  • Is it the 'Load&Go China' card from Auspost?
    The one with the minimum load of $100

  • Anyone knows if this works with family tickets?
    Travelling 2 adults 2 kids which is Family 2 ex Tullamarine to CBD

  • Half price for coppers

  • Damn I today bought from klook deal.

  • Anyone have any tips or tricks to get cheap Peninsula Express tickets?

  • Union card starting with 62 can jump queue when applying chinese visa.

  • How do you get a Union Pay? Do you need to live in China?

  • Good post OP, A few things to note though:

    1. Discounted price is only once per card (you might need to figure out a way to use the remaining balance of your Union Pay card, David Jones/Myer maybe?) I'd say buy a return ticket to maximise value.

    2. Unionpay reserves the right to change the promotion. (Until 2020)

    3. Seems only available at Skybus counter? (Online Excluded)

    • UnionPay is accepted at Woolies, Myer, Chadstone, and many other retailers (although they may not have UnionPay logo on the POS machine but just have it a try ). But you need to notice that there will be a $0.09 transaction fee if you are paying in AUD. You can also withdraw the balance at ATM with $2 ATM fee.
      Yes this promotion is only available at counter because they need to check your card.

  • The public bus+light rail in the gold coast works out to $4/person or something. It has better frequency.

    • Yes, (by buying Go Card at airport for cheapest fare) $4.03 / $3.22 (off-peak) Gold Coast Airport to Surfers Paradise on bus then tram.
      Even bus + train to Brisbane CBD is $13.53/ $10.82 (off-peak).
      Concession price is half that.

      Just not as convenient. But as a frugal traveller with only carry on luggage, I happily use it.

      Bought $2 return Jetstar flights GC-Adelaide in Deal. Returning at 10pm (after last bus+train to Brisbane @21:20). Will catch bus + tram to Surfers, fill in the hours until 5am, then tram + train + bus, home around 7am💤 Cheaper than a bed for the night😉

      Have stayed in Coolangatta, to catch early AirAsia & Jetstar flights - walked along the beach to the Airport🌴

  • is this available for purchases on the skybus website?
