Just like seats on a plane, all seats on megabus.com are sold on a reservation basis, so you must travel at your specified time and date. For journeys within the UK, customers are required to be at their departure point at least 15 minutes before their selected journey is scheduled to depart. No refunds or credits will be given in cases where customers have missed the coach,but you can change your reservation on our website right up until 24 hours prior to travel.

This service is operated by Journey call Ltd. Calls cost 65p per minute network access and and call charges may apply. Please check with your telecoms provider.
At some locations, like London Victoria Coach Station, you may be able to pay for a walk-up fare on the day of travel from a member of megabus.com staff.
