Terms and Conditions

Here are the terms and conditions of using the Eurolines Pass.

  1. The Pass is validated on your first travel day and determines the seasonal fare to be charged.
  2. Providing the Pass has been validated, bears the holder’s name, passport number and signature, and has not reached its expiry date, the Eurolines Pass entitles the holder to travel between the cities indicated, together with any applicable ferry crossings, road tolls and travel taxes. It is not possible to use the Pass for more than 2 journeys (i.e. one return) between the same city. The only extras may be for luggage handling applied locally. Youth fares are for passengers under 26 years, children under 2 years travel for free. It is not possible to purchase the Pass for groups of more than 10.
  3. The Eurolines Pass is neither refundable nor transferable. Misuse of the Pass may lead to forfeiture. No refunds will be made for lost or stolen Passes.
  4. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they have a valid passport/I.D. card for travel, plus any visas that may be required in the various countries they may pass through or visit. Eurolines does not accept any responsibility for any person being refused entry into any country included on the ticket in consequence of failure to obtain the correct and valid documents.
  5. Customers are advised to reserve each journey at the designated Eurolines office or coach station at least 48 hours in advance.

If a reservation is not made in advance, you may be put on a stand-by list if requested. All services are subject to availability at time of booking/request and seats are only guaranteed if a reservation is made/confirmed.

The first journey may be booked at the point of departure when purchasing the Eurolines Pass ticket.
  6. All tickets are sold subject to the standard conditions of carriage for the Eurolines member companies.
