New sleeper reservation system for megabusGold
Stagecoach has launched a new bed reservation system on its megabusGold.com overnight sleepercoach routes in the UK. The new online service allows customers to reserve the kind of bed they would like – whether it is an upper bunk or a lower bunk and whether they want a bed on its own or next to a travelling companion - when booking their tickets, for no extra cost.
Under the new system, passengers travelling on overnight sleepercoach services – which have lie-flat beds – also have the option to reserve two adjacent lower bunks for single occupancy, if they would prefer more space, for an additional fee of £25.
The megabusGold.com overnight sleepercoach services between London and 11 locations in Scotland – including Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Cumbernauld, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Falkirk, Inverness and Aviemore – with one service in each direction operating seven nights a week.
“These services have been running for almost two years now and have proved to be a big hit with our customers,” says megabusGold.com managing director Edward Hodgson. “Customers travelling overnight can choose their preferred type of bed at the time of booking while anyone who wants a bit more space to sleep, can book out two lower bunks for themselves for an additional fee. We hope this will help encourage even more people to try our greener, smarter coach services.”
megabusGold.com was launched in May 2013 and operates using specially-designed Van Hool coaches which have 53 seats that convert into 41 beds. The services provide more than 1,700 lie-flat beds between Scotland and London every single week.
