              Customer Reviews


              We had booked for a seater bus. Instead got a sleeper bus. Also we didn't get the seats together the way we had booked. Moreover my friend was sleeping on one of the separated seats. She was woken up by the staff of the bus and told to vacate. Even though that seat belonged to us. Only good thing was that the bus had arrived before time. Overall bad experience.


              Bus changed to full sleeper but we were expecting sitting


              What reviews a bus deserve which drop u off 18 km of ur stop at 3 am in night with u luggage missing also..worst ever experience.


              The Bus did NOT arrive. It had a breakdown, I received a call to that effect. I had to find my own way /bus to Pondicherry. Hope atleast my refund arrives


              My Ticket No TK3S47354494 , I have a booked Ac bus thru universal Travels but there is no AC . Its a cheating Travels n


              Without any prior notice, the bus got cancelled. I received a call for cancellation when I was proceeding to the bus stop from airport . No alternate arrangement was done by Universal, the bus provider. It caused me immense problem to avail alternative arrangement to go to Pondicherry. I have not received any refund from redbus.


              Didn't even contact, and we were waiting on the road, phone switched off


              The bus experience was very nice. The seats are comfortable. The staff provided us with water bottle as soon as we get in. The bus was stopped at a nice place for breakfast as well. Overall it's a "feel good" travel.


              It was an awful experience. While booking on the app, I was shown the layout of a bus with 1+2 seating, but when I actually. Larded the bus it was a normal 2+2 seater. Plenty of mosquitoes for company. The bus started at 8.45 pm and till 11.45 pm was moving all over chennai between koyambedu, Saidapet, tiruvanmiyur, Chromepet and Tambaram and finally took OMR and reached ECR after almost 3 hours. I had been charged 450 for the seat, while other passengers had been charged only 300 for going beyond to Kumbakonam and Pattukkotai. I don't understand why I had to pay a premium for such a dismal experience


              timely pick up and reached the destination on time


              Boarding delay by 1hr 15 mins


              They show a bus n collect bookings. N then next day they say the bus broke down & put some other bus. I wonder if this is a daily phenomenon. Redbus is just not tracking any if this. There is no penalty to the operator or compensation to the passengers for change in bus or unexplainable delays.. I think thats the way forward to increase your credibility.


              Bus was very late and they stop at every boarding point for five minutes to selling seats which are not fulled, reached one hour late....Staff gave my seats to somebody and finally i travelled with driver which means the seat next to him


              Two issues: 1) the bus departed late, (to be avoided as it is almost midnight), however reached destination ahead. 2) the contact no (landline) mostly busy, unable to connect.

              very bad , they dont drop me at Pondicherry , they drop me at Koliidam , The Pondicherry is near about 100 km far


              Bus was 2 and Half hours late, no coordination and help from Redbus, this was my last travel through redbus


              very worst experience.the bus started 1 hour late.After that they changed the bus.they gave seater for berth.horrible


              0 is the real rating for this . Worst travel experience. The bus was over an hour late. They provided us a different bus and made us switch to another bus midway. The bus was not clean , seats were not as mentioned i.e. 2+2 instead of 2+1 . Would never travel in universal travels anymore.


              When I booked the ticket, withiout ticketing bank payment is executed. So double time debitde from my bank account. And bus starting time is delayed over 1 hour. We took spare bus in the middle of going. A lot of unconveniences occured. Also return ticket price is so high. When I booked it was 800inr but one day later it is downed to 500inr. I dont understand why that thing happened. How can I refund what i paid double time. Please help me.


              Worst experience, Bus hardly late for 1 Hour, and no proper response from staff


              Instead of Scania, a Volvo was operated


              very worst punctuality I have ever seen in my travel.


              I was made to wait for 2 hours, called them for 30 times. finally they said, bus left


              Bus was one hour late without prior notification.


              First of all they came 1hr late from the mentioned time.driver behaviour was worst..totally waste never book this bus


              The bus never came and the travels couldn't be contacted either as no one attended the call.


              wrost experience every of my life,the bus broke down nearly after 50 Km and I waited nearly for 3 hours in middle ofroad


              The staff was good & reached pondicherry before arrival time


              Not at all punctual. They started late from source station itself. Bus was full of mosquitoes.


              I paid for AC bus but got a non-ac and it dropped to the destination around one and half hour late. overall pathetic.


              worst experience ever we still on the way may be we will reach by 12.30pm instead of 10.30. I don't even fill to give 1.


              luxury at affordable price..good gesture..kudos for the maintenance and staffs


              The bus was punctual but not a pleasant behavior by the attending staff. Quality of A/C was bad. For the price charged the quality of service was bad.


              If anyone traveling for any urgency don't choose this bus operator. I can rate 0 for punctuality. They not even informed us about the delay.


              Couple of mosquitoes kept me awake. Apart from that, everything was fantastic. Staff were so friendly.


              cost is high compare to govt a/c volo Bus .


              Top notch.... Perfect value for money travel...


              the bus was on time but the staff knows only one language and at Pondicherry pickup point there no one to guide..


              worst travel.depature point they dropped me someplace I didn't booked


              No bus number information. People are disconnecting when we call to ask for address. Things have to improve to serve other state tourists


              Worth for money they provide bread and jam for breakfast and water. Asking passengers individually where we should get down and stops the bus.


              We booked Volvo ac sleeper coach but bus has been changed to Volvo ac semi sleeper . We require refund for it


              Overall good experience and safe to travel being a lady.


              This bus is very neat and clean. It has arrived 45 minutes late @ 7:15 AM due to heavy rain fall in Chennai. Taken to pondicherry by 9:30 AM with 30 minutes break in between for breakfast.


              Overall it was ok. Couldnt say the bus was clean but it was on time and start was helpful.


              The bus was fine. But there were noisy co-passengers.


              Excellent service.. Me and my friend loved it so much :)


              It was a great travel indeed.. Bus was on time and we were given breakfast which is very much appreciated. My wishes for your future endeavour.


              really good and value for money journey, everything was on time ! there was no need of ac as weather is good in November
