Coaches on the network depart every 2nd day from May til October. There is a Busabout guide and a driver on every coach. Relax between cities on their 5 star coaches fitted with air conditioning, iPod chargers, first class entertainment system including TV's and relax in their reclining seats. Best of all the guides are there to help, offering expert advice and information at each location and while on the coach heading to your destination. Busabout Europe also include photo stops along the way at some of Europe's iconic buildings, panoramas and unique destinations that you may never have heard of before.

Busabout also have selected hostels in each city so you can just simply jump off the coach when you get to your stop and walk in the door. However, if you have family or friends in that city or just want to stay somewhere else you are welcome to. Just use that hostel as the 'bus stop" when you want to jump on next.
