- When buying a Eurolines ticket, who is my agreement (Terms & Conditions) with?
Eurolines is a federation of 32 highly respected coach operators
across Europe operating under a united Eurolines brand. The country
where a passenger(s) books a ticket(s) determines which Eurolines
company passengers' travel contract is with.

appointed travel agency, UK call centre or www.eurolines.co.uk, their

travel on Eurolines services on their own if they provide all
personal and travel documents required by their country of

of children and adolescents.
- Disabled Passengers. What is Eurolines general policy?
Eurolines welcomes disabled passengers aboard our coaches. It is
important to emphasise that Eurolines does not have direct

used across our network and therefore the facilities for
disabled passengers - particularly those in wheelchairs vary
greatly. Eurolines is pleased to provide this link to a list of
major city coach stations where wheelchair
assistance is provided.
- Are discounts available for disabled passengers?
Disabled passengers are generally charged the same fares as all
other passengers. However, for those disabled passengers
where their handicap requires a helper to travel, many Eurolines
partners will offer a discount for that helper. We recommend that
you ask the local Eurolines agent at the time of enquiry/booking
for details of their disability discount policy.
