Three Tips for Booking Your Next Bus Trip

Feb. 16, 2021

Before you book your next bus ticket, here are some important tips you need to know to ensure your trip and bus meet your expectations.


  • Do Your Research


Not all buses and bus companies are made equal. There are lots of options out there, so be sure that you do your own research to ensure you are choosing a reputable bus company.  For example, let’s say you’re going by bus to York to D.C., that’s a long ride, so you’ll probably want some nice amenities.


At BestBus, we offer such great perks as free Wi-Fi, as well as a free bottle of water and charging units under every seat. And our Prime members get even more things like free movie streaming and amazing deals on tickets.


  • Buy Tickets Ahead of Time


Gone are the days where you had to physically go to the bus station or company to buy the bus tickets you needed. Now, all you have to do is use an app or go online to book the bus tickets you want. You can even see the different bus stop locations that are available, schedules (depending on the company), and even possible bus ticket deals a company might be running


No with that being said, being able to buy tickets online can’t help with procrastination. Always try booking your bus ticket ahead of time, to avoid a situation where all the tickets are sold out. This is especially true for busy travel dates like Thanksgiving, Christmas, The Fourth of July, etc.


  • Can You Reschedule?


Unfortunately, plans can change. And while you always want to be sure you purchase your tickets ahead of time, it’s important to know and understand the policies and rescheduling options with the bus company you are going with. Normally, you should be able to see all of this information online on a company’s website.


At BestBus, we’re extremely flexible and understand that things can come up. So, that’s why we offer easy rescheduling, and you can change your booking as long as it’s 24 hours before your trip… if you’re a BestBus Prime member you can change within 12 hours of your trip!
