The bus ride was fine and the bus being late was beneficial for me as my flight was delayed. I thought I had missed the bus but thankfully not.

Margaret B.6 November 2018 | 

Sound advice. Good journey.

Joris D.29 August 2018 | 

Very little space, no legroom and narrow seat. I am tall but fairly normal weight. Very uncomfortable!

John L.16 August 2018 | 

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been on a National Express coach journey of such a length and I was delighted to find it to be such a simple and straightforward experience. Good seats, good communication from the driver, WiFi and air conditioning (although this switched off in the last stretch of the journey). All in all, a good experience!

Philippa H.9 August 2018 | 

Great service , excellent driver, not very comfortable and disappointed mobile phones were allowed. Very disturbing.

I was delayed and as a result I missed an important appointment in Plymouth with attendant huge financial lost.

Dominic C.15 June 2018 | 

late to depart and late to arrive!

Carol C.5 June 2018 | 

It was a late pick up but they did make up time so we arrived according to the schedule. The seats are hard and very little leg room.

Peter S.26 May 2018 | 

Not enough leg room.

Booked from Australia. Worked like clockwork. Would thoroughly recommend.

Christopher H.10 April 2017 | 

the bus was delayed by 90 mins but simply due to traffic. The drivers remained cheerful despite the frustrations. Well done. It was a bit hot on the bus though n

Stephen A.7 July 2016 | 

overall a good experience, but I had no clear instructions on the paper ticket how to get from Terminal 5 to the Central Bus station. I looked on the posts along bus stands 13,14,15 and it was not clear. I asked 2 bus drivers at stand 12 & 10 and they did not know and said that I have to go back inside terminal 5 and to the National Express ticket area. The automatic ticket places did not have the info. Then I waited in line to see a person and they finally could tell me that I should go to 13,14,15 but that it is the airport's fault not National Expresses fault that it is not clearly marked! . I almost missed my bus because of the delays due to this poor communication but did have a good trip eventually.
