Tips for long bus drives
You’ll may need to transfer bus on a long trip, so pack light in order to not have to lift heavy baggage.
Pack a blanket and neck pillow
A blanket and neck pillow can help you get cozy and help you sleep during your bus ride. Also, the blanket is a life safer, as it can get quite cold in the bus thanks to the air conditioning. Much like in an airplane, we recommend you bring additional layers of clothes to stay warm.
Use earplugs and an eye mask
Earplugs and an eye mask will help you stay undisturbed during your trip. Other passengers might get noisy or turn on and off their light. Also, you may wake up from passengers simply getting on or off the bus (or going to the washroom).
Let’s admit it: Washrooms are gross no matter if on the airplane, on the train, or on the bus. Just wipe your hands with your disinfectant tissues and you’re fine for the rest of the trip.
Pack some snacks and drinks
Whereas buses usually make a few stops to refuel and let people buy something to eat, those eateries tend to be expensive. Pack some snacks and drinks – not only is this permitted on buses, but it’s also much cheaper.

Drink isotonic or other energy drinks instead of water
Having to use the washroom can often be an issue on any trip. You can prevent this by drinking fast hydration drinks or other energy drinks to keep you hydrated.
