first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P Greyhound has reported that more Australian families are opting to hit the road this holiday season with coach travel bookings already up by ten per cent.According to Greyhound Australia Chief Operating Officer Tony Hopkins more families are choosing to travel within Australia for inspiring holiday experiences.As the start of the peak season begins, the top ten ‘Hot Spots’ for families so far include Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour, Airlie Beach, Phillip Island, Perth, Sydney, Monkey Mia, Canberra and Cervantes.“Family favourites like the Gold Coast and Coffs Harbour will always be included in any list of Hot Spots but it is great to see people exploring other destinations like the small fishing towns of Cervantes and Lancelin in South Australia and Monkey Mia in WA,” Mr Hopkins said.Mr Hopkins said the increase in number of families choosing to take advantage of the company’s summer coach packages indicates an improvement in the tourism segment.“Coach travel has truly evolved to become far more than just a way to get from A to B,” Mr Hopkins said.“Greyhound offers a total travel experience for holidaymakers, making it a complete adventure from outback to ocean in a modern, air-conditioned luxury coach with large panoramic glare-free tinted windows, a restroom, filtered water and LCD TV screens.”Mr Hopkins added that travelling by Coach also promotes ‘Green Tourism’ as it is one of the most environmentally efficient travel operators in Australia. “Just one full Greyhound coach means there are at least 16 fewer cars on the road.” Get up close with the dolphins at Monkey Mia this summer with Greyhoundlast_img read more
