Domestic air travel in Australia is getting more expensive each year. When you consider that between 2016 and 2018, the cost of flying from Sydney to Brisbane increased by 14.1%, Sydney to Perth went up by 14.4% and Melbourne to Gold coast jumped up by 23.1%, you can quickly see that flying is an expensive option. When you have to book a large group onto a flight the costs can snowball very quickly.
On the other hand with a private bus charter the costs are much more reasonable and you can split the cost of the bus hire between everyone in your group. What’s more, you don’t have to spend additional time waiting in the airport paying the outrageous prices that are often charged by the bars, restaurants and cafes in the departure lounge.
