Whether you’re looking for coach tickets for work or leisure, taking a regular journey or travelling to a special event, it’s likely that National Express have a departure to get you where you need to go.

Countless National Express coaches travel up and down Britain’s roads every day, serving hundreds of destinations and operating out of 30 coach stations.

Saving you money on your next trip

You probably already know that National Express is a great way to find cheap tickets for both UK and international travel. If you’re travelling on a budget, check out their low fare finder, where you can get your hands on loads of great value fares for £5 or less and any National Express vouchers.

If you want to save even more on their prices, look into picking up one of their Coachcards which offer a third off regular fares for disabled passengers and passengers over 60 or between 16 and 26.

You can also get discounts on National Express tickets if you’re travelling in a group of four or more. Whatever your situation, it’s well worth visiting the offers page before you start planning your trip to see how much you could save. We have also gathered some popular National Express discount codes and National Express vouchers on this page.


Direct transfers to all major UK airports

Working out how to get to and from the airport can sometimes be the least exciting part of planning your holiday. Going by road often seems to be the most direct route, but if you’ve then got to factor airport parking into the equation, it can end up putting quite a dent in your holiday budget (unless you have a National Express voucher code to lower the cost).

Whether you’re flying from Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton or Stansted, National Express could be just the ticket, with direct transfers to all major UK airports running day and night. And don’t worry if you’re not the best at travelling light. National Express coaches have a generous luggage allowance of two 20kg suitcases and one item of hand luggage per person.


Easy ticket booking and delivery options

Once you’ve made your National Express booking you can choose to download your tickets and print them out at home, keep them as an e-ticket to show on your smartphone or tablet, receive your ticket via SMS or have your tickets sent to you in the post (you’ll need to allow seven days for them to arrive if you’re in the UK). If you need to change your ticket or sort out a refund, there’s an easy to use Manage My Booking section on the website, or you can call customer services seven days a week.


National Express Timetable 

Planning journeys shouldn't be difficult. The company runs coach routes all over the UK, and offers a comprehensive journey finder tool on its website. 

Just enter your journey details, and the tool will call up National Express tickets options at the time of your choosing. After that, a few clicks are needed to make the booking.


National Express Ticket Options

When customers travel with National Express bus services, a few ticket options are available. Customers can book a coach for one-way or return journeys. For a small extra fee, they can also book open returns, giving total freedom about when to head back. Options include refundable Flexible fares, and Standard options which come with supplementary fees for any changes. 

Upgrades and discounts for Flexible tickets can often be found via National Express promo codes. Finally, there's the National Express Coach Card, which delivers 33% savings for a one-year subscription fee. Again, promo codes may be available, so check before purchasing.

5 ways to make the most of your National Express cashback

Earning cashback when you travel with National Express is simple. Here are five ideas for your next booking to get you started.

1. Organize a group trip

Are you organising a weekend away with your mates? Want to treat your family to a day trip by coach? Looking for a group getaway with a decent discount? If you travel with National Express and there’s four or more of you, you’ll be able to make the most of 25% off standard. Just make sure you book at least three days in advance. And if you’re travelling at a busy time, you can reserve your seats so you can all sit together. Combine that with cashback from Quidco and you're in line for a pretty sweet deal.

2. Save extra with a Coachcard

Coachcards are a great way to get a discount on coach tickets and if you’re a regular traveller then the savings can really add up. Make the most of our cashback deals when you purchase your Coachcard too and you’ll get even more value for money. Coachcards offer a third off the usual ticket prices and there are three options available to buy: the Senior Coachcard for over 60s, the Young Persons Coachcard for those aged 16 to 26 and the Disabled Coachcard for anyone who is registered disabled. Click through to buy up to four Coachcards for one or three years. Check our terms and conditions before buying to ensure Coachcard purchases are eligible for National Express cashback.

3. Do away with airport parking hassle

Whether you’re planning to get away for a winter break or a bit of summer sun, avoid those airport parking charges by taking a coach to the airport. They run services to all the major UK airports, taking you right up to the terminal doors. There are also inter-airport services if you need to transfer from one airport to another. The luggage allowance is generous too, with two 20kg suitcases and one item of hand luggage per person. And if you’re looking for to stay overnight before or after your holiday, be sure to check out the Airport Hotel Deals section of thewebsite. Check the terms and conditions before buying, as hotel purchases may not be eligible for National Express cashback.

4. Pre-book transport to and from a big event

Six Nations rugby, the Grand National, Glastonbury festival, Cheltenham races – they’re the must-see, hot ticket events of the year. And if you want to enjoy your big day to the full, then why not pre-book your transport with National Express? The nation’s biggest coach company offers official transport for many of the UK’s biggest events and festivals with pick-ups around the UK. So take a look at the National Express Events page and give yourself the peace of mind of knowing you’ll get there on time and find your way home without a hitch.

5. Choose travel flexibility with an open return

Sometimes it’s easy to plan ahead with confidence; you know where you’re going and exactly when you’ll be back. But what happens when life doesn’t work like clockwork and you need to stay flexible? While it's usually cheapest to book National Express coach tickets for fixed dates and times, it's sometimes worth paying a little extra for an open return. And the cashback you’ll earn on making your purchase through Quidco could help offset that little extra cost. So you get the flexibility you need without putting too much of a dent in your wallet.
