“Really good service! ”

Written on: 28/09/2013

Megabus in my opinion are one of the best services going to London from Cardiff. Their prices are always cheap and there coaches frequent. On my last five coaches, ive found the coach driver to be polite (even funny at times), i find the coaches to be clean and spacious. I never use the toilet as its just a habit of mine. I love the free wifi and charging points. I prefer not to use public toilets. I went on national express because a friend had booked via national express and i was suprised… Read Full Review

“Some points about Megabus.com”

Written on: 24/09/2013

I have been a frequent user of National Express services between Bristol and London but I have recently switched to using Megabus. In a lot of ways I have found the vehicles to be more superior and on a number of occasions, the journey has been cheaper than National Express. The Megabus staff at Victoria Coach Station have always been polite and helpful and ready to provide assistance when needed. I have also found the drivers to be extremely friendly and ready to assist when required. A few… Read Full Review

“Cheap price, cheap service.”

Written on: 22/09/2013

I travelled from Inverness to London on a double decker Megabus and it was one of the worst experiencesof my life. The plug sockets didn't work nor did the WiFi (Megabus do state that they can't guarantee this service, however I feel that when you are aware that somebody is on that coach for 14 hours, you would at least try and provide a bus with that working service. My phone died and I didn't keep it on all of the time, only turning it on to update family as to where I was, I was stuck with a… Read Full Review

“Cheapest option but not recomendable”

Written on: 21/09/2013 by Ishant (1 review written)

I really appreciate them that they have a very cheap bus service but i am travelling with them everyweekened from last 2 months. I really want to share my experiences. 1. No clean toilets at all. Toilets are not clean at all. Lot of other people have complained it but i don't think they are trying to work on it. 2. Mobile charging. That was the only thing which they i prefered over national express but in my 7 journeys it was only once when it was working. When i spoke to them the driver… Read Full Review

“Megabus Gold Sleeper Glasgow to London”

Written on: 01/09/2013

I have travelled ny many modes of transport, in many different countries over the past 40 years. This rates as the WORST travel experience of my life. I had a lower bed, with was sectioned into two compartments, to make two "beds" with another over the top. The space was so tight, it felt as though I was buried alive inside a coffin for 8 long hours. It will take me some time to recover from this horrendous experience. … Read Full Review

“Megabus Gold - Cardiff to London”

Written on: 19/08/2013

Travelled Cardiff to London Megabus Gold, tickets were selling for fiver on the day. The interior is nice, but was disappointed all the seat upstairs were facing each other, felt awkward and most passengers were either on their phones throughout entire journey, or trying to avoid eye contact. Personally I think you could still have forward facing seat upstairs, and tables, I couldn't wait for the journey to be finished. One girl said we are all sitting facing each other and no one is… Read Full Review

“Dangerous drivers and very rude”

Written on: 18/08/2013 by H229 (1 review written)

I travelled from London to Paris on the 10.30 am bus on the 14th if August and returned on the 11am bus on the 17th August. The journey started well with easy check in, but that's where it ended. Driving down the motorway, the driver pulled on to the hard shoulder at the bottom of a slip road, slammed on his breaks, jumped out if his seat and informed us he ' could wait no longer' and he ran up the bus to the toilet! A bus full of passengers, on the hard shoulder if the motorway whilst the… Read Full Review

“Never again - was told to f-off by a driver - charming!!!”

Written on: 16/08/2013

I should point out that I'm not a fan of bus travel but decided to use Megabus as it was significantly cheaper than the alternatives from Aberdeen to Sheffield. I thought it might be 'an experience'. It certainly was! Not in a good way! The attitude of the staff I encountered in Aberdeen was a display of, by far, the worst attitude to customer service I've ever endured. OK, so the travel is cheap, but that doesn't excuse the following... On arrival at the bus station, I'd planned to ask a… Read Full Review

“What a joke!!”

