Ever considered getting a bus pass or train pass for your travels? If you plan on making several journeys around Europe, a bus or train pass is often the cheapest option. These passes do tie you in to making a number of journeys with them, so assess your options wisely to make sure a bus or train pass is what you need.
Bus passes for Spain and the rest of Europe
- Busabout Network Bus Pass
Cheaper than a rail pass, Busabout is a cross between a bus pass and an organized tour - follow their routes around Europe at a fraction of the Eurail price.
Busabout is popular with young Australians and New Zealanders and is as much about the drinking and socialising as it is about seeing Spain and the rest of Europe.
- Eurolines Network Bus Pass
Choose from a 15- or 30-day pass for unlimited travel around Europe.
My calculations suggest that the only way to get your money's worth from the Eurolines pass is to take a long-distance bus journey approximately once every three days. Considering the length of most Eurolines journeys, you'd never get to a time to see any sights!
