Thaebus Prices (Low Season)

Obviously it is best to check it on the internet and convert Chilean pesos to dollars (1 dollar is usually changed between $650 and $800 Chilean pesos). In high season (January, February, long holidays, July holidays, Fiestas Patrias) prices can go up between 50% and 100%.

Interesting Thaebus tips as a tourist and transport fan

  • The company is one of the few that serves the route Puerto Varas – Ensenada – Saltos de Petrohué – Petrohué as a rural route. If you come in the area, I highly recommend that you make this rural route.
  • Buses feature an app called ThaebusPlay to watch entertainment on your device, this for long-distance travel.
