Even though most of our travelers are students, you are still welcome to join our trips as long as you are between 18 and 39 years old.

Your birth date is needed because only people between 18 and 39 years old can travel with us.

Yes, as long as there is a group of at least 20 people leaving from that city. If this is applies to you, please contact us as soon as possible in order for us to make arrangements. Otherwise, it is not possible as we plan the routes based on the demand that each city has.

Bus seating arrangement (Premium seats and Booking seats together)

There is the option for 2 addtional add-ons for all trips which allow you to book particular seating arrangements. These add- ons or 'extras' are referred to as PREMIUM SEATS and SEATS TOGETHER and their prices vary depending on selection. These seats are handy especially if you need or want some extra room while traveling on the bus or if you are travelling with another person and you want to sit together. The booking options for these are: Front Row (yellow) Get to enjoy the beautiful view from the front of our bus. Enjoy European scenery you only get to see when you are on the road.

Any other transfer with a company that is not working under the Wanderlust Trips management (ex: FlixBuss, BlaBla bus, Deutsche Bahn...) will not include premium seats or any special seating arrangement. Please do note: if the person that you are booking Seats Together with comes from another city, there is a high probability that this person is not joining the same bus.

What are my VISA requirements to join your trips?

Please be aware that you are required to carry valid travel documents as mentioned below. To avoid any inconvenience to the group, these documents will be checked for by pm2am staff before boarding the bus. Travellers failing to meet this requirement will not be allowed to board the bus and their ticket will stand forfeited. 

(Some nationalities are exempted from requiring a visa in Schengen region)

VISA requirements differ on a case to case basis. For more information about your specific immigration inquiries, please contact your country's immigration authority.

How much luggage am I allowed to carry?

For one-day trips you are entitled to bring one piece of hand luggage (max. 40cmx30cmx10cm) inside the bus, which must not exceed 5kg in weight. For multi-day trips you are also allowed to bring another piece of luggage to be stored inside the trunk. This piece (max. 50cmx40cmx20cm) must not exceed 15kg in weight. Failing luggage limitations will incur an immediate, non-negotioable, fee of 20€ which must be paid before travel. In this case, pm2am cannot guarantee that the items of luggage in question will be transported. For your ease and comfort we recommend you to travel with minimal luggage.

Am I allowed to bring a larger item of luggage?

Do you have too much stuff to fit in a small suitcase? You can upgrade your luggage size and bring a larger suitcase with you! Max size: 80cm x 50cm x 30cm (allowing for some deviations, max. total: 160cm); max weight: 20 kg. Upgrade your luggage by just adding it to your booking online for 9.99€. For the Lapland trips, please note that the XL luggage update will be 19.99€. You can also upgrade your luggage on the spot at your departure city for 15€, but we cannot guarantee that there will be enough space in the bus for it.

Is my luggage left in the bus insured?

During the journey, the hold luggage will be locked. During the first day of a multi-day trip, you may not have access to your checked luggage until arrival at accommodation in the evening. Then, the luggage compartment will be opened for you to retrieve your luggage. Luggage left inside the bus during the day is as "safe" as can be in a locked bus, however pm2am is not responsible for the loss of luggage in case of theft. In other words, your luggage left in the bus is NOT insured. We recommend all our travellers to have travel/luggage insurance which covers theft. We would like to highlight the rule that valuables (Passport, mobile phones, laptops, tablets etc) should NEVER be left on board.

How and when will I know the time of departure from my starting city?

Regardless of when you booked, you will receive this information by email at least three days prior to departure.

How and when will I know the time of arrival back to my starting city after the trip?

It is difficult to predict the times of arrival back to your starting city because it depends on many factors (road conditions, time we begin our return journey, breaks, etc.). You may ask your team leader on board for an estimated time.

Can I bring my parents or children on a trip?

Only people between 18 and 39 can travel on our trips, so this is not possible. 

How will I know which bus is your bus?

Our Buses will have a plackard on the front dashbord with our company logo on it. Equally, your Team leader will be able to confirm before departure what the bus company name is. 

How will rooming work for multi-day trips?

Most of our multi-day trips have stays in larger hotel rooms. A google form will be sent out shortly before the comencement of our trips to collect everyones preferences (e.g if you want to be with a particular person or in an all womens room). There is normally the option to upgrade to a twin room which both guest will have to book, these are first come first serve. Note: every trip has slighlty different accomodation and while this is generally what happens your trip might have different arrangements.
