return journey can be on any day, not just tue/wed
On the national express site if you select 'open return' you still pay £10! Just call national express to book return journey with the same ticket number.
- go to link
-pick destination and select outbound journey date on tuesday/wednesday
- select return and then 'open return', click next (dont choose date for return)
-select any ticket (all of them should be £10)
This page will not mention anything about open return but the ticket printout will say so.

-- call national express and give ticket number to book return journey for free

The link is actually o2's priority moments offer with which you should only be able to book a 'one way' ticket to any non airport destination on Mon/Tue. You don't have to be an O2 customer, just book via the deal link.

I used this method to do a return journey from london to middlesbrough last week, went without a hitch.

My guess is they will fix this once they realise it is on this site. Even at going somewhere on a tuesday and return on a Wednesday saves over £70 on a trip from London to Glasgow
Thanks for posting OP.....HOT
They fixed it now ,it seems
The glitch is still there.. You have to pick 'return' first and then 'open return'
Thankyou heaps OP - best deal that we have benefited from to date (Courtesy of hukd) !!!!!!!
Partner has just booked an open return to Cairnryan. He's heading over to Belfast to see the family so he'll just get the ferry as a foot passenger and someone will pick him up the other side. X)
So do you actually have to phone?
is it best to phone them right away?? or just before you want to return??

whenever you know which coach you want to take. I think open return is valid for 3 months.

hmm the open return tab won`t come up now,but it looks like you can still book a return for 10 each journey so 20 all in is great

Why leave it to chance? If you leave returning to the last minute with 3 people then there`s a good chance the seats will be full up as this is summer after all.
I booked all the time last year and made sure to pick the return option and not open return as that depends on availability.I learned that the hard way once as one day i couldn`t get home so i had come home by train which was a lot more expensive.
If you want to be safe book your return journey for tues then buy extra singles for wednesday coming back.
Make sure to login through the o2 link and don`t click the national express logo at the top of the website or you`ll be bumped back to the main website with full prices in effect.