Written on: 03/08/2013 by Lozwags (1 review written)

We where traveling from London to Manchester using this low cost service. About an hour into our 4 hour journey smoke was filling the bus. Once the driver stopped we where told it was the air conditioner belt. Which would have been so bad except it was the hottest day in london since 2003. Once the bus finally got to the next point for a new bus to collect us, we where left in the dark and noone advising on what was happening. Next bus came to pick up the 45 + passengers only to smash into the… Read Full Review

“Why wait ??”

Written on: 02/08/2013 by Ladyike (1 review written)

I traveled round trip from Houston to San Antonio on a double decker and the staff was prompt, caring and courteous. My two suggestions to speed things up and ease congestion would be to have a separate checkin process for travelers boarding without luggage and when offloading, the top level passengers can exit from the front entrance while the lower level passengers can exit the rear. Houston would love to have a stop from Houston to Beaumont or Port Arthur TX… Read Full Review

“Worst Experience with a Travel Company”

Written on: 30/06/2013 by Tom_B (1 review written)

Myself and a family member booked a return journey with Megabus from Doncaster to Silverstone for the 2013 F1 British Grand Prix. The bus was due to depart from the pickup point at 0745, therefore we arrived there at 0715 to be on the safe side. Altogether there were at least 13 people at the pickup point waiting for the bus. By 0800 there was still no bus, so one member of the group waiting rang the Megabus helpline, who told him they would find out where the bus was and ring him back within… Read Full Review

“worst journey ever!!!”

Written on: 27/06/2013 by sam4110 (1 review written)

We booked the mega bus sleeper from Glasgow to London and had the unfortunate experience with the new double decker fleets. The top bunks are no more than a hammock, beware the double bottom bunks may have to be shared with a complete stranger. We will not be doing the return journey as planned it was that horrible. I really don't know why the changed from the old fleet. The most uncomfortable night of my entire life. Beds are hard and the pillow is about the size of an a4 sheet of paper. My… Read Full Review

“Very decent service - St Pancras to Hull and back.”

Written on: 10/06/2013 by Andrew713 (1 review written)

Found the megabus service very decent. The trip from St Pancras to Hull and back was totally uneventful with very good connections. The bus was clean. The bus / train went on time and connected well with the train / bus in both directions (via East Midlands Parkway). The price was fine. I would definitely recommend the service based on my experience of the service. The only slight delay going up was the drop off at Scunthorpe but it did then allow for a lovely view of the Humber. On the way… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/06/2013

The stupid driver left me and another girl at manchester without knowing it because we were on the toilet of the station. As always, the toilet on the bus was broken, so after 5 hours of travelling, i asked to the driver when we were stopped in manchester if it was possible to go to the bathroom very quickly, he said yes. when i came back 2min after the bus was gone !!!! and the worst is that another girl i didn't know was in the same situation than me ! the driver didn't checked the bus even… Read Full Review

“Terrible...”

Written on: 05/06/2013

I booked Megabus Montreal to Toronto roundtrip and it was the most uncomfortable bus ride I ever went on! First off, after having taken Megabus about 15-20 times I NEVER HAD A 10$ TRIP so I don't know where they're pulling that amount out from, the cheapest I ever had was 40-50$ - so in my own opinion, the morale of the story should be to NOT "advertise something Megabus Canada CANT guarantee." Secondly, half the times I go on a Megabus, their internet does not work. Whats up with that? Don't… Read Full Review

“No bus!”

Written on: 17/05/2013

I booked to travel from Edinburgh Airport to Inverness on 8th May. While waiting for the 8.30pm bus at the airport I realised that by 8.50 that the bus from the Park and Ride at Inverkeithing was on a Bank Holiday timetable and therefore I was going to miss my connection at 9.15 if I waited until the next bus at 9.00pm. I was forced to take a Taxi at the cost of £26 or risk being stranded at the Park and Ride! How could I book a bus that didn't exist! Up till now I was very happy with… Read Full Review

did you book two seperate tickets or was it one ticket from Airport to Inverness with times on it> If so the Megabus are liable to pay but if was two tickets then you are on your own
