Wow, the prices are ridiculous! look at this...


  • Departs 05:30 London, Waterloo
    Arrives 08:44 Weymouth, Train Station
  • 3hrs 14mins
  • 2 seats = £2.00

The trouble is, I can't get to London for 5:30 in the morning, and the cheapest return journey gets me back to London for 7:50pm - where I'd still have to get a train to the closest town to me, then a bus home after 9pm, which isn't going to happen, not round here

An awesome deal if you live somewhere they pick up from though. Well done.

surely it must be a mistake? If not, what a bargain if you live on one of their routes.

Just be aware you get what you pay for with Megabus, on Friday I travelled from London to Huddersfield & arrived 3 hours late, having been sworn at by the bus driver & made to turn the reading light off because it was distracting him! BUT...had it worked out it would have been a great bargain!

the prices are genuine, they do some train journeys too (can get a return from Nottingham to London for a tenner return often if you time it right)
My targets for the future:
1) To get down to 11 stone or no Oz trip! At start 17 stone 7 lbs 25lb lost : 66lbs to go
2) to be mortgage free by 30 = 40.1% paid. 59.9% to go

If you smile, the whole world will smile with you and you may make someones day!

Thanks OP

Just managed to book 4 tickets for 50p - thats 50p the lot not each

A hint for those booking - it seems to be bookings on Mon- Thurs that are coming up as £0.00 - Fri - Sun seem to be usual price.

I am also in the "get what you pay for camp"

i had the misfortune of using this lot a couple of months ago when i had no other choice

The only seats available were the ones at the back around the broken toilet. It wouldnt flush and the door wouldnt stay shut. Dont think any cleaner/bleach/disinfectant had ever, ever been near it. We went more or less the whole journey with tissue up our nose and breathing into our jumpers so that we didnt have to put up with it any more than we had to.
I thought this site was supposed to SAVE me money...?!

Journey has to start and finish in England/Wales - no Scottish seats available. Bit rubbish as this is a Scottish based company!

Bro in law travelled on one of these from Glasgow to Birmingham...... during the journey the bus started to sway and was swerving from side to side.
One of the occupants asked the driver to stop as she felt it was unsafe - the driver refused and kept driving. Eventually she called the police to get him to stop. They pulled up on the hard shoulder and another 'magic bus' eventually came along but told the occupants it was London only destination. The only choice my bil had was to get back on the swaying bus alone and continue to Bimingham!!!

Just a word of warning -cheap but comes at a price
