“Fair's Fare!”

Friendly, great range of journeys and HECK - so CH...

Maybe a little uncomfy for less dedicated bargain ...

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...

“An ill-fated journey!!!!”

published 20/12/2004

cheap and cheerful

I 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...

“Prison On Wheels”

published 10/06/2006

cheap fare, eventually gets to destination

uncomfortable, 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...

“Mega mega mega bus”

cheap, good range of destinations

not for those with long legs, only bookable on the...

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...

Very Very Cheap!

Not 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...

Slightly longer journey time than train - no cance...

Well firstly Megabus are a product of Stagecoach, an excellent bus service which runs locally in my area. Megabus is the budget end of the market (which suits me fine being a not-exactly-wealthy student), however this does not by any means in my opinion detract from the service overall. I have...

“A £1? Really?”

Amazing Value! Direct services - few stops. Good w...

A bit slow and uncomfortable - but at that price!

INTRODUCTION I live near Preston and every year i like to go on a weekend break to London. I had booked the hotel for February and was looking for some travel. The train - fast but expensive! National Express - Resonably priced but very slow stopping everywhere. I had tried this option a year...

very cheap inter-city bus service

infrequent, slowish, online only

I recently came across www.megabus.com, which operates bus services on these routes (as at Oct 03) - Glasgow-Edinburgh - Glasgow-Perth-Dundee - Oxford-London - Edinburgh-Perth-Dundee - Edinburgh-St Andrews The web site only relates to these services This appears to be a subsidiary of Stagecoach...

Cheap, Cheap, Cheap

Long Journey, not the most comfortable

I used this service to book tickets for 2 adults and 2 children to go on a day trip to London from Birmingham in half term. The website was clear and gave you all the information you need. Its a fairly basic service of buses between some of the major cities, currently (June 2004): Birmingham...

Cheap as Chips!

Possibility for delays

Having been a Megabus customer for about a year now, regularly using their services between Edinburgh and Glasgow, I was excited to see their new provision of longer distance travel between Scotland and London. Well perhaps excitement is slightly too strong a word but I was defintely intrigued...

“Semi-Mega, to be honest.”

Cheap travel!

Long journeys, limited services, slight discomfort...

Being a non-driver, coaches, buses and trains can seem to rule my life at times. During my 3 years at university i became quite an expert at mastering the various forms of travelling home, as well as the variable cost and duration of the journey. I often found myself choosing between the comfort...

“MEGACHEAP!”

published 02/08/2009

Cheap fares

A poorly designed website

I seem to be obsessed with finding bargains recently and I am amazed at just how many there are to be found out there currently. One of the things that had been recommended to me recently was megabus.com. I have always booked my journeys via the trainline.com, but had been advised that if you...

Not for me

Having Glasgow in sight

Pretty much everything else but the price

Living in the middle of a 'credit crunch' and trying to organise a holiday to Glasgow is where I had my first experience of the catastrophic Megabus. Booking Booking was easy enough and with the excitement of the impending holiday fuelling my (in hindsight, questionable) taste of the cheap, I...

On the 18th december my boyfriend, son and i took a megabus from birmingham to london for 4 days. It cost £26 and to be honest i can't fault it. I spotted the megabus sign when i went on holiday to scotland, i never used the bus but noticed the £1 sign on the sign and looked it up when i got home...

“Megabus, travel on a budget.”

Cheap

Severe Delays.

I have used the megatrain service before and when I needed to get to Bournemouth on the cheap for a weekend I decided to have a look again. Unfortunately there were no train services available so I plumped for a bus down to London Victoria from Sheffield Meadowhall interchange and had to connect...
