Fair's Fare! Diamond review

AdvantagesFriendly, great range of journeys and HECK - so CHEAP!!

DisadvantagesMaybe a little uncomfy for less dedicated bargain hunters. Must be booked online.

"Having spent my three years of university at the quintessential Place In The Middle Of Nowhere (the locals call it Aberystwyth) and all my holidays back at home separated from my friends by the whole Irish sea, I'm happy to have finally settled (for the time being, at least) in the South east of England. At least I'm on the same landmass as everyone else now. At least there's an airport half an hour away, and decent rail links to everywhere I could ..." Read review

Prison On Wheels

Advantagescheap fare, eventually gets to destination

Disadvantagesuncomfortable, usually late

"So, I am always looking for ways to save money. My sister lives down in Manchester and I usually take the car when I visit but the money it was costing in petrol was just getting too ridiculous. I decided to start looking for alternative means of transport so I looked up train fares which were ok but still not the cheapest and flights were a lot so then I thought about coaches. I had passed the megabus while driving up before and heard many people ..." Read review

Mega mega mega bus

Advantagescheap, good range of destinations

Disadvantagesnot for those with long legs, only bookable on the internet

"I like weekends away visiting my friends. It really cheers me up. The only problem is I do not drive (I am not allowed to as I am partially sighted) and have to rely on public transport. I have tried National Express coaches and trains and have had very mixed results. One thing I do find that unless you book about three months in advance (especially with the trains) traveling within Britain via public transport can be quite expensive. On my last ..." Read review

An ill-fated journey!!!!

Advantagescheap and cheerful

DisadvantagesI definitely think they are haunted

"Megabus is a fantastic bus service. I was £4 return to go to Glasgow and back for a day trip shopping. Its simple to book, although you do have to book online. My friend came along with us on the day of the trip but didnt have a ticket and they let him on by just paying the bus driver on site at no extra cost. This was completely unexpected. With the cheap deals I expected the bus to be overcrowded but it wasnt. Even though there is not much leg ..." Read review

The Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Round!

AdvantagesVery Very Cheap!

DisadvantagesNot The Most Comfortable Thing

"If you are thinking about travelling there seems to be some pretty good deals around, well at least if you believe the posters anyway. According to the posters London to Sheffield return by Midland Mainline train will cost you just £10, but wait before you all get yourselves too excited I suggest that you get out your magnifying glasses and read the tiny terms and conditions at the bottom (not easy I know when the poster is ten feet above the ..."
