Sindbad-Eurobus bus routes between London and Ukraine
The fast Sindbad-Eurobus coach of a Polish operator travels from the UK to Ukraine or vice versa three times per week in about 48 hours (depending on the destination). Currently, this service is probably the cheapest and easiest option. Tickets can be as cheap as £212 return (London-Kiev).
The Sindbad-Eurobus coach is a fast service, connecting England with Ukraine. The bus crosses France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland on its way.
The journey from London to Kiev takes about 50 hours. From London to Lviv it is about 42 hours, from London to Zytomir it is about 47 hours and from London to Rivne it is 44 hours. The coach serves more locations on both ends. In London, the bus stops at the London Victoria Coach Station. A detailed timetable is located below. The cheapest way to travel to Ukraine is the coach. If you are on a tight budget, then taking the coach in Europe can offer some incredible cost savings.
This connection can be treated as the express ukbus because after leaving the UK there are no planned intermediate stops up to the Polish border in Swiecko.
While offering excellent fares the Sindbad-Eurobus company featured offering a very high-quality service - you can expect reclining seats, extra hold luggage, free wifi, sometimes they offer you free tea or coffee, and you also have power sockets at each seat.

The second largest country in Europe - almost twice the size of the United Kingdom - has attracted visitors with its picturesque spring grasses of its vast steppes as well as with his long Black Sea coast and the peninsula of Crimea. In my opinion, a unique tourist attraction is the Crimea. Crimea is a peninsula in the southern Ukraine, which is connected to the mainland by only a narrow passage - Perekopski, between the Black Sea and Azov. Due to the wealth of historical sites, Crimea is also called "open air museum." In Crimea, you can find traces of different civilisations. Ruins of ancient Greek cities: Pantikapea (out of Kerch) and Chersones (in Sevastopol). In addition, more impressive monasteries carved into the rock and "cave cities."
Crimea may be called "the miniature world," due to the incredible combination of sea, mountains, caves, steppes, canyons and waterfalls. In the north stretches the steppe - hot and dry, south-central region - is a beautiful Crimean Mountains.
The port and trading city of Odessa is enjoying great popularity, especially among young people. Among the major attractions of the capital Kiev are the Skythengold and the monk mummies in the Kiev Cave Monastery on the western bank of the Dnieper, but also many other religious buildings, some of which are of the world cultural heritage. The historic centre of Lviv with this award, and around the city granted an open-air museum insight into their rich history. Useful guides: Lonely Planet Publications

Sindbad-Eurobus outside London supports many other cities and towns in the UK and London is exclusively one of many stops on the route of the carrier. Tickets are available online too. If your city or town is not operated by the carrier you can always travel to London with National Express or Megabus, tickets are available through www.nationalexpress.com or www.megabus.com
The operator provides 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 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.
This coach service departs from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. This coach service arrives at the main bus terminals in Ukraine.
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 a valid ticket guarantee 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. The operator 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. Return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.
Only Sindbad-Eurobus has an onboard crew!
We are delighted that Sindbad-Eurobus offers connections with the onboard crew. Only a small number of coach operators in Europe offer such a privilege to passengers. But what the crew does?
The steward or stewardess “pilot or pilotka” in Polish is rather a journey manager and range of their responsibilities is enormous:
The main duty is to ensure the safety of passengers, ensuring that the journey is the least onerous. Greeting passengers, checking tickets and documents required for crossing borders, assigning seats.
During journeys they filling out documentation and writing travel reports, coordinating the route, communicating with crews of other coaches; participating in the organisation of transfers. They also check if the driver loses concentration and if drivers not exceed the permitted working hours or going the right way. They also announce the upcoming stops, answers questions from passengers, offer cold and hot drinks.
Check-In at London Victoria Coach Station
Check-in takes place directly with the driver or crew. Check in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure. You should have your passports and other travel documents ready for inspection at check-in. A boarding card for each customer and luggage labels will be issued and customers will be advised from which gate their coach will leave. Check in time at other UK departure points is 30 minutes before departure.
Check-In in Ukraine
You must check-in no later than 60 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.

Will the international coach stop for a break?
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.
Carriage of luggage
Each passenger is entitled to transport two pieces of primary luggage (suitcase, travel bag or backpack) of total weight not exceeding 30 kg.
In addition to the main luggage, the passenger has the right to carry one piece of hand luggage weighing up to 5kg. Luggage exceeding the limit as mentioned earlier can be transported with the crew’s consent only if there is enough space in the luggage hold.
For each additional luggage (1 piece, up to 25kg) or for exceeding the permissible weight of the primary baggage, the carrier shall charge a fee.
Our Accommodation page offers access to over one million verified accommodation reviews via Tripadvisor, allowing you to see what other people thought of a place before you book. And with rooms or hostel beds from as little as £3 per night, you can expect great value for money when you book with Europebus.
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 for the whole journey and your stay. 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.
