National Express 40% Off Travel (Better than Young Persons Card) w/ NUS

Found 26th JunEdited by:"DealsIUsed"
Hey Guys;

Just looking at methods on how to go and see my mate in just under a week and my phone told me NUS card holders can get up to 40% off a full priced fare if booked at least 3 days in advance.

For me, this works out SLIGHTLY cheaper than getting a train using my 16-25 Railcard and cuts the travel time in half when getting a coach.

They do indeed have toilets.

EDIT:
And from all the coaches I have been on, they are air conditioned too. =)
Also, on the VERY odd occasion, they give you free travel tickets too. I remember last year as a birthday present, they gave me a free travel ticket (including open return if I wished, but I had been using them for about 3-4 years at that point).

These coaches are hell. They can go all over before you arrive. I remember been on a coach for 9 hours from Manchester to Butlins Skegness..

Did you check the number of stops before you got to your destination when booking?
From Heathrow to Bristol (What used to be my typical route), it took 2 hours (maybe every so often there was a 5 minute stop in Reading).

Thank you
It is cheaper than the train for me £25 for coach with a journey time of 10hrs 30m with two changes as apposed to 6 hrs and one change on train costing £50, I think I would still choose the train in my case. Hot if the journey is short.
probably a silly question but would this work buying the ticket from trainline.com?

Sorry for the late response.

I don't believe NUS cards discount trains, the closest thing they can do for that is buy a 16-25 Railcard (1 year, not 3) for a SLIGHTLY discounted rate of 12% (knocks £3.60 off total price).

EDIT:
After looking, there are a FEW services which offer discounts like Crosscountry and TransPennine Express but that's all I managed to find.

Haha, I didnt mean discount the trains that would be odd... trainline.com as far as I know sells coach tickets too. So was wondering if I could use in conjuction with the lower prices (i assume) found on trainline.com

As far as I'm aware, after looking on the trainline website, I can't see an option for an NUS discount. So, I don't think so. =(
