Regiojet bus


A) Before the purchase

1. My destination is not offered by Czech Transport.

If your destination is not in our standard offer, write us an email with your travel details (When, Where, Number of passengers, etc.) We will get back to you with a schedule and a price.

2. When can I buy an e-ticket?

The booking opens 60–90 days before the departure and closes 24 hours before the date of departure.

3. Can I buy my ticket at a bus stop?

YES. We recommend to buy the tickets on-line in advance, but you can also buy the ticket in cash just before the departure from a driver. However it is possible only if there are free seats on the bus. The price is usually the same.

4. Can I make a reservation on-line and pay at the bus stop or on the bus?

NO. Right after making the reservation, you need to go to a shopping cart and pay the tickets. Otherwise the reservation is not valid.

5. Why do you require 2 emails and a telephone number?

The bus e-tickets and our emails are often directed to spam / junk folders and deleted. If you give us 2 email addresses it is probable, that you receive the e-tickets or emails from us successfully. Telephone number is required because the bus company send sms messages if the bus is delayed.

If you are experiencing problems with your credit card, please, use Paypal as an alternative payment option and/or e-mail us information about your travel plan so we can send you payment instructions online.

B) After the purchase

9. I have not received my confirmation e-mail.

Please, double-check your spam / junk folder as requested if using a hotmail, yahoo, live or msn account. For further communication kindly adjust your spam/junk filters. Or send us your alternative e-mail address.
