This bus service will take you from Delhi to London via 18 countries in 70 days
For travelers planning the ultimate long road trip of a lifetime, Adventures Overland has announced plans to restart its bus service from Delhi to London with travel normalizing across the Indo-Burma border.
The service is expected to start in September this year with the departure of luxury buses offering state-of-the-art facilities from Delhi.
Once the route is finalized, participants in Adventures Overland’s Bus to London initiative will be able to travel to 18 countries over a distance of approximately 20,000 kilometers in 70 days.
The whole road trip will cost you Rs 15 lakhs. The price includes all services, such as tickets, visas and accommodation in various countries.
It will be the second time in 46 years that people will be able to travel by bus from Delhi to London. A similar bus service was unveiled by a British company in 1957 which linked Kolkata to London via Delhi.
The service was, however, discontinued a few years after the bus encountered an accident. After that, a company by the name of Albert Tours started a double-decker bus service between Sydney-India-London which continued until 1976 but was stopped due to internal conflict in Iran and tensions between India and Pakistan.
The news bus service will bypass all routes due to which previous bus services were interrupted. He will now travel to France via Myanmar, Thailand, China and Kyrgyzstan, rather than Pakistan and Afghanistan. Additionally, a cruise ship will also be used to cross the English Channel.
A ferry service will be used to transport the bus from Calais, France to Dover, England, and will take approximately two hours to complete. The bus will then leave for London.
The bus will have 20 seats and each of the passengers will have their cabin. There will be everything, including restaurants, bars and sleeping accommodations. You can travel on this bus with all the necessary documents, including your visa.
