For Greyhound, What is diff between Advanced, Web only fare and standard fare?
I'm trying to buy tickets online tonight and it's after their customer service is closed. Because of my circumstances, I can't wait until tomorrow to purchase my tickets.
I get these 4 options.

Advanced
Web Only Fare
Standard
Refundable

Can anyone please help me clear this up and make some sense of it? Believe it or not, their website does not answer this simple question either! lol

thanks!

Also this is the chance for GLP to redeem itself, by answering this question and helping a long time GLP'er out. I've become frustrated by the amount of ASSHOLES on here and the smartasses, dumbasses and everything in between. So I just wonder if I will get an answer on my question.

Advanced purchase is cheaper usually. Web only is definitely not refundable. I do not believe the standard rate is refundable either. It won't make any difference where you sit, if that's what you're asking.

Does anyone know if you can purchase Advanced tickets online? I just seems confusing because there is also web only fare and so I just don't know what the difference between these two are.

thnks for answering this so far.

Just pay for your tickets when you get there.

Be prepared early.. get in line for the bus fast because you'll want the FRONT seats if possible.

The back of bus is where the bathroom is and its a stick hole like you wouldn't beleive.
Therefore, do what ya gotta do BEFORE getting on the bus.

15 seconds of Google:

Also, the Greyhound website will tell you what each one does, if you just go through the site

From what I gather the person who buys the web ticket has to be the traveller, it is not transferable.

Bring along a little bitty cup of bleach, to dump in the shitter when it starts to stink.

A little bit goes a long way. If you use too much, you might wind up gassing everyone on the bus.

I used to drive those things.

Refundable carries a higher fee because it is refundable.

Standard no frills cheap one seat

Web only you will find some specials here

Advanced- Less stops possibly


I don't take buses but I worked for Delta Airlines.
Same classes
SPEAK UP. SILENCE IS DEADLY!

I am currently experiencing life at several WTFs per hour.

Re: For Greyhound, What is diff between Advanced, Web only fare and standard fare?
My understanding is the following:

Advanced Tickets: These are heavily discounted for early buys. This is not unlike other travel companies. In fact, on the Greyhound website you'll see that these are limited. I hear with Megabus, they'll give the first buyer a seat for $1. If these are available, these are your best choice.

Web only fare: This is the price you get if you purchase your ticket online. This is your second choice ticket once advance tickets are gone. They're cheaper than the standard ticket if you buy it at the bus station.

Standard: This is the price you pay if you show up in person at the bus station.

Refundable: This ticket costs the most because it's like an insured ticket. You can cancel within a window or at any time and receive some kind of refund.

"They're cheaper than the standard ticket if you buy it at the bus station."

Sorry, I meant to say that Web Only Fare tickets are cheaper than the standard ticket that you buy at the bus station.

By buying online you're helping them out by helping to fill in the bus capacity electronically. No human error. No hassle for them. No line-ups at the ticket booth, etc.
