worst travel ever .. very late arrival .. staff charged additional 50 rs for luggage
KPN TRAVELS IS WORST IN TERMS OF PUNCTUALITY ,QUALITY OF THE BUS .ITS LIKE A MOFFUSIL BUS ..
The worst experience that I never had before. The bus should have arrived at Salem at 09.15 PM but It came at 11 PM. It should reach Marthandam at 06.30 AM but I reached at 12 PM. I had to cancel the meeting and came by the same bus in the evening. No use for me for the past two days. At least when I came back, They should have followed the timing. But same thing happened while returning also. Same bus. K.P.N is not providing good service.
Very very worst service. I will not slect KPN in future. No Quality, They dont have punctuality. Staff behaviour is very bad and worst. The staffs in KPN are loolking like a rowdies. They dont have manners. KPN is waste.
