Go Euro Presents Worldwide Transportation Price Index

GoEuro has presented its Worldwide Transportation Price Index findings. These are based on the train, bus and flight information across five continents. 

GoEuro compared the cheapest bus, train and flight connections between the two most populous cities in each of the countries, among other routes, and analyzed the data in the Price Index. In compiling the results the online platform took into account factors such as distance, scheduling and taxes. Countries were then rated according to average price per 100km for each transportation type.

South Africa came out as the cheapest country for transport overall, where an average bus journey costs $3.67/100km; train journeys cost $1.88/100km; and flights cost just $11.63/100km.

The most expensive country for transport overall is Switzerland, where bus journeys cost $18.67/100km; train journeys $38.28/100km; and flights cost $125.07/100km. 

The US placed 22nd least expensive out of the 52 countries evaluated, with an average bus journey costing $7.92/100km; train journeys $18.61/100km; and flights $10.36/100km.

The cheapest countries for bus travel are Egypt ($1.88/100km), Ukraine ($3.07/100km) and Thailand ($3.11/100km), whilst the most expensive are Netherlands ($28.58/100km), Austria ($23.45/100km) and Norway ($21.61/100km).

The cheapest countries for air travel are India ($10.36/100km), Malaysia ($11.43/100km) and South Africa ($11.63/100km), whilst the most expensive are Finland ($138.90/100km), Switzerland ($125.07/100km) and Lithuania ($116.72/100km).
