I received a call from the travel agency informing me that the bus has brokern down and will not be plying. Furthermore I was informed that they have contacted redbus about this issue and I should be hearing from them soon regarding a refund. But so I have not received any communication from redbus in this regard. Waiting for your communication although I have to say that this is highly unprofessional.
Worst behaviour by staffs and bus came late by 45mins. Chennai to salem of 350 kms travel took 11 hours.whch is unusual
The bus I have booked never turned up no body bother to inform me of any alternative I sat in one bus going to velore luckily that was the alternative which no body bothered to tell me reached by 11.30 .my total schedule for the day got haywire
I will never use this Seabird Tourists. Worst Tourists, before 1 hours called and told bus canceled, if you want to go you need to come to another place after 3 hours of actual boarding time. Due to this I lost doctor appointment.
