Has any of you ever used Eurolines?
I'm thinking of buying their 30-day pass for next summer but I'm not sure of how practical it is to travel by bus in Europe.
I live in Portugal and I want to visit several countries in Eastern Europe, so you can see it's quite a long ride ;)
Is it doable?

h Louis, I got a travel pass like you but during the winter.
I have not travelled during the summer but make sure all coaches have ariconditioning! Or choose June/September
I think it is feasable, I took me a bit of time to get all those scheduling right, timetables and stuff.

I travelled form London to Prague and Copenhagen to Barcellona in 2 weeks ;)

Yeah... that is a lot for such a short period...

I understand you need to book your next trip on the city you're departing and I'm not sure if It's easy to book a trip in summer. Let's say I'm in Prague and I want to go to Krakow. What are the chances of getting a ticket when booking just 3 or 2 days before? No idea...

What did you find of the buses? Are they comfortable? Do they stop often? Do the drivers speak English?

Dear Louis, you have to plan your trip in advance. Also make sure you have phone numbers of all the eurolines offices, call to make sure they got seats available.

Buses are quite comfortable apart from some old ones - that was few years ago, I guess they renewed they coach park.

They stop often but sometimes I had to keep it especially when teh trip is long. All drivers speak English more or less.

I know I have to plan in advance, but with their pass (and according to their website) you can ONLY book tickets in the city of departure. So if you're leaving from Prague, you can only book your trip to Krakow IN Prague. And I won't be there in advance...
