PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT PROVIDE TRANSPORT TO OR FROM PARTIES AND WILL NOT CARRY INTOXICATED PASSENGERS
Min hire is 4 hours $400.00 with a maximum of 13 passengers.
6-hour hire $500.00
8 to 10 hours $700.00 with extra hours at $50.00 per hour.
All the above prices do not include the cost of fuel. The reason for this is it provides much more flexibility for our clients. Changes to the itinerary on the day are possible, as the distance is not governed by our charter price.
Your bus has a full tank of fuel when we pick you up. When your trip is complete you just replace the fuel that has been used with a payment method of your choosing. Our bus is very economical on fuel but does increase a little if we need to take a trailer. The wear and tear on our bus is allowed for in our charter rate.
Our service is available 7 days per week, subject to previous bookings. Our minimum hire period is 4 hours (this means you have exclusive use of one of our buses for this time period) Long return distances are not possible in four hours but as a rough guide return journeys of up to 200km (return) is possible. As an example, Launceston to Devonport (and return is possible) but would only leave you with approximately 1.5 hours in Devonport. Four-hour hire is costs proportionally higher than one day as there are minimum rates we have to pay our drivers. One day private hire means return day trips to Freycinet, Cradle Mountain, Bay of Fires, Tamar Valley (circuit), Burnie, Bicheno, St.Helens via Fingal Valley, Swansea & Orford via Oatlands and Hobart.
Multi-Day Bus Charter
If you want to visit a number of places in Tasmania (such as the length of the East Coast (St. Helens to Sorrel ) or fully explore the North East or North West then we strongly suggest “Multi-day Hire” (We would be glad to organise suitable accommodation for your group). Our rate for multi day hire includes a provision for overnight accommodation and food for our driver.
Care of our Environment
We are extremely passionate about our beautiful Tasmanian environment and feel as a business we need to encourage environmentally acceptable transport and tours. As such, in order to protect the environment and to give our clients a better personalised experience our groups are restricted to a maximum of 12 passengers. There will also often be two fully experienced guides.
Please complete our enquiry form with as much information as possible and we will be glad to discuss your needs and give you a quotation. Our driver also speaks some Chinese which may be helpful for some groups and given sufficient notice we can arrange for a guide that speaks other languages.
