Too many buses available? How to customize your search results!
Just enter your departure city and desired destination, as well as the date you want to travel, and click on “Find Now!“. In a few seconds, you will receive information about all the intercity buses that make this route.
After clicking the “Find now!” button, all available buses will be displayed under the search mask. Once you find a search result that best meets your need, you can click “View Deal” to make your selection. You will then be automatically redirected to the bus company’s website where you can book your trip easily and conveniently online.
If you get a lot of results, you can sort them according to your own needs and preferences. Simply use the selection menu to the left side of the search results.
For example, you can sort buses results by price if you want to travel at the cheapest rates. If you want a ride with as few stops and detours as possible, it is advisable to sort the results according to the duration of the trip. This way you can see at a glance which bus will bring you to your destination the fastest.
Still having a hard time narrowing down your options? No problem! You can not only sort the search results, but also limit them as you like. If you have already decided on a certain provider, you can choose to only display trips from this company. If you really want to get off at a specific station, you can hide all other available bus stops with just a few clicks. Your individualized result list then only displays trips that really end at the station you’d like to travel to.
With the three sliders on the bottom left, you can additionally set a price range and narrow down the departure and arrival time. Is 3 o’clock in the afternoon already too late to start your journey? No problem! Select the corresponding option to 2 o’clock and you will only see long-distance buses that leave before 2 o’clock.
