A new way to Travel

This post is sponsored by FlixBus

Before we had kids my husband and I wouldn't thick twice of booking a weekend getaway a few states away, or take a day trip to NYC, Baltimore or DC. We would often book last minute and take a bus service to the city so we could walk the towns without the hassle of finding parking, dealing with traffic etc. This was before GPS was huge, so relied heavily on paper instructions and maps, and traffic configurations and traffic was so frustrating. We just wanted to avoid it all, so this is why we took a bus service. Well recently a NEW bus service called FlixBus reached out to me and I wanted to share.

Flixbus is relatively new to North America, but it has become the largest bus provider in the world in terms of network reach, connecting people across 29 countries with over 350,000 daily connections in Europe and the United States. In the US alone, FlixBus connects more than 80 destinations.

When my husband and I were in Europe we relied solely on trains and bus services to get from place to place. I am so glad that more services are popping up to make travel easier and more convenient.  Back when we traveled we had to reserve online and get physical tickets, but now many offer e-tickets, like FlixBus. FlixBus has been pioneering e-tickets in Europe while competitors, legacy brands in the space, are still holding on to paper ticket transactions. 


We traveled before Alexa and Google Assistant were widely known services, but since then so many businesses are working in conjunction with these services, just like FlixBus. Riders can now research routes, check bus information and get answers to their travel questions with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.  As of 2018, riders can even purchase tickets with Google Assistant via voice control. FlixBus is the only long-distance bus provider that allows purchases through Google Assistant.
And if you are located outside of the USA, don't worry, you can still use this service in our countries, because they take other currencies beside the US dollar. FlixBus’ Google Assistant feature supports ticket purchases in four currencies: U.S. Dollar (USD), Euro (EUR), Polish Zloty (PLN) and British Pound Sterling (GBP).  FlixBus’ Google Assistant is also fluent in four languages: English, German, Polish and French).

So if you're looking for a bus service, check FlixBus to see if they have a route that works for you!
