booking bus

We are trying to book bus trips over the easter period but neither ticketbus or ado site are accepting credit card booking from uk

does anyone know if this is a common problem or just likely to be temporary

Any sugestions would be appreciated

Correct. The site does not accept foreign cards. You can book ahead and pay and collect a receipt for travel at any Oxxo store. I think you have 48 hours between booking and paying so, depending on your travel plans, you can book a day or two before arrival in Mexico.

Thanks for that

As we are on a very tight schedule and we dont arrive until easter period do you know if it is possible to book through an agency

I don't know of any agencies that will do this from overseas, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. Perhaps someone else will chip in and advise.

You could try asking your hotel to book for you.

A local agent won't help because they don't have an acceptable way of paying any more than you do. I suggest you wait until you get to Mexico and then book all your bus trips at once. Although some buses get full around Easter you can usually get where you want to go.

Good luck booking for Easter week because every Mexican will be traveling.
