Santiago to Temuco

I'm planning a trip for 10 Duke students in October 2013. We were thinking of taking a night bus from Santiago to Temuco. Can you recommend a company? Alternatively, if the train is working, we could do that.

Thanks for your help!

You will not be able to get a train to Temuco. There are several bus lines which do the route: Turbus, Pullman, Cruz del Sur. etc. There isn't that much difference between them, although Turbusand Pullman have offices around the city where you can buy tickets without going to the bus station. You will not be able to purchase the tickets online with a foreign credit card and will have to buy them when you arrive in Chile. The 31st of Oct and the first of Nov are holidays which will create a long weekend. Aside from that weekend you should be able to buy them a day or two beforehand. For a trip that length you want either Salon Cama or Premium (seat goes flat). I usually find Salon Cama is fine.
