Discover Andorra

A tiny country nestled in the Pyrenees, Andorra is one of the oldest nations in Europe. Set up by Charlemagne in the eighth century as a buffer between France and the Islamic Moors, it became an independent, democratic principality in 1993. It’s the only country in the world with Catalan as its official language, although Spanish is also widely spoken, as is basic English in some touristy places.
The capital, Andorra la Vella, offers a few sights and some good shopping, while next-door Escaldes-Engordany lays claim to the biggest thermal spa in Europe. Duty-free shopping, winter sports and summer hiking are the main attractions of this picturesque alpine nation: to the northwest is the popular ski resort of Pal-Arinsal, while the hills around Ordino boast excellent trails and breathtaking valley views. East of Ordino, a road weaves through jaw-dropping mountainscapes to Canillo, home to a captivating Romanesque chapel, and near the French border are sleepy Soldeu and the busy ski slopes of Grandvalira.

The journey from London to Toulouse by Flixbus

All Megabus’ coaches have on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard. The Megabus service to Toulouse requires a change in Paris.
Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Megabus routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket.
Megabus put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom.

Travel insurance

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure individually with a private insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and medical treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
