The NRMA has today announced the acquisition of Fantasea Cruising as it continues on its strategy to become Australia’s largest provider of transport and tourism services.
Fantasea provides a raft of transport and tourism services, harbour cruises, ferry services and yellow water taxis across Sydney Harbour. The Fantasea fleet comprises 10 ferries and 10 water taxis.
NRMA Members currently receive a 20 per cent discount on selected Fantasea services and the organisation will look to provide further Member-exclusive offers and specials.
The announcement comes 12 months after NRMA acquired Manly Fast Ferry, which provides an average 18 minute commute from Manly to Sydney’s Circular Quay – more than twice as fast as the optimal car journey. NRMA Members who use their Opal Card get discounts through the my nrma app.
Today’s acquisition will provide the NRMA with capacity to potentially broaden its ferry services to other parts of the city, including West Quay (Sydney Olympic Park) and improve the commute for residents living along Sydney’s waterways.
NRMA’s growth in waterways complements its existing Member services in roadside assistance and car servicing, car rentals, holiday parks, hotels and accommodation.
