There are quicker ways to travel from Barcelona to Split but this trip takes you via Dutch coffee shops, the Berlin Wall, Czech castles and the ruin bars of Budapest. Try having that much fun on a plane. Go crazy in Spain’s nightlife, then travel up the Atlantic coast. Linger over the fabulous Chateaux of the Loire valley, and then explore the sights of Paris. Nosy people watchers will be in heaven in the café culture of Vienna. Venture on into Poland and rave in Krakow, before breathing in the fresh mountain air of the Tatra mountains in Zakopane. Make sure you enjoy a hearty bowl of goulash in Budapest before finishing up on the dazzlingly pretty Croatian coast.

Before you Book

The best things in life aren’t planned. So our trips give you the flexibility to chop and change your plans on the go. But we also want you to get the most out of your time abroad, so there are a few of things we’d like you to (roughly) plan.

You need to know your starting city. You can call us and change this later, but we need a destination for our booking techno-wizardry to work.

And we’d like a starting date so we can tell how busy the buses are going to be. You can alter this on MyTrip or by giving us a quick call. For more information download our Planning PDF

Planning With MyTrip

Let’s be honest: booking and organising travel isn’t as fun
as travel itself. But it’s necessary. And MyTrip is our way of making it easy
as possible. It’s an online travel planning tool that lets you book your beds
and travel days on the Hop-on Hop-off network. And don’t worry if you’re
indecisive, you can use MyTrip to change your plans on the go.


  • Once you’ve booked your trip you’ll receive a client reference number
  • Go to Busabout.com/mytrip
  • Use your client reference to create your own password to login
  • Once you’ve logged in you can book your coaches and beds at our Pick-Up Point recommended accommodation (no booking fees)
  • Use MyTrip to keep an eye on coach availability, add and change your coach days or even book another trip
  • Get chatting to fellow travellers through the Trip Mates tab in MyTrip
