FunFare UK Low Cost Bus Service
National Express began operating its FunFare tariff in advance of the arrival of the UK's first no-frills bus services. NX FunFare covers more towns and cities in England than megabus but it does not have a Scottish network.
NX FunFare is currently the only low cost bus service which connects Newcastle to London. It is also the only low cost network to operate routes from Nottingham, Cambridge and Norwich to London and from Liverpool and Birmingham to Manchester.
How much does it cost
to travel on FunFare?
FunFare routes can only be booked in advance over the internet.
The cheapest FunFare singles are available online for £1 - a fraction cheaper than megabus because FunFare does not require a 50p booking fee. As the seats are booked, the price of available seats rises in small increments depending on the route.
More expensive FunFare singles to destinations in the south of England may be available for £2, £3 or £5 whereas if you miss out on the £1 seats on the London to Glasgow route, you may be looking at £5, £8 or even as much as £10-12 for the journey.
