Goodbye Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Hello, Luxury Bus?
As a self-confessed chauffeur and travel addict, I find myself constantly wondering what will replace the four key components of today’s journey experience: the taxi, the train, the plane, and the car.
I know that some people are talking about a ‘luxury bus’, but I have yet to hear of an actual prototype or an official announcement on the matter, nor have I seen any actual buses being built.
As I write this, it has been roughly seven years since I first learned of luxury bus planning from an article on National Geographic about the idea of creating a high-end version of the luxury coach service, which had been in operation for over a century.

The good news is, technology has come a long way, and modern luxury buses are now becoming more than a dream.
It took nearly a century for the idea of a luxury bus to come to fruition, but now, luxury buses are more accessible than ever, and are starting to enter the market.
While I do not think it will replace the four key components of our journey experience, there is no doubt that a luxury bus tour will help change the way we travel for the better.

In this gap, a luxury coach service is a perfect example of a new way of travel, making travel more luxurious at every turn.
Luxury coach services take you from A to B, where you are greeted with a luxury bus with a ‘no-frills’ interior, where
