If you click a link with an * to go through to a provider, we may get paid. This usually only happens if you get a product from it. This is what funds our team of journalists, and keeps us free to use. Yet there are two crucial things you need to know about this.
- This never impacts our editorial recommendations – if it's in, it's in there because we independently rate it best.
- You'll always get as good a deal (or better) than if you went direct.

There are always ways to save money at Megabus*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.
Ways to save include:
- Book early and be flexible. Megabus allows you to book about four months in advance, so if you book early and are flexible with your dates and travel times, you'll have a better chance of bagging a £1 fare.
- Check out similar companies. Have a look at our deals from National Express, where there may be a better offer.
- Want more? Take a look at our cheap train and coach deals to see how you can save money on travel costs.
- Had a problem with Megabus? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Megabus*.

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.
