Some intercity bus providers allow seat reservations.
Generally there are the following options, how seats are allocated:
- Free seating
Seats cannot be reserved in advance (as it is the case with most long distance bus providers)
- Voluntary seat reservation for an extra charge
With the intercity bus provider ADAC Postbus the single reservation costs 2 Euro, but as a ADAC-member it is free of charge.
- Seat reservation is obligatory
The allocation of the seat is done within the booking process. You have automatically a confirmed and numbered seat in that case.
