Question travel by bus or plane? - June 28th 2009, 10:19 PM

I'm going to another city next week and here are the fares with different travel plans

bus: $321
plane: $415

The thing is, I know that by bus it's cheaper but it's 11-13 hours!! and by plane it is 1 hour! I don't know how I would survive with 12 hours! Whenever I go back to my old town, it is only 4 hours and I get soooo bored after the 2nd hour!

what should i do?

Go by plane, it is a tad more expensive but it will get you there faster right?

Hiya,

I would definitely go with the plane option. This way when you get there you will have more time to do what you want instead of travelling for a day on a bus.

good luck and take care.

I would definitely take the plane option. It's not substantially more expensive and you'll save the eleven hours (twenty two both ways?) so that you could spend more time in the city and there will be less hassle and frustration for you. You said it yourself - you tend to get bored after two hours!

Have a safe and enjoyable trip.


SUP BRO.

I'd suggest a plane as well, because I've taken long bus rides, and they're no fun at all. Extremely boring and uncomfortable.

I would also go by plane if you have the money. I just feel like wasting all that time isn't worth it. By the way, if you do decide to go buy plane, you need to try to get your ticket now. The longer you wait (and thus the closer to the date it becomes), the more the prices will go up.

Have fun and good luck! [:

Well if it was me I may choose the bus option but only because I'm a bit scared of flying. But for you I'd say take the plane as bus rides are uncomfortable and it'll be all hot and sticky if you have the same weather as I do.

Agreeing with the others, I'd say take the plane because although it's more then the bus, it's not going to take you as long so you won't be wasting as much time as you would on the bus.

Sounds good! I'm going to close this thread since the decision has already been made and I don't really feel as though we need to advise you further on which to choose. I hope you have a great time on your vacation!
