    One million cheap fares for travel up to 20 Apr. £1 booking fee


    National Express is offering one million single coach fares for £5 or less via this National Express* link, for travel until Fri 20 Apr.

    The cheap fares (plus £1 booking fee per transaction) are randomly spread on hundreds of its routes including singles from Birmingham to London for £1.50, Manchester to Sheffield for £2.90, and Cardiff to London for £5 – see 'More info' for a list of popular routes and cheap tickets available.

    How do I find the cheap fares?

    National Express £5 or less ticketsThe cheap fares are randomly spread throughout the booking period, so it could be pot luck finding the cheapest fares on a specific coach on a specific date – you'll have more chance the more flexible you are. After you've selected your journey and dates, you'll be able to see the cheapest tickets available (see image).

    Popular times are expected to go quickly, and there's limited availability during peak times, half-term and Easter holidays.

    The tickets are 'restricted' fares, which aren't amendable and are non-refundable.

    There's a £1 booking fee per transaction and you can print your tickets at home for free, otherwise you'll pay an extra £2.50 to have your tickets posted to you or £1 to have them sent to your mobile phone.

    Will these fares always be cheapest?

    Most of the time, these cheap 'restricted' fares should be cheaper than a 'standard' or 'flexible' fare, but if you have a National Express Coachcard (this works similar to a railcard and gets a third off standard fares), then sometimes it may be cheaper to buy a standard fare ticket with a Coachcard if the restricted fare is less than 33% cheaper than the standard fare.
