Pick up not properly. Very slow
I was taken 3 tickets and I had 2 kids of age 6 and 5... As a kundas they threatened and collected rs 400 as half ticket.. I even told I pay 800 and asked to allocate seat which they denied... They didnt even gave receipts for the Amt collected.. Very sarcastic and disappointed with the way they behaved..pl Also send the rules and regulations for kids..
We did not get food where they parked the vehicle, we asked the driver he said as per bus owner instruction they are parking the vehicle in the particular hotel. Can u instruct the bus owner to take food there? They should maintain some standards (There are plenty of good hotels available from chennai to tirunelveli) and the driver was behaving rude manner. You wont take any action because the bus owner is taking commission from the hotels as per driver words. Instead of doing this type of cheating (I HAVE PAID Rs.1399 double the fare) the owner can do other third rated business. If you are doing the business properly, pls send your reply what action has been taken.
The journey was comfortable. We had one stop to use the rest room in a journey of 12 hours. One more stop has to be introduced. - Zawahir
