Hi everyone!
I'm fine tunning and have gotten down to the bus route, timetable and costings.

I have all the information I need using Oltursa and Cruz Del Sur bus companies, both the most recommended, but cruz del sur does not go from Ica to Arequipa, and Oltursa don't show thier prices.

So what I need to know is how much will it be from Ica to Arequipa with Oltursa?
How easy is it to just turn up and catch the bus we want?
Or should I prebook my tickets? I would prefer to stay as flexible as possible, I have a lot to fit in!

Thanks for your help guys
xx

  • In my experience, ticket prices quoted on the web are entirely different (and often, higher) than the real price
  • It's very easy just to turn up. Popular routes like Ica - Arequipa tend to have frequent service. In all my SA experience, I never had to wait more than 24 hours for a bus
  • No need to prebook. If you book your onward journey upon arrival, in 99,99% of all cases that is timely enough

That's great Bentivogli, thank you!
I've got a plan for when and where we're going so I can just book the departure on arrival, perfect!!
