Citylink Gold - deluxe bus travel Aberdeen to Glasgow, some seats £5

26
Found 18th May 2012
Citylink Gold is deluxe travel between Aberdeen/Inverness and Glasgow. This normal fare is £20 however on the megabus.com site some seats are showing as £5. The cheap seats are early departures leaving at around 7.05 from Glasgow or Aberdeen. Also there seems to be a system glitch as it was not showing a cheap seat for Monday 21st yet there was a £5 seat for the 22nd. I then went back a page to 21st and the 5 seat appears so no idea if this is a glitch or just an attempt to sell off seats when the bus is half empty. Note that these fares are only on megabus.com. The citylink gold site will only let you book the standard £20 cheap fare.

I took a £5 journey today. Had pancakes and jam and tea in the first hour then Scottish tablet and irn bru in the second hour. All FREE. Seats are lovely and there is free wi-fi. Journey time is slightly faster than normal megabus.

Haven't tried searching further than a few weeks ahead but the £5 seats are there. Just booked another just now.

Voting hot as you had such a wonderful journey. Tablet and Irn Bru, yum yum.

haggis stovies irn-bru tablet being aloud to air yourself in a kilt/ Iskirt for anybody who doesn't know . I love being Scottish .:)

Deluxe means you get a seat and super deluxe gets you a seat belt

Voted hot, As long as it stays Aberdeen to Glasgow and not either place to England

I've long held the belief that one of the best things come out of Glasgow was a citylink bus!

Well, shock horror. You don't miss a shot to have a go at the English. You do realise this can be classed as racism. I've reported your pathetic comment.

I get this for free as I have a concessions pass due to epilepsy. Just don't have any reason to go to Aberdeen D: its tempting to go just for the free food though

You apply to the local council. Depending on the severity you can get one - I believe you automatically do, at least here in Scotland, if you are not allowed to drive.

Thats good that - I never knew I could use the concession on the gold ones - do I still have to book in advance and claim back or do I just turn up?

Grow up and get over yourself ya wee knob....

Is it me or do people get too offended these days about pretty much anything. There was a time that different nationalities constantly ripped the **** out of each other and played on stereo types now you can't say anything to anyone without being called a racist. The line that you have to cross needs to move back to where it used to be - get a grip Sphere and just imagine she is from Glasgow and typing that comment having no teeth. 'lol'

Brilliant! lol

"Deluxe" is the one with windows.

And Adibear, I'll take your comment in the spirit intended. £5 would be a bargain from England to Scotland. And £500 would be a bargain to get back home

Look at it another way, it keeps the Scots in Scotland, so everyone wins

Which was Adiebear's point in the first place. Quite obviously. Trust the English to even assume an anti-Scots jibe is anti-English X)

Sphere, I am English

On my second £5 journey. Had a scone with jam, tea, Scottish shortbread and diet irn bru. Lovely. The route is rather nice, taking you past the Perthshire hills.

What dates did you find them?
