How to Bus­about

Sunday Times - - Fashion News -

Bus­about cov­ers 15 coun­tries in 47 stops rang­ing from Am­s­ter­dam to Zakopane (Poland), so look at the route map and de­cide where you want to go.

Buses run from May 1 to Oc­to­ber 17 and tick­ets cover a set num­ber of stops, start­ing at R5 950 for three to R18 900 for an un­lim­ited num­ber.

Don’t rush through too quickly. Two nights in some small towns is plenty but, for a heavy-hit­ting city, stay at least four.

If you don’t fancy the rec­om­mended hos­tel, search for ac­com­mo­da­tion within walk­ing dis­tance of the drop-off point on a web­site like Book­ing.com.

Travel light. In some quaint old towns the bus can’t park right out­side the hos­tel, so you’ll have to walk for a few min­utes with your bags.

You can book through any travel agent, or at bus­about.com. The web­site lets you book your seat and ac­com­mo­da­tion, and us­ing your phone or lap­top you can amend your plans mid-jour­ney.
