Best Bus Companies

Hi everyone, I am interested in which companies for long-distance bus trips in Argentina you would recommend. Have you had problems with any of them, or can you give some general advice? Does online-booking work well?I am collecting some information about bus travel in Argentina and it would greatly appreciate your input.

Hi AomiArmster,

Here is a link to a thread I started a few months ago asking some similar questions and getting some helpful answers from others: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g312741-i979-k3625…

We went with Flecha Bus to Salta and had a pretty unpleasant experience. From what we've heard since, quality varies not only by company, but also by route (e.g., Flecha might be bad on BA-Salta, but good on some other route). We didn't find any good online resources that compare companies unfortunately, so best thing to do is ask on some of the forums if anyone has had good/bad experiences with a particular company on a particular route.

We bought tickets at the station, so not sure about online purchase (though it looked like it would have worked).

Good luck!
