Eurolines is Europe's largest passenger coach network, bringing together 32 different coach operators. The company offers routes to over 500 different destinations, covering the length and breadth of Europe. One great advantage of Eurolines services is that the company picks you up and drops you off right in the heart of the city, minimising the cost of transfers.
Eurolines prices are highly competitive, inclusive of all taxes and tolls. By being under the Eurolines umberella, operators must adhere to a set of guidelines that govern service and sales quality.
Eurolines now offers a bus pass that covers 51 cities in Europe. Passengers receive unlimited travel between the cities, and all you need to do is pre-book your first journey, and from then on book as you go.
All Eurolines coaches offer passengers reclining seats, large windows, toilet facilities and a reasonable level of legroom. All coaches are non-smoking.
Due to the nature of the operation however, standards do vary from country to country. Popularity also varies considerably, with some parts of Eastern Europe and the Baltic States in particular being particularly big users of the service.
When travelling on a Eurolines coach across a sea border, passengers are required to disembark and pass through the appropriate border controls.
On some routes, Eurolines operates premium coaches, which are longer with additional legroom. These coaches also have a television/DVD player on-board.
Luggage & Facilities
Eurolines permits passengers to travel with up to two pieces of luggage, free of charge. Customers' luggage is kept in the hold of the coach, and will remain there until arrival or interchange. The coach driver will load bags on and off the coach. Our advice is to watch this process to ensure that your posessions are loaded and remain onboard until you are ready to take them away.
