Rent long distance coaches in Europe

Through the pan-european coach charter company Europe Buses, you can rent long distance coaches ("LDC coaches") for any bus travel across Europe. Of course, our LDC coaches come with professional and highly motivated bus drivers who do exactly know about the needs of foreign bus travellers during their coach itinerary in Europe.

The difference between LDC and local coach

Many people think that you can just rent any bus for a long distance tour since there is no difference in driving a bus locally or internationally. This is simply not true. A professional LDC driver has much more to do than just drive a coach. He needs to do an exact planning of his itinerary in order to cope with the legal driving time regulations in Europe, and he does need to be able to prepare himself for driving his bus through unknown countries and cities in Europe without letting his customers notice that he is as new to that particular region as themselves.

The same goes for the long distance coach itself: as opposed to a local coach, it must be of recent build in order to keep emission rates low. This is particularly important when travelling through Italy, where most cities have introduced city access passes the cost of which largely depends on the EURO emmission standards. Also, a true long distance coach needs much more comfortable seats (mostly reclinable), a functioning toilet, a coffee machine and more space for luggage than a local coach.

Another important detail when renting a long distance coach is the pricing of the tour. While local coach companies mostly calculate based upon mileage and service time, LDC coach companies apply daily flat rates which are only economical if they consider the average mileage of a coach travel itinerary as well as the daily maximum service time of the driver.

How can you rent an LDC coach?

If you want to rent a long distance coach for your bus travel itinerary anywhere in Europe, just send us a charter bus request to . Please include the following details in your bus hire request in order to facilitate us working on your coach rental quotation:

  • Meeting point and destination: we will definitely need to know in which city your long distance tour is going to start, and in which city it is going to end. This is particularly important since we try to keep pricing of LDC coach rental as low as possible by chaining up one tour after the other so that no coach has to travel back to the departure place empty and without passengers.
  • Departure date and arrival date: for the same reason, we will also need to know on which day and at what time your long distance tour across Europe is going to start and end. Without this information, we will not be able to check for existing bus bookings that can be combined to your tour in order to keep the pricing as low as possible.
  • Desired coach size: the one most important thing for the pricing of an LDC coach rental is the desired vehicle size. Minivans, microbuses and minibuses have completely different pricing than full-size coaches, and the vehicle size information is also needed to chain up tours one after the other logically.
  • Number of passengers and nationality: besides this, we would be very happy if you could inform us beforehand about the approximate number of passengers as well as about their nationality. This doesn't really influence the pricing of a long distance coach rental, but it helps us foresee some typical trouble with luggage space, water on board, air condition temperature etc. If we know where your passengers come from, we can more efficiently choose the best suitable LDC coach for your bus travel in Europe.
  • Approximate itinerary: last but not least, we need to know roughly how the itinerary of your long distance coach tour in Europe shall look like. Which cities are you going to visit, and in what order? Like this, we can better foresee the approximate mileage of your LDC travel, and we can include important factors such as eventual ferry fees, city access pass, tunnel fees, highway fees and bridge costs in our pricing considerations.

Where can I rent a long distance coach?

Since the LDC charter buses of City Tours Europe are always on the run and almost never return to their homebase, we can almost always provide you with a long distance coach in any city of Europe. Of course, the pricing level can greatly vary according to the nationality of the exact coach company that we can offer for your individual long distance travel in Europe. Logically, a long distance coach from Moldova or Bosnia-Herzegovina will always be cheaper than an LDC bus from Germany or France. But if you are lucky, and if your itinerary suits the planning of one of our less expensive long distance charter coaches well, we can sometimes offer you Romanian pricing levels for tours that actually take place between Sweden and Denmark. It's all a matter of logistics, and we are doing our best to keep LDC coach rental rates down.

We are currently renting out long distance buses with LDC driver from the following European countries: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and United Kingdom.
