I waited in cuddalore for 45 mins more than scheduled time, and was practically swooped into a NON AC bus, when confused and asked, was told that i will be transferred to another bus in karaikkal. then in karaikaal, we waited some good 20 mins in a petrol bunk, then were taken in a total different direction before we got across with another bus that was a VOLVO with a lot of rattling noise. so finally boarded that bus to head for cochin. and were made to get transfer done in a highway, raining and rude staff fighting with some of the fellow passengers. Total crap of a travel. Never again with this Universel Travels. it took around 14 hrs of journey and definitely not worth the money.
