One of the largest travel organisations in Australia has expanded its tours, now venturing to Asia starting from April 2015.

Bus About was established in 1998 with a commitment to independent travellers, ensuring their time, money and experiences go further when they are traveling throughout Europe.

However from 2015 their tours will explore regions in Asia including Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia with students receiving a 10% discount off all Asian adventures as well as 15% off Thai Island Flexi Hoppers tours booked before the 19 December 2014.

Sales executive for Bus About Amelia Gilchrist said their inclusion of tours in Asia will diversify their clientele and ensure students on a budget are able to travel comfortably.

“The prices are value for money so [the students] get the best out of their trip. The trips are flexible so you’re not stuck to any itinerary and you’re with the same like-minded people which is more fun,” Ms Gilchrist said.

“We also have numerous student discounts on our trips which helps save that little bit extra for a drink at the bar or for a ticket or tour that they really want to see.”

Bus About hopes to assist students to explore the world without costing the Earth by providing them with alternative tours and accommodation to suit all budgets.

“All students have different budgets but our guides cater to this by trying to ensure that they always have enough money every day for food and making sure that they are able to participate in all activities that they want to do in each place,” Ms Gilchrist said.

“We provide students with a huge selection of hostels or family-run villas or cheaper styles of accommodation to give them flexibility with their budgets.”
