megabus Discounts, Deals and Promo Codes

megabus Discounts, Deals and Promo Codes

The Scottish coach company megabus is famous for its £1-tickets, which are generally available on every connection. If you want to get one of these inexpensive tickets you simply need to book a few weeks in advance, usually about 60 days.

The inexpensive tickets are the reason why megabus doesn’t really offer any other discount schemes, such as student or group discounts. However, there are still some ways to save a few extra pounds when travelling. For instance, a toddler under the age of 3 travels for free. Keep in mind, though, that there is no seat guaranteed. Free travel within Scotland is also available for Scottish Entitlement Card holders, i. e. travellers with a disability or over the age of 60.

Instead of offering fixed discounts, however, megabus frequently gives out promo codes or launches other campaigns that include attractive deals. Sometimes they even hand out thousands of tickets for free, usually for trips in January. To keep up to date with any current offers, you should check all megabus Deals before booking.

megabus History

megabus History

megabus is part of the Stagecoach Group, the second largest transport company in the UK. The intercity bus subsidiary megabus was launched in August 2003 and originally only operated one bus route, which went from London to Oxford. In the following years, megabus steadily expanded its network by adding more and more connections linking basically of Britain’s major cities. In May 2011, the company’s first and only stop in the Republic of Ireland was added to the schedules, namely Rosslare Europort.

In April 2012, megabus started its first connections between the UK and continental Europe. It originally linked Birmingham and London to Paris as well as Leicester and London to Brussels and Amsterdam. This step took place when the European coach market was in a state of flux: strict regulations were in place which were meant to protect state funded railway companies and thus prohibited intercity coach connections. However, these regulations started to crumble and in 2013 Germany officially opened its market to intercity buses with France following two years later. This meant that there were new and affordable ways to travel large parts of Europe.

The coach company megabus tried to gain a foothold in the newly established and fast growing market and launched ever more connections in France, Germany and Italy. However, it turned out that the competition was too strong and the struggle for market leadership too heated. In July 2016, megabus announced that its operations in continental Europe had been sold to the German market leader FlixBus.

Nevertheless, the coach company remains one of the main players in the British Isles with over five million passengers per year. Its core competence – namely the operation of low-cost intercity bus lines – was supplemented by additional services such as the sleeper coach between London and Glasgow, Luxury Megabus Gold services between London and Edinburgh/Aberdeen or the railway subsidiary megatrain.

Dear Katherine,

Thank you for your message. On the megabus website, you can only book a bus a couple months in advance for many routes and connections. Once the date of your destination gets closer, you should be able to book your ticket. Alternatively, you can book the bus trip via National Express, which also offers the same connection, to book for that date. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.

I had a problem with Megabus on Friday 29/12/17, I was told to take a train to Cardiff when I had already booked my ticket for the megabus from Birmingham to Cardiff for the 20:10hrs bus. I was waiting for this bus and called your service three times, 11mins past 8, 16 mins past 8, and finally at 8:42pm to be told that the megabus had left the point at Brunel street at 20:20hrs, I was there waiting and did not see this bus, the only two buses that was there was the bus going to Liverpool and the bus going to Nottingham. the driver from the Nottingham bus asked me where I was going and I advised him it was Cardiff. When I called back after waiting for the bus which should have been marked Carmarthen, did not arrive, I called again only to be told to make my own way to Cardiff. I advised the operator that I had to be in Cardiff as my Mother had passed away. The operator advised me to make my way to Cardiff and that Megabus would reimburse me. I had to borrow the money as I had just paid out £32:60 for my ticket with Megabus and had to pay another £57:60. I have used Megabus a lot last year and have not had the problem that I had on 29/12/17. I would be grateful if my money for both the megabus and train fare can be reimbursed as soon as possible, as I was stranded that night , left in tears, cold and worried for my safety. I have picked up a chest infection since then and have to attend my GP on Monday 8/1/18, and I will have to attend the hospital as I am asthmatic and having to stand out in the cold for so long on 29th December has severely damaged my health. I am grateful for your assistance and look forward to hearing from you. I have the train ticket and receipt from the 29th December 2017, also the email schedule for megabus. Thank you.
