Coach trips have been around for decades, since long before the arrival of large-scale passenger flights. They rapidly decreased in popularity with the coming of extremely cheap flights with companies such as Ryanair and Easyjet, but now they are making a comeback and there are plenty of reasons for this.
Not many people can honestly say that airports are enjoyable places to spend time in. The expense and inconvenience of getting to the airport in the first place is often a major issue for many people as well. Then there are the long queues, flight delays and oppressive security checks.
This is why coach trips provide such a good opportunity. Not only do you cut out much of the waiting factor and other disadvantages associated with flying; you also get to see something on the way. Taking coach trips gives you the opportunity to enjoy the scenic route. If you are traveling through Europe's many beautiful areas, then it is certainly a bonus to be able to see something as well!
Holidaymakers can book coach trips at sites like coachholidays.com if they like to have everything planned and arranged for them including accommodation and, sometimes, board. If, however, you prefer to go it alone, then you will find that there are plenty of bus links to choose from.
National Express, at nationalexpress.co.uk, is one place to start looking for both national and international bus connections. Between European countries, there are many other major international bus companies such as Ecolines and Eurolines. Check their homepages regularly for the latest special deals and new routes.
