Advantages: Cheap and arrives on time
Disadvantages: No legroom
When it comes to coach travel Megabus is usually the cheapest option. I have travelled with them a few times both on the regular coach and the sleeper bus service. Travelling by the regular coach is usually ridiculously cheap, even if you buy on the day of travel. However you do get what you pay for. The coach is usually crammed full, there is very little legroom and the coach can be noisy. If you are travelling at night it can be hard to sleep with other passengers chatting, listening to music and the noise of the actual coach so if you do plan to sleep take some ear plugs. The seats aren't as comfortable as they are on some other coach services. However the coach journey is usually quick and most services will arrive on time.
Travelling by the sleeper bus service is a lot more preferable if you are travelling to London. It is more expensive than the usual Megabus service but still cheaper than most regular coach services on the same route. There is both a bed and a seat allocated for each passenger. There will be 3 beds in a bunk bed and it can be quite a challenge getting into your bunk. Once your in however it is quite comfortable although there isn't much room. There is a pillow and duvet provided in addition to a sleeping mask. The ride is fairly smooth although the engine is quite loud. One benefit though is that people have paid extra to sleep on this service so there is no chatter and it is a lot easier to get some sleep.
I'd definitely recommend the sleeper service to anyone travelling to London as it is good value for money however with the usual Megabus service it's important to remember it is cheap for a reason.
Summary: Excellent service for the price
