Megabus and Innkeeper’s Collection anticipate staycation surge

Intercity coach operator Megabus has partnered with hotel chain Innkeeper’s Collection to help meet demand for an anticipated surge in UK “staycations” this summer.

It comes after Megabus launched a new summer campaign titled From A to whoever you want to Be, which hopes to inspire customers to use Megabus to achieve their aspirations.

The partnership will see customers given the chance to win Megabus weekly giveaways that include an overnight stay at one of the hotel chain’s 50 or so locations, plus a meal voucher.

Every customer who travels with Megabus this summer will also receive a 15% discount code off any hotel booking in the Innkeeper’s Collection.

“It’s great to be working in partnership with Innkeeper’s Collection, part of the Mitchells and Butlers group, to be able to offer our customers hotel stays at great value prices,” says Mark Venables, Managing Director for Megabus in the UK. “This demonstrates the travel benefit of brands getting together to offer customers fantastic UK staycations. With great value travel and hotel accommodation for friends, families, and colleagues – this is the perfect partnership for UK city breaks.”
