            Customer Reviews


            Bus quality is too bad. Not recommended


            Much better than any travels that run buses to Karaikal!


            I paid already at online but staff ask me more money, I am totally disappointed and I never choose again RATHIMEENA


            overall bus quality is good. but staff driver is not in friendly mode.


            The driver did not stop at the designated pick up point. He was speeding away in front of our eyes. When called he says there were no pickups at ashok pillar. We had to take an auto and chase the bus to catch ( with 2 kids and luggage and at 11 PM in the night).As if this were not enough, the driver again sped without stopping at Karaikal bus stand . He was talking on the phone and did not even realize there are passengers waiting to get down


            no cleaning,all seats are damage,charger not working,they are not giving any intimation before reach the boarding point


            worst behavior by driver..pick up point is in one place but he called me to come another place without prior information


            Very comfortable seat and on time to destination


            Very comfortable seat and on time to destination


            Bus not clean. Didn't reach in time. Bus certainly not a scania.


            Bus was messy and not clean. Looks like spare bus. The ceiling is bad. Driving was finicky.


            Very poor performance by the travels ,, totally waste of money and time


            Always this Universal is keeping their punctuality as very very very worst.


            Bus broke down .delay by 6 and half hours.


            only 4 stars for punctuality coz it was supposed to reach Karaikal by 7.40 but it reached there at 9.30.. Rest perfect


            very happy & satisfied with the services of your Rathimeena Travel Bus service from Chennai to Karaikkal; very clean, neat, friendly operators in the bus. Eventhough there was a detaly in the pick-up time at Guindy due to heavy traffic jam, between Koyambedu and Guindy, stlll the bus reached the destination very safely in time without any hurdles. Really appreciate all the people involved in this .


            28 seat no legseat button not working.. rest all okay


            Bus Quality is waste.. No charger, no bedsheets, seat quality is waste.. No punctuality, worst staff behaviour.


            Please do concentrate on punctuality. Else journey was good.


            worst experience. more than a hour late without any notifications. booked sleeper but travelled in seats


            If your ticket got cancelled they will keep it.My money is stuck with Srm from 6 months


            Worst experience with universal travels. They started with 3 hours delay and no prior information. please remove this.


            traveling in seater instead of sleeper....


            bus came very late. .... because of pongal it's understable but no one at the office to inform. ... no place for sitting


            service, timing was really awesome ! next time also will book with Rathimeena simply super


            Overall it was good one


            no punctuality,no cleanses, got warning from RTO to stop vehicle and were switched to semi-sleeper from sleeper..many


            Bus was maintained well. But reached the destination very late. The trip was a pleasant one.


            Please look into the quality of the bus and there's no window screen on seaters which needs attention.


            good service and punctuality


            It took 7 hours to reach. not 5 and half hours. bus is too noisy.


            This bus does not have a Insurance and tax paid, yesterday the bus caught by RTO near Gundy bus stop , RTO asked the driver to get all the passengers down , since it does not have a proper document, we struggled almost 2 hours waited in road. Finally I went to police station and complained about this matter , some how the Police officer convinced RTO to allow the bus to travel , there is no one from Univercel side to take responsibilities no passenger safety here. No proper response from Management side. Really I felt bad this time. Worst ...


            This was the worst experience I have ever had in my life. My boarding time was 11.58 pm. I was at the boarding point at 11.40 pm. I waited for the bus till 2 am but the bus didn't come. I tried calling the bus operators but to my horror they didn't pick up the call and later on they switched off the phone. Finally after waiting for around two and a half hour I got the tickets cancelled and had to return to my home. There were 2 other people waiting for the same bus but the bus never arrived. Nothing can be more horrifying than standing on road at 2 o'clock at night.


            worst experience ...... both in bus quality and standards and the communication... with the redbus crew


            its AC volvo, they didn't give blanket


            I can't able to push my seat back .. it wasnt working .. ??


            Bus operator left me without picking me from boarding point.


            My first private bus travelling experience was very good. Hope it'll continue


            Normal Service. Have to improve some more in interiors. Thanks a lot to driver for his safety drive.


            Timing is punctual for both pick up and drop, Travel is good but little Engne noisy on drive.


            I am feeling Happy journey services all so good.??????


            Good travelling and timing also good.


            Seats are not in good condition.


            one of the best Non Ac Seater I had travelled. It was so clean. The seats were very much comfortable than other buses.


            Bus Quality Was ok. Not So Good , because Bus Seat Was not comfortable foot space also very low. Kindly improve our Bus


            I booked a different bus,but they sent a different one that too in a delay of one hour.


            vibration is serious issue - I felt tired after the journey - the next day I had to take sleep for 4 hours during the day time


            A/C was not working properly.


            Worst Bus Travels not yet ever before... universal bus travels not worth for that cost.. Government buses are good in punctuality that this Bus.....


            bus seats are clean and neat .bus came being on time.
