Does it still make sense to travel by plane or train when it is possible to travel the same route by bus? Absolutely not. And the reasons are not a few! First of all, unlike what happens when you have to take an airplane, if you opt for the bus it is not necessary to go to the station hours before departure because the ticket checks and baggage handling process is much shorter.
Furthermore, other elements that should not be underestimated are the right to the free transport of one hand luggage and one hold luggage, the possibility of bringing small pets on the bus and the comfort of the journey, thanks to generally larger spaces. and the comfort of armchairs equipped with chaise-longues.
Finally, traveling by bus is much cheaper both than by plane and by rail, not only for the reasons listed above but also for the more flexible date change and refund policies.
