          in the middle of the journey they switch off the ac very irritating.never book this agin


          The last row seats are congested . Other things on the bus were excellent .


          Feb 11 travelled from Pondicherry and bus reached punctual time. Only the problem is bus quality engine sound too noisy.


          The bus departure and arrival were on time. I booked a reclining seat and it was comfortable. The only complaint was that in the amenities blanket was listed but I was not provided with any. I had a jacket with me, so I managed with that. Overall, I had a good experience.


          Good at punctuality/Lot of room for foot rest/Water Bottles,blanket were provided but lights were ON for a long time.


          We were not informed that the first leg of the journey (till Villupuram) will be in a tempo traveller, and that we would have to change vehicles in the middle of the night! Not cool! Important that RedBus and the Bus operator mentions this clearly at the time of purchasing the ticket. Also, the bus arrived at Madurai at 0200am (instead of 0400am as published), and we were not woken up. We ended up in Thirunelvelli, and had to take another 3-hour bus back to Madurai.


          staffs are good. Nice to travel


          Worst staff behaviour.I have ever seen these kind of staffs!They were disrespectful.


          Very good journey.... Nice experience... Well maintained timings for departure & Reaching


          I travelled 1st in time APS TRAVELS.The bus is kept cleaned.The bus is shaked too much.But 500 is worth for sleeper


          No one helped me with my luggage. I almost fell crossing the road with it.


          Worst in punctuality. Compare to all other buses from pondy to madurai this is the worst travel i have ever had


          Pls give a small water bottle as complement . Outstanding punctuality..


          over all excellent, I am frequent user,happy


          Traveling time all are ok but depature time is he's not maintain


          bus is not maintaining time ,driving very slowly till villupuram ,bus is waiting more than 1/2 hour in villupuram


          My trip is fine.but your bus fare is difference between last thursday and this week.last week sleeper charge is rs.500_and this week rs.600.


          staf behaviour is very worst.They dont know how to behave with the passengers


          This was never happened in the past.Particularly in this Vaigai. I informed in Pondicherry itself that I should get down at Madutai KK Nagar Arch. When I was got up on my own, I was at Periar Bus Stand. If I would have slept I might be at Sivakasi. There was only the Driver available, no Helper / Conductor to take care of us, at this old age. Even tomorrow I am going by Vaigai. Ask them to be more careful, otherwise I have to take different decision.


          Reporting time was 9.15 pm on 3rd may 2015, but the bus was late and came 10pm, more over sleeper berth are nor clean, too much of sand particles, and the driver was not looking after the speed breakers, many old female passengers found difficult to travel even in lower berth, some how its been good to reach the destination without any big problems. Trust is there with Sharma@vaigai Travels, need to improve their quality in providing better lower berths and upper berth seat quality.Thanks & Regards Ravi Shankar G


          Worst- driver-playing with mobile while driving of Lucky travels - pondicherry to Madurai. 23.04.2016, 10.30pm.


          Rathimeena should mention the departureplace more detailled. Even better to have a Map on Redbus before.


          Clean and Neat, and about timing, came at right time (while boarding) and reached earlier (while reaching destination) also one of the staff enquired all passengers drop off point individually and noted it down, which is unusual and I'm surprised. Overall the Journey in Vaigai travels (Sharma Travels) was a clean and Neat trip for me on March 20/2016. Thanks and Regards Ravi Shankar G


          The sleeping position not convenient also height was very low...even though I am normal height person... Please consider this...otherwise your service was awesome... Thanks...


          Bus quality was good and staff behavior was good too. Punctuality - Started 45 mnts late. Reached 1.5 hours late.


          The worst travel- i have ever traveled with my Family with my Small Kid such a bitter night due to Kallada. As per Booking i have to board at Pondicherry Busstand (Destination Madurai) but your travels asked us to board a cab and dropped us at Tindivanam. Then Boarded in Kallada travels after 0.7 km walk. Due to this my family lost Sleep and Anxious. Could not make the entire trip as per plan and our further Programme were collapsed, I need Compensation for us.


          Instead of 7pm dispatch they have preponed to 6pm with very short notice. Have booked for non a/c sleeper they have changed to semi sleeper and they have not returned the difference fair which they have agreedasking


          Buses in Vaigai travels neat and clean(even non AC buses). Staffs are well behaved and responsible. Highly recommended.




          I am not happy with this travel. First time I have faced the complete dissatisfaction


          Please do not recommend such type of bus to the customers as it will spoil the redBus services. I have not not traveled in the bus which i have booked. they have shifted me to some other bus. hectic travel ever i had


          They don't offer direct service from Pondy to Madurai. Had arranged Pondy to Villupuram one bus then waited half an hour at Villupuram bus stand then arranged another bus to reach Villupuram bye pass then we have boarded 12am at last Madurai bus. Staff behaviour was pathetic. If they do not have direct connectivity pls don't show it has direct bus.


          It's very bad experience for me.night 2a.m bus driver changed all the passengers to another bus and its behaviour is very worst. And I book sleeper class after bus changed I travelled in semi sleeper.And I didn't never traveled I lucky travells.


          Bus is not having a charging pt. on seats, so better take your power banks to travel in this bus.....


          bus route is very bad. full jumping. until near trichy no 4 way road. so this route from pondy to madurai not to be prefered.


          bus route is very bad. full jumping. until near trichy no 4 way road. so this route from pondy to madurai not to be prefered.


          really i am very upset, they are changing passengers to 3 buses, then route also very bad, pondy to chidambaram to karaikal to thiruvarur to thanjore to trichy to madurai. Morning 4 am i am reached maduari. Universal travels very worst travels.


          Actually I hav been travel through Kallada travels,from Pondicherry to Madurai on dated 18th July 2015. First the pickup by ordinary bus from pondi to another place and there were no sitting aragement. Just waiting the on Road only till 12:00 mid night. After reaching madurai Bus staff not intimated and stopage has been missed and the drop me 25KM from our stopage. This is too haramental journey from Kallada travels.


          Journey was good. But the screen cloth disturbed the sleeping.


          bus qulity is bad only


          Well. The seats and berths were dirty and smelly. The bus left late and arrived Madurai about 45 minutes late too.

          Bus started as per schedule. Journey was very comfortable.


          Last seat area are not proper kindly change ur quality


          Plz don't prefer this from Pondicherry to madurai....


          Safe, timely and luxerous journey for us. Thank you very much.


          Its was very tedious trip in my life, 1. Bus time is 11.15 but bus came at 1.15 2. Three buses where changed guring the travel 3. I have went for an important meeting, i was able to attend only half of the meeting.


          The experience was nice and comfortable. but the reference no which was given in the ticket was not the proper no for assistance. so please check and correct the number.




          very bad smell inside the vehicle.bed cloths are very ugly and bad smell.i can't travel in the bus at next time.
