If you travel a lot, you definitely know how important a decent app can be. Although all companies have their own web page, an application that provides you with quick and simple solutions is just what you need when away from home. The official Alsa app has come a long way but it finally seems to be getting somewhere.
Buy your bus tickets in the easiest and most simple manner, check timetables and prices, and access your personal area.
Buy tickets, and what else?
But what can the app of a bus company do for me? Well, loads of useful things. To start off, the most obvious thing you can do is purchase tickets. Just input your origin and destination, travel dates (or indicate if you want an open return or just one way), the number of passenger, if you want to choose your seats or not, if you've got a discount code, and if you're travelling with a pet, a bike or a surfboard.
Then the tool will return a list of all possible trips, with their price, schedule, routes, stops, map, type of bus and onboard services. Once you've chosen your journey, you can indicate whether you've got some kind of discount and easily choose your seats. You can even pay with credit card, PayPal, Cashlog, Busplus Points... and all the latter from within the app.
Request a Busplus card, access your personal account, swap your points for bus tickets, and access special offers.
But this app comes along with more surprises. From this tool, you'll be able to:
- Check, change or cancel your tickets.
- Manage your Busplus premium account (which is totally free and very advisable).
- Modify your profile.
- Check your search and purchase history.
- Locate buses.
- Look up bus stops.
- Purchase ticket vouchers.
- Direct access to Alsa's website.
- Search for contact information through email, phone or social networks.
- Listen to the radio.
- Find out about the latest news and promotions.
If you sign up on the Busplus program, managing your tickets is much easier and more complete, as well as building up points each time you travel with this company to you can save money on future trips. If you don't have an account, you can create it from the tool itself which will also prevent you from having to pay transaction fees.
