Tickets are sold on a name basis. We will also request your flight information and additional contact information. We ask this to improve our service to you in case you will be delayed. With this additional information, we can transfer you to another bus (leaving at a later stage) or another form of transportation if necessary.

Please note that once you have finalized your booking you cannot change your name or ticket anymore. We advise you to take a good look at your travel itinerary so you have plenty of time to catch your bus or return flight.
