Right on time for the International Tourism Market in Berlin, Rocket Internet launches their online bus portal KlickBus in Germany. The portal which cooperates with highly recognisedbus providers such as the ADAC Postbus, FlixBus and meinfernbus.de, enables travelers to book the quickest and cheapest bus connections in Germany. KlickBus does not only offer comparisons on diverse offers from various bus providers, but also the ability for people to make direct bookings on www.klickbus.de.
Felix Hartz, Country Manager at KlickBus: “Since the liberalization of the German bus market over a year ago several long distant bus providers have now been entering the market. With KlickBus, travelers have now an ideal overview over the constantly growing amount of long distant bus offers. Our price comparison portal enables customers to find the most suitable offers in only a few simple clicks. We offer our customers the same transparency and simplicity they already know from popular plane and hotel booking websites. This is not only beneficial for the travelers, but also for the bus providers as we redirect customers to their websites as well.”
Bus services for travelers in Germany are an increasingly popular travel choice and are cheaper and more environmentally friendly compared to the train, plane and rideshare opportunities. Through the simplified booking and the wide range of routes, KlickBus will excite even more travelers for using bus journeys in future. With over 120 bus providers and over 5,100 journeys per week across Germany, to and from especially small and mid-sized cities as well as economically underdeveloped areas, people will benefit from the steady growing use of long distant bus connections. On www.klickbus.de, users can request specific dates, prices, departures and place of arrival. Additionally, travelers can also receive detailed information regarding facilities such as WLAN, air conditioning, catering or luggage allowances on the cooperation partners’ websites.
The booking portal is a free of charge platform and is accessible in only a few steps: The customer clicks on www.klickbus.de and selects dates, a price as well as departure and place of arrival. The customer then chooses the best offer and pays directly via credit card, direct debit, PayPal, GiroPay or instant bank transfer. Within only a few minutes, the customer then receives a confirmation e-mail for the desired booking with their ticket attached. Additionally, customers can also book their tickets via telephone.
