National Express Customer Reviews

A bit confusing to use the site

Used the National Express website to look up the time tables for trains from London to Bath on a recent holiday. It was a bit confusing to use the website for a first timer, but eventually I found what I needed and all of the schedules were available. I didn't see the use in booking online, as I could just book the tickets at the train station in London.

Why not see everything by coach?

This coach booking service is fab. I’m single and love to travel, but I don’t necessarily like being all by myself. And I hate flying. So taking coaches and/or coach tours into Europe is ideal for me. This summer I really wanted to visit Prague, so I got online and starting searching. The trains were really pricey and took nearly as long as the bus, so I opted for this coach service and I’m so glad I did. The transport was dirt cheap, and the trip was fantastic. I met people, made friends and got to see the European countryside in the process.

Coach travel is efficient and saved lots of my student budget!

Being a student, I split my time between two cities. I need to get back to my hometown often because I like to see my friends and family as much as I can.

More often than not, a National Express coach is a much cheaper option than train or car travel. Funfares, which are non-transferable and non-refundable are a great, cheap option. The booking system on the website is straight forward and you can have a seat booked on a coach within five minutes of logging on. The quickest journey time is always marked when you are choosing which coach to book, so you know which is most efficient time-wise. When you book a seat you are emailed an e-ticket. You need to print this and take it with you to show the driver before you board the coach. If you don't have a printer you can receive a text message ticket, which can be shown to the driver in the same way. I often chosen to do this because although there is a 50p charge added to your booking, I think it’s worth it because my phone is something I always have on me so I don’t need to remember where I put my ticket!

I wouldn’t say that coach travel is my first choice for intercity travel in the UK, but if the trains are too pricey, I can always rely on National Express for a simple, cheap and comfortable journey.

Simple to book tickets online with National Express

Travelling by coach can be cheaper than the trains, so from time to time I'll take the National Express to visit my daughter at Oxford. The first time I used the site it was a bit difficult to determine how to use the promo code but then when you realise it, its quite easy. The bus trip isn't bad and I like that you save quite a bit. I noticed theyre offering coaches to the Olympic Park this summer so I'm going to have to book our seats in advance, as we were lucky enough to get tickets in the lottery!
