How do I book a ticket?

The easiest way to book a trip is using our FlixBus App on your smartphone. Your ticket is saved under “My tickets”. Present your ticket on your phone when getting on the bus. The FlixBus App, just like when booking on our website,  gives you access to our cheapest tickets. The app also features exclusive special offers. You will also receive your booking confirmation by e-mail. You can also find the nearest sale point or FlixBus shop here. Our colleagues on site offer the same tariffs that you can find on the FlixBus website, plus the possibility to pay in cash. Reselling agencies might charge an additional service fee. At FlixBus shops, you can also pay in cash for the daily offered rate, plus a service charge per booking. If there are free seats available, you can buy a ticket from the bus driver. Early bird tickets, special offers and group discounts are only available online. When purchasing a ticket from the bus driver, vouchers cannot be redeemed and only cash payments can be accepted. The receipt for the cash payment is both your ticket and you booking confirmation. Please make sure you have enough cash with you. Currently, payments with EC cards and credit cards are only possible in Sweden and Denmark.

How do I get my ticket?

You will receive your ticket at the e-mail address that you entered during the booking process. It is attached as a printable PDF file.

Do I have to print my ticket?

You do not need to print your ticket. You can simply show the QR code on your ticket when getting on the bus. This also helps protect the environment.

Do I receive an invoice for my booking?

Yes, you automatically receive an invoice for every booking. You can find it directly underneath your ticket in the booking confirmation. If you need an invoice with an address on it, tick the “I need an invoice” box while selecting the payment method during the booking process.

I’m experiencing problems when booking online – what should I do?
