Andorra is a small, mountainous country in Western Europe.  Tourism, the mainstay of Andorra’s tiny economy, accounts for roughly 80% of GDP.  An estimated 9 million tourists visit annually, attracted by Andorra’s duty-free status and summer and winter resorts.

Public transportation

Bus services are mostly run by private companies, but some local ones are operated by the government.  The buses are going everywhere in the city.  The local bus service called Cooperativa Interurbana Andorrana, S.A.

There are 8 main bus lines or ‘línies’, and all of these pass through the capital Andorra La Vella. The fare is between €1.85 to €6.10 one-way depending on how far you are going. Drivers need to handle change.

Get a pass for different activities

Andorra’s huge ski resorts with their family-friendly slopes are probably the main reason for Andorra’s popularity among tourists.  The resorts have all joined together so that your ski pass covers neighboring areas.  Other activities such as hiking and trekking.

Cashless payment beneficial

People come often not the first time to enjoy the activities.  If there is a ski pass, why not there is a bus pass as well instead of paying cash each time to get on.  It should attract the tourist to use if they come often as it can eliminate the handling of bus fee from drivers.

Business opportunity

Small countries like Andorra have dread the thought of implementing AFC when they see the expensive price tags from their neighbours.  However, with AFC system, it can collect a good cash flow from the 9 million tourists every year.
