Planning your Travel & Transport in Australia

The East Coast of Ausssssie – You’ve heard all about it right? Home to the amazing beaches that make up The Whitsundays, the epic remoteness of Fraser Island, the world famous Great Barrier Reef and sooooo many more epic spots that we can’t get enough of.

But… did you know that from Cairns to Sydney its a MASSIVE 3000km, Aussie is a big place and there are plenty of ways to explore the epic east coast,
no matter what type of traveller you are, if your solo or with mates, we’ve got options for you because we’ve been there and done it!

Bus Pass & Accommodation

First up letting someone else do the driving – travel by bus! Travelling the east coast by bus is a really affordable and relaxed way to see Aussie, this
option is perfect if you are a solo traveller OR don’t have a full driving license. All of the major stops on the east coast are covered by the bus
companies and have bus stops very close to the hostels in each town. Let’s talk dollar – To do this option, you’ll need to purchase a ‘hop on hop off’
pass, you simply need to choose a start and an end in location… eg Start in Sydney & end in Cairns. You’ll then need to book your hostels
as you go.

Bus Passes – There are two different options:

Greyhound Bus Passes

Travelling by Greyhound couldn’t be easier, they have a range of passes available – all of which can be discounted thru our ‘Mollie10’ discount. The stops
allow you hit up all the epic spots on the east coast, there are 2 / 3 departures daily from each location. If you like to travel in comfort Greyhound
is for you as these guys offer free WIFI onboard, air con and usb chargers in each seat. Direct Price = $445 (AUD) Mollie10 – RatPack Discounted Rate
(10%) = $399 (AUD)

Premier Bus Passes

Travelling the east coast with premier is the way to do it if you are a budget conscious traveller, these guys offer a bus service with no added extras
(ie no wifi) at a lower price. You’ll hit up the same locations but bear there is only 1 bus available per day and if you want to visit Agnes Water
the bus stop is 20km out of town! Direct Price = $330 Mollie10 – RatPack Discounted Rate (10%) = $299

Lets get you a calendar!

We’ve got your back every step of the way when it comes to stretching that budget as far as possible. Once you have chosen the perfect bus pass to suit
your start and end destinations if you hit our site will will put together a Free Personalised Calendar with some suggested places to stop along the
way. The calendars help organise your time effectively so you don’t miss out on any of the key locations. Added below is an example calendar that we
have drawn up… we can work with any dates and locations to make up the perfect trip for you.

“NOTE: the sections we can discount for you we have highlighted in green. The better rated, more affordable trips (especially to Fraser Island and The
Whitsundays) don’t leave every day so it’s good to get an idea of how your dates would work. “

Travelling via Camper Van

Want to go off the beaten track? Travelling by camper is a great way to cruise the east coast and see some epic spots that you might not have seen otherwise.
This option is great if you are a confident driver, are travelling with mates and are flexible with your schedule – AKA up for getting lost and discovering
little hidden gems. When cruising by camper there are a few awesome perks, one of course is that your transport becomes your home, that in itself is
an epic experience, there are plenty of free camps up the east coast for you to pitch up for the night! Imagine camping right by the beach and waking
up for sunrise – #RatPackRoadie life right there! Well in Aussie that’s totally realistic and we can let you know where all the free campsites are!
This option costs a little more upfront, but you’ll save on accomodation and have a true roadie experience! We recommend grabbing a few mates together,
splitting the cost and creating a hit list of all the spots you want to visit! {make sure those Spotify playlists are carnking and ready to GO yewwwwww}.
At RatPack we offer a unique service! Once we have your start and end location as well as your travel dates we will compare all the online rates for
you. Once we have found the cheapest rate for the van that is best suited to you and your travel mate/s. We then discount the direct price by 10% using
the Mollie10 promo code.

Time to hit the road?

Whether you travel by bus or camper on the east coast, there’s a solution for every type of traveller and both will mean you’ll have an epic adventure!
Torn between bus pass or renting a camper? Hit us up and we’ll help you! If you’ve sussed which is the best option for you then we can get this booked
