The cheapest average fare is the average amount of all of the cheapest bus or train fares available on Wanderu for a certain route over a 30-day period.
Bus and train carriers utilize what is known as dynamic pricing to determine ticket prices. That means that when a specific trip goes on sale (usually within four to six weeks prior to the trip date), tickets for that particular bus or train start at a certain low price and then get more expensive the more tickets are sold for that trip.
The cheapest average fare may vary according to availability and carrier changes.
For certain routes, some bus carriers offer a starting ticket price of $1. That’s usually the price for the first couple of bookings for a bus that was just released for sale. Therefore, the earlier you book your trip, the higher chance you have of scoring a $1 deal.
However, if a bus sells out and the carrier decides to add another bus for the same date and time to meet the high demand, then the pricing cycle is reset, giving you the chance to score a $1 ticket at the last minute.
At Wanderu, we always bring you the best available deals out there and we’ve got even more tips to help you score really cheap bus tickets.
