Poor customer service, delays, often packed buses.

For long journeys, I have up until recently been a loyal customer to National Express, finding their prices unbeatable compared to the train and other coach companies. However their prices have slowly but surely been rising and especially closing into summer. Those under £10 deals I used to snap...

“Shorty needs a road trip.”

published 07/09/2011

Cheap, reliable

Strictly for short passengers.

Megabus first came to my attention about a year ago whilst looking for cheap ways to travel to Bristol from Manchester to see family. I'm no longer driving and with petrol prices costing return trips to cost up to a £100, getting my partner to drive me there was pretty prohibitive. National...

“Mega Save on Megabus”

published 12/10/2009

Quick and Easy

tiny toilets

I dislike train travel, finding it claustrophobic and expensive, so the coach is thje obvious alternative. Coach or bus travel is a territory more or less divided between National Express and Megabus, when it comes to booking online. Megabus is better for the following reasons. Megabus use double...

“To mega? Or not to mega”

published 17/09/2008

cheap

bum numbing, no space....

Where Megabus.com services leave from and arrive at many locations within towns and cities in the uk. When booking all you hav to do is make your reservation to and from your chosen town or city and when travelling you choose which stop to board or leave the bus, the fares are the same regardless...

Price

Seats are uncomfortable, especially for long haul.

I have used megabus a number of times over the past 5 years but most recently in october of 2008 although the service has been fairly consistent so I would imagine it is similar now. Most often I have travelled from Edinburgh/Glasgow to London and vice versa but have also gone on shorter trips...

really cheep

dont go all over europe

First let me tell you how I found out about this company. It was just after Christmas and I had to attend my sisters' wedding which was in Scotland, this was a long way for me, but I left it to late to book a plane ticket and the prices were too high, getting a coach never even crossed my mind...

****megabus**** **Routes** The megabus offers a wide range of routes long and short. **The buses** Megabuses are blue and yellow and in my opinion the seats are all crammed in. Sometimes when you book with them you get city link buses which are much better/have more space. **Service** Most of the...

Megabus.com is a very straightforward online bus service site that allows you to book journeys in between the larger cities and towns of the UK at prices many times cheaper than it would cost you to travel by either national express or national rail. For example, you can pick up a single ticket...

Route coverage limited, Less frequency

When I found that I could go from Worthing to London for £1.5, I thought there must be some catch. I gave it a try and found the service fantastic! Megabus and National express are the two major bus operators in the UK. Although megabus is cheaper, their route is very limited and has less...

“Megabus”

Cheapness; friendliness of staff; good transport; ...

Can't too book far ahead; variance of buses (older...

I used the megabus to go to a family wedding in Portsmouth (I live near Newcastle). By train this journey would have been too expensive to contemplate but by megabus it was just under £15 which I couldn't believe!!! I had to get the coach from Newcastle to London and then change to another coach...

“Not quite so "Mega" Bus!”

published 20/12/2006

Cheap, more destinations every month

No heating/cooling system, often long complicated ...

When the Megabus first arrived on the scene in Edinburgh (where I lived at the time), it initially provided a low cost and effective alternative to Stagecoach and Citylink . With journeys available for just £1 (+ 50p booking fee) between Edinburgh/Glasgow and Edinburgh/Perth, I was able to save...

The Megabus and Megatrain share the same website and I was able to book a round trip from Portsmouth to London for £2.50 return.

“cheap - but very frustrating”

published 25/03/2010

cheap

hassle, delays

As with Ryanair, one wouldn't expect comfort but at least basic safety checks should be carried out. That does not seem to be always the case; trip from Cardiff to London yesterday was delayed through two breakdowns: first one because a driver of another vehicle stopped the bus in Cardiff to tell...

Low Cost

Hostile, Dangerous Drivers. Over 1 1/2 hours late.

I travelled with Megabus Cardiff to London in August 2012. A double decker bus load of passengers were left waiting outside our bus in the pouring rain for over one hour after the departure time. The bus driver only let us on the bus when somebody knocked on the window. I can only imagine what he...

I am travelling with them on a regular basis between Leeds and London. I have no loyalty towards the brand so my decision on booking a ticket with them is based exclusively on the price. They compete very close with National Express on fares, and in 90% of the cases, Megabus are the cheaper...
