Hi,

Im currently plannning a trip to Oz, looking at the cost and transport available, im looking at using McCaffertys / Greyhound buses.

What i could do with some advice on, is that im thinking a getting one of their passes, but im a bit unsure whether to get one, in that i don't wanna pay a few hundred pounds for a pass i may not completly use.... on the other hand i could just buy tickets for each leg of the journey??

So if anyone has any advice, let me know...

Thanks
Gaz

i used mcCaffertys/greyhound to travel down the east coast and its strange because you can get a 1month pass or 3month (why not 2) i got the one month and it was much cheaper than if i was to by a ticket for each journey i did. so depending on you time scale i would recommed it the buses i found always ran on time and were clean ( not comfy for sleeping in but you cant have everything)

the pass i found was worth the money i paid and i made sure i got my moneys worth

happy travelling

how do the month passes work? are there any restrictions, apart from the time period?

i was also looking at their set routes, e.g. OZ higlights, which works out to be over £500 ..... so feel this is a lot of money if there are better deals available.....

hiya

the month passes work in that you buy a pass for example the east coast and you have one month for the date of your first travel to get to your destination in my case sydney you can get off where you like and get back on as many times as you like you are just confined to the the month.

the longer passes around oz are expensive and there are cheaper ways but for me to get from cairns to sydney for $200 (with my vip discount) it was worth it
