When booking your ticket make sure you choose the fare that best suits your needs! Compare the difference of our Early Bird, Advantage and Flexible fares below.

Each of our fare types offers a different degree of flexibility, from Early Bird (for travellers who know exactly when and where they’re going) to Flexible (for travellers who want the freedom to change plans).

Prices vary based on the length of your trip and how far in advance you are making a booking. You can find the most up-to-date price for your trip by searching available trips online or by calling our customer service team on 1300 473 946.

Looking for a way to see more of Australia? Our Travel Passes give you the freedom and flexibility to explore Australia’s diverse landscapes at your own pace.

All you need to do is decide which one suits you best!

With a Whimit Pass, you can choose to travel anywhere you want on the Greyhound network without restriction. With an East Coast Whimit Travel Pass, you still have the freedom to hop off the bus and explore, but only on our East Coast services.

So if you know you’re travelling anywhere between Melbourne to Cairns and your plans won’t change, then an East Coast pass will do the trick. But if you want to keep your options completely open or maybe head inland, just Whimit!

All Whimit passes are available for a variety of lengths. So, for example, if you know you only have a week to complete the trip from Sydney to Brisbane, consider grabbing yourself a 7-day East Coast Whimit – you’ll get all the extra flexibility of the Whimit Pass, and you won’t be paying for days you don’t need.

If you’re a frequent commuter looking to buy your travel in bulk, Greyhound Australia has got you covered, too. Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, our Commuter Passes offer comfortable and convenient travel and great value for money!
