coach from riga to tallinn

hi there, we are visiting riga and tallinn in july. would people advise us to book coach tickets online in advance? or just buy it when we get to riga? i have read some comments on tripadvisor of people having bought tickets online only for the coach companies not to honour them and then they are forced to get tickets again?

any advice on which coach companies to use would be great and also whether online booking is trustworthy?

many, many thanks!!

we used Ecolines from Tallinn to Riga & return.

Bought the tickets online, and had no problem using them. They're barcoded and they simply scan them when you board the bus.

Seats were assigned.

Would use them again

There are two coach operators between Riga and Tallinn - Ecolines and LuxExpress. The latter offers wider variety of comfort classes, but both are reliable and you can buy tickets in advance online.

Hi, we made the journey today. Bought the tickets from the bus station one day in advance although you can do it on the day. Paid 14 lats each. Bus had tvs at each seat and gave you headphones. Takes 4 hours 30 mins. All staff speak English and once your at the bus station the booths to buy from are easily found.
