In Brussels you check-in at one of the counters inside the Eurolines bus station. You must check-in no later than 30 minutes before the departure time stated on your ticket. Check-in closes 15 minutes before departure. From all other Belgium departure points you have to be at the bus stop at least 30 minutes before departure. The check-in will be done by the driver of the coach or local employees.
Departure from other countries: Check-in no later than 30 minutes before departure (Note: In London and Paris check-in is 1 hour before departure at the counters). If there is a Eurolines office that is open close to your departure point you can check-in at the counter - otherwise directly with the driver.
How do I recognize my Eurolines coach?
The majority of our coaches are in Eurolines livery. However on some routes the livery of the coaches may vary and there may only be a Eurolines sticker displayed in the front windscreen. Occasionally due to high demand for our services (typically holiday periods), we may put on extra services and these coaches are unlikely to be in Eurolines livery. If you are in any doubt - always ask the driver.
Will there be a sign with my destination in the coach windscreen?
No not always. Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point only has the final destination displayed in the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Eurolines routes include mulitple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop in the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination (or connecting destination) stated on your ticket your destination.
During the journey
Will there be refreshment stops during the journey?
Yes. Regular comfort stops are scheduled on all Eurolines services. Please listen carefully to the announcement of the driver about the duration of the stop and what time you must be back at the coach.
Will there be a toilet on the coach?
Except on lines to Morocco, toilet facilities are available on all coaches used by Eurolines. The capacity of these chemical toilets is limited, and would therefore ask that customers use the toilets facilities at comfort stops wherever possible.
How can I find the route the coach takes?

Is alcohol allowed during my journey?
No. Drinking alcohol on any Eurolines coach is strictly forbidden.
