that is pretty stupid actually...(of them! not of you!!)

Too bad you don't do it the other way around, as the dutch site has an english section...

Here's what you can try:
On the Eurolines main site, go to 'country contacts'. If there's an office in the country you're currently in, you can probably make a reservation by phone through them (or they can assist you further). If you're outside europe, call the UK office. You can even try the dutch ofice, as most dutch people speak some english. I wouldn't try to call the french office, as French people often don't speak English very well (that's my experience).

Oh, ask for Promo tickets. Sometimes they have special rates.

If that doesn't work, send me a PM, and I can assist you with the online reservation by translating the important things from the french section for you. (thinks depend on date and time you want to travel)

(oh by the way: prices vary from 32 - 65 euro for a return ticket)

good luck!

Yes, Eurolines France website is pretty bad. It is amazing that a webpage selling tickets to travel accross Europe is only available in one language!
It is a good idea to call their UK office as suggested by Demian. If it does not work you can try the French office. The French are in general not very good at languages but most French people under 50 yrs old can speak some english and I would be very surprised if you can't find anyone speaking english in Eurolines main office in Paris.

Anyway, here is a joke I heard recently:

Q. How do you call a person who can speak 2 languages?
A. Bilingual

Q. How do you call a person who can speak 3 languages?
A. Trilingual

Q. How do you call a person who can only speak 1 language?
A. French...

Bonne chance!
(Good luck)

I like the joke Julien, and it´s so true. We love french people as long you dont have to communicate with them. Am a french passport holder so i guess i can say it. HEHHEHEHE

Anyway if i can help translating feel free to pm me Rohit.
