Many people in South Africa do not have access to the internet and for this reason, the old fashion way of physically paying for your ticket at a ticket sales point is still the main way which people are booking for this bus trips. Some of the major bus transport companies have online booking facilities for those who
are interested in booking online, and it does work better in some cases.

If one tries to book online and does enough searches they will quickly realize that the most common routes are sometimes cheaper than routes that are not very popular. Most online bus booking services will always give a price indication before the user has to do an actual booking.
