Book the fastest and cheapest connection with just one click

For some time past, Google has also been trying to conquer the market for payment services and seems to be successful. Flixbus has now integrated the Google Pay payment service as the first European long-distance bus provider. For travelers, this means that they can buy their tickets even faster thanks to their digital wallet.

With Google Pay, consumers have the ability to make payments in apps and on websites. If you use the app, you can now also select the “Pay with Google Pay” button during the payment process and thus, with just a few clicks, pay for the purchase. The only condition is that one has deposited payment data in the Google Account.

“We are pleased to offer our passengers the best possible travel experience by integrating innovative new features into our app,” said Daniel Krauss, co-founder and CIO FlixMobility. With Google Pay, it’s now possible to book the fastest and cheapest FlixBus connection directly via app. “Thereby we attach great importance to the data security of our users. Thanks to a two-factor authorization, travelers’ identity is reliably confirmed before payment, “says Daniel Krauss.

For several years, FlixBus has been regularly expanding its offer to give passengers different ways to make their trip ideal. For example, it has been possible for some time to obtain all the necessary information about departure times and prices via Google Assistant. It can also pick a suitable connection and book it on voice command.

As a user of Amazon’s voice service Alexa you also have the opportunity to get information about the desired travel route via a special FlixBus skill. In addition, the FlixBusses are integrated into Google Maps, so that passengers can always get all the information about the different routes and can buy tickets via a direct link. By paying via Google Pay this process should become even easier.
