Greyhound bus is one of the cheapest ways to travel in North America, as well as in various other parts of the world.
Greyhound bus ticket prices can be 1/3 or even 1/2 of the ticket price, making Greyhound an attractive alternative to flying.
But what if you're one of those savvy travelers who want to pay even less for Greyhound bus tickets?
Okay, I've got you covered. This article is about ways to reduce the price on your next Greyhound bus trip.
Did you know you can get a discount on your Greyhound bus ticket by booking two or more weeks in advance?
we use this option all the time when we travel on Greyhound. On more than one occasion we have been able to travel across countries for next to nothing by booking early.
we love this sale because it's not a one-time deal or seasonal savings. Greyhound offers convenient advance reservations 24/7, 365 days a year.
So if you're going on a Greyhound bus trip, do yourself a favor and buy your ticket a few weeks in advance.
Buy your ticket online
Instead of going to the train station to buy another Greyhound bus ticket, go online and buy a ticket on the Greyhound website.
Greyhound offers discounts for online ticket purchases and you'll be able to save some money just by using your computer or mobile phone.
The amount you can save depends on a number of factors, such as the departure and destination cities, the route you are taking, the time of departure, etc. However, the discount will be shown to you directly on the screen when you buy your ticket, so you can see how much you save.
When you buy a ticket online, you have the option to request a 'Will Call' ticket collection and have the ticket printed at the station. This means you can literally stand outside the station, buy a discounted ticket on your phone using the Greyhound app, then walk into the station to get your ticket. It will be the same ticket as everyone else, but you will pay less money for yours just because you bought it online.
Traveling on holidays
Here's a money-saving Greyhound bus tip that very few people use or even know about.
That's when I realized that Greyhound offers discounted fares if you travel on certain holidays. It's basically the same concept as midweek discounts: very few people travel on an actual holiday, most travel before or after, so Greyhound offers discounts to try and entice people to ride.
Sign up for Road Rewards
Greyhound Road Rewards is a great way to earn some pretty good discounts on bus travel.
After you are a Road Rewards member you start earning points with each trip you take on the Greyhound bus. For example, a round trip ticket earns you two points. These points add up and you become eligible for more discounts and savings with the more points you accrue.
Some of the rewards you can earn are a free ticket for a companion, discounts on food at Greyhound bus stations, and eventually you can even earn a free trip on Greyhound.
I've highly recommend that everyone who travels on Greyhound sign up for the Road Rewards program.
