Charging points and bearth lights were not in working condition which I think is an important in long journey and lots of stopovers which caused the delay.
My window was not getting closed in such freezing cold night journeys. Worst experience.
The travel was very bad beacause first of all they told me through message that it was a new lcd bus wich was not true and the second thing is that we paid rs. 500 for sleeper and in the between the bus broke due to which we were told to change the bus and there was no space in the new bus to sleep and we travelled all the way through sitting... And we expected to have some some refund as we did not get a sleeper but that disnt happen. I will assure that this was my last journey with this travel. Thankyoi
Cabin lights do not work The TV does not work Moreover the staff is unprofessional at its apex. It was my worst experience since 5 years! I always travel with purple!
