(I don't even want to imagine....)

They also go to Rosslare from £19 inc ferry crossing.

Numerous other destinations.

Not to everyone's taste but some bargains to be had.

(Oxford Tube usually costs £14 so some drivers are less than impressed with £1 passengers lol. They have free WiFi & electrical points.)

Do they take bus passes???

Nearest bust stop start is Cardiff for me but that is 100miles away...

Still HOT on price though'

Anyone know if they are any plans for more routes with the megabus as there service and prices are superb.

Hot, although I'd rather pay a bit more for National Express.

Site undergoing maintenance!

Looks like they have services to West Wales now too.

Not really much difference between national express and megabus. Just because they're a cheap brand makes everyone think that they're cheap coaches. And also megabus drops you off at much more convenient places.

Why ????????

yes tell us why, we need to know

hot from me

Been to London on one of these before, paid £4 for two of us, return (plus booking fee) - as opposed to £80+ each on the train.

It's not first class travel, but if you can bear to be on a coach for such a long time its worth the saving - onboard facilities, clean coaches and reclining seats. Can't grumble for £4.

PS: I've been National Express before - it's no different except they seem to travel more places. :P

These are also available for travel in the North Eastern USA for $1 per trip for anybody that doesn't know and happens to be visiting that area .. amazingly cheap way to visit multiple cities!

Been using MegaBus for years to do Manchester-London journey and it's ALWAYS been this price (so long as you get ya booking in early), failing to see what the "deal" is here!?!?

Why ????????


In my area at least, the coaches don't look too comfortable, a few times I've seen buses used instead, and overtaken them while on Nat Ex.

What a stupid reason. You're a perfect example of what is wrong with this country.

I've travelled multiple times with Megabus and National Express down from Edinburgh to London (and the reverse) and I would go with National Express every-time, saying that price is a big incentive to rough it

some of the things which have happened on a Megabus coach so far include the toilet overflowing part way through the journey, chewing gum stuck too seat belt and my jeans, driver refusing to turn heating off or air conditioning on even though it's boiling in the back, bus breakdowns etc.

I have travelled on both Megabus and NX and NX seem to be worse in my opinion. Broken windscreen or broken clutch causing huge delays. Also overflowing toilet. I guess it is a coach, so of course one of these things may happen.

Sorry, can you explain?
Out of interest, if I asked you to recommend an airline, would it be Ryanair?

BTW - I didn't vote this deal cold, as if Megabus are far cheaper than the alternatives, I would travel by them.

I think NX are franchises, hence some areas are better than others. Likewise with Megabus, I'm sure some local depots are better than mine.

mikbak..just looked onsite and you can go from pemdock

well 2 of us have just booked a single journey from sunderland to london in august and it's cost us £9 plus 50p booking fee

cracking value.

Tried to book a return to London from Glasgow for two of us but it comes up as £20.00 so not that cheap.

Furthest West I can see is Cardiff - hardly West Wales or am I missing something?

hot if you can find a journey for 1.50

meganjonez

hot if you can find a journey for 1.50



we found 1 seat from sunderland to london at £1 and the 2nd seat was £8

can't really complain at that price, excellent

They have taken Peterborough off their routes

no such £1 just search london reading tomorrow 19 APR £18 return - misleading !

It works a bit like the low cost airlines, the earlier you book the cheaper it is.
If you book today for travel tomorrow, then it certainly wont be cheap

The price is from £1 folks, do not expect every fare to be a £1!

I too have noticed some routes disappearing, not good at all

Oxford Tube added. They are quite comfy

Ireland, Rosslare seems to be £19 = Wed; £25 = Mon, Tue & Thu; £30 = Fri, Sat & Sun. They say that there are £1 fares but I didn't find any.
