“DON'T RECCOMENED SUITCASE STOLE”

Written on: 12/10/2012 by Xfernnx (1 review written)

I was on the megabus last night coming home from Glasgow, Scotland. The bus stopped at Perth, and I think this was where my case got took. I didn't want to put my case below as I have fears it going missing and this was the result but a member of staff said I had to and this was the result! I am so angry and frustrated cause I had a lot of goods in there plus my shopping I had bought in Glasgow that day. I don't think this is fair atall, luggage should more secured and not give out to any… Read Full Review

“Cheap for a Reason”

Written on: 26/09/2012

I recently used the Megabus service to travel from Edinburgh to London, and back again. Outgoing: The bus did not turn up, but luckily another service was leaving at the same time. I don't know if this was an earlier service running late, or if there were multiple services. This service was not direct, so they advised people whose final destination was London to disembark in Newcastle, where the original bus would meet them (along with passengers going from Newcastle to London). When we got… Read Full Review

“AVOID!”

Written on: 13/09/2012 by Ascrappy (1 review written)

Avoid at all costs I was going to Lecister from London to a very good friends wedding with my partner however we didn't make it. We got to the bus on time but the wheel on my heavy case broke so I had to drag it along the road my partner ran ahead and informed the driver who turned out to be very rude and aggressive. He shouted at my partner to get off as he had to go, my partner told the driver that I was at the end of the bus and that I was coming the driver told my partner to help me and he… Read Full Review

“Unreliable, Dangerous Driving!!”

Written on: 29/08/2012

I travelled with Megabus Cardiff to London in August 2012. A double decker bus load of passengers were left waiting outside our bus in the pouring rain for over one hour after the departure time. The bus driver only let us on the bus when somebody knocked on the window. I can only imagine what he was doing on the bus for all that time but he was definitely unstable. He delayed us another fifteen minutes because he was unable to shut a door. During the journey he pulled over onto the hard… Read Full Review

“No Problems”

Written on: 19/08/2012

I recently travelled by Megabus to London from Leeds and couldn't find any faults with the service. The driver stopped at Sheffield for 15 minutes and got in to Victoria 15 minutes early. The return journey, the driver stopped for 30 minutes at the services. The bus was full but that wasn't a problem and you get what you pay for and if you dont mind sitting next to a stranger, you cant go wrong… Read Full Review

“You get what you pay for, nothing more, nothing less.”

Written on: 09/08/2012

After reading a few reviews on this and many other sites I always ask myself the same question: Why do people always think megabus are going to be perfect? Sure, the drivers can be a little rude at times. Sure, the buses can be late on arrival/departure but these instances only happen to myself, a constant user of megabus.com to Leeds/Bradford/Newcastle/Birmingham from London, once in every 4/5 return journeys working out to be once in every 8-10 journeys. The first thing people have to… Read Full Review

“Worst bus service you will ever have”

Written on: 30/07/2012 by vargkey (1 review written)

This bus may offer you the ticket for a cheaper price . But beware their service is also as cheaper as the price . I traveled in their bus to edinburgh scotlanf from london . Overall the ride was bumpy , it will shook your sleep off. felt like sitting inside the oven throughout the journey ( 8hrs ) . it was so hot that inspite of repeated request the driver won't turn it on beyond 15min . very bad attitude . … Read Full Review

“cheap, quick trip to london!!”

Written on: 09/07/2012

booked with megabus because we wanted to be in london early, and at £6.50 for 2 adults it beats the price of a train hands down! when we arrived in sheffield to get on the megabus, we were told by the driver that our booking reference said we were to get on the next bus, but as it hadn't arrived by the time he was setting off we were allowed to go with us (our times for departure and arrival were exactly those of this coach, and the next one didn't turn up whilst we were there) on the way down… Read Full Review

“Never ever opt for this bus even if you have to pay 10...”

Written on: 29/06/2012 by Lr123 (1 review written)

Never ever opt for this bus even if you have to pay 10 pounds extra try national express. Megabus staff treat you like animals more than humans. They are rude and never give u proper information. First day experience for me in mega bus. Lady in the reception told bus is half hour delayed and when I asked controller after half hour he told bus has already left.all buses were delayed for more than 45 minutes and I have never seen any un civilised staff like that of mega bus. I would give a minus… Read Full Review

I think you've got your companies mixed up, in my experience National Express are pure evil, whereas Megabus staff are chilled and pleasant.

“Not too bad but has its flaws.”

Written on: 22/06/2012 by decemberboy (1 review written)

Having been offered a ticket to see one of my musical heroes Bruce Springsteen in Sunderland I decided to have a look at Megabus as an alternative to the more expensive National Express, being on a tight budget the train was out of the question. A quick look on their website and I'd found a return from Birmingham to Newcastle (where my hotel was) for £25, which I found to be fantastic value for money even if it meant a longer journey. Arriving at my stop in Birmingham in plenty of time for… Read Full Review

“Worst coach service providers ”

Written on: 20/06/2012 by Ruhr (1 review written)

Hate megabus with passion. Hasnt happened once, or twice and numerous occasions. The only reason am giving them a one star is they ve got polite drivers. If not mega bus can delay u for hours. There was one occasion I had to wait for 3 hours till 22 mid night to get a taxi home cos they didn't turn up. As an writing now am waiting for service 35 from Bristol Uwe to which was supposed to turn up at 16:35… Read Full Review

“Cheap and cheerful”

Written on: 10/06/2012

Me, my mum and little brother used this service to visit my dad who is working away in London. We booked online, and only found out (after noticing the small print AFTER we had ordered) that the megabus would only take us part way to east midlands parkway, at which we would board a train to take us to St Pancras. We wanted a journey as smooth as possible because my brother has anxiety problems. We tried to explain and get a refund, but we could not. On the outbound journey, the coach was jam… Read Full Review

“Disgusted by staff behaviour”

Written on: 23/05/2012

The most horrible staff and customer service. Yes it's cheap and it is ideal in this current hard financial time but we don't deserve the rudeness and Un professional behaviour by staff, specialy the drivers, they think we are cheap and we don't deserve better service. I had a return ticket from London to Leeds in Victoria bus station. I saw two bus came on same stand and in last 10 minutes they decided to change the stand and I was not aware of that. When I noticed the stand gate says Cardiff… Read Full Review

“London to France on Megabus”

Written on: 21/05/2012 by Carrie-Anne (1 review written)

After reading a number of bad reviews I was a little concerned about the trip to France I had booked with Megabus. Nevertheless off we went to London Victoria a few weekends ago. The bus arrived on time, was clean comfortable and even had wireless :D We arrived at Dover with plenty of time to stretch our legs and get some fresh air. We chatted to our driver who knew the area we were staying in and offered us directions to our hotel and advise on the procedure for the return pick up. V… Read Full Review

“Amazing!”

Written on: 11/05/2012 by ruby_miller (1 review written)

People love moaning don't they? I've been using the Megabus to get around the UK for years, and think it's brilliant value for money, especially as train fares are so extortionate now as well. I have had a few delays, it's true - but nothing too horrendous. Out of about 20 journeys, I've had 2 delays. Which is probably on a par with trains to be fair. No, it's not as comfortable or quick as a train - but it's a bus, so what do you expect? As I said before - amazing value for money, and I… Read Full Review
