Bus Ticket Booking Terms & Conditions

These Terms & Conditions are valid for e-tickets provided by the Student Agency carrier for RegioJet and Deutsche Bahn connections. The terms are mostly the same for the 2 carriers. If there is a difference, the terms are listed separately for both of the companies. Full terms in PDF format for the RegioJet and Deutsche Bahn buses.

The Czech-transport travel agency is an official reseller of the Student Agency (RegioJet) company.


We require the following information:

  • The passenger’s valid e-mail address (ideally also an alternative e-mail address).
  • The passenger’s valid telephone contact including the country calling code.

Payment process

To ensure the secure payment, you are redirected to a 3rd party payment portal. We do not have access to your payment card data and we cannot make any purchase using the card data provided by you. The payment is identified by the unique order number (Order ID – a 15-digit numeric string). The order is considered paid and received by us after the price is credited to our bank account. After that, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. If you do not receive the confirmation e-mail and/or your tickets within 8 hours:
1) double-check your SPAM (JUNK) folder. 
2) if the ticket is not in your SPAM (JUNK), you need to contact us on: bus@czech-transport.com. If the ticket is purchased for the next day, call +420 776877890 immediately.

Unavailable sold out tickets

If due to any circumstances we cannot purchase the ticket (e.g. the bus is full, a mistake in the booking system…) we will contact you by e-mail. The default guaranteed option is a full refund within 3–5 working days. We also offer other alternatives.

If there are any complications with the order, you will be contacted by e-mail. If you do not respond in 3 days to the repeated e-mails or SMS messages from Czech-transport, we reserve the right to cancel the order and refund you. Czech-transport is not liable for any damage caused in such situations.

Ticket prices, discounts

Prices change in time and depend on the occupancy of the chosen connection.

During the peak season (winter and summer holidays) there are extra buses added. They operate mainly on bus lines to London, Luxembourg, Brussels, Rome, Venice, Milan, Budapest … There is a surcharge of 6–10 EUR per passenger for all extra buses. The surcharge appears on the ticket after the purchase as a debt. It has to be paid in cash at the bus or online through a link on the ticket. This fee is non-refundable and cannot be canceled.

  • Children 0–14 with any document showing the date of birth
