The Backpacking Truth
Unfortunately, there a several truths which affect the where-ever you want, whenever you want style of travel, and these truths lie within transport constraints. Distance is the biggest determining factor of where you go next, as travellers usually catch buses to the closest next destination to save travel time and money. For this reason, what is termed 'Gringo Trails' have surfaced throughout South America, which are basically the route most backpackers take when they travel on the Continent.
Traveling the 'gringo trail' is nothing to be ashamed of, because these are usually the cheapest routes which cover the best cities, towns and attractions on the continent. Locations along this route are also the most equipped to handle budget travellers keeping prices down and also allowing you to meet other travellers from all over the world who will be traveling to the same places. The Green Toad Bus covers many of these routes, which most people end up doing anyway for the reasons mentioned above.
Peace of Mind
The next transport issue is the availability of tickets to your next destination. Its not rare for backpackers to be stuck in a destination longer than they hoped for, awaiting availability of transport to their next destination. With a Green Toad Bus Pass you arrive in the country knowing that you already have your onward journey booked, meaning you have peace of mind knowing you can get where you want, when you want.
The majority of the destinations have daily departures to the next destination on the route!
By using local transport you do not alienate yourself from the local people. If you travelled only on private transport you would end up only being exposed to other travellers, rarely meeting the people from the country in which you are passing through. By traveling on local transport we are also supporting local business and travelling environmentally friendly.
We are not just transport, we have a selection of the must-do activities in the must-go locations. You just have to tell us which day you wish to do them while you are designing your trip and we will let you know where you have to be to start each activity.
Safety & Security
The Green Toad Bus always uses the most reputable local transport companies between destinations. These companies usually have the best safety records and change drivers regularly so as to always have fresh eyes on the road. They also have stringent security looking after your luggage which is stored out of site.
Use the Green Toad Bus to always ensure people back home know where you are while you are travelling in South America. Allow them access to your Green Toad Bus account and they can see on-line what city you are in, and if you book our recommended hostels, they will also always know how to contact you.
Green Toad Bus really takes the hassle out of planning your trip, and why-not enjoy travel without having to worry about the ins-&-outs of getting around. We have been travelling ourselves for a long time on the continent and really know the best way to get around covering the greatest spots. Organising transport, activities and accommodation is very time consuming and take up a big part of your time while you are overseas. We allow you to easily arrange this from the comfort of your own country, and give you peace of mind that you are always getting the safest budget options.
The Green Toad Bus is useful for those with a fixed amount of time to travel. If you only have a limited time to get from your arrival destination to your final destination, then design your trip on our site to fit your time restraints exactly how you need to. Each pass informs you of our recommended minimal time needed, so you can know exactly how much time you need to comfortably get to your departure city.
While backpacking, transportation and your activities are a major cost and it is often hard to know how to budget for them. With a Green Toad Bus pass, you can eliminate a lot of this budgeting by having your transport and many of your activities paid for before you leave home.
You truly explore South America the best way when you Hop with the Toad!
