Free Travel For Everyone

Free Travel For Everyone

A completely free return trip from Brum to Bristol, Leicester, Oxford, Worcester or London

A bit like Oprah Winfrey giving every member of her audience a car, only much, much better for the environment, we're giving all 18,000 of you a completely free return coach journey courtesy of Snap. And one of you will win free journeys with them for a year.

A new method of travel (well, technically an old method, but with a completely new thinking) Snap lands squarely in that sweet spot where convenience meets price and price meets comfort and they all hit it off and exchange numbers. They're currently running trips from Brum to Bristol, Leicester, Oxford, Worcester and the nation's second city, London, with plenty more destinations set to open. Here's how the hell the whole thing works. Frankly, it's absurdly clever and yet incredibly simple.  

CONVENIENCE

  • The Snap guys are brilliant nerds. We know because we've met them. They use tech to predict when people want to make trips, so the most popular departure times are already on the system, before you even ask for them. 
  • They use tech to tell you when you’re likely to get to your destination, and they show you a real-time map of where your coach is.
  • They've done away with ticket machines and barriers. You don’t need a ticket, or an app, or even a barcode. Just tell the driver your name.
  • They have a team of real people who you can talk to on the phone and chat with on Facebook messenger. There’s no call centre, they’re sat right with the directors and the operations and tech team. They can't hide!
  • They place pickups and drop offs where they’re most convenient. Moseley Village, Selly Oak, Bournville to name just a few of the London-bound spots. You don't have to traipse to Digbeth Coach Station anymore. 

PRICE

  • The same tech gives you low prices, even at popular times, when other companies try and charge the most. How? Well they only put on exactly the right number of coaches needed, when they're needed, so you're only paying for the seat you're using, not the dozens of empty seats around you.  
  • Coaches are cost effective to run — and Snap passes on that saving to the customer. Ker-ching! 
  • Coaches have the lowest carbon footprint of any form of motorised intercity transport, so it's cost effective for Old Mother Earth, too. 
  • Snap offer a price match guarantee - if you find a cheaper fare on an equivalent trip, they'll refund you the difference, no questions asked.

COMFORT

  • They use technology to learn which drivers and coaches you like the best, so they can make sure you get them more often.
  • The coaches are ace. They’re owned by independent, private-hire companies who usually do luxury tours and exclusive bookings for executive groups.
  • Most have plug sockets and WiFi; an increasing number have table seats, so you can work. They even have some Premier League football team coaches.
  • They use an algorithm driven by your ratings to offer new trips only to the best performing operators and drivers are incentivised to be friendly and helpful. So everyone's doing their best to make the journey smooth, so they can get more journeys sent their way. (T&C below)
