Where we go

Freestyle Europe with Busabout

Hitch a ride, see the world and exercise your freedom to choose with the Busabout experts.

Here’s the thing – you’re on holiday – time off from the real world. So there shouldn’t be rules, schedules, or people telling you where you should be. You may just want to tell them where to go! That’s why Busabout trips work so well.

Busabout is not your average travel company. They’re for the wild at heart, the ones with swagger in their step and a twinkle in their eye. The ones that take the road less travelled. Busabout brings its customers a freestyle form of travel with a hop-on, hop-off flexible coach network. It’s easy to jump on and off too – just check out the Busabout timetable online.

With Busabout, you can hitch a ride around heaps of countries in Eastern Europe, Western Europe and even Morocco and Egypt. For Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the south of England, jump onboard Haggis and Shamrocker.

And when you’re onboard with Busabout, you’ll be travelling with like-minded people. Busabout guides are travellers too and that means they know what makes for an unforgettable trip. If you fancy, they can show you around, but hey, that’s totally up to you.

You see, they understand it’s our human right to choose. Cookies and cream or strawberry cheesecake. France or Spain. Hit snooze or get up. Busabout is all about choice and freedom for you, you freestyle traveller.

Trip Styles

Hop-on, Hop-off - Loop passes
Don’t know exactly where you want to go? Or for how long? Loop passes are for you! There are 3 loops covering the north, south and west of Europe. Trips run from May to October.

Hop-on, Hop-off – Flexitrip passes
Busabout doesn’t like rules either. That’s why they offer Flexi passes. Pick your dream destinations and select a minimum of 6 stops. But you can always add more. Flexi, remember?

Hop-on, Hop-off – One-Way passes
With the One-Way pass, you don’t need to stop in the same place twice. Land in one destination and get to another point, with loads of adventure in between.

Adventures
Step one. Pick your fave European country. Two, get totally immersed in its awesome culture. Three, have the time of your life! This option includes a guide, transportation, accommodation and other options.

Treks
Make your own tracks with treks. Explore the exotic traditions, cuisine and landscape of Eastern Europe. You’ll have a guide show you the way and get other inclusions like accommodation, a driver and added extras.

Festivals
Festivals are awesome at home, right? Imagine them in Europe! Go to some of the best like La Tomatina, Oktoberfest and many you haven’t heard of…yet! You can camp in true festival style or stay in a hostel, too.
