Megabus UK passenger reviews



September 13, 2023- Solo travel

London to Glasgow

Pros: The seats are very very uncomfortable. Fixed into a leaning position. My charger USB didn't work and couldn't connect to internet going and coming back. Cons: Usb port, seats, internet provision.



June 26, 2023- Business

Birmingham to Swindon

Pros: I think they can improve on time as most I end turning up late to work 😴 and it's not good to my records. Thanks. Cons: Timing. Tips: Go for it, it worth it!



February 20, 2023- Solo travel

London to Edinburgh

Pros: The trip overall was lovely. Multiple interactions with Megabus staff and everyone was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this way of getting from London to Edinburgh to just about anyone (though I'm not sure how well they can accommodate those with limited mobility). The landscape along the way is gorgeous, this is a great way of seeing some of the countryside. Cons: My only complaint would be that, as much as I'm grateful to have had bathroom facilities available on board, I do wish the rest of the bus wouldn't have smelled of those facilities throughout the trip. Tips: Please manage your expectations and be reasonable. I feel like so many of the complaints I saw before my own experience now seem like people who wanted a first class experience at bargain prices. At under $20, I was grateful for a clean, reasonably comfortable seat from point A to point B with a driver who clearly did that route often and wasn't being reckless about it. No unnecessary detours, we left on time and yes, we did arrive late but when I looked back I don't see how we could have done it faster (safely). We did encounter some construction along the route, so maybe try to factor that possibility into your journey as well.



February 19, 2023- Business

Leeds to London

Pros: The first hour was nice when I had a seat to myself. Cons: There was a fair bit of overlap on seats and we were delayed at every turn. Especially at the beginning the driver did not adequately explain what exactly was being transferred from one bus to another which we had to wait for longer than the five minutes he said. Again: what cargo was it we were waiting on for 20 minutes? Tips: If you’re going from Leeds bus station the boarding bits are separated by company but there is no distinction between what is a coach and what is a bus so look out for that.



February 18, 2023- Business

Birmingham to Swindon

Pros: Nice car and clean with good driver. Cons: timing was not good enough, waited for almost an hr before the bus came. Tips: In general, it's good bargain if you are not in haste as you may out due to delay.
