Busabout has officially launched its 2018-2019 Europe and Asia offering with a breakfast bash at The Bucket List in Sydney’s Bondi last Friday. With media and social influencers in attendance – including Scott Tweedie, Liv Phyland, Madison Lloyd and Lana Kington (SketchShe), comedian Alan Tsibulya and actor Lincoln Younes – guests sipped on Mimosas and Bloody Marys, played with Pumpt pool toys and slapped on Sun Bum sunscreen, despite the unseasonal Sydney downpour outside.
Tina McIntosh, General Manager of Busabout Australasia, presented highlights of the new brochure including the fact it was designed using 95% UGC (User Generated Content), created from passionate Busabout travellers to reflect real experiences, and some of those influential Busabout advocates were present at the event including Alex Dyson, Tegan Phillipa and her partner Ned as well as Leanne Melody who had all just recently travelled with Busabout.
McIntosh said: “We wanted to reveal what’s new to our travellers, who already know and love Busabout as well as introduce our amazing offering to those who don’t know us as well. We are so glad to have amazing advocates to share their amazing experiences and really bring Busabout to life.
“We’re thrilled about the exciting destinations and music festivals we’re offering this season. We pride ourselves on providing travellers with complete flexibility and our Hop-on Hop-off flexible travel network is still a favourite for those wanting the freedom to explore Europe, with a little guidance along the way. Now, with our new fleet of green coaches, they can feel good about their journey too.”
New for 2018-2019 is the expansion of Busabout’s travel network which includes some new stops through Portugal and Spain, a trip to the foodie capital of Bologna for the first time, an off-the-beaten-path exploration of Eastern Europe, as well as four new Europe Winter & Festive itineraries, nine new Adventures, and a new Winter Music Festival itinerary.
Busabout, HAGGiS and Shamrocker Adventures’ 2018-2019 program also offers travellers a range of ways to save. All travellers who book and pay before 21 December 2017 can take advantage of Early Bird Deals, receiving 15% off Hop-on Hop-off passes and Scotland and Ireland, as well as up to 12% off Sailing, Island Hopping, Adventures, Festivals and Europe Winter trips.
