Travelling to a set itinerary doesn’t mean you are tied down to a set time schedule. Our multiple daily departures nationwide mean you can stay and play, or keep moving. Your TravelPass is valid for 12 months from the date of activation, so you can take your time and stop whenever you like.
You also have all the flexibility to jump on and off any pass, when and wherever you please en route, including those little towns in between that we may not feature on our maps.
