Greyhound灰狗巴士(加拿大)購票心得

Greyhound,又被稱為灰狗,是美加著名的廉價巴士。 加拿大境內的灰狗網站為:http://www.greyhound.ca/home/ 灰狗有各種優惠價格,較常用的如下:美加學生:     9折 (部份點對點有可能低至5折) 國際學生証:     75折 青年旅舍証:     75折 21日前購票:     低至5折 14日前購票:     低至75折 7日前購票:      低至9折 網上購票:    9折基本上越早購票就越划算,國際學生証ISIC、青年旅舍証YHA和14日前購票都是75折。 可是跟據我的觀察,它們好像還是有些微的分別啊! 我試著搞清楚,於是便以Calgary作試點, 比較由Calgary至Banff,以及Calgary至Edmonton的各種優惠價格。

發現1. 星期五至日以及假日的票會比平日(星期一至四)貴一點點。 發現2. 星期五至日以及假日並沒有21日前購票的優惠。 發現3. 7/14日前購票有可能比ISIC、YHA更便宜 。(由Calgary去Banff)。 發現4. 雖然21日前購票還是最便宜,但也不一定便宜很多。 (由Calgary去Edmonton,使用ISIC/YHA比21日前購票只貴不到$1,無需太早購買。)

結論:看來到哪個地方還是逃不過要比價…為了省錢,只好認命努力比價了。

灰狗相關資訊: 灰狗行李1件免費,第2件CAD$10 http://greyhound.ca/HOME/en/TicketsAndTravel/BaggageInformation.aspx

灰狗美國網 https://www.greyhound.com/ 這是美國境用或跨境班次的資訊。 但如果找的是加拿大境內的資訊,你只會見到以下錯誤: No schedules are available for the time period you selected. Please choose a different time of day, or a different date for travel, to continue. 由於它在填入地點時會自動提供加境的站點,因此剛開始很可能沒發現… 至少我試過好幾次,白花時間在美國灰狗網研究Road Reward。 結果加拿大灰狗並沒有的…嗚。

Discovery Pass 如果你有青年旅舍証,可以考慮Discovery Pass,可由7 days免費upgrade至15 days。 優點是能免除每次都要提前多日購票,十分彈性。 划不划算就看你能跑多少個地方了! http://www.discoverypass.com/scripts/booking/step1.asp?TourID=1432 Start of Travel Date (Must be at least 21 days from today to ensure that your Discovery Pass is delivered prior to your leaving home.)
