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 Helpful. Ferry left on time and we arrived in France with no hitch.
It was late at night by this time but our driver was still in high spirits. We arrived in Bolounge right on time as per the schedule. The Bus changed drivers and carried on to Paris. Our driver ensured we knew where we were going to get to our hotel before letting us set off. We saw him the next day as we were wondering about the town and we gave him a friendly wave.
On our return Journey we were a little early to be on the safe side and our bus en route from Paris had already arrived. We hoped on and set off earlier than planned allowing us to catch an earlier ferry from Calais - Brilliant. Again our driver was fantastic and we spent much of the ferry ride back chatting to him. We arrived back in London an hour ahead of schedule which in my mind is fantastic. Overall my experience with Megabus was brilliant. I am sure it doesn't always go as smoothly as ours did - sometimes things happen - but I would definitely recommend and use them again. £30 return to France - YES PLEASE!
