Inter-city bus service Megabus, have recently announced a seat sale where customers can bag a ticket for just £1.00 + a £0.50p booking fee. If you haven’t heard of mega bus before they are one of the leading cheap bus operators in the UK, part of the global bus superpower Stage Coach.
The coach service is not the comfiest way to get to your destination, you could call it a no thrills bus service, but when the prices are the cheapest around you can’t really complain. What’s also welcoming is the generous baggage allowance which let’s you bring a maximum of 20kg of luggage which is securely stored under the bus in a large spacious compartment.
You’ll be surprised at the vast selection of routes and stops available on the megabus UK network, hundreds of top locations operating across the North, South, West and East of the country.
If you are a student with a valid NUS extra card you can also receive an extra 10% discount on your ticket price, but the initial NUS Extra card will set you back £12.00, if you have a student bank account please check with them as sometimes they will give you a free NUS card as a benefit.
How to book £1 tickets?
Take a look at the following page on their website to see the £1 tickets which are available for purchase.
£1.00 tickets can be found by navigating to the megabus.com website and entering your travel requirements, please note the sale does not seem to have been publicly announced by mega bus so it’s a first come first serve. £1 tickets can’t always be found for every single route, it seems to be a first come first serve basis. So if you have a trip planned some months in advance it makes sense to search for the cheaper tickets early rather than last minute as they may be booked.
