Comfortable bus journey
We work together with Solmar for your bus transport from the Netherlands. A few times a week there are luxury Royal Class and First class buses to the Costa Blanca. These buses are provided with the necessary quality marks and of excellent quality. You can relax from the moment you step on the bus. The driver and hostess will ensure that you arrive safely at your destination.
Departure is always in the morning. You can choose from an extensive boarding schedule throughout the Netherlands. All buses come to Maarheeze, regardless of whether you have to change or not. During the bus trip you can choose from a wide range of hot and cold drinks at very competitive prices and of course deliciously cooled.
The expected arrival time in Benidorm is the next day around 3:00 PM. All our passengers are dropped off at the side of Gemelos 22, from where you can walk straight through the gate to our reception.

Royal Class is included in the ticket price as standard. All buses are standard equipped with air conditioning, double glazing, DVD, air suspension and a double braking system. There is also a refrigerator and a toilet for emergencies. There is a reading light and a blower above each seat. The Royal Class double decks have 50 seats on the upper deck and 16 seats on the lower deck. You travel in a very comfortable seat, with a seat pitch of at least 94 cm (ANVR standard). The back of the chair can be put into a sleeping position. The legroom between the seats is much more than on a city bus or tour bus and considerably more than on an airplane.
For First Class you pay a surcharge of € 40 per person per oneway. The seats of the First Class buses are constantly being adapted and developed in terms of ergonomics. The seats are wider and more comfortable, so there are no 4 seats in a row (except in the back row), but only 3. So you sit next to each other or behind each other. If, due to circumstances, a First Class bus breaks down, you will be taken further in a Royal Class bus or another replacement bus. You will be reimbursed for the difference in surcharge for the relevant outward and / or return journey.
Entertainment First Class
All our First Class buses have an entertainment system. With our entertainment system you can watch unlimited and free movies, listen to music, watch series, consult destination information and follow the route to your holiday destination live from your own device (phone, tablet or laptop). To ensure that the journey is as pleasant as possible for everyone, we kindly request that you put on your earphones / headphones when using the entertainment system.
