National Express coaches are a common sight throughout the UK as they transport residents to the airport, seaside resorts or other areas of interest. If you have not yet used National Express to get around the UK, what special perks should you expect?
National Express always guarantees ample seating for passengers who have pre-booked. You do not have to worry about coaches overbooking seats and then having to worry about whether you will be asked to give up your seat when you board the coach. Once you have booked your seat, you can rest assured that you will not be cramped for space or asked to give up your seat.
National Express coaches deliver top-notch travel by providing prompt, reliable service that caters to all, both young and old. The last time I used National Express to get to London-Gatwick airport, I waited at the bus station for my coach to arrive. Instead of being picked up by National Express, I learned that my National Express coach had broken down en route.
Rather than miss my scheduled flight, National Express ordered a taxi to come pick me up free of charge at my scheduled departure time and take me to the next stop, which then allowed me to catch my connecting National Express coach on to London-Gatwick. This impressed upon me that National Express is a reliable company that goes out of its way to accommodate its passengers, rather than leave them stranded.
