Where does Omio’s Services Work

Testing with Europe – European Travel Planning Omio Review

Tested Omio first by checking transportation from Madrid to Barcelona. In the images below, you can see that it’s easy to get a lot of options for transportation – trains, buses, and even flights. There were a lot of good options available – cheap ones and also fast ones which definitely helps a lot with planning your travel.

If you’re looking at the budget options, then you can easily find the best options for you to use. If you’re looking for the fastest way to reach your destination, then you can choose that too.

If you’re booking in advance, you can even find very good deals which you can book directly from Omio. 

Look at an example below, booking from Madrid to Salamanca, several weeks ahead. Crazy deals at rides from €13.

Italy

Looking at options for going from Milan to Sicily, here are the transportation options that we see. Flights included. Let’s try to compare these prices

Checked Ryan Air for the same flight and it was €44.51 vs €47 here in Omio. For a few Euros for fees, it’s definitely worth it for you to use Omio so you can book your flights and other transportation efficiently and in one place.

Features We are Loving with Omio

1. Mobile Tickets

You’ll surely love having access to all your transport tickets in one place – buses, trains, and flights. Details as important as this can get lost in the juggle of travel planning and the Omio Travel App makes sure it keeps everything on hand for you by making mobile tickets available through the Omio app.

2. Choose from Different Local Transportation

It’s always good to know that you don’t have to always rely on flights when traveling. It lessens your carbon footprint and it’s also more economical in a lot of ways. Depending on where you’ll be traveling, you can have options for trains and buses and even carpool with Omio! That’s very efficient and environmentally friendly at the same time. For flights, you can also get options at a small fee and search for various companies to see what available flights you can get at prices you can afford. 

3. Environmental Ways of Traveling

As mentioned above, you’ll have traditional options but also get carpooling options, especially in cities. Any small help we can do for the environment is good! Having the ability to access mobile tickets in place of printed tickets is also very helpful as well. 

Pros with the Omio Travel Planning App

Right now, we see so many pros with Omio. Any tool that helps our trip become more efficient and fun is a pro to us. We like to do different kinds of travel and we always look for various options for transportation – local if possible and we find that Omio helps a lot, especially for transportation in Europe and North America. 

Cons with the Omio Travel Planning App

We tested Omio in the Philippines and a lot of the transportation is not covered yet, so for now the only con we see with Omio is for countries they don’t cover yet. It is great to know through Omio already has a huge coverage – it’s already operating in 36 countries (and expanding as we write this). Omio is also available in 18 languages and 26 currencies so we can forgive the areas it doesn’t cover yet and can’t wait for every country to be supported.

Omio is now part of our travel planning arsenal. Make sure to try it for yourself too! Let us know if you have any questions and if you’ll be using Omio as well too.
