Hello,

If you are planning on taking a Greyhound bus in the US between 1st January 2006 and 21st May 2006, you may wish to know what I just found out today when I bought my ticket:

You can get 15% off your ticket price by booking online at greyhound.com - just enter the coupon code WINTBB in the revelant box when purchasing online.

cheers,
steve

Great tip Steve!

Greyhound Canada also offer a good discount for students but Greyhound USA only give the discount if you purchase their special 'student card' first. It doesn't pay for itself unless you're doing a lot of trips in the USA.

Be wary of trying to use the VIP card to get Greyhound discounts. Although the VIP blurb does indeed advertise that there is an agreement with Greyhound USA, this has not been recognised at the Greyhound stations I've been to. Someone I know even showed the Greyhound staff a copy of the VIP literature, but with no success.

VIP also listed a Chicago hostel in their discount network directory that had never heard of the organisation, and thus did not offer any discount. Has anyone else got experiences (both good and bad) with traveller discount cards (e.g. YHA, BBH etc)?

Jawad


To be fair to VIP, their card is recognised by the train network in Australia. So one long haul train journey and it will pay for itself (because those tickets can be rather pricey). Mind you, I think the train network may recognise other discount cards also.
