The advantage of a coach is clearly obvious: It is a lot cheaper than a train ride and more reliable than a trip with lift and Co. Our experience with Flixbus currently relate to the routes: Berlin-Frankfurt aM, Berlin-Halle, Berlin -Bremen, Berlin-Hamburg, Berlin-Cologne and Berlin-Leipzig and back.
In summary, there is a grave reason has become known that would make it necessary to advise against traveling by Flixbus us. But we also see no reason the service or comfort of Flixbus over other long-distance bus companies particularly emphasized. However Flixbus expanding a large network of stations throughout Europe while allowing for very cheap, uncomplicated travel.
Here `s for booking at Flixbus*
Promise # 1: Free Wi-Fi in all Flixbussen
The company promises free Wi-Fi in all long-distance buses. Basically, is this true: There is free Wi-Fi. In part, the speed is unfortunately such that one finds it difficult to say you have the Internet. The good will is in principle available, but the technical implementation is not yet satisfactory coverage. but the use is very simple: you can find your device with the Flixbusnetzwerk and login you with your email address there. Then you have then access to the WLAN.
Promise # 2: Generous legroom
The company claims &# 8220; extra legroom&# 8221; in its buses. So even enough room for the longer among us. This assessment is certainly relative, and we know these promises him already from flight service. One thing is certain, the place is sufficient for average people, people over 1.90 but not sit really comfortable in Flixbus. but the seats themselves are comfortable, convenient & cozy and all have an adjustable backrest.
Promise # 3: Snacks & drinks
Flixbus says that one is supplied as a traveler on the rides always good with cheap drinks and snacks. Almost no one but reports that you get offered this while driving or is even noted. Also on our trips, we can not collect snack experience. If you should be but for a drink or a snack mood, you've got to probably only overcome and the driver respond to it (while driving is not allowed) &# 8211; he certainly has what it. So at least it let reports of passengers suspect. We will explore this in more detail at the next opportunity.Just ask and look forward to a favorable snack.
Promise # 4: toilets
Bustoiletten are no walk, but the toilets in Flixbus are no worse than others in general. However, there is a new law, according to which the toilet within cities can no longer be used. Therefore, the driver FlixBusse must lock them in these times. On the highway, you can set you free from all pressures but at any time.

Promise # 5: Sockets
No one should expect that a power outlet is located at its seat. This is not promised also Flixbus but they only say that power outlets on board. If you can not find them yourself, Can You Turn to the driver. This is a high inhibition threshold when it is already under way and you realize that you can find near no outlet. Therefore, if you are dependent on the power, to arrive at the best and ask the driver just before the drive where there are outlets in the bus.Ideally! Outlet of place behind white cover.
Promise # 6: Luggage
Free you can take one piece of hand luggage and two luggage pieces. When booking, you also get a luggage trailer, you can note your name on. Then you can stow carefree down the bus in the overhead bin her your luggage. We have experienced often that passengers have invited there their luggage themselves, which sometimes led to chaos because many people sometimes have their own things in mind. If you have problems simply address the driver who is actually responsible. In case of loss or damage of your luggage you have entitled to compensation, but there is a special form that can submit it at Flixbus.

Traveling by Bus: Always a good idea?
