The Big Bus tour and travel guide is an Australian travel portal, travel blog and online retailer of group tours and guided experiences.

We provide general information about different styles of travel, travel experiences and destinations. We also provide reviews of certain travel products and services. All information and statements made on this website are made in good faith. However, The Big Bus tour and travel guide does not give any warranty as to the accuracy, reliability or completeness of this information, except in so far as any liability under statute cannot be excluded. Any information provided about a product or service should be verified with the provider or party responsible.

The Big Bus tour and travel guide derives income from paid advertising, sponsorship, affiliate partnerships and product sales. We may also accept free products, services, travel, and other forms of compensation from third parties in return for exposure on our website and social channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube). However, irrespective of receiving compensation or not, we endeavour to provide a realistic and reasonable opinion or appraisal of the matter involved. The views and opinions expressed on our website are those of The Big Bus tour and travel guide and may differ from the views and opinions of the actual service or product provider.

We receive income in the following ways:

Tour sales

We receive a commission when you book a tour through The Big Bus tour and travel guide. The commission may be provided by the tour operator or a third party booking engine such as Viator (in which case, Viator’s booking terms and conditions apply to the booking). For tours booked directly on our website, these booking terms and conditions apply.

Tour reviews

We provide editorial reviews of many of the Australian tours we sell on our website, and in some instances we are paid a fee to write the story. However, we endeavor to provide a fair and honest appraisal of the activity. It’s our experience that most tour providers work hard to provide a worthwhile experience, and most act in good faith. In the event that we experience an activity that we do not believe provides good value for money, then we will decline any payment and that activity will be removed from our website.

Affiliate commissions

The Big Bus tour and travel guide receives a small commission when users make a purchase through our site by clicking on certain embedded links. That cost is born by the service provider and is not passed on to the user.

We currently have affiliate partnerships in place with Viator, Expedia, I Want That Flight, DriveAway Holidays, InsureandGo and iVenture.

Display advertising

The Big Bus tour and travel guide displays advertising generated by the Google Adsense Network. We receive a small payment per click.

Sponsored editorial posts

From time to time we publish editorial posts provided by third parties in return for a fee. We endeavor to ensure these posts are relevant to our readership and we clearly state that the post was provided by a third party.
