Swebus and the Swedish Tourist Association join forces

Express bus company Swebus is launching a joint initiative with the Swedish Tourist Association (STF). The move will make it easier for tourists visiting Sweden to find travel and accommodation for their holiday and provide discounts on trips throughout the Swebus network for STF members.

“Working together will enable us to clearly link journeys with interesting destinations with comfortable accommodation,” says Swebus press officer Ingvar Ryggesjö. “We hope that more of our faithful passengers will discover STF, and that STF members will take the opportunity to find out how comfortable travelling with us can be.”

STF operates Sweden-wide and is a non-profit organisation to promote tourism in Sweden with about 300,000 members. It covers nearly 400 hostels, hotels, mountain stations and mountain cabins.

“We want it to be easy to discover Sweden and to book a journey at the same time as booking accommodation. Working with Swebus will give our members a cost-efficient travel alternative,” says Sylvia Nylin, communications and sales manager at STF.

Swebus and STF’s joint initiative comprises:

- a 10% discount for STF members on journeys on Swebus’ network of routes.

- Visibility for Swebus routes on STF’s website and visibility for STF accommodation on Swebus’ website.

- STF’s hostels will sell tickets for Swebus flight transfers to Arlanda.
