Megabus is Pretty Much Giving Away Seats in the UK
November 7, 2012 at 6:54 PM
Everyone knows that those low-cost carriers practically give away the cheap flights over in Europe, but there’s also another kind of low-cost carrier—buses.
Megabus has made its way to the shores of the United States, but they still have a special place in their hearts for the citizens across the pond. That's especially the case for those who call the United Kingdom home.
To celebrate winter they’re giving away 10,000 free tickets to destinations all over the country, and it’s all part of their Megabus Winter Sale. Just like the cheapie airlines, these ground guys also know how to stick it to travelers when it comes to the fees and charges. The free tickets are almost free, as you'll still be plonking down 50 pence as a reservation fee.
You’ll need to use your best travel booking skills to scour the days and times for best availability. Basically it boils down to options running between January 14 and February 28. Even if you can’t score a practically free seat you can just grab a practically practically free seat, as there are still plenty of options for £1 plus the 50 pence booking fee. Options include routes across England and Wales, so if you need to see a little bit of the country in 2013 here’s a way to get it done.
