To contrast means to compare two or more things or people in order to point out how different they are.
Statement A shows that bus and air travel are similar - they both require a lot of planning. Statement B only refers to air travel, so there is no explicit contrast between these two ways of traveling. Bus travel can be fun, too, even if it's harder to reach distant places like that. Statement D is similar to statement A - it shows a similarity.
That leaves us with C as the only statement that contrasts air and bus travel - bus travel is much cheaper than air travel.

Then, letter D is also not a contrast, for it only presents a statement about whether doing something or something else.
The correct answer is C. Air travel is much more expensive than bus travel.
