Design your very own trip. Choose your route around the European hop-on hop-off network and stop where you want. The Flexitrip is the ultimate flexible Europe travel option, you can choose anywhere you'd like to go and then buy the number of corresponding flexistops. This is ideal if you really want a true trans-continental flexible tour of Europe or have a clear idea of what cities you want to experience - perfect for backpackers and budget independent travelers.

How It Works

A Hop-on, Hop-off Flexitrip Pass (6 or more flexistops) will give you access to the entire Hop-on, Hop-off coach network. A flexistop is any time you jump off the coach overnight - compulsory overnight stops are indicated with red dots on the map below.

Flexitrip Passes for Europe are perfect for travelers and backpackers who are looking to go from point A to point B without wanting to get the whole "Loop". Your Flexistops are valid for the entire operating season giving you maximum flexibility (thus the clever name). Break away from the network and explore destinations like Greece or Morocco. Start and finish anywhere - just keep travelling until you run out of stops, or buy more as you go.

For example: Start in Paris and stop at Bruges, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Munich, Venice and finish in Rome - all with only 8 'flexistops'. Stay in each city as long as you like. If you'd like to make an extra 'stop' in say Salzburg, simply buy an extra 'flexistop' from your On-board Guide.

The Flexitrip Pass is valid for the entire 2013 operating season (May to October). Each "sector" may be traveled once and departures from each city are every other day.

  • Start and finish anywhere on our Europe map.
  • Travel at your own pace. 
  • No 'time-limit' 
  • Minimum recommended travel time: 18 days
  • Break your journey - make it into more than one trip. 
  • Door to door. 
  • Every other day service. 
  • Travel Dates and Accommodation - no booking fees!

Once you buy your pass, you can make confirmed seat reservations and pre-book your budget accommodation for each stop in advance. Once you have booked your pass you can just log-on with your booking reference number and start planning and booking your flexible tour of Europe.

Our style is to let you do the discovering. If you want to know about Monet - ask the Guide, better still visit the 3rd floor of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris (our Guide will point you in the right direction). You’ll get personal treatment from our crew so you can tailor-make your adventure.

A wealth of insider information is just a question away. They’ll have the latest deals on excellent walking, cycling and sight-seeing tours. If you’re travelling on your own they’ll recommend a bar or cafe in the evening so you can hook up with your fellow travellers, leaving your days to do what you want to do.

Our guides are all seasoned independent travellers, they know what you want and need to know. It’s not just all the cultural and historical places, they have local insider knowledge on great little family run restaurants, cool bars and trendy nightclubs, music and theatre - they know it all.

As you travel on the coaches our team of Guides are there to help you plan your trip and book your travel, all on their handheld computers. Before you get to each exciting destination they will give you the run down on what you really need to know. When you jump off the coach, you are then ready to discover and explore on your own.

Rest assured, your safety and comfort is our main concern with Busabout. Our approachable, fun loving, like minded Drivers are there to take the stress out of your travels. So while you're fast asleep in your chair or watching a DVD, they will be happy as Larry burning down the high way to your next destination.

Our Busabout Drivers have not only passed the hardest licence to obtain on the road in the UK but they have also undertaken 4 weeks of intense on road training to make them the best in the business.
