From London to Edinburgh was not too good. We were delayed by 20min after which we got on a bus not branded. Seemed the 420 was not on time. At Birmingham however we got a beautiful NatExp bus with an awesome bus driver

First of all. The busdriver took a 20 min break after only 1,5 hour drive. We were 55 min after schedule, and we missed our busconnection to Heatrow AirPort. So we had to stress, running to the nearest underground and so on. Not the way we wanted to end out trip! The busdriver didn't inform us either about the driving conditions in London center. It was awfull!

The first bus left on time and was comfortable and quick, so we arrived at Gatwick early. It was not clear that we had to change buses - we had to ask. We were then told that the next bus had no oil, so we had to wait until a decision was made and then suddenly told to hurry onto the bus to Heathrow. Once at Heathrow Terminal 1it was a shambles - we were not told whether to stay on the bus or to get off. When we asked the driver he grunted impatiently. Then when we arrived at Terminal 2 (our destination) it wasn't clear where we were and the driver made no attempt to tell us and just dumped all the baggage on the wet ground. There was no apology for late arrival and no communication generally.
Busbud is a bus search tool - we include National Express routes, schedules and prices in our searches along with many other bus companies. You can compare prices, amenities and times by searching for a route. If you find a suitable trip, you can go ahead and get your National Express ticket from us. Note that buses sell out, National Express and other operators generally charge a lot more for last minute tickets or for tickets bought in person.
