I am currently in a Flixbus bus, but before boarding on the bus I didn't check-in my ticket. The bus arrived a bit late, so everyone was boarding freely without showing the ticket to the driver (conductor) and so did I as a victim of sheep psychology.

Can there be any negative consequences of not checking-in your Flixbus ticket? Like my seat being sold to someone else on the other stops on my way or my return ticket being withdrawn?

Note that I am traveling together with my friend, and my trip is between 2 Schengen countries.


I travel regularly with Flixbus, and there'll be no issues. A lot of the time I don't even buy a ticket for the whole journey I'm actually making, and I got nervous once, when it got sold out on the section I hadn't paid for, that they might check everyone's tickets and throw me off. Somehow, however, it was sorted out without any issues.

Obviously, since you (presumably) have a valid ticket for the whole trip, there are no grounds whatsoever for any problems.

You don't get a specific seat either. So really, you're fine.

  • I confirm this answer, as I had no issues during my onward journey and my return ticket was also valid. – gdrt Aug 7 '17 at 17:15
