I LOVE MEGABUS!!
In the good old days when they first started, you could actually get fares for FREE and only pay the 50p booking charge! These days they are more 'expensive' but are more often than not, much much cheaper than taking the train.
My main journey I use is London - Cardiff. The bus journey is actually just 45 mins longer than the train. It is important to book as far ahead as possible. I've found that if you can book 2 months in advance you can get one way fares for less than £5.
Is it value for money? Well, would you complain at a round trip from London to Cardiff for under £10??
Megabus used to just that...double decker buses and very uncomfortable. Now they use proper coaches.
Travelling is never exciting or all that pleasant, but knowing that I am travelling for a fraction of the cost of a passenger who may be sat in front of me who had only booked a few days ago makes me feel terribly smug!
The drivers are very cool - friendly and informative, its an added touch that I never expect. Good for them
Summary: A thrifty way of travelling
