Are you looking for a cheaper connection from Paris to Barcelona ?
Are you travelling in Europe on a Budget ?
Are you backpacker planning a Euro Trip ?
Then, this post is for you!
Here are my travel notes, on making budget connection from Paris to Barcelona in just € 29 per person. Unbelievable !!
WHY NIGHT BUSES ?
For those who are travelling on a low budget, night buses come with dual savings. Firstly, the night buses are cheaper than flights and trains and secondly, there is a considerable savings in accommodation or hotel stay for the night.
Though, it is well known that travelling through Flights and TGV trains in Europe is much comfortable and faster, but there are certain disadvantages like:
- Long check-in and check-out times.
- High cost associated with TGV trains and Flights.
- Airports are generally out of city and its expensive to travel to/ from airport.
- High cost of travelling with baggage.
Alternatively, night buses and coaches offer an alternative to the expensive flights and TGV trains along with following advantages:
- Low cost of travel.
- Savings in terms of hotel stay.
- No extra charges for luggage.
- Scenic journey for roadies.
Therefore, night buses are best suited for backpackers, budget travelers and roadies, who love the scenic journey though roads. However, I must add that these road journeys are uncomfortable due to long hours of travel. But then, you can always opt for premium coach services like Eurolines. The Eurolines coaches have comfortable and spacious reclining chairs for passengers in the Eurolines buses.
