How to get from A to B?

When it comes to travel, we never get around the question how to get to our destination, or from one spot to another in case of a round trip. For most international trips it is pretty easy, since the plane is mostly the most efficient way to travel, especially over long distance. However, there are more congested areas in the world, like Europe, where I live. Soon you find that there are a handful of options to travel by. But how to choose from all of those?

During the planing of my trip through Denmark and Sweden I stumbled over the webpage called Omio. Omio is a travel booking page where you can simply look for the easiest way to get from A to B. And even compare if it suits you more to go by bus, train or plane. I some cases you can even choose ferries.

Did I make you curios? read through the next paragraphs on how to set up your account. I will also tell you how to safe 10€ on your next trip, so make sure you read through to the very end.

Ready? Let me show you how it's done

Click here to directly get to omio. feel unsure to click on a random link? Scroll down to the bottom to findcopy and paste links. The page has a nice landing page, not bombing you with a lot of information. To start setting up an account, just click on create an account in the top right corner.

For signing up you have three different options; you can either do it through Facebook, Google or a regular E-Mail. You then need to choose a password, your user name and your date of birth. Before you run through any issues during your booking I highly recommend doing the next things before you move on to booking.

You will be asked to add a phone number. This is a good idea, since they can easily get in touch with if there are any changes in your future bookings. As a payment method you can add your PayPal and a variety of Credit cards.

Got your account set up? Let's move on to our first booking!

Back on the main page we can start with our first booking. All you need to do is insert your starting and ending point and your arrival and departure dates. Above that you can choose whether this is a round trip or just one way. Here you select the number of people travelling, their age and, if applicable, any discount or rewards cards for various airlines ad train companies. Then hit search and wait for the results. For my example I will just show you how to book a rund trip to Copenhagen from Hamburg for the weekend.

Omio then directs you to the shown page. You will have to choose your outbound trip first. On top you can choose if you want to tarvel by train, bus or plane. Of course you can alsways switch, to look which suits you best. Omio will also show you the lowest price and travel time for each kind of transport. Below you now have options to select how to sort all booing offers as well as add some filters. These filters include number of changes, departure/arrival times, total cost and more.

The travel options are now pretty self-explaining. You see departe and arrival time, duration, price and number of changes. Clicking on the changes button will also present more details. Once you find the trip that suits you best you just click on it. You will then have to choose on your return trip.
