For the same reason, booking well in advance of travel dates is recommended. Each Megabus route only offers a small number of seats for the lowest cost of $1 as of 2015. Prices increase according to how many tickets have been sold, so booking tickets a few months in advance is ideal. Average ticket prices are around $20.

As the ticket prices fluctuate considerably on the same route, flexibility with dates is also important for finding the lowest-priced seats. Another thing to keep in mind is that tickets are often at their lowest price mid-week, so avoiding travel at peak times such as on the weekend is wise.

If booking well in advance and flexibility are not possible, a final tip is to check the Megabus website for promotions. Often, Megabus offers special deals on tickets, particularly at off-peak times.
