National Express helps get students home for Christmas

Amazon launches the biggest ever Prime Student travel deal to get thousands of students home to loved ones this festive season for as little as £2, with 75% off 5,000 National Express coach fares.

Christmas has come early for students travelling this festive season. National Express and Amazon have teamed up to announce 75% off 5,000 coach fares.

The launch comes as new Amazon research reveals that 21% of students are struggling to afford to travel home this Christmas, and 75% say they’ve already had to cut back on trips home in the last 12 months. The 75% discount means that 5,000 coach seats will be up for grabs from £2 one way, with the nation’s favourite ‘coach’ Harry Redknapp fronting the campaign.
