Freestyle travel experts, Busabout, HAGGiS and Shamrocker Adventures are inviting travellers to build their own European adventure with the launch of its 2016 Europe programme featuring a new Hop-on Hop-off loop and expanded music festival options.
Neither a traditional tour nor a totally independent trip, Busabout offers travellers the best of both worlds with the flexibility to experience Europe their way, with the added support and door-to-door service of a Busabout Guide and Driver. A much-loved option for European travellers for over 15 years, in 2016, Busabout’s flexible travel network expands further than ever before with the launch of the East Loop Pass.
With Hop-On Hop-off stops in Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia, Busabout’s new East Loop Pass allows travellers to discover some of Europe’s hidden gems at their own, independent pace.
Providing ultimate flexibility and freedom, travellers have the choice of three ways to travel on the East Loop Pass. They can opt for a Loop Pass which provides a minimum travel time of three weeks, the ability to re-visit any destination free of charge and if purchased as a 4 loop pass, access to all 46 destinations on the network. For those with limited time, theFlexitrip Pass provides great value with a minimum travel time of two weeks and the ability to add on extra destinations as you go. For those who are unsure of what they want to see and do, and need a little extra inspiration, the One Way Passtakes you on the most popular travel routes within a minimum travel time of four weeks.
Busabout’s new East Loop Pass is the perfect complement to the existing flexible network options, West Loop, North Loopand South Loop and ideal for music-loving travellers wanting to combine regional discovery with some of the world’s hottest festivals. The Hop-on Hop-off network easily connects up with festivals such as, Ultra in Split, Sonar in Barcelona, Sziget in Budapest, BBK in Bilbao and Benicassim in Spain.
For travellers with those festivals already on the radar, Busabout provides options for each to be purchased as a Hop-on Hop-off add-on with tickets, accommodation, the services of a Busabout crew and much more all included in the price.
Amanda McCann, Acting General Manager, Busabout said “Busabout’s Hop-on Hop-off flexible travel network has long been a popular option for free-spirited travellers who want to build their own adventure and travel at their own pace with the convenience of door-to-door service and on-the-ground support. We’re thrilled to extend this network even further in 2016, with the addition of the East Loop Pass, taking in some of the continent’s incredible hidden gems.
“Responding to the popularity of our music festival options in 2015, and recognising that a number of travellers were using the Hop-on Hop-off network to connect with others on the music calendar, we have significantly expanded our range of festival experiences in 2016 with the addition of Sziget, Ultra, Sonar and more. The addition of these packaged experiences makes it even easier for travellers to experience these incredible festivals as part of a wider, flexible European adventure.”
