Types & Benefits of MegaBus Promo Codes

When you search for the phrases, Megabus promo code and Megabus coupon, chances are you’re on the hunt for a great deal for your weekend bus ticket. When traveling with Megabus, you’ll find different types of promo codes — from $1 tickets to others from partner websites. Here are some of the top benefits that you’ll receive when redeeming a MegaBus promo code:

  1. Low price or free tickets
  2. Overnight stays at your favorite hotels
  3. Premium discounts and deals

Many of these Megabus promo codes are only made available after making a purchase from one of Megabus’ partners. You don’t have to purchase an item in-person in order to get access to a Megabus promo code; in fact, many of these are made available after online purchases. Ultimately, they’ll help you reduce the cost of your travel and get to your destination in a way that is fast and affordable. 

Megabus Promo Code: Best Way to Find $1 Tickets

Everyone who books their tickets online with Megabus or Wanderu is searching for the $1 ticket. Some have lived the dream of the cheap trip, but others scour Wanderu and Megabus for hours, hoping to find a famous dollar ticket!

But few people know how to find Megabus promo codes to reserve the elusive $1 ticket. Here are some strategies to find a Megabus promo code on Wanderu:

  1. Book 2-4 weeks in advance, or earlier
  2. Keep flexible arrival and departure dates
  3. Book regional travel

How to Use MegaBus Coupons

Once you’ve received your Megabus promo code, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s easy to use online! You can apply for the code with any participating partner and enter your code while booking online. If you’re not entering a specific code from a Megabus coupon, then your promo code will be valid on checkout for all $1 tickets. 

Why does Megabus offer these $1 tickets?

You might be thinking to yourself, well how can Megabus afford to offer these unbelievably inexpensive prices? Promo codes are a great way for MegaBus to encourage passengers to travel to their favorite destinations and try out their coach buses. It gives passengers the opportunity to try out their services and existing passengers an incentive to keep their eyes peeled for a Megabus promo code.

Are MegaBus promo codes applicable to all routes?

You can easily find a MegaBus promo code or coupon for any route. If you’re looking for a promo code on a popular bus route, then make sure to book early.

Since the price of a route varies based on the date you book and popularity, finding a Megabus promo code for certain routes can be challenging. Booking a day ahead of time on a Friday night bus during a peak travel weekend isn’t going to be cheap — and it’s very unlikely that you’ll find a Mega Bus promo code.

When is the best time to find a Megabus promo code?

Megabus promo codes are easiest to find when few tickets have been booked on the bus. To take advantage of this, book as well in advance as possible. Lets say you’re not sure what weekend in December you’re going to travel on, but you want to plan ahead. If it’s May, why not take the plunge and buy tickets for two weekends?

By booking far out, you make sure that tickets are at their cheapest price. By the time your plans are set in stone, the tickets could be super expensive and possibly unavailable. Combined with buying in advance, booking off peak times is the other key to the $1 Megabus tickets.

If you’re able to travel at a less popular time, then you’ll have the opportunity to snag a Megabus promo code. Less traveled routes are going to fill up slowly, so the $1 MegaBus tickets stay up for grabs longer. On the other hand, for popular routes — you can never book too early.

*Remember that no unique Megabus coupon is required to snag a $1 deal. Megabus promo codes for $1 tickets are offered on everyday routes and times.

Other Types of Megabus Promo Codes

One of the most popular times that Megabus offers a promo code to riders is when they open new routes around the country. If you’re a longtime Megabus user, then you might remember back in 2013 when Megabus offered 10,000 customers $1 tickets to celebrate launching their service in Texas.

Recently, Megabus expanded their promo code offers to include a low price seat each Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday in twenty-eight major cities. When these types of promo codes and coupons are released, we’ll announce the updates on Facebook and Twitter. Make sure you follow along to get the most up-to-date information on Megabus promo codes and coupons.

    It’s cheaper to fly Spirit Airlines from Baltimore, MD to Atlanta, GA than to take a bus.

    In fact, I could fly round trip from Baltimore, MD to Atlanta, GA not once, but TWICE on Spirit Airlines…and the bus would still cost more.

    Consumers have a choice in travel options.. and they appreciate us for choosing….whatever is best.

    Why won’t the Megabus lady (or man) tell us how to get the $1 fare?

    Just give me a couple tricks or tell me how it works. I don’t need $1 fare every time I choose to travel — I just want to know how to get it if I maybe wanted to take advantage of it. Tell us the secrets, Megabus Lady (or man)

      Hi Sharon! Thanks for reaching out and using Wanderu!

      ​At the moment, we do not offer any promo codes. However, there are a certain amount of $1 tickets offered for some routes on multiple dates. Once those are purchased, the rest of the available tickets for that trip are sold at a different price.

      ​Since the price changes depending on availability, we have no way of knowing when $1 tickets are available or when they are already sold out.

      ​Please let me know if you have further questions, and happy travels!
