Top 10 Reasons To Book Travel And Tour Packages


Greyhound Blog

Before you sit down and start painstakingly planning your next adventure, have you considered booking a travel package? This blog will give you the 10 best reasons travel packages are the best way to explore Australia. Want to find out more? Read on and, of course, visit Greyhound today!




1. Prep Work

Prep work can be fun but let’s face it, it’s mainly just stressful. Mapping out all of your destinations and virtually every hour of every day during your trip takes a lot of time and energy that could be better spent actually packing your bags! Thankfully, travel packages take most of the prep work out of travelling for you by organising your transportation, accommodation and tours along the way.

The packages we put together at Greyhound are designed to make the most efficient use of your time, taking into account proximity to each location so you can choose from a range of flexible travel options.

2. Flexibility

One of the most important aspects of a trip is flexibility - being able to go where you want, when you want and to tweak your itinerary as necessary. Travel packages offer all these perks, with multiple departure times and pick up locations to suit your needs and the option of adding on day tours or group trips to your overall package. Some travel packages like those from Oz Experience even offer unlimited hop on hop off travel so you can explore as much as you like for one fixed cost.


3. Savings

Why bother booking and paying for everything separately when you can buy one package with built in savings? On top of that, when you purchase packages through Greyhound, you benefit from our buying power meaning you see the top sights for less. As fun as it is hunting for the best deals, travel companies know exactly where to find them and they hand them straight over to you.


4. Safety

Visiting new places can be intimidating if you’re not familiar with the location or culture, but travel packages are designed by experts in the areas they take you to and will alert you of where to go, and where to avoid. Of course, group trips are also much safer than perusing around on your own so take advantage of the guided tours in your travel package!


5. Bucket-List Experiences

Many travel packages are designed to give you those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that you’ve been dreaming of, while saving you all the prep time in organising them yourself. At Greyhound we can help you start ticking experiences off your list, like snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, skydiving in Byron Bay or touring the great Ocean Road to name a few!

7. Comfort

Long rides spent cramped into a small car or bus can be frustrating, particularly if you’re the one driving! Travel packages ensure your transportation is as comfortable as possible. At Greyhound we offer free WiFi, panoramic windows and leather recliners so you can literally kick back and relax on the wide-open road.


8. Accommodation

Forget scrambling to find a bed at the last minute, particularly in popular tourist hot spots! Many travel packages include great accommodation that is close to all the must-see destinations, so you can save time on travel and get straight to taking in the sights and sounds.


9. Guided Tours

Whether you are travelling on your own or in a group, there’s no better way to take in and appreciate local landmarks than with a guided tour, which are included in many travel packages. The tour guides are often locals who offer an insider’s view on the area’s history and significance, meaning you’ll get a more in-depth experience than you would on your own. As a bonus, tours are usually run outside of peak hours so you can take advantage of fewer crowds.


10. Travel Buddies

Whether you’re travelling alone or not, everyone could use an extra friend and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Between all the shared bus rides and group tours, socialising is inherently built into travel packages so you’re bound to make some new friends along the way. As fellow travellers, they may even have some valuable advice or recommendations to share for your next adventure, so be sure to swap stories, tips and tricks with your new travel buddies before you go your separate ways.
