1000s of fares from £5

We're committed to always finding you the lowest fares possible to where you want to go.
We've decided to make this as simple and easy as possible with our Low Fare Finder, which displays all of our FunFare tickets - our lowest fares are only available online.

FunFare tickets are available to book in advance to hundreds of towns, cities and airports across the UK.
We also offer great-value coach travel to Europe with our sister company Eurolines.

These bargain fares are limited online exclusives, so if you see a fare you like the look of, then book it straight away because once they're gone, they're gone.

Hurry – when they’re gone, they’re gone!!!

City breaks continue to be an affordable treat with National Express.
Treat yourself to a city break that won’t break the bank with one-way fares starting from as little as £19 to Paris or £18 to Amsterdam, or head off to Brussels from just £24.
With great value fares, comfortable coaches, two medium suitcases free luggage and free Wi-Fi on selected services, all that’s left for you to do is sit back and relax.
