The stuff was very friendly. But compared to my last 3 months in Southamerica I had better buses. The aircondition was too cold!! There were no toiletpaper in the toilet, no charger for the phone, no food (there were always food and some softdrinks in the last trips)
I selected ejecutivo class om your web page only to to find semi cama on my ticket. The bus was not clean, aircondition way too cold, so cold my neck muscles became sore. Noissy video's were played on the tv passed 12 o clock at night. Even though we selected a direct tickets we had to change busses at 07:00 The time we should have arrived at salta.
Flecha bus is the worst company I had in Argentina. I would not recommend it. The bus was disgusting, packed with mosquitos inside. The aircon somehow was not on during the day but full on at night...and the best is that my seat seemed to be broken so I could not even recline it correctly. Was also supposed to be direct but somehow they transferred me to another bus at the end. No toilet paper or soap in it...
No food, no blankets-(aircon on full blast at times), blue lights on over seats at all times, no toilet paper.
Only stopped once for supplies and only cash accepted at both kiosks.
Staff were v helpful and patient especially as we have v limited spainish and had to change buses at a certain point.
The staff, especially the woman attendant, were outstanding. One of the best staff I have ever seen. The bus did not come with phone chargers and the airconditioning was at first making everyone sick by being too strong and then stopped working.
It was the worst trip ever... it was around one hour late the leaving of Mendoza and after two hours was the bus broken, after one hour of trying to fix it they call another bus(just semi casa) but it was also broken after one more hour another bus came! It wasnt flechabus but it was the dirtiest bus ever! Chewing gums everywhere also the empty bottles and it wasnt even semi casa! So next 10hours or more we spent there and than we had to change bus again-the last one was nice and clean but it was the slowest bus ever! So I came to Salta 6hours later than I wanted!!! Just one good thing was the steward! She was really nice and tried to do her best to make me feel comfortable! But I will never ever take a flesha bus
Bus was meant to leave at 11:30am when we booked our tickets a week before departure, it was changed to 12:30pm and was meant to arrive in Salta at 7:15am but we didn’t arrive til just before 9am; apart from this, the bus was comfortable, had some movies playing and felt safe.
The bus is really old and shaky, some of the seat cover on the side is about to fall off. No facilities as advertised on Busbud, no WiFi, no charger, no blanket or pillow, even no toilet paper. We had a 18 hours bus ride and they only give us a pack of cookies and instant coffee plus a cup with no instruction. We only know that we have to get the hot water by ourselves when other passengers asked the staff. It’s totally not worth it for the price we paid.
The staff on the bus were very good. However, on the bus a rock got thrown through the window which happened to hit me in the neck and covered myself and katherine pilling in glass. This has now given me whiplash and severe muscular neck ache which I expect will last for a couple of days-a week. We then went back to Mendoza to change onto another bus which broke down 2 times on our journey to salta. The bus took 27hours in total instead of 18. Hence why I am dissatisfied with the overall journey.
The boarding policy contradicted the boarding rules of which Bus bud had written to me. And a typing error from Bus bud resulted in my girlfriend having to purchase a new ticket. Meaning she bought one ticket from Bus bud and yet another direct from Andesmar for the same trip.
Had to change buses just before we came to Salta - they did not previously tell us that those heading to Salta would have to change buses and I only found this out when I saw my bag being taken off the bus. Better communication to the passengers would be good, otherwise this service was great
