Staff got angry for me because I said my arrival place is London. Actually my arrival place is Golder something, but in the itinerary and ticket was written in London (golder something...), so I said "London". They got so angry for me. I just said as Ticket shows. I felt so bad.

The bus broke down. There was no air conditioning. Someone passed out and the other driver refused to take our small flight case so we had to abandon it!

Lila M.May 14, 2019 | 

The bus are not comfortable at all ( assuming that I took a night bus service , I expected a little more comfort ). I couldn’t lay down my seat not even a few cm ( it was broken), the power plug wasn’t working , the staff were extremely rude with other passengers and arrive late because the staff and another passenger start to argue .

The curtain and USB port were both broken on the bus, however the bus was on time which was great

We tried to change the ticket dates on line, failed, and then travelled to London by train

Lauren F.August 28, 2018 | 

The bus didn't have any plugs, so there was no way of charging anything, which made the 11 hour bus extremely dull. Also I am now covered in tiny bites from something that I didn't have before I boarded, so even though it's cheap, I wouldn't do it again as it seems it had fleas

Was a good trip. But the wifi not exist. Please find a solution. Is important for the travelers. Thanks

The bus trip was great and I can’t believe how cheap it was to get from Edinburgh to London. The drivers were very nice and helpful and the two drivers we had for the second half of the trip had a bit of tension to contend with with passengers talking loudly on their mobiles and one girl constantly using her mobile and driving one man to yell at her. The driver handled these situations very well.

Coach journey excellent but let down by conditions at Victoria bus station. It was like going back in time (looked the same as when I travelled there 50 years ago.) Squalid, hot , dirty, crowded, no where to sit. London should be ashamed of itself. It was a pleasure to get on the coach !!!

John K.December 24, 2017 | 

The timing was punctual, the drivers were first class and the coach was clean and tidy

Siew Peow L.October 18, 2017 | 

Very satisfied that there are total 3 drivers for the total trip from Edinburgh to London. Felt very safe to travel onboard the overnite bus. The drivers are careful n professional.

The National Express did not provide the bus service that I had booked including other 17 people. It was the worst experience I had ever had in various countries. Poor UK system.

Harriet E.June 20, 2017 | 

The ticket said I'd be in Golders Green at 7:10pm. We didn't get there until 8:10pm. ???the one hour stop for refreshments???
