Reasons to trust the nation’s number one

Choose Your Journey


Children under 14 years of age are not permitted to travel without being accompanied throughout the journey by a responsible person aged 16 years or over.
Children aged 14 - 15 years old may travel unaccompanied, as from 5am, arriving at their booked destination no later than 10pm. Unaccompanied children will be asked for proof of age or a signed letter of permission from their parent/guardian. (sms or chat based messages are not permissible)

One infant aged 0-2 travels free when accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket. Additional infants aged 0-2 must be paid for. If you are travelling with more than 1 infant aged 0-2, please book the additional infant as 'Children (3-15).


It’s about more than just getting from here to there. 

As the nation’s number 1 coach operator, we’re all about giving you more.

More value for money by offering low fares but first-class quality. More comfort thanks to comfy seats, loads of legroom, free Wi-Fi, power sockets and unrivalled safety. More convenience because we operate right across the UK with more stops and services than any other coach company. All alongside easy booking and our friendly customer service. So friendly in fact, our happy customers rave about us on TrustPilot.

Travelling with us is greener than other coach companies, taking the train or going by car. And we’re only going to get greener still thanks to huge, ongoing investment.

There are so many fantastic reasons to choose National Express. But every single reason points the same way.

We are National Express. This is the direction of travel.


A better 2021

"We want to make coach travel more convenient and with even greater value in 2021"

- Chris Hardy, Managing Director of National Express UK Coach


We've redesigned our network, looking at locations, routes and frequency of services.

A new full UK-wide timetable will offer quicker journey times, increased punctuality and improved connectivity. Plus, new schedules will make major UK holiday destinations more accessible than ever.

“This is a challenging but exciting time for us. Like the rest of the population, we look forward to being able to see friends and family, go on holiday, attend events and visit attractions again. National Express has always helped make this happen and we look forward to doing it once more.”
