At most times of the day you will find Victoria Coach Station to be very busy and you should allow time for queues. Finding a seat can also be difficult at peak times.

Some tips for your Eurolines London to Paris trip – picked up by previous travellers:– Seats are not assigned, the first people on the bus get the best seats. Although nominally there is a queue, when time comes for boarding you may find a great rush towards the bus, so remain alert and ready to move. Obviously you need your passport and tickets, but you may also be required to give the address to the border police (not always, but its quicker if you have it written down). Take the overnight bus if you want to make the most of your time in Paris and save money on accommodation.
The EuropeBus Video: Well, looking at the above video the first thing I noticed was the empty check in area, never seen it like that. Second thing I noticed is the video shows Galleini as the destination in Paris. From December 2017 it has switched to Gare de Bercy. the video, however, gives you the favour of a day trip to Paris with Eurolines.
From 1st January 2018 you will not be travelling on a bus with Eurolines livery but will travel on a bus carrying the OuiBus logo. OuiBus, National Express, Ailsa in Spain, and Marino Bus in Italy have forged an alliance to take on the large continental coach carriers and will have over 300 destinations. OuiBus is a subsidiary of nthe French Railway company SNCF.
