National Express coach travel to Nottingham

Our partnership with Nottingham Trent University means travelling from the airport is easy! Board your coach at Heathrow Airport and travel directly to the centre of Nottingham for free.

How to book your travel

  • This offer is for new students only and it is limited to one ticket per new NTU student.
  • Select your pick-up location and date of travel using the journey planner.
  • Choose a direct service that does not change at London Victoria Coach Station. It is often very busy and may be difficult with luggage.
  • Choose the time you would like to travel. Allow a minimum of 2.5 hours between landing and the coach departure time. We advise joining the coach queue 20-30 minutes before it departs.
  • Select the ‘fully flexible’ ticket so that you can make changes to your booking without paying a fee.
  • Continue to the 'extras' page. Many students have more luggage than the National Express allowance. Please check the dimensions and weights of your luggage and add any additional luggage to the booking. Please note any 'extras' will be charged at checkout.
  • Select ‘checkout as guest'.
  • Enter your name and email address to receive your e-ticket.
  • If you are bringing a guest, they need to book and pay for a ticket on the National Express website. This offer is limited to one ticket per new NTU student.
