Money hack: Bag Skybus shuttle discounts through Klook

It pays to do that "double check" before you book.

I recently visited Melbourne and in the past I've booked my Skybus shuttle into the city direct, online with a coupon code. This has saved me a pretty penny but Skybus doesn't always offer coupon codes and to be honest, I was spoiled the first time around, so when I realised I had to pay full price I shuddered at the thought.

Being in denial, I decided to do a quick (read, thorough and desperate) search through some deal sites and wound up finding gold.

Its name was Klook.

The hack

Klook is an activities and attractions booking site. It's similar to Viator and RedBalloon, both of which I've used, but offers some different activities as well as a Klook Price Guarantee where if you find a better price on the same activity/ticket, it'll refund you double the difference.

That's a pretty big call but it also means it's got its eye on the ball to be the absolute cheapest offer on the market.

Where RedBalloon and Viator pulled up zip on Skybus, Klook offered transfers at $4 less than the official website. It also accepts coupon codes which I used to bring that $4 to $5.

Sounds minor in the scheme of things, but once you realise it's there you can't help doing a double check for any and every booking you need to make. Plus, every booking you make earns you credits, which you can use to get further discounts on future bookings.

Booking experiences for your next trip? Double check with Klook first to see how much you could be saving.
