How to pay for your Greyhound ticket
Many people don’t realise, but apart from offering affordable and great quality cross-country bus and coach travel, Greyhound makes it very convenient for passengers to book and pay for tickets.
Greyhound just recently announced that their tickets will now be available at selected Pick n Pay stores countrywide, which makes it even more convenient to purchase tickets. Before we give you a list of Pick n Pay stores where you will now be able to get Greyhound bus and coach tickets, let’s recap at where to purchase tickets and how to pay for it.
Before the addition of Pick n Pay, Greyhound coach and bus tickets could be purchased at Computicket outlets, such as those kiosks at Checkers stores, via online booking, by phoning into the call centre, travel agencies and of course, at any Greyhound outlet.
The difference with Greyhound’s coach and bus services, however, lies with the vast variety of payment methods they offer passengers.
Probably the most traditional payment method around today, but it’s far from being scrapped. When booking at any Computicket or Greyhound Kiosk country-wide, you may pay for your tickets using cash on-hand.
Debit/ Credit card
Also a very common payment method. When following more electronic booking methods, you may provide your card details to complete a safe and secure transaction with us. We will then bill the correct amount against your debit or credit card and your booking will be deemed complete.
Greyhound has a loyalty program which its passengers can subscribe to. With the loyalty club, passengers accumulate points from tickets they purchase. These points can later then be used to purchase tickets. Loyalty members will only accumulate points for their own tickets; points will not be allocated for tickets purchased for Family or Friends. You should always advise the reservations clerk that you are a Loyalty member, and quote your ID Number/ Membership number when booking a ticket. This is to ensure that your travel points are allocated to your account. Click here for more information.
Edcon/ Edgars Card
When booking via the call centre or online, your Edgars account card can be used to pay for the tickets as long as the account is in good standing. When paying with your Edgars account, make sure to present your Edgars card along with your ID when collecting your tickets at a Greyhound outlet.
If all else fails, you can check out via EFT by following the instructions provided.
