Not so long ago we wrote about some deficiencies of Eurolines existing website, which is the main website of the Eurolines organization. More here. Surprisingly, the biggest Europe’s coach carrier, has the most inefficient website. It is known that nowadays a website is something like a business card and „represents” the entire company, and if this website has been created with the intention of exerting a good impression on a potential client, well....in this case we’ve got a conflict of interest.
