We have deluxe buses and our best asset is our friendly staff. We go the extra mile. If there’s a break down, we don’t look at costs but do what is most convenient for your group.

When you charter with ElboBus Trailways, you travel in comfort, safety, and style. You decide the places you’d like to visit and plan your own trip. We can also give you helpful suggestions or even plan a trip for you. Let us know your preferences and we will take it from there. We will book your hotels, make dinner reservations and get tickets to amusement parks, museums or concerts.

Our international contacts allow us to get group discounts on many popular attractions and hotel accommodations. Keep in mind that you only pay for the bus charter! No matter where you are going, if you need information or make last minute changes, just give us a call or talk to the busdriver. We are very flexible with cancellation fees and repayments. We believe that honesty pays for itself. Just let us know 48 hrs prior to departure or 24 hrs prior to when the bus is leaving the depot to cancel without a fee (as long as the bus hasn’t left yet).

History of ElboBus

Travelways Europe (ElboBus) provides personalized services for short- or long distance charters and tours in Europe. We offer competitive pricing, professionally trained, uniformed and English speaking drivers. Elbo Tours was founded in 1946 as the “Eerste Leidschendamse Bus Onderneming” translated: the First Leidschendam Bus Company. Leidschendam is a small city near The Hague in the Netherlands. Later Elbo was sold and moved to Heino in the eastern part of Holland and today ELBO is short for “Enige Leuke Bus Onderneming”. Translation: the Only Nice Bus Company. ElboBus joined the Trailways organization as a first European member in 2003.
