When Traveling Abroad, Use the Bus!

By Two Monkeys Travel - Contributor February 5th, 2020 Posted in Travel Blog, Travel Guides One Comment

What better way to see some of the most beautiful capitals in the world, then by bus? There are some great things that you will see along the way, you won’t want to miss a thing. Not everyone thinks of taking a bus but If you are driving, you will be too busy paying attention to focus on anything other than the road. If you are traveling by plane, the only view you will have is that from the clouds. You may sacrifice some time, but you will have a different, more efficient experience. Say for example you have to go from the Czech Republic to Germany.

A plane is too expensive, a train is less expensive than a plane, but takes longer to get to your destination. Have you thought about a bus?  You can take a bus from Prague to Berlin in under four hours, for $20.00. That is a fantastic value and allows you to see the sights on sounds between the two great countries.

If you have forgotten about taking the bus, it is time you took another look. You can enjoy your road travel, in the luxury of comfort and space. You can be productive while riding the bus. The time you don’t have to spend paying attention to the road, you can catch up on your reading, work or photography. A train may offer a more scenic route but is usually less direct or more expensive. One of the best parts of traveling by bus is the cost-efficiency. You can travel great distances, for a very reasonable price. Not only that, but it is much less stressful than driving great distances.

Something else to consider is the environmentally friendly nature of bus travel. It takes several cars off the road for every passenger, all day long. This, in turn, reduces the amount of traffic on the roads. This creates a reduction in emissions and gas usage. Buses are safer and more comfortable than ever before. With improved sensors and things like automatic braking and lane changes, it adds a layer of security on the road. The nature of a bus size can make it safer compared to a vehicle, in minor traffic accidents.

A Great Way to Travel

Do you have an odd travel schedule? Traveling via bus gives you several time options, across different companies. A plane or train might not get you where you need to be, at the right time. A bus might offer you a more time-friendly option.  When you look at all the factors in inter-country travel, a bus really is a fantastic option. It is a safe, efficient method of travel with many options for your schedule and budget. If you are going a long distance, they even have overnight sleeping compartments. It is a wonderful thing to be able to see so many beautiful countries and cities, with the ease of a world-class public transportation system. From capital to capital, country to country, a bus is a fantastic way to see the world!

  1. I can testify that taking a bus is the cheapest and best way to get around as a tourist. You get to sight see and for a more cheaper rate that taxis.
