Tena Ladies, in case there is no toilet on the coach.

Wear clothes made of natural fibres, cotton preferably and nothing too tight or cumbersome.

Comfortable shoes, again not tight or consider some that slip off easily so that you can travel barefoot between stops.

Jen - Glad toilet on coach, better than the old days, when you were busting for that comfort stop.

Flight socks are apparently not suitable for people with certain medical conditions. Father-in-law has been told NOT to wear them.
We flew to NZ earlier this year and just about everyone travelled barefoot wearing light cotton towelling socks provided by the airline, ...no shape or style, just loose and comfortable.
