It was the worst journey I have ever had in my life.I had booked a non a/c bus at royal travels bcoz a/c buses make me feel nauseous,suffocated and sick so the only thing which I look for while travelling is a non a/c bus, and I am very strict about it bcoz its not a short journey, its a whole nigh journey. What Royal travels did was they cancelled the bus just 2 or 3 hours before the departure, and transferred my ticket to an even worse bus travel service which was Raj travels.......the most annoying part was that the bus they provided was an a/c bus. I had no choice but to make my peace with it bcoz i had to reach my destination by the next morning.On top of everything the staff was completely arrogant with no ethics at all, on how to treat their customers. So in short guys the journey was horrible and the people responsible for that were Royal Travels and Raj Travels, my advice to you guys is whichever bus service you choose dont ever choose Raj Travels or Royal Travels unless you want to suffer a lot during your journey.Royal and Raj travels Sucks!!!!
