY A FEW TIMES?”
Yes, you can re-visit a city using your Unlimited Pass. Most passengers with longer itineraries travel through some of the major hubs a few times each year. The second time is always better!
“AM I TOO YOUNG / TOO OLD TO BUSABOUT?”
As the nature of our trips are for independent travellers, you’ll need to be 18 at the time of travel. We don’t have any upper limits at all, and anyone who shares our flexible and fun spirit of travel is welcome onboard.
