From London to Bosnia & Herzegovina by coach
Once a week is possible to travel from London to Bosnia & Herzegovina with Eurolines coaches. There is one indirect coach service operated by the biggest European coach network - Eurolines, which connect London with Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia. In Bosnia the coach stops in Bosandska Gradiska, Banja Luka, Prnjavor, Dervanta, Doboj, Maglaj, Zepce, Zenica, Kakanj, Visoko and Sarajevo. However the current Eurolines services necessitate transferring from one coach to another in Paris as well as buying two separate tickets for each leg of the journey. The departure is from London. The journey to Bosnia can be conventionally divided into two stages. The first stage is the journey from London to Paris, the second stage is the journey from Paris to the Bosnian cities. Along the way you'll see amazing landscapes of France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia. When arriving in Paris, passengers must check-in again and use separate Eurolines service.

Discover Bosnia and Herzegovina
Already in 1984, when the capital Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympic Games, they had to offer not only a wide range of winter sports, but also an interesting, oriental-influenced old town with several cathedrals and mosques. Besides the famous rebuilt Mostar bridge, you can admire all over the historic buildings. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a remarkable country in the heart of the Balkan peninsula with numerous leisure facilities. Many rivers load in summer for rafting, and the National Park Sutjeska still encountered wild bears and wolves. The new tourist attractions in Bosnia and Herzegovina are three recently discovered pyramids. The pyramids are located near the town Visoko, near the Visocica and Kriz hills. Discoverer has given them names: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon and Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon. Useful guides: Lonely Planet Publications

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 provided for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare (mostly the FunFare ticket), return fares 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 journey 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.

Check-In in Bosnia and Herzegovina
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
This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by Eurotunnel or by ferry (check timetables for specific information). On arrival at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal customers will be required to disembark from the coach and pass through both UK and destination country Border Control offices and show their Passports. Normally customers are not required to be accompanied by their luggage, however occasionally Border Control officials do require customers to take their own luggage with them.

Carriage of luggage
All Eurolines customers must label their luggage which will be loaded into the hold of the coach and will normally remain there until arrival at the destination or interchange point.

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 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: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and the main 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.
