And just like that, it’s almost winter chills. It feels like the other day that we were summering about but alas, time flies and the cold is here! But, when you travel on the most luxurious bus in South Africa, that’s not a problem, is it?

Here on the Dreamliner, we’re determined to defeat the cold and here’s how: With more legroom than any other! It means that there will be more than enough space for you to snuggle – boots, blankie, hot chocolate and all!

So don’t let the chills stop you from bussing. Here are 6 essentials to keep you as snug as a bug in a rug on a winter’s Greyhound trip.

  1. Wear boots – comfy ones!

Nothing keeps the body warm like warm toes so remember to wear a nice thick pair of snuggly boots. As things can get chilly on a cold and lonely road, your feet shouldn’t be one of them.

Our tip: A nice pair of Ugg boots should do the trick. Gentlemen, you’ll love them too!

  1. Wear a scarf – a stylish one helps!

Few things do their part at defeating the cold like a breeze-beating scarf. Yes, get cosy with a woolly neck-hugger and be ready for any chilly evening.

Our tip: Have some fun while you’re doing it! A stylish scarf is always a conversation starter.

  1. Pack a flask with a warm treat!

When evenings cool and the night sky darkens, a flask of good ol’ hot chocolate will do the trick to warm those bones. It is perhaps the tastiest way to keep warm this Greyhound winter so don’t forget it.

Our tip: Invest in a good flask if you travel often, but any ordinary flask should do the trick if you travel less frequently.Greyhound Busses

  1. Bring a bottle of water – winter is deceiving!

The cold can fool anyone. When you’re all wrapped up and the heater is on, your body can dehydrate without you even knowing it. So, keep a water bottle nearby and keep your body in tip-top shape.

  1. Check the weather – and pack warm!

We recommend checking the weather before you travel. Not only for departure but importantly for the destination too! Under dressed for a cold destination is a chilly ol’ dampener.

So, don’t let it be! Pack for the weather and be prepared.

  1. Pack a small blanket (or throw) – you’ll never know when you need it!

On board, we do our part keeping the temperature as consistent and as comfortable as possible. But, if you’re travelling overnight, things can still get a little chilly. Sometimes a lot chilly!

Our tip: Prepare for the winter air with a light throw. They’re easy to carry and great at beating-off the cold air.
