Megabus - Travel Anywhere in England or Wales on a Wednesday for a maximum of £5 (+50p booking fee)

Found 29th Apr 2013
Pay no more than a fiver (plus 50p/50c booking fee) for Wednesday travel all across English and Welsh bus routes.

To get a the return for a max £5 just book your journey for a Wednesday!

Some dates there are select fares from just a £1, i have booked one myself in August for Newcastle to London for £1.50!

Yes, you're choosing a journey that is partially by train. This is only for bus journeys (though the OP could be clearer in that regard!).

Probably because they only accept pounds sterling.

Time to be independent!

Well if it included scotland, they'd invade england. obviously clever thinking by megabus here.

This is the standard deal, just to let people know. Should be in the title

Unless its a long trip, its worth double checking the cost of other days as sometimes its cheaper than the Wednesday. Bristol to Cardiff for example, is normally £3.50 every day except Wednesday, when it goes up to £5.

This won't be on every route but its worth checking as Wednesday isn't always automatically the cheapest day.

Still good for the longer trips tho.

Interesting idea considering Megabus is owned by Stagecoach which is a Scottish company started and still managed by Brian Souter. Souter is a notable donor to the Scottish National Party and a big supporter of independence.

Weird logic from a Scottish company. I imagine it's got something to do with their alliance within Scotland with Citylink. A relationship that means that really cheap fares are increasingly hard to come by. I miss the days of £1 singles from Edinburgh to Glasgow.

Ahh those good old days eh, well and truely gone. I remember when thetrainline.com first started and Virgin were still hated and I could get Glasgow to Liverpool Lime Street return for £15. In saying this I could get off and walk from Wigan quicker.

Heat added btw, still no bad deal.

looking on megabus the other day and managed to get a ticket bristol to leeds to see family 50p booking fare only could not believe my luck ok it leaves a bit early in the morning but what luck

It's only weird logic if you are one of those people who believe companies are vaguely interested in nationalist pandering.

Obviously the only reason why they are excluding Scotland is for business reasons. Whether that's because of Citylink (pretty likely considering it also excludes some (all?) routes in England by partners) or because it doesn't want to offer £5 capped fares on long routes like Glasgow to London we'll just have to guess.

Hopefully some are benefiting from even cheaper fares if you can find them!

Yeah, "weird logic" probably wasn't quite what I should have said. I meant it was noteworthy. Especially considering what a hoopla Souter makes about Stagecoach being a Scottish company and the fact he personally offers so much financial support to the SNP and various Scottish charitable causes.

Its £5 per journey, not £5 for return...or is that offer ended now?
