From July 2018 passengers will also have the opportunity to travel in a National Express coach sporting each of the seven colourful, unique, quirky and lovable characters from the show.

“We are delighted to announce the superb addition of Oddbods to the VUER content stable to ensure that journeys on our coaches even more enjoyable than ever before,” added Charlie Bailey, national partnerships manager at National Express Coaches.

The one-year deal begins in February 2018 and will see Oddbods featured in various promotional content formats from National Express including print, social media and VUER app integration.
