6 Reasons to travel with Greyhound this holiday season

  1. Comfort on Greyhound

Your comfort and safety on Greyhound is our number 1 priority.  For most, facing a long journey on the road is daunting, however, if you are travelling with Greyhound this holiday season, you can travel with peace of mind and ultimate comfort. Greyhound is the most luxurious way to travel by bus and that’s a fact!

Our Dreamliner redefined road travel with its 5-star comfort and specifications! The Greyhound Dreamliner has two classes, namely the Luxury seats (upstairs) and the spacious seats in Premium class (downstairs).

The Premium seats are the most spacious and luxurious seats on Greyhounds buses. These seats are memory foam seats and recline to 150° and have leg rests and extra legroom providing maximum comfort to any traveller. Furthermore, you will be able to adjust your own air conditioning, air vents and reading lights to make it just how you like it. Each seat also comes equipped with your own armrest, tray tables, and charging points*.

If you can’t manage to book in the Premium seats onboard our Dreamliner, don’t worry, our standard coaches also come fully equipped for comfort and safety. Relax and enjoy the journey in reclining Comfortline seats with seatbelts, individual air vents, reading lights, armrests, and tray tables.

Greyhound coaches have onboard bathroom facilities which we urge passengers to use only in case of an emergency. With the pandemic rife, please help us leave the bathrooms clean once you have used them.
