Friends Go Free on Bus Éireann Expressway Services

Friends can go for free on Bus Éireann Expressway inter-city coach services from 15th April to 2nd May 2013 inclusive when customers avail of a great new on-line offer from Bus Éireann.

With the Bus Éireann 2 for 1 promotion, customers who purchase an Adult Standard Monthly Return ticket for an Expressway service on-line using the promo code FRIEND will receive a voucher giving the holder free return travel on the same service.

“Getting to great destinations around the country has never been easier with Expressway and now you can bring along a friend for all the fun for free,” said Andrew McLindon, PR & Media Manger, Bus Éireann.

Bus Éireann’s network of 28 Expressway inter-city coach services link every major town and city in the country making it the quickest and best value way to get to an unrivalled number of destinations. Over half of Expressway coaches have free Wi-Fi and last year the company introduced 28 new Expressway coaches to its fleet featuring free Wi-Fi, power sockets and extra comfort seating.

2 for 1 tickets will go on-sale from April 15th 2013.

2 for 1 tickets have limited availability and may sell-out before May 2nd 2013 so customers are advised to get on to their friends and family quickly to plan whether they might head to Cork for the craic or Galway for the great food or Sligo for the scenery.

Bus Éireann is helping friends plan their trip with a Facebook app that enables customers to ask their Facebook friends whether they want to come with them on a particular Expressway journey.

Under the terms of the offer, customers must travel together on the same service. The original purchased ticket and the voucher must be presented together to the driver when boarding an Expressway service. The outward leg of the journey must be taken by May 2nd 2013.

Full details on how to avail of the offer and all terms and conditions for this offer will be available on
