Everything You Need to Know about the Greyhound Whimit Passes
The Whimit is Greyhound’s (coach travel in Aussie) hottest travel pass. It basically allows unlimited travel for as long as your pass is valid for, up and down the coast. There is a pass to suit any time frame, so it suits all trips.
This travel method is perfect for:
- Solo travellers
- Groups of friends that don’t want to drive (ideal if you plan on being hungover ha!)
- If you don’t have a drivers license
- If you want to see all the major hotspots on the East Coast
The Whimit pass has a hop on hop off feature AND allows you to travel in any direction that you please on any route! Cool huh?
Interested to find out more? We gotcha! Let’s goooooooo…
What is the Whimit Pass?
It all sounds great right? But how do you know if this is the best pass for you? Well, we’re gonna tell ya!
Greyhound used to only offer hop on hop off passes from destination to destination. You picked a route and stayed on that route.
The Whimit pass now offers travel in any direction on any route with a larger max of travel days.
This makes it suitable for any time frame of travel.
Is this the pass for me?
The Whimit Pass comes with a lot more freedom!
Travelling for up to a month
It is the ideal option if you’re travelling for a shorter period of time as you can cover more ground.
You can pop all over the place without being tied down to a certain route. So more time adventuring and less time planning.
Travelling for a long period of time
This pass is also pretty handy if you’re going to be in Aussie for a long ol’ time (up to a year).
You can even grab yourself a 365 day travel pass! This was not possible before. So a pretty epic addition.

How does it work?
For each of the travel passes, you get more value for money the longer the pass is valid for. For example, a 15 day Whimit adds up to around $22 a day whereas, the 30-day pass is only around $14 a day.
From 15 and 30 day passes to 120 and 365 day passes, the Whimit makes it wayyyy easier to see all that Aussie has to offer and save your dosh!
You can book the buses online using your unique log in which you recieve when you purchase your pass. Its SUPER easy to book and change your buses, turn up around 15 minutes before the departure time to board and make sure you have your pass barcode/voucher ready to show to the driver. Sometime you will need to show ID too, drivers license works!

From our RatPackers
I booked my campervan to travel in NZ via RatPack Travel, who managed to find me the perfect van at relatively short notice and with a discount! It was a real help to have someone do the searching and mediate with the company, once they had dates and information from me. Thanks for the prompt and friendly service!
Great service! Jenner was so much help and gave us lots of options to suit our journey. Very attentive and made it an easy process.
This was the best customer service I ever experienced! I highly recommend you if you are looking for a Van or Camper to leave your email address so somebody of their team can get in touch with you. They compare for you all camper hire company’s and you can choose with one suits you the best. I literally talk to this awesome lady from Holland (as I’m only available after 8pm MEL time, so the arrange for me a call with somebody from the EU team for free) and she got our dream van for the most incredible price few minutes after we talked! And not even one day later I got my booking confirmation from the camper company. Their service is free of charge as they earn commission of your booking but this doesn’t cost you a cent. I did my own research before but the deals they give me was way better than I could find by my own. I highly recommend to get in touch with this team and let them find your Van. They literally saved us our fuel cost for a 3 weeks travel from Cairns to Sydney. Yes- that’s almost $1000 they saved us! Go and get your van! You won’t regret it.
So far, so so good. I should have started with RatPack to begin with and saved all that time searching for a camper and feeling like I was getting nowhere. Jenna was incredibly helpful -doing all the hard yards and getting us the best deal. Very prompt service. Thanks for making it so easy !
Very friendly service with Tammy. Super attentive and keen to help us. Got us a discount and one of the last available options.
Ratpack was super helpful! They were extremely responsive and helped us get an amazing deal on two 3-person camper vans. Highly recommend giving them a shot!
Really straight forward helpful and friendly people!
Mike helped us with finding the best van for us for our 3 week trip and was very knowledgeable. With some quick phone calls he gave us the best quotes and walked us through the process in detail. Everything was made clear and we booked our trip in just an hour! I would highly recommend their service.
Great experience with the RatPack travel team! Really went out of their way to help us book our Van’s for two different trips! They have great rapport with the various Van companies, were able to help us book the last available Van for our time in WA and were able to get us some discounts as well. Zan and Mikey were both so easy going, made it feel like we were chatting with friends who genuinely cared about our travels haha, awesome guys! Definitely recommend the RatPack service, will save you time and money fellow travellers!
Mike was amazing - helped me find a van and gave me quotes, a full breakdown, etc super quickly no stress! Just what I needed. Can't wait to start my trip. Thanks dude!
Booked a 3 week trip with MIKEY! Customer service was on point. No Buls**t straight to the point. Saved us a further % on the original price of the campervan and sent me a map of the east coast with highlighted areas he highly recommended to stop at. looking forward to our trip! 🇮🇪 🇦🇺
Highly recommend this company! Mike was incredibly helpful; he gave us lots of useful info and managed to get an excellent deal on a camper for our trip. The whole process was quick and easy. Thank you! Alison and Amy x
Mikey was amazing at helping us plan our 3 week schedule for the east coast. He went over and above to make sure that we were able to fit everything in that we wanted to in the time we have. His knowledge has been a great asset for us making an itinerary. Can't recommend enough!
If you want to book a camper for your trip, you should only do so with Ratpack. The team is incredibly fast and provides great service. No annoying comparison of providers, since Ratpack takes over. They are looking for the best deal and can offer great discounts. they respond individually to your wishes and give you additional tips for the trip. Since there is also an EU team, you could make calls at individual times of the day - simply excellent all around - thanks for everything
Absolutely delighted with the service provided by RatPack Travel. In particular, the excellent guidance and support offered by Jules! We explained our plans and she found a suitable solution to meet our needs. Very grateful and suggest other travellers use this facility. Thank you 😊
