Road Vs. Air:
Why A Chartered Bus Beats Flying

For groups travelling long distances in Australia, you will need to make the choice between hiring a chartered bus and taking a flight. Whether you are travelling within the same state or interstate, when you have long distances to cover you want to ensure that your group is comfortable and that your journey is as straightforward as possible. When travelling with a group, you will also need to do what you can to keep your costs down and take measures to ensure that everyone arrives at their destination on time.

Flying brings unnecessary stress and expense to a trip, while a private bus charter makes the journey easier and much more relaxing.

The rising cost of domestic air travel in Australia, along with the hassles of security and limitations on how much luggage you can take with you have made flying with a group unappealing. It takes just one person to show up late for everyone to miss the flight and rescheduling can be very expensive. In fact, just securing enough seats on one flight for everyone in your group in the first place can be difficult. Flying brings unnecessary stress and expense to a trip, while a private bus charter makes the journey easier and much more relaxing.

Let’s take a look at just a few reasons why hiring a chartered bus is always a better option than flying.

Better Value

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.

No Baggage Limitations

Taking a flight means that you have a baggage allowance of so many kilos per person. Having to pack your bags for a flight can be stressful. Doing everything that you can to ensure that your bag is under the allocated weight allowance.  And after paying more for your bag in the first place, if your baggage is over the allowed limit you will have to pay the extortionate over the limit fees.

Less Hassle

Having to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight, making time to go through security, reshuffling everything in your bag for the scanners and removing your belt, jacket and shoes are all hassles you can do without when you’re travelling long-distance.

Travelling by private bus means you just show up, stow your luggage, jump on board and sit back and relax. Less hassle means you and your group arrive at your destination stress-free.

Private Bus Hire is Easier

Organising air travel for a large group can be challenging. With limited seats available on the aircraft you will have to share the limited space with other passengers. If you have twenty people in your group and there are only ten seats available then you can’t book the flight no matter how good a fare you might get or how convenient the times might be. More often than not you will have to book the flight months in advance which give you very little flexibility should there be changes to your itinerary or some of your party can’t make it.

A Chartered Bus Beats Flying Every Time

When you’re travelling with a large group flying is a hassle that you can do without. Avoid the expensive cost of domestic air travel in Australia, the limitations on what you can bring with you and the stress of going through airports and hire a private bus instead.

With a private charter you will save money, arrive feeling relaxed and have a more comfortable and enjoyable journey to your destination.
