Which company to choose to find a cheap bus ticket?

Finding a cheap bus ticket is not always easy. It is indeed sometimes difficult to find one's way around with all the coach companies present in France. Indeed, ticket prices vary according to the season, the day of the week, the timetable, but also and above all according to how full the bus is. It's the game of supply and demand.

But then which bus company is really the cheapest right now? In reality, there is no company that is cheaper, because prices change all the time. That's why you have to go through Kombo to find the best prices.

Our tips for cheap bus tickets

As with most means of transport such as the train and airplane, the best way to find a cheap bus ticket is still to book your bus ticket in advance. Thanks to the analysis of several million long distance bus tickets, we advise you to book 3 weeks in advance in order to get the best prices for your tickets.

Our second trick is to use our search engine. Indeed our algorithm makes it possible to combine several companies on long distance routes. This allows you to pay on average 30% less while saving time during your connection.

You will have understood that the magic recipe to find a cheap bus ticket is to plan your trip in advance and compare prices of low cost bus companies like Flixbus, BlaBlaBus or Alsa. You can also opt for the night bus, which will not only save you a night in a hotel but also make your journey go faster.

The low-cost bus market in France and Europe

The loi macron adopted in 2015 has made it possible to liberalise the bus market in France. New lines have seen the light of day such as the buses Paris-Bordeaux, the buses Paris-Lille or the buses Lyon-Grenoble. The monopoly of Eurolines is over, replaced by Flixbus, BlaBlaBus and Isilines. This competition brought down the prices of cheap bus travel in France and across Europe. The carpooling of Blablacar has also suffered from the new loi macron. Indeed, European coach operators offer intra-European journeys at unbeatable prices. This is notably the case of the English bus company National Express or the Italian bus company Baltour.
