This list of super-cheap train and coach deals will help you cut travel costs to the bone – sometimes to just Ј1 each way.
50,000 ‘free’ Megabus tickets (50p booking fee)* All services incl Europe from 12 Jan-12 Feb. Tix released daily
Budget coach travel provider Megabus* is offering 50,000 free one-way tickets on all of its routes in England, Scotland, Wales and Europe for travel between Tue 12 Jan and Fri 12 Feb. You ll just need to pay a 50p booking fee per transaction, not per ticket.
Megabus says there are free seats on all of its services, seven days a week. Tickets are released 60 days before travel (regardless if you re booking or travelling on a weekend) and as the free tickets on popular routes are likely to be snapped up within hours of release you ll have to be quick off the mark. There s no maximum on how many tickets you can get per transaction.
In the past, Megabus has offered 20,000 free tickets, so this is its biggest seat giveaway yet. Megabus covers most of Great Britain and parts of Europe, including Barcelona, Amsterdam, Brussels and Milan.
How to find the free seats
While 50,000 sounds a lot, they can still take some finding as services will have a different number of free seats available. Megabus says the tickets are released in tranches on its website every day, so if you can t find a free ticket one day, don t give up, as one might appear later in the promo. Any available tickets will say 0.00.
If you can t find any free seats, most routes start from 1, plus the 50p booking fee, but can cost a lot more depending on the route and when you re booking.
This offer only applies to Megabus journeys and is not applicable for some Stagecoach operated services.
