Megabus logoMegabus £2.50 advance returns*Incl coach, train & both. Ongoing offer. Limited avail

Book well ahead

If you go online to Megabus*, if you get lucky, you can book rail and coach travel across the UK and Europe from £1 each way (plus 50p booking fee, so from £2.50 return). We've spotted cheap fares for travel up to February 2017 on some routes - it's worth checking back regularly.

It offers cheap tickets on coaches (Megabus), trains (Megatrain) and a combination of the two (Megaplusbus).

These £1 fares sell out quickly, so try to book months in advance where possible, be flexible with your dates and be prepared to travel at unsociable hours. Even if you miss out on £1 deals, we found many £10 and under singles which aren't bad. See the Megabus route map.

Example £1 each way fares

When we checked on Mon 12 Dec, £1 single tickets were available on routes from:

Megabus:

  • Manchester to London, departs 7.30am on Thu 9 Feb.
  • Birmingham to Bristol, departs 9.05am on Mon 6 Feb.
  • Newcastle to Edinburgh, departs 4pm on Thu 9 Feb.

  • How to book them

    The sub-£10 deals, if available, should appear as normal. Simply choose where you're travelling from and to and select "all" under "travelling by" to show results for both bus and train.

    Megabus has told us tickets are released for destinations in waves, usually about a month and a half before travel date, so keep checking back for later tickets if they're not available on your chosen route yet.

    Section 75

    Free protection for all shopping!

    There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

    And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
