    We finally managed to visit London and Stonehenge this autumn after so many restrictions. It was a lovely time, we travel in comfort and our driver was really helpful.
    Can't wait to be back!

    Thank you so much for your fantastic service! From beginning to end you were quick off the mark to come back to me and really friendly when answering all my questions. You were bang on time from picking us up to dropping us off and then picking us up again! And your team was so friendly on the day, chatting away to our guests. Your tour around London before the venue was superb and got us there exactly as planned. Thank you so much. We would highly recommend you as would our guests.

    I travelled with a large group last week. Never saw the crowds so large as flights delayed everywhere. I really appreciated the plug points located all around the seating area, so you could charge your phone. I had the pizza, great value, tasted good and very quick. It was great to get a break from the madness of the terminal.

    We booked a return journey from Aberdeen to Edinburgh on the Megabus Gold, down one day back the next day. The bus going down was in a shocking condition and certainly not a Gold standard for sure. Just a normal bus, no seat tray, heating never worked the whole journey and it was freezing, WiFi didn’t work, no USB sockets and I lost count how many times the driver had to stop between Dundee and Edinburgh to close the bus door.
    The return journey was in a proper Megabus Gold bus and had everything it should have - like chalk and cheese the difference between both buses.
    If I didn’t have a concession ticket I would have been looking for a refund on the first journey.

    I've never used Coachscanner before and whilst it took a little while to get the information about the coach company, on the day everything went to plan. The coach we had was fantastic- very high standard, arrived promptly and the driver was superb. A great day out was had by all. Thanks very much.

    This bus literally stops 2 min. from the Doubletree Westminster and takes you to Oxford Circus via some of the most historic sites in the London. Not only is it convenient....bypassing the need to take the tube from Pimlico or Westminster, it is half the price and serves as a tour bus. Taking the 88 is easy, frequent and fun. Coming back is also easy from Oxford Circus or Regent St.

    Our trip from the airport til Victoria coach station went by with no problems. It was when we were returning to Stansted that we had problems, the web page was down and the ticket machines were also out of order and the staff that we talked was really rude and not service minded at all or helpful.
    So for all the traveller's, buy your retur ticket right away.

    Whilst it was a stressful experience, the staff were helpful and friendly. The problem I had was with wheelchair accessibility. I had given the staff my wheelchair measurements before I went and they assured me it would fit on the coach with no issues. However, once the lift had got me onto the coach, the driver struggled to get me round the corner because the wheels were too wide. In the end he managed and credit to him, he never complained once about the weight of my chair, and he wasn't exactly young! We then had issues getting the wheelchair secured, because once again the wheels were too wide, but after an embarrasing 5 minute struggle (whilst all the passengers stared silently), I was secured. The seatbelt was twisted about 20-30 times and took ages to untwist before I could use it, and even then I had to use it with twists in it which wasn't safe and made it painfully tight for the 4 hour journey. When I arrived, it took 15 minutes to get my chair off the coach because the ratchet lever at the back of the securing mechanism wouldn't release, and the driver in the end had to hit it with a metal pole until it came loose and released my wheelchair...

    Overall a very stressful experience...but the driver was a star and was probably just as flustered as a was, and the whole time he was friendly and professional so I thank him for that. It's just a shame about the issues with the coach accessibility and more to the point, the staff who had assured me my wheelchair was within the correct measurements when clearly it can't have been. I would not recommend this service for wheelchair users.

    We didn't print our ticket and they didn't let us travel!We instisted on the fact that we will lose our flight and that we had it on pdf verison that we showed although they denied..they told us to print it inside the station and when we returned later to pay another one, they told us it was full then!I wasnt offensed by all these,but the behaviour was so arrogant and so far from explaining and being polite to people who do not know where to go!

    Only rating 1* because their isn't a -10*!!!!

    Absolutely vile and disgusting company who are clearly just after people's money and have NO intention of delivering a service.

    Turned up th DAY before our date we booked claiming it was "my fault" because I booked the bus for MIDNIGHT of the 6th and these idiots read that to be MIDNIGHT of the 5th! How anyone can make that mistake I have no idea! (This is also AFTER I received a phonecall the day before my wedding to state the vehicles I had booked had "mechanical faults" and they could issue another bus but an extra fee would be requested!!!! It was the day before my wedding i had no choice!!!!

    The morning of my wedding was spent back and forth on emails (they wouldn't supply a contact number! Of course!!) Trying to get them to send another bus because they sent it on the wrong night!! They still claimed this was my fault and could send another bus AT ANOTHER COST!!! (I reiterate.....it was my wedding day I had no choice!)

    It gets worse.......the evening came and the bus arrives.....I'm surprised it even made it out their yard! I wouldn't put it past them that this vehicle was not safe to be road worthy....AND it breaks down!! Doesn't even get it out the venue car park!!! My father in law, on the evening of his sons wedding, spends carting this driver back to their yard to "get another bus" but by this point my venue had arranged taxis for everyone. I am currently speaking with trading standards about how to retrieve my money back because they clearly had no intention of delivering this service, they ROBBED me of a LOT of money and lastly, ruined my day!!!

    PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!
