Travelling by bus in Europe has become simple with the liberalisation of the long-distance bus market.
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.

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 /en/bus-Saint-Exupery-Airport-LYS-Grenoble is over, replaced by Flixbus, %URLBLABLABUS% 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.
