Mini Traveller Passes provide travel between two popular destinations and in between you can hop on and hop off as much as you like in the one direction, over 45 days.
Greyhound has 129 coaches operating 365 days a year and traveling to more than 1,100 destinations daily. Greyhound CEO Robert Thomas says
“The new loyalty program Encompass for ‘everyone, everywhere in Australia’..
Greyhound is an economical and reliable way to travel around Australia as it visits destinations not serviced by the airlines and is now the only national coach company operating in Australia..
Quite often loyalty clubs are seen as elitist and only for the privileged, therefore, Greyhound wanted to create a program where anyone travelling with us can join…
There are no limitations placed on the membership so even if you only travel once with Greyhound, or if you travel regularly, you can become an Encompass member and be rewarded.
Customers who join the program will receive special deals offered only to Encompass members and will be kept up to date with all Greyhound news…”
Coach passengers are more socially conscious these days and are preferring to take greener travel options.
Studies have shown that one full coach has five times less Co2 emissions per passenger per kilometre when compared to jet aircraft and passengers can also choose to carbon offset their coach trip by choosing the Greyhound Travel Green program.

Bob Eustace from Wanderer says:
“The Wanderer is a monthly full colour, 85 glossy page, A4 size magazine published by the largest RV club in Australia the CMCA which stands for Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia.
Up until a few months ago the magazine was entirely self funded – no mean feat without going overboard with advertising. You can’t buy the book without becoming a member of the club – $44.00 per year.
Current membership stands at 27,000 and it is increasing at the astounding rate of 500 per month. You can become an associate member without owning a motorhome and receive the magazine – 12 issues a year so it represents terrific value.
The CMCA run their club completely differently than the A’van club. Formation of district chapters is actively encouraged and to stop these becoming bogged down in red tape or members being forced to follow the whims or various “Presidents” they use a system of hosting.
At chapter rallies two/four members “host” that event for that meeting only. Next rally sees a different group take control providing new ideas etc. A great system that really works.
So what the magazine is all about is listing the previous months events, publishing members travel yarns, lots of technical info and a small amount of reviews. All in all it is a very good read and of interest to all RV’ers. The tips on free camping, good suppliers and places to avoid is priceless information. It would have to be one of the most professionally put together magazines in Australia if not the world. Absolutely recommended.”
