In 1985, several private European long-distance bus companies merged to form the Euroline network. More than 30 bus companies offer a transnational long-distance bus network covering the whole of Europe, including Morocco, and covering 600 different destinations in 36 countries. The international association, whose full name is "Eurolines Organization", is based in Brussels and lives up to its motto "Your connection throughout Europe".
The Eurolines network brings together 30 of the most prestigious coach companies, including National Express, Transdev and Deutsche Touring. The dense network extends from Portugal in the West and Morocco in the South to Russia in the East and Norway in the North. Tourists can travel from Portugal to Russia or from Greece to Norway comfortably on a budget.
Eurolines’ safety regulations correspond to the ones of the countries visited and also to those of the European Union. The individual companies of the association have international certifications such as ISO and many have been awarded the high standard, such as the Spanish coach ALSA with the European Quality Award of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM). All long distance buses have comfortable reclining seats, toilets, WiFi and various comfort levels.
Eurolines is an international non-profit association, its ticket prices are therefore quite cheap. The standard fare includes up to two medium suitcases plus carry-on luggage. Coach tickets can be booked online via the Trainline website or app.
