Thank you for putting this back on,as it's a good offer for Hotukdealers

I would be careful booking a coach abroad. Me & my boyfriend booked through national express and went to Italy, expecting all the luxuries of wifi, plugs etc. from France to Italy we had a bus with no toilet roll, no air con (in middle of summer), no leg room so ended up with swollen legs. And that was just some of the problems we had!

The company stated above might be better but be careful!

Voted hot just because it's not a Tesco deal. :¬}

Tesco are like a bad virus infecting HUKD. Voted hot as not a Tesco wild goose chase

Same here! Thanks for posting though, made a nice change seeing a deal without Tesco in the title, as I like most others never find any of the Tesco deals despite being there 5 days a week!

Thanks will check this out when we get the chance!

We didn't even know about all the discounts,until we went into work and saw the crowds,as management forgot to tell staff.lol as per normal.

I do see deals now and then but stopped posting them as far too much grief from other Hotukdealers.


This is a real bargain, but don't book too far ahead - most of their coaches are almost empty; if this offer fails, they may give up some / all routes.

This is a superb deal
Thank you

I'll drink to that - a change from

rarer than rocking horse ****

Tesco deals that is - heat just for that !! (_;)

I wonder if these coach drivers are as rude to English passengers as megabus drivers are to foreign passengers? If so I'm out!

According to website, there is wifi electrical sockets and fewer seats for extra legroom. So a great deal, I'd say

But do they have the large smiling face on the back of the bus? If not- no deal.

Yeah same here, don't get told about stuff like this anymore and half the time SELs aren't changed when they should so can't even tell a deal when browsing.

Do these guys use the ferry or tunnel and can you get off the coach during the channel crossing to break the journey up a bit?

I'd rather fly with Ryanair. Can fly from Stansted-Dortmund-Krakow-Oslo and return to Stansted all for £83. To hell sittin on a bus for a whole day or 2 just to get somewhere.

You act as if a standard UK coach will have wifi, plugs and decent leg room! The only UK coaches I've used that fill that description would be the Greyhound, but they've stopped them now.

voted HOT, lets get tesco deals off this site!!! none of them actually exist!

Not bad, on Stagecoach it costs me £2.40 to travel two miles up the road.

As would I, but people wanting to go to Lille would probably be a little bit better off by getting a coach to Lille, instead of a Ryanair flight to Germany, Poland and Norway...

Around 6 hours on that distance? On a coach too. Good price and all but that is a long time for such a small trip across the channel.

I've been to three Tescos and I couldn't find this deal. Could you post a receipt as proof OP??

and other destinations in France & Italy



Many flights to many parts of France and Italy for next to nothin. The example I gave is what I have planned for next month.

Thanks OP - This is handy to know!

I have already booked myself on an antique shopping coach trip to the special Lille flea market on 7th September , it cost me £32 return from Folkstone & I still have to get to / from London to Folkstone!

It did not show prices for that far in advance but worth knowing as if I decided to do the shopping trip again from London it must surely work out cheaper for me?

The coach trip I booked does look nice & comfy though & has AC , refreshments & DVD player & I presume it drops us as close as possible to the market itself & comes with a tour guide? Nicer way of doing this trip for me first time!

If I was young enough without my many obligations I would jump at seeing the world so cheaply....local Euro travel seems so cheap now...long haul is more expensive though

Meanwhile in Africa...

Thank you OP, for putting this on here and like you say, its something different from those tedious Tesco wild goose chases that so many people vote as red hot, like muppets! This is what a REAL HOT UK deal should be like, i.e. available to LOTS of people all over the country, not to about 3 people in the vacinity of one particular Tesco store!
Voted Hot.

Looks like you could really get lost in Lille...haha!

Anyone found any good cheap hotels in Lille?

it's tunnel mostly, unless there's some sort of problem/delays etc. with the tunnel in which case it'd be ferry. you can get off the coach yes, there's usually at least one service station break at some point along the way too

Saw two mega buses today and they were advertising London to Paris for 1€
