Stagecoach Group-owned budget scheduled coach operator megabus.com is offering 20,000 free seats on its coach networks across the UK for travel between January 9 and February 9, in a move described by the operator as “a huge giveaway.”

Megabus said the free seats are available for travel every day of the week during the promotional period and can be booked by visiting www.megabus.com.

“There will be free seats available on every single megabus.com journey during the promotional period,” stressed Managing Director of megabus.com Edward Hodgson.

“The first tickets are available now. Thereafter, tickets will be made available around 60 days in advance of travel, allowing passengers new opportunities every day to get their hands on a free ticket. This is a great chance for our passengers to grab even more of a bargain and beat the winter blues. We would advise passengers to book quickly to take advantage of this special offer.”

megabus.com offers fares from £1 (plus 50p booking fee) and operates to more than 90 destinations across England, Wales and Scotland.
