Latest travel information from National Express & Megabus, due to the civil disturbances

Posted in Industry news

Due to the current difficult situation in the UK, coach carriers were forced to make some changes.

As of 0400, all National Express coach stations and coach services are operating as normal around the UK. All locations that were closed (Leicester, Manchester, Birmingham and Wolverhampton) have reopened.

For up to date travel information within the London area, please visit the Transport for London website.

National Express will offer free amendments to any journeys cancelled or stops not served as a result of the disturbances and they will honour this for up to 14 days from Monday 8 August. Due to these changes, they are experiencing an increase in call volumes to our Customer Service Centre and it might take us a little longer to deal with these enquiries.

Unfortunately, due to the civil disturbances in the London area the FA have cancelled this event.  

If you have already booked a journey to see the game National Express will offer free amendments or refunds if you wish to cancel your ticket and will not be taking any further bookings for this event.
