megabus.com has launched a new German language website to make it easier for people in Europe to book its new cross-Channel services between London and Cologne.

European passengers who visit www.megabus.com can now access a German language website as well as English, French and Dutch language sites. The new German website also trades in Euros, making it even easier for passengers from Europe to grab a bargain coach ticket.

Last month, Perth-based Stagecoach Group began operating low-cost coach services from the UK to Germany for the first time.  The new London to Cologne service, which also serves Ghent and Brussels in Belgium, operates twice a day in each direction, with journey times from nine and a half hours.

Managing Director of Stagecoach’s UK Coach division, Elizabeth Esnouf said: “Our services to Cologne are already proving popular and we’re pleased to launch this German language website to make it easier for our German customers to book their tickets.

“We now operate a comprehensive coach network between the UK and Europe, offering people the chance to travel extensively at very affordable prices and we look forward to attracting more and more people on to our greener, smarter coach services.”

megabus.com launched its European network in April 2012, offering journeys between the UK and Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels and Boulogne.
