Transport from London to Austria is carried out with traditional Eurolines vehicles. All Eurolines coaches have an on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard. 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 Eurolines routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to show 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. Eurolines 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. Eurolines coach services to Austria depart from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Eurolines coaches arrive and depart outside Vienna’s Eurolines Coach Station, Erdberg Str., subway station for the U3 line. Buy a ticket online now.
The carrier provides service to any person who has purchased a ticket. The number of tickets for the designated route is limited to the number of seats. Having valid ticket guarantees, you use the service (seat on the coach); however, it does not reserve any particular place.
Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. Eurolines has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is offered for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare (mostly the FunFare ticket), return tickets are much cheaper than two single fares each way.
- Before leaving home for your Eurolines service, check you have packed all documents and items needed for your journey, especially your ticket, passport (sometimes it is enough to travel with ID card) and if your trip requires a special visa to enter or transit.
- Arrive at the Victoria Coach Station in London at least one hour before the departure time, as check-in proceedings are quite lengthy. Customers need to check-in at the Eurolines check-in office located adjacent to Gate 19. Check-in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure.
- Your luggage should be marked tags bearing a name, address, and telephone. Please weigh your luggage at home.
- Never accept other person luggage for transport! Should you notice any luggage left unattended, never touch it! Report the fact to the station’s service staff immediately. Never leave your bags unattended!
- When approaching the check-in desk, have your passport and ticket ready. This will streamline the procedure.
- Border control & customs: When going through security check, place all metal items such as keys, watches, belts with large buckles, mobile phones, walkmans, small change, etc. in the boxes, and place them on the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine together with your hand luggage & suitcases. It is advisable to put your overcoats in the boxes. This will streamline and facilitate security control.
- If needed, remember to take your doctor’s certificates.

You must check-in no later than 30 minutes before the departure time stated on your ticket. Check-in closes 15 minutes before departure. If there’s no office for check-in, then check-in takes place directly on the coach. Services returning to London arrive in Victoria Coach Station’s Arrivals terminal, customers making onward coach connections will need to cross the street to the Departures terminal .
Once you get to Dover (for the ferry) or Folkestone (for the train) you’ll have to go through passport control – the driver or coach attendant will explain exactly where and when to get off. On entry at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal, customers will be required to disembark from the vehicle and pass through both UK and French Border Control offices and show their passports. In Folkestone and on board the ferry you can find a restaurant, shops, bars, cafes, arcade games and loads of sitting spaces – so you can keep well entertained for the 1 hour 30-minute crossing.

Of course, on the majority of services. All international coach operators provide refreshment breaks on longer journeys, especially overnight services. The European law obliges the driver to take a break every four and a half hours.

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 go without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Eurolines website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover a 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.
