How To Travel Across Scotland for £1

Yes, you heard right, how to travel across Scotland for the princely sum of £1! All will be revealed, if you read on.

What is the secret to £1 travel across Scotland? The secret is Megabus.


Of course, you shouldn’t expect luxury if you travel from one side of Scotland to the other for a quid. However, Megabus’s ‘no thrills’ budget transport service, is a saviour to the miserly, and those traveling on a tight budget. A quick review of comments on TripAdvisor, will give you a good idea of what to expect from the service.

Comments from TripAdvisor refer to the service as being:

‘Cheap and cheerful’
‘Super Cheap and safe’
‘Perfectly acceptable.’

So how do you get one of these £1 seat bargains? The secret would appear to be booking in advance via the Megabus website. A quick search for Glasgow to Edinburgh (46 miles) roughly 2 weeks in advance brought up several £1 travel fares.
