How do we do this? Paul and Visnja arrived in Port Douglas late 2014.  After solely working online for 15 years Paul followed his wife's advice and 'got a job' out of the house, and drove shuttles between Port Douglas and Cairns Airport between Christmas 2014 and until May 2015. During his time as a driver, and now in the industry for 6 years, Paul has talked to many drivers in the arrivals hall, and watched the different services in action.

Paul currently liases with shuttle bus business owners, and understands the different fares, the different routes, and the drivers who are friendly and helpful - and some who are not. Paul has also talked with hundreds of people from around Australia, the UK, Singapore, Europe, the United States, and even a few dairy farmers from New Zealand seeking some Queensland sunshine or a massage in Port Douglas. Paul saw a gap in the marketplace to offer a friendly booking service focusing on good quality service, local knowledge and affordability. So that's why Paul stopped driving, jumped back on the computer and here we are - now we've already booked 50,000 passenger journeys in our first 6 years of service.
