Cons
IconNo weaknesses
So I am thrilled about travelling by bus. It's a stress-free alternative to other means of travel and, for me, the best value for money, so I really recommend it. Booking is very easy online and the digital ticket is shown on the mobile phone when you start your journey. The staff are friendly and always help me with stowing my suitcase in the luggage area of the bus. As there is hardly any foot traffic on the bus, there is no commotion on the bus and it is a relaxed journey. If you don't have the "nattering aunts" sitting with you, the journey is also without a lot of background noise and therefore very stress-free. All in all, I can only recommend and praise it.

A super bus ride from Kiel to Hamburg. Departure and arrival were on time and the journey was very quiet. I find it very relaxing that there is not as much running traffic as on the train. The passengers were friendly and the mood was relaxed, even though it was a night journey. As the seats are very comfortable, you could have slept well during the journey. I used the free internet and the time passed quickly. The bus and the seats were clean. The power socket also worked and I was able to charge my mobile phone. The toilet was freshly cleaned and there was no waiting time. For the low price, you really can't beat this ride.
Pros

IconPleasant ride
IconOn time
Cons
IconWeak internet connection
On the journey by bus from Kiel to Hamburg, the internet connection was a bit weak, but otherwise everything was fine. The journey was quiet and we left and reached Hamburg on time. The bus was clean and well air-conditioned. The bus was not fully booked, so there was plenty of free space and I was able to make myself comfortable on two seats. I like taking the bus and am very satisfied with the trip.
