  • Beware!

    By trulyabby94
    I would leave zero stars if I could. I was excited to try it out as it was fairly cheap to go to Las Vegas. I was even happy that it allowed you to reserve seats for an extra fee. I was nervous about our group having to separate on the bus so being able to do that seemed great. The bus arrived early and I thought everything would be ok. As soon as we boarded we saw that there was no numbers on the seats and the bus had already made a few stops before us so we were stuck with trying to get seats together. We had reserved seats at the front and we ended up in the back near the bathroom which we wanted to avoid. On the our trip back to LA, the bus was late. We received one notification that it would arrive at 8:50pm instead of 7:55 like it was supposed to but it did not arrive until past 9:30pm. It was not even a FlixBus it was a charter bus which had no WiFi, no outlets, and like the first ride, no numbered seating. So once again we had to scramble to get seats together. I have since sent several emails and even contacted them on their twitter accounts to get my money back for the seat reservations and I have been ignored. I would advise everyone to go with a more reputable bus company that you can trust. FlixBus will take your money and they don’t care if you even make it back in time as by the time we got to the station the regular buses and trains had already stopped running.
  • Good ride

    By RubiG7
    The overall ride has been a breeze. The seats are comfortable. Reason for me giving it 4 and not 5 stars is because it is somewhat unorganized. The bus arrived 20 min late, it would be nice to get notifications letting us know this, especially for those new to this and the pick up location is not specified. Also, I paid the extra amount (Not much) to choose a seat. I chose a window seat because that’s what I enjoy. I tell the bus driver my seat number, and he tells me, “You can just sit next to her”, pointing at the person that had taken my assigned seat. I chose not to say anything because I try to avoid confrontation so I thought It would have been nice for the driver to tell the person that it’s time to give up the seat for those that paid for assigned seating. Also, the bus is not too clean, the floors have a lot of dust and hair pilled up under the seats. Will I ride again with FlixBus? Of course. It’s affordable and it gets you to your destination. Just don’t pay the extra for assigned seating unless you want an awkward ride if you chose to say something. :)
  • Location address for driving

    By AshMarieT
    Almost missed my bus took a lift to pick up location first time taking bus back home at night couldn’t remember location in dark so dropped me off at what a burger because said we had arrived at S Rural got on to app and walking direction kicked on and wasn’t at pick up had 2 minutes till leaving so had to literally run 3 blocks waving my hands to catch drives attention so they didn’t leave with out me driver nicely waited for me. Have to say this bus is amazing price is more then affordable for my work trips and such an easy rout if they get this problem fixed it will be 100% perfect nothing bad to say about this Business at all drivers are so friendly and go above and beyond maybe having an actual address if people are new to this rout would be helpful for future references. Thank you FlixBus for getting me to and from safely And comfortably.! You Rock just a minor problem.
  • Amazing price, gets the job done

    By Markkittus
    I don’t understand why this has such a bad rating. I did a roundrip from LA to SF for just $20. Of course this is not as flying in business in a plane. It’s a bus, so it’s not as chill as a plane, it’s a longer trip than in a plane, and more uncomforrable but dude, I can’t understand why people is complaining. If you don’t like it, just pay 6 times more and take a plane. But don’t complain if you were not comfortable as a king in your trip, because you paid such a low price. I really recommend it. I don’t recommend to get reserved seats, it’s a cheap service, so when someone gets off the bus try to move to another seat if you’re not comfortable. The only bad thing is that on both trips sometimes I got a bad smell, maybe from someone who farted hard or maybe because other reasons. But I’ll use it again, no doubt!
  • FlixBus saved my Christmas

    By Heyme985427
    I know it's a little late, but I thought I would share my story. My wife and 2 kids live in Berlin, and I was on an important business trip in Amsterdam. Being the clutz I am, I missed my flight... I was literally facetiming my kids and telling them about how I was going to miss Christmas when the friendliest stranger in the world told me about Flixbus. I downloaded the app, and WITHIN an hour, I was on my way home. On top of that, it was actually a nice bus! I've been on other buses before, but at this hour, for this price, I expected outlets that didn't work and lights that flickered. The bus seemed brand new and even had working wifi!!! I made it home before my kids even woke up. Just like Santa hehe
  • Horrendously bad

    By A.S.B.L.
    Tldr; horrible app, horrible service, extremely late bus, don't ever use Long version: First bus was 3 hours late, had to cancel and get a different bus after 2 hours or waiting. Was not given credit, given a refund, and told to buy a more expensive ticket. Was told I could change my return bus but could not through the app and office was closed at night. Was forced to cancel and get a voucher (not a refund). Tried to book new tickets with the voucher, app malfunctioned and charged me the full price. Tried to get a refund so I could use my voucher but was just given another voucher, leaving me with two vouchers (when I only needed to buy one more ticket). I called customer service to explain the situation and was told they couldn't do anything and referred me to an email address. When I emailed, I only got a stock email reply outlining their general policies.
  • Late and unorganized

    By putnica 34
    I booked two rides, one through Italy and another one from Italy to France. The one from Italy was late about 15 mins at start which wasn’t too bad. The one going to Marseille was almost 2 hours late at the destination and I missed my FlixBus connection to Montpellier. They sent me message that I was rescheduled for another bus that leaves 3 hours later. I waited. The bus came 40 mins later than scheduled and then the driver said my ticket was not valid! I showed him SMS I got from FlixBus about being rescheduled but he didn’t really care about it. Eventually me and a few others in similar situation forced him to call the office and they confirmed we can be on the bus. We started 70 mins after scheduled time. Terrible. Otherwise nice that they have wifi so I can write this review! That’s why 2 stars and not one.
  • Not real time update, limited information

    By MeWhoElseBro
    What it offers and how it actually works could be two different things. For example it offers the ability to see where your bus actually is but oftentimes you will get the no signal received message. The ETA is probably updated periodically, not in real time as I was still traveling on the bus where the app told me I was already there. If you have a connection you will not get the specific information at which specific stop your next connection is, just a generic information. On the good side it keeps your electronic tickets, which you can transfer to the Apple wallet. You can search for routes and purchase tickets within the app. When it works it shows the bus position on a map.
  • Make sure you calculate time

    By Jas09457
    Riding FlixBus is awesome and convenient but the app stated it would arrive at 6:15 am at the bus stop in Sacramento, Ca, USA. It didn’t arrive until 6:30 and we all loaded up by 6:45am then left. The app says we are supposed to arrive in San Francisco, Ca, USA by 8:15 am. We arrived at 9am. I think it’s important for the bus drivers to be on time per schedule because a lot of people have to go to work and such. But passengers, it’s important to calculate your time of when you need to get to your destination. This is my first time using FlixBus. I will use It again and would recommend it. It could have been the driver.
  • Poor customer service

    By UseOtherBusService
    The Flixbus bus app does not currently have a log in, which is not ideal when traveling. I accidentally booked a trip for the wrong day, and Flixbus does not allow you to simply rebook. I called customer service and was told to cancel the booking (for a fee per ticket) and rebook the right trip. I did this, and only after did I learn a voucher is issued for cancellations INSTEAD of a return. Now I have a voucher I am unable to use, as I don't live in Europe, because I was given poor info by customer service. Additionally, the first bus I took had a restroom with no supplies and the second bus had a leak which spilled over the left side of the bus. There are other buses in Europe, use those instead of Flixbus.
