Travelling with FlixBus during the COVID-19 pandemic

Traveling during Covid-19:

For international travel, countries have put in place specific health and entry requirements. Please check all official regulations before departure:

Not proceeding according to the regulations may result in the passenger being denied boarding.

Covid-19 requirements to enter the UK:

Please check the UK government website for the latest guidelines on travelling to the UK from mainland Europe.

Once you are in the UK, if you are travelling onboard our services to other destinations within the UK, you do not need any specific requirements, however we recommend that you wear a mask onboard our services.

To ensure your journey is as pleasant and safe as possible, here is an overview of the measures we are taking to provide you with the highest hygienic standards:

Cleaning of the coach:

  • Disinfection is carried out of the vehicle after each ride, in accordance with WHO guidelines and regulations.
  • Additional disinfection of key touchpoints is performed regularly with the antiviral disinfectant.
  • Toilets will remain open for use and are disinfected and cleaned regularly.
  • The vehicle is ventilated before and after each ride.

Boarding and Disembarking:

  • Our drivers are equipped with health protection kits (masks and gloves).
  • In settings where face coverings are required in the United Kingdom there are some circumstances where people may not be able to wear a face covering. This includes, but is not limited to, people who cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability, or if it can cause severe distress.
  • Instructions are given by bus drivers and/or station personnel to keep distance while boarding.
  • Hand sanitiser is available for customers while boarding.
  • We inform our customers that boarding may take longer than usual. Please follow the driver's instructions and have your ticket readily available for contactless inspection.
  • Additional up-to-date safety instructions are given by the driver for boarding and disembarking the coach.
