While hopping my way through Europe I found that flying was almost always cheaper than taking the train. $20 to Norway? $15 dollars to Rome? Yes, please. To be fair, our bags were usually more expensive than our tickets but a bargain none-the-less. Although I have enjoyed taking the bus from YVR to SeaTac with QuickShuttle, travelling by bus is never my first choice…that is until I got to the Baltics and came across Lux Express. Read on for why in this Lux Express review.
What is Lux Express?
Lux Express is a discount bus line (if there is such a thing) that has some serious perks. With Vilnius, Riga, and Estonia well connected by highways and all about 3 hours apart, I looked into driving. Then I came across Lux Express and the incredible value it offers.READ MORE: A Perfect 48 hours in Riga
I looked at buses from Vilnius to Riga and was sold on the low fares. Then I read what came with the service:
Seriously. Free WiFi, hot drinks, comfy seats, AND in-seat entertainment? Although getting a hot beverage while barreling down a highway is comical, to say the least, you can see where I stand on this Lux Express review. This before I realised it gets even better.
I then noticed the Lux Express Lounge, the carriers “1st class” service. For a few extra Euros we got access to bigger seats, a workspace, and snacks. That’s an incredible value and a great way to travel. Never before have I categorised a post as both “Budget Travel” and “Luxury Travel” but that is exactly what this Lux Express review is all about. A pretty great mix don’t you think?
