School Excursions & Charters

Travel Australia at ‘see’ level!

School Charters

We here at Road Runner Tours Wyong are specialists when it comes to local school excursions. Our services include transportation for students attending local educational and sporting venues. We also provide extended school excursions to Sydney, Canberra, Bathurst, Snowy Mountains or even outback camping safaris for example, as we have been doing this type of work for over 20 years.

Our quality vehicle fleet consists of (6) long distance coaches and (4) school buses. All our long distance coaches are equipped with seat belts, air conditioning, TV & DVD player. An added bonus of using our vehicles is their ability to carry student bags with our large bin capacity. These vehicles are ideal for one day trips to Sydney, Newcastle, recreational camping trips or your extended more comprehensive excursions.

At Road Runner Tours we do not have gazetted school runs, or service runs that require meeting critical timeframes. This allows us to not put restrictions to any regular timetable, your school can then have the flexibility of variably excursion departure and return times.

We consider all the facets of travel and in particular your school’s individual requirements. We can take care of all the bookings, and include excursion venue visits and accommodation on your behalf if required, or work with your set itinerary.

Some schools choose an educational booking agent to do all their planning for them. We have found that the cost to schools is more expensive than going direct. And more importantly the students, pay more for their tours. We do not charge commissions on entry fees, or accommodation, to keep the price to a minimum for every school we work with.

We plan day trips for school charters to wherever your school would like to visit. We are sure that you will find our local knowledge invaluable to help in planning your next school charter.

Single day, Part day, or Extended excursions

Just let us know where to, how many students, how many teachers / supervisors, preferred itinerary if you have one, or places of interest you would like to visit, or preferred accommodation if you have one in mind. And we can arrange whole excursion for you and then give you a cost per student. Our online booking form can help make this an easy experience.

What about a Safari to anywhere in Australia that you would like to see?

Maybe the Red Centre including Ayres Rock, Kings Canyon, Alice Springs, the Plenty Highway to Winton, Long Reach and the Gold Coast for the last day. What about Darwin, Tassie or Western Australia, the mind boggles when you think of where you could visit on your next safari excursion.

Just call us and we will do the rest 
for any excursion you have in mind.

Loyalty Program

In July of 2009 we introduced a Loyalty Program for which many schools on the Central Coast enthusiastically embraced and in doing so received up to $400 for their Presentation Night. Please contact our office to find out how this fantastic program works.

We have been operating as a locally operated Company since 1998, previously we traded as Palmers Leisure Tours that were established in 1912. These services have been on the Central Coast for over 100 years. Today we still pride our excellence in travel as we did all those years back.
