They do up a double decker London Bus, drive it around Europe as a hotel and if they make it they will own and be in charge of a whole fleet. While on the road in France they pick up 3 ladies whose car breaks down and offer to take them to their next singing job in Athens. They also pick up a stowaway. A young, American boy. Meanwhile, a young American female singer has gone missing. Her mother (who is a VERY ambitious woman) and her aid take the story to the press and it makes the front page. They do all they can to make the story run for as long as possible, including misdirecting the bus up an extremely steep Yugoslavian hill.

The film-musical of Cliff Richard and The Shadows is a selection of brassy dance sets and a couple of The Shadows songs with a basic story where bus mechanics take a bus to France, pick up some girls going to Athens, and an American "boy" stows away to ensure a US cinema release.
Along the way they stop in a very Greek looking Yugoslavia and meet some Kossacks (in Yugoslavia ?) who must have come across the Black Sea and got lost or kidnapped by Tito.
