It is important that you travel with the same ID that appears on your booking. If you use your passport at the time of booking, for example, you should travel with the same passport.
Which ID should I use?
When you book a ticket on Busbud, you will have the option to select which ID you want to use at the time of booking, these include:
- National ID card
- Driver's licence
You can use whichever option is available, provided that you also travel with the same travel ID. Even if your ID is not checked at the station, it is important that you travel with it, especially for international journeys.
Do I have to use my passport if I'm travelling internationally?
In most cases, a valid passport is a requirement for international journeys. However, depending on where you are travelling, and your nationality, you may be able to travel with a national identity card. If you are unsure about visa and travel requirements, please contact your nearest embassy or consulate for information.
On domestic routes, a driver’s licence, provincial/state medicare card, military ID, passport, or any other valid government issued ID with a picture on it will suffice.
Important: Visa requirements
Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure you have all the necessary visa and travel requirements prior to travelling. Busbud cannot provide accurate consular advice relating to visa requirements.
