Can I bring my under-aged child with me?
Of course you can! Children under the age of 18 are accepted with a responsible accompanying person. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are in this case: firstname.lastname@example.org
.Is the bus accessible to people with reduced mobility?
Unfortunately, the bus is not accessible to wheelchair users, as the walkways are too narrow. For any other disability, we should find a way to accommodate you: before booking, please contact us to discuss it! What are the dimensions of the bus (sleeping accommodation and ceiling height)?
The beds are 70 x 190 cm. Circulation on board is in the central corridor which is 1m90 high.Can I join you in the middle of the week?
Unfortunately this is not possible. Reservations are made on a weekly basis to allow travellers on board to improvise their stops during the week. We therefore have no way of knowing where we are in the middle of the week.What documents do I need to board?If you are a resident of the European Union:
- To travel in France or within the European Union, you must be in possession of your valid National Identity Card or Passport.
- For travel outside of France, we also advise you to carry your European Health Insurance Card.
- As travel insurance is not included in the package, we also advise you to have one for cancellation, luggage and assistance (see below for insurance).
- For non-French nationals or bi-nationals, we invite you to consult the embassy of the countries of destination.
If you are not a resident of the European Union:
To travel to France or within the European Union, you must be in possession of a valid passport and in some cases a visa. You will not be able to embark on board without these documents, so we advise you to check with your embassy and the embassy of the destination country.
We have no special restrictions in this area. However, we advise you to be up to date with the basic vaccinations and to check the health formalities in the country of destination:https://www.pasteur.fr/frhttps://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/conseils-aux-voyageurs/Do I need to subscribe to insurance?
Travel insurance is not included in the package. We strongly advise you to subscribe to an insurance: within 48 hours for the cancellation/multi-risk/complementary CB formulas; and until the day before departure for the assistance only. We work with Chapka insurance who offers various formulas adapted to our trips, according to your needs:
What happens if I cancel due to COVID19?
In these uncertain times, if you are forced to cancel your stay due to COVID 19, you will receive a credit note for the amount of the booking, to be used within 24 months of the original booking date. If, on our side, we are forced to cancel our trips, you will be refunded without any penalty.What measures are in place against COVID 19?
We ask you to come on D-day with a certificate on your honour that you have or have had no symptoms in the 7 days prior to departure. And we'll ask you to wear a mask outside te bus.
We have put in place all the necessary security measures to maintain a safe environment for everyone. The bus will be cleaned entirely according to government-recommended hygiene standards so that you can enjoy the experience in complete safety.
Social distancing being more complicated to apply in our case, we have nevertheless arranged the beds head to toe, posted the sanitary prescriptions on board, provided hydro-alcoholic gel at the entrance and inside the accommodation. The bus also has good ventilation and all sheets, dishes and household linen will be washed between each stay.
On your side, you must be in possession of mask(s) when you board the bus.
If you have any questions regarding these measures or about your stay, you can contact us at email@example.com
.Where and when do I get picked up and dropped off?
In general, travellers will be picked up at the airport in the city of departure and dropped off at the airport in the city of arrival at the end of their stay.
Departure will generally be at 5pm but this time will be confirmed by message (don't hesitate to write to us if you don't receive a message 24 hours before departure).Are meals included?
Breakfast is included. It is self-service.
In addition, your participation in the communal potluck for one meal per day is included in the price. This means that MagicBus is responsible for the shopping but not for the preparation of the meal and the cleaning of the dishes. It's a friendly atmosphere, we'll cook together!
Is there a Vegan option?
Unfortunately, as vegan cooking is a restrictive practice and not everyone is familiar with it, we do not offer a vegan option. However, if you are vegan, you are welcome on board: you will always have access to a self-service breakfast and a fully equipped kitchen to cook delicious meals. Of course, we will deduct your participation in the potluck from your price.How does a week on board work?
Before the big departure, about a week before, a Whatsapp conversation will be created with all the travellers registered the same week as you. This way we can send you some informations and you can also start talking to your future travel mates.
On the first day, you will be picked up at the airport in your departure city around 5pm (time to be confirmed via whatsapp). You can then start getting to know your fellow travellers. Then we will all sit down together to decide on the meals of the week according to everyone's tastes. With a shopping list in our pockets, we'll go straight to the welcome party!
On the second day, we will start with the shopping: MagicBus takes care of one meal a day and breakfast. Once the formalities are done, it's time for the adventure!
Every other day, we'll drive to different places and landscapes as we wish. The next day's destinations will be determined by voting with all the passengers on board. You will have the opportunity to chill on the terrace, go hiking, taste local specialties, visit a vineyard, discover farms, meet locals, and even use all the equipment on board as you wish: canoeing, surfing, skateboarding, board games, books, etc...
On the last day, you will be dropped off at the airport of the city of arrival around 10am. And we will leave each other...sad, but happy to have lived this experience with you!Are you a service provider, or do you want to host us for the night?
Wonderful! You can write me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
