It cannot be denied that buses are indeed one of the means of transportation used by the general public. As we know that buses are often used as a vehicle for going home to their hometowns. Even though they have a slow travel time compared to planes or trains, buses are still the prima donna for those who are on their Eid homecoming trip. When viewed in terms of price, of course, buses are considered more economical so this is the reason why many travelers travel by bus.
As we know that currently Eid is only a few days away. For that, it is time for you to prepare various things that you have to do before the Eid homecoming. One thing you have to do is to choose one type of transportation that you will use for Eid homecoming. Lots of people prefer to travel for Eid homecoming by bus. However, there are things you must pay attention to when you are going home by bus.
Homecoming Tips Using the Bus
Homecoming by bus is of course the most appropriate choice for you when you want to travel back and forth, especially with quite a long distance. When going home by using the bus, of course, it is the same as traveling back and forth with other vehicles. Of course, you have to prepare for your homecoming trip by doing these things. Here are some things you should prepare when going home by bus, including:
Buy official tickets
The first tip you have to do is to buy an official ticket first. When buying a ticket, of course, you are required to buy an official ticket at the terminal. Avoid buying tickets using brokers, as they will get double the original price. Previously, you certainly have to make sure to find out the credibility and also the roadworthy fleet for Eid homecoming. This is because many buses are not roadworthy, but are forced to travel. In general, bus ticket prices will be more expensive during Eid. However, there is nothing wrong if you buy tickets at a slightly higher price than a low price because it is for your safety.
Bring what you need
The next tip you can do is to bring the items as needed. Indeed, there is no maximum limit on the items you carry when you travel back and forth. However, if you carry too much stuff, it will certainly make you a little troublesome. It can also cause the things you are carrying to take up other people’s space and also overcrowd the bus. This condition will certainly make you a little uncomfortable when traveling back and forth. It would be nice if you carry two large bags and also one small bag that you can easily carry everywhere.
Stop at the destination stop
When you travel back and forth, of course, you are required to know the route of your trip where you have to get off. When traveling back and forth, of course you can tell the conductor to tell him when he arrives at the stop you are going to. Especially if you don’t go down directly to your destination.
Bring personal medicine
When traveling back and forth, of course, you are required to bring personal medicines, especially for those of you who have special illnesses. We recommend that you carry personal medicines in a small bag that you can carry easily. This of course really helps us so as not to bother others.
Prepare warm clothes
During the day you may feel warm and hot, but at night you will feel cold so you are required to bring warm clothes. Especially if your bus is equipped with air conditioning, then you are required to prepare warm clothes such as cardigans, sweaters and jackets to keep your body warm.
Wear comfortable clothes
When traveling back and forth, of course, you are required to wear comfortable clothes. We recommend that you fold and also store clothes in a suitcase or bag. When traveling long enough, of course, you only need to wear a t-shirt and cloth pants that can make it easier for you to move freely.
Prepare food supplies
Of course, you should do these tips where you are required to prepare various supplies when traveling back and forth. This is because when we travel, we cannot predict when we will arrive at our destination so it is important for you to bring supplies from home. Make sure you complete your supplies in case you will break the fast on the way. In addition, buses with destinations far enough away will rarely stop, so it is quite difficult for you to be able to snack or eat. By bringing supplies from home, of course you can complement healthy food, drinks and snacks.
Prepare a small fortune
Small money you often need when traveling. This is because you can use a small fortune to buy the equipment you need. For example, buying drinking water or a busker suddenly getting on the bus. Of course, you can put a small fortune in a small bag or in a trouser pocket.
It would be nice when you travel, you separate valuables in a suitcase or luggage. Of course, you can separate all valuables in a small bag that you can carry everywhere. This can prevent you from leaving valuables on the bus when you get off to urinate / defecate or when stretching your body.
Prepare a powerbank
The next tip you can do is to prepare a powerbank. As we know that power bank functions to recharge when your battery is empty. It cannot be denied that when traveling far, of course we need communication tools. If the communication tool, namely our cellphone, is not fully charged, then it will be quite difficult for us to contact the family.
Do not forget to pray
After we have prepared various things that we need while traveling back and forth, of course you don’t forget to always pray before going on a homecoming trip. In addition, you are also advised to take the courage so that your Eid homecoming trip runs smoothly and also avoid things that we don’t want. If your bus driver is a little speeding, of course you have to dare to reprimand him because after all your safety is number one.
Preparing all the things you need to carry when traveling back and forth is certainly a must for you. For that you have to keep your homecoming trip running smoothly. Those are some tips for going home using the bus that you can do during Eid homecoming. Have a good trip!
