Frequently Asked Questions

Things you need to know when using Bus237 services for your daily travel planner.

Can I get a refund?

Please check your booking very carefully before completing your transaction, as we don’t give any refunds for bookings after you’ve paid for them. Bookings may be refunded based on certain conditions and are at the discretion of Bus237.com You can make changes to your booking by paying an amendment fee anytime at least 24 hours before you’re due to travel. We do not allow amendments less than 24 hours before departure. Changes can be made online or with an authorised Bus237 agent. The amendment fee at an authorised Bus237 agent may be different to the amendment fee charged online. If your new journey is more expensive than the original one, you’ll also need to pay the difference between the two fares. Unfortunately, we cannot give you a refund or credit if the new journey is less expensive than the original one.

I missed my departure what should I do?

Just like seats on a plane, all seats booked via Bus237 are sold on a reservation basis - so you must travel at your specified time and date. For journeys within Cameroon, customers need to be at their departure point at least 30 minutes before their journey is due to depart. No refunds or credits will be given if you miss the coach. But if your plans change more than 24 hours before you’re due to travel – you can amend your ticket with us online or by calling our services. Fees will apply for making these changes. If you missed your departure and you still wish to travel, you’ll need to book another journey. So you can either book again on our website or app, or by calling our sales line at +237 (Number to be updated). This service is operated by our partners. Calls cost charges per minute network access and call charges may apply. Please check with your telecom provider. At some locations, (Doaula Coach Station for example), you may be able to pay for a walk-up fare on the day of travel from a member of the Bus Agency staff – or use the self-service kiosk.

So please remember to include the new journey details for all travellers when making your changes, even those that still want to travel on the same journey as originally booked.

What does your ticket cost?

All our fares are updated directly from the bus agencies currently running on our platform. Fares will vary according to the bus agency booking date, day of travel and demand for seats - and they’re subject to change without notice. A booking fee is charged per credit or debit card transaction to cover administration charges. During peak booking times, prices may go up or down between searches - so bear that in mind when you're planning your trip. For any other information about fares we recommend you contact the bus agency directly.

Why can't I find tickets for my trip?

This may happen for a couple of reasons. If the journey can be selected from the departure/origin points but there are no available dates - it might be that the journey has sold out. If the departure/origin points don’t appear, it may be that we don’t currently offer a service on the route you’re looking for. We’re always looking at adding new places to our network though, so make sure you check back to see if any new places have been added to the Bus237 journey planner.
