I know I can simply say See you/Bye, etc., but I wonder if it sounds natural to say You too in response to See you.

    i don't think so. It is natural to reply 'See you'/'See you later'. 'You too' sounds natural in response to 'have a good week-end' and similar. – tum_ Jul 1 '16 at 7:13
  • You have established the "see you later" in your conversation, so there is no need to repeat it. I would just say "bye" or "later". To me "You too" sounds corny when someone says it. – user3169 Jul 1 '16 at 18:59
  • I either respond to this with a simple 'ya!' or 'sure'. – Vaishnavi Rai Mar 13 '18 at 8:57

Responding to

See you
See you soon
See you later


You too (AmE)
And you (BrE)

would be understood. It's not usually used in that way by native speakers, but is used to respond to something like

Have a nice day!
Stay cool! (during the summer heat)

to mean "you also".

  • So, what is(are) usually used? – Cardinal Jul 1 '16 at 8:25
