Conditions of Carriage

Show Up in Advance
It is important that you show up in advance before departure. On most major bus terminals and bus stations, it is possible to board 10–15 minutes before departure.

If you are travelling with a discounted ticket you must also display valid identification. If you want to buy the ticket on the bus, please have your credit card or cash ready when boarding the bus.
Experience shows that it is heavily traffic on all roads toward weekends and on the major public holidays. This creates extra traffic with the risk of delays on all our routes in and around the large cities. Also take into account that the bus might show up a little later than scheduled at your bus stop.
Each passenger can bring 2 pieces of luggage (max 30 kg in total) placed in the luggage compartment under the bus. Hand luggage carried freely as long as it can fit under a seat or in the parcel shelf above. If you are travelling with more luggage than the allowable amount, it must be paid an additional fee pr. parcel. Extra luggage accepted (surcharge) if there is available space in the luggage compartment under the bus.

We recommend that the child is in school age and can take care of themselves during the journey. You as guardians must accompany the child to the bus, and must be able to present information with name and number of a responsible adult that the driver can call if something unforeseen should happen.
As a reassurance for the parents, children and drivers, we recommend that the parents are buying the tickets on nor-way.no before the journey.

Each of our buses has 1–2 child seats available, which is usually best suited for children aged 6 months and up. Next to this we also have seat cushions available on most buses. If child seats in the bus are already in use, ordinary seat belts should be used in the most suitable way.
