An alternative to the Dutch Flyer or International Rail options for travelling between London and Amsterdam is to catch a Eurolines coach. The route offers up to ten services between the cities each day, and it is one of the most carbon-efficient ways of travelling. On some services, Eurolines Plus coaches are used, which offer passengers DVDs and extra legroom. One other advantage of travelling by coach is the luggage allowance; each passenger is allowed two medium sized suitcases, a much greater free allowance than is offered by budget airlines.
Passengers must check in at least 30 minutes before the coach is due to depart (although they can check in from 1 hour before departure, and at London check in closes 15 minutes before departure). You will need to show your passport or travel documentation before being issued with a boarding card. If you are travelling with luggage, make sure it is labelled as it will be stored under the coach.
This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by by Eurotunnel or by P&O ferry (except where stated). When you get to the port/train terminal, you will have to get off the coach and go through border control.
