Why travel to university by coach?

A fair & affordable price

We know that when it comes to student life, every penny counts. That's why we're really proud to take students across the country for a fair and affordable price, without cutting corners on quality.

Onboard our coaches there's no standing in carriages or sitting on floors, every passenger is guaranteed a seat. Plus, you'll get to stretch out with plenty of legroom, adjust your own air-conditioning, keep your phone charged up and more.

Watch a movie for free

If all that wasn't enough, our digital streaming app, VUER, gives you the chance to catch great films and TV from the comfort of your seat. You'll be able to connect to free Wi-Fi and browse plenty of content, from blockbusters to cult classics.

Enjoy a journey that's convenient for you

With our frequent services and coach stops and stations throughout the country, travelling to university has never been simpler. Many of our services even stop at your university campus itself so check out the blue journey planner above for more information.

Plus, if you're an international student, we have even more good news. Our services to the UK's major airports mean travelling in and out of the country doesn't have to cost the world. You can even bring two 20kg bags onboard our coaches, just make sure to check your allowance for your flight too.

If you're aged 16-26 or are a full-time student and looking to save money on travel, then our Young Persons Coachcard is ideal for you.
