Brazil presents a significant opportunity for online bus ticketing. The bus travel market in Brazil is one of the largest in the world, generating more than $2 billion USD in annual revenue. While 50% of all international travel purchases in Brazil are made online, only 30% of bus tickets are purchased through online channels. This untapped potential fuels Travelier’s vision to capture a dominant market share in this region.

“The bus travel market in Brazil has been going through changes in recent years, influenced by travelers’ new purchasing habits, digitalization and modernization of the sector, and regulatory changes. Internet sales penetration has been growing fast year after year and is expected to exceed 50% of total sales in the next 2 to 3 years. When we started in 2012, the internet sales represented about 3% of sales.” says Breno Moraes, DeÔnibus Co-Founder and CEO.
