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.
