All FlixBus tickets are nonrefundable. However, you can change your reservation to another date or time.

Changes can be made up to 15 minutes before departure on the FlixBus website or at a FlixBus travel counter.

In case you need to change the name of the passenger traveling, you may do so at no cost unless the trip at the time of change is more expensive than the price of the trip when originally booked, in which case you will be charged the difference.

Yes, FlixBus offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with FlixBus will have WiFi as advertised, some buses might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. FlixBus WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.
Yes, there are power outlets onboard FlixBus buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.
Since FlixBus might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
