Comfort on the bus
All routes generally operate long buses (over 42 foot). These long vehicles are very steady on the road and provide a comfortable journey. The length also enables good foot-room and reclining space between the seats. All seats have seat belts, use of which is mandatory. In some off the busses offers a 4-channel music and radio equipment which can be listened to through headphones. If you don’t bring your own headphones, you can buy some on the bus. Most people prefer to be covered whilst sleeping – some of our busses providing pillows and blankets in the luggage compartments overhead. The temperature in the bus is regulated with air conditioning and should therefore be comfortable whatever the outside temperature.
