Postage information: If you choose to have your ticket posted to you, you'll need to allow 7 days for delivery in the UK, 14 days for delivery to Europe, and 28 days for delivery to the rest of the world.

To keep our fares as low as possible, and to be totally transparent with our customers, we charge separate fees for the different parts of our service, rather than rolling them into our ticket prices and charging you more.
We charge different booking fees dependent on the booking method, and we always try to keep them as low as possible. Our booking charges are:
The booking fees also cover all standard debit/credit card fees and reservation costs.
To mitigate against rising business costs and continue to offer you the best possible fares, we charge a £2.50 fee for posting your ticket to you. If you’ve chosen to have an SMS ticket sent to your mobile via text message, we charge a £1 delivery fee.
Standard Fare: A £5.00 amendment fee will apply and excess fare will also be charged, where a higher fare applies to the requested amendment. Amending your ticket via telephone will be subject to a £6.00 amendment fee, plus any excess fare if applicable.
Fully Flexible Fare: Unlimited amendments can be made any time prior to departure without incurring an amendment fee.
How amendments are calculated: new fare - original fare paid = excess fee (+ standard amendment fee).
For example, if your new fare is £15, minus your original fare of £10, the excess fee is £5 (plus the standard £5 amendment fee).
Tip: For airport journeys our Change Coach add-on allows you to change or change or cancel your booking up to 24 hours before travel. You can add this option to Standard Fare Tickets” during the checkout process.
Refunds - Refunds can be made 72 hours before your outbound journey is made, but only on refundable tickets (see Fares, tickets and Coachcards for more information).
Cancellations - Tickets that have the flexible add-on included can be cancelled 24hrs before you are due to travel.
The flexible add-on cost is not refundable, but the remainder of the cost can be refunded. If you cancel your ticket and don't have the flexible add-on, our standard cancellation fee of £5 applies.
