When it comes to booking travel, we all like to save a few pennies and get the very best deal. If you’re looking for a bargain, we have a few insider tips to help you find the cheapest fares!
If you book your tickets three days or more before your travel date, you’ll have a better chance of finding our lowest fares. The earlier you can book the more likely you are to bag a bargain. Once you find your fare, snap it up before someone else does.
If you can travel after 9.30am on weekdays and avoid peak times you’ll usually get the best fares. If you don’t mind travelling later in the evening or early in the morning, there are usually some great fares to be found at these times too. Plus, travelling at a quieter time means you’re less likely to run into a traffic jam!
Are you able to start your trip a day before you planned or a few hours later? If you can be flexible with the day and time of your arrival at your destination, you are more likely to find the lower priced fares.
We release thousands of low fares every month, starting from £5 one-way plus £1 booking fee. While these fares are very popular, there are plenty to be had. If you need help finding how many low fares are available on your route, you can now use our new dedicated ticket availability page. It’s very helpful, click here to see it in action!
Our popular Coachcards give you a 1/3 off Standard and Fully Flexible fares, all year round. There are three Coachcards on offer:
Senior Coachcard; for those 60 years or over, which also allows special Tuesday offers
Young Persons Coachcard; offers discounted travel for those aged between 16 and 26 years old
Disabled Coachcard; for those who are registered as disabled
Are you travelling with friends or family? If you book at least three days in advance for four or more adults, and you’ll get 25% off standard fares. You can also use this discount on airport transfers, so be sure to take a look at this if you’re getting on a plane anytime soon. Why spend hours trawling the internet for the best flight deals and then spend your savings on airport parking? Start your holiday early by travelling to the airport by coach.
