The check in process in sants have to be quicker, we wait to much time in the bus. The second driver for the second part of the trip, dives to fast, gets clients a little bit worried ( i couldn fall asleep)
The bus was spacious and the bus driver was pleasant. But passengers were very loud talking, watching videos on mobile phones with sound on, answering phone calls throughout 7 hour trip. I don’t know the common sense of Spain, but I appreciate if the driver warns passengers to turn their mobile phones off or put the sound on mute out of respect for other passengers. Gracias
Bus air conditioning didn't work properly and was an extremly hot and uncomfortable trip. Wifi also did not work. Very disappointing after other bus trips around Spain. I wish I had caught train instead.
I booked a trip but didn’t realize it was pm until I paid for ticket, I was unable to correct the ticket for the correct time, I had to book another ticket and lose the money for the first ticket. There should be a way to change a ticket within a few minutes after you book one. Added expense made me upset.
Bus broke, never show up at bus station in Barcelona. They put us in another bus then drop all the partners heading to San Sebastian at another bus stop. We had to wait almost to hours for the next bus. So instead of arriving at 14.10 like we were supposed to, we arrive in San Sebastián at 18.10. Not good!!
Our seats did not have a wall charger, as I looked around all others had. No wifi during 7,5 h trip (bus had wifi, this i know because it had a wifi sticker). Seats moderate, don't move sideways for extra room.
