Flight tickets during the holiday season are pricey and it can be a hassle getting around in the airports during the holidays. Reports have been all over the news about the staggering airline ticket costs this year. The New York Times had one article in particular that came out early this fall about the sharp jump in holiday ticket prices that seems to grow exponentially as the winter holidays near. Fortunately for those of us traveling along the northeast, midwest and Canada, Megabus offers a much cheaper travel alternative. As part of their “Winter Getaway” they are giving away 100,000 seats, FREE! Just enter the promotion code GETAWAY, check out megabus.com for more details.
Megabus is a low-cost bus service that has been in buisness since 2006. It started in the UK. For quite a while I had heard about it by word of mouth and I decided to try it a few months ago on a trip to from Syracuse, NY to New York City. I snagged a ticket for $5 one-way, a round-trip flight would have cost me around $200 and thats $31 less than I would have paid for another coach service like Greyhound and it was actually more comfortable. I enjoyed the fact that it was a double -decker coach bus because I was able to enjoy the view from the upper level. The only problem I found was that most of the deals were offered for bus schedules with odd hours, there are no outlets like Boltbus and the free wi-fi they advertise does not offer that strong a connection.
