Bus tickets

My wife and I will be taking a one-way bus from Santiago (Los heroes) to Temuco. I was wondering how much time I would need before purchasing the tickets. We'll be arriving in Santiago on a Saturday morning for three nights, then taking the bus on Tuesday. Is there any chance of this bus being sold out, if, for an example, I waited until Sunday or Monday to buy the tickets.

thanks in advance


D.M. thanks for the info to my last question.

Overnight bus? Usually the better the type of seat, the easier it is to book only a couple of days ahead. Is it Cruz del Sur? They have an office in Providencia which is open Saturday until three, I think, if that helps.

From Santiago to Temuco there are a number of bus lines (from different bus stations), so unless it is on a long weekend when buses fill up more, you should be OK.

I was actually going to try to make the bus trip a morning departure. I'm not sure which bus line I'll be taking.

thanks again.
