BUS TO MUNICH: Long distance busses are a cheap but bum-numbing option for travelling across Europe.
If you’re not booking far ahead enough to get discount train or air fares this could the way to go.
European coach companies come under an umbrella organisation called Eurolines. It runs coaches to more than 500 destinations in about 30 countries across Europe including Russia, the UK and Turkey. It’s especially cheap if you grab one of the "Europabus Special" tickets, which mean you might only have to pay €19 one-way Munich to Vienna, €29 to Paris or €39 to London.
There are also discount fares on offer for students and seniors.
You book online and print out a ticket, very easy, here’s the website www.eurolines.com .

If you’re on a whistlestop tour you might like the Eurolines Pass.
This is a multi-day ticket that lets you take Euroline buses as much as you want within a 15 or 30 day time span. It's the bus equivalent of Eurorail. Tickets start from €175 for 15 days' travel in the low season, see here for details on that one.
Eurolines’ Germany hotline is 069 7903 501.
Eurolines is represented by Deutsche Touring in Germany, you can find their website here.
