Megabus.com

Has anyone any experience of a company 'similar' to National Express (NE) called 'Megabus' https://uk.megabus.com/.

Or maybe it might even be helpful to someone.
Although I did a couple of dummy searches last night but found it not as helpful as I would of liked especially for early hours of the morning airport journey's.

But prices 'at least from Birmingham are a lot cheaper than NE although not much good being cheaper if you cant get direct to the airport.

I thought OF with all the money you keep posting you are making on the back of the dire straights of the Turkish economy... ref Lira exchange.. and the properties you tell us you are buying on the Lira thread... you could at least afford a taxi...rather than some cheap bus... scrooge ha ha LOL ....

Re: Megabus.com

No way am I giving any of my cash to some to-rag of a taxi driver, it' bad enough having to pay one of them for a taxi to the coach station, but at around 6am there isnt much option and as I usually go out for a couple of months each time then park and rise is also out f the question.

And yes I do have a few bob and intend hanging on to it for as long as possible.

No chance at least not the taxi drivers here in Birmingham. I wouldn't give them the drippings of my nose.

Very true but sometimes arranging ones own affairs can be very rewarding especially when not having to rely on friends especially when it means getting them out of bed in the early hours of the morning as most of my flights tend to be in the early hours, plus it would also means them taking a day of work.

Usually Birmingham to Stansted airport, but occasionally also to Bristol airport, so as you can imagine a taxi fare to either point would not be very economical.

Although I live fairly close to Birmingham airport even to there it's about 30. (or at least that's what I paid the last time.
But flights to Bodrum or Izmir are not very forthcoming.

Re: Megabus.com

See what you mean, we use the train where possible, just got quoted 33 return Motherwell to Manchester at short notice, which is reasonable.
Works for us as that train goes into manc airport.
