‘Tis the season to start preparing for your holiday

 In travel tips

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, yes, the time to start preparing for your holiday. We can hardly believe how quickly this year has flown already and what a year it has been for Greyhound. Now, the holidays are around the corner and we’ve got all of the tips you need to start preparing for some quality down time in December.

Make a checklist

The last thing you want to do is leave packing for the entire family to the last minute as you’re bound to forget something. Make a checklist of everything you need to pack, what you need to buy (example: sunscreen, sunhats etc.) and start getting the things ready in drips and drabs. By the way, it’s not that crazy to start packing now, it will prevent confusion the day before everyone departs.

Arrange your Greyhound Bus tickets

If you plan to travel with the People’s Choice in December, we advise that you start making arrangements now. Visit our website at www.greyhound.co.za and use the online booking form to check prices and availability of your desired route. This way, you’ll know what travelling is going to cost and determine whether you need to save up still.

New clothes

Children grow so fast when they’re young so determine now whether their swimsuits still fit and if not, hit the stores to buy a new one. Same applies to you, if you’re not feeling your old swimsuit, see if there’s anything in the clothing stores you might like. It’s important to do this now before everything is sold out.

Travel documents

If you’re planning on completing crossborder journeys, the last thing you want is for your journey to be interrupted due to you not having the correct travel documents. Now is the perfect time to ensure that everyone has valid travel documents. Even if you’re only going to Durban, there’s no such thing as being over-prepared.

Get excited

It’s been a long year but the end is near and now is the time to really get excited about it. Don’t let work and stress cloud your mind. Get ready, prepare for your dream holiday and get your family and friends excited about it as well.


At Greyhound, we’re so excited about the festive season and we cannot wait to transport our passengers to and from their holiday destinations in luxury and style. Book your tickets online.
