Allianza did not answer any emails at all
The bus came late. Didn't have any boards or signs. Nobody informed us that this was the bus. We were waiting for more than 1.5 hrs and almost missed the bus. It had some other name, not Blablabus, nearly impossible to know it was ours. Luckily I asked the girl who was supposed to inform us when the bus arrived. We didn't get the seats assigned to us,the driver said seating was random. And on top of all it was smelly(toilet) through out the journey, we got seats near toilet. Overall a really
The bus was 2 hours late and the bus driver didn’t even apologize and then we arrived in London over 4 and a half hours later than supposed. Because of this we missed appointments and are fully dissatisfied. In fact I would want to be compensated for the disadvantage this bus journey has put me in. If I pay for a service I expect to be respected and arrive on time
The bus is terribly uncomfortable, My seat didn't recline like the others (seat 47 I think), I'm not super tall (1.66cm) buy still there was not enough room for My legs, I was seating with my legs on the hall and now My back hurts!! Won't be using your bus again.
Bus left Brussels on time which was nice, but sadly got stuck at customs and we missed the ferry, causing us to be delayed by 3h (not their fault). Bus had no running water at the sink to wash hands after using the bathroom, quite unhygienic.
I was at the bus stop an hour before departure but almost missed the bus. This is becausethe bus had NO indication of Alianza on it. This is ridiculous. Passengers for OUI bus were called to board. How could I know I had to board a OUI bus if I booked an Alianza bus???
My bus never actually came, and I had to wait for an hour and half in order to get on another bus that goes to the same destination. The driver was rude and drove very dangerously, which made me scared.
Waiting on a pavement with no information or assistance was frustrating and worrying.
The process of boarding was almost cruel as I literally shivered from the wind, rain and cold at the front of the queue while the driver called out random names and boarded them first. Even those that benefited from this suggested he should allow me to board the bus because I looked unwell. I felt unwell after waiting over an hour outside.
The only saving grace was that the bus did reach London on time. If the driver had the courtesy to explain his reasons for delaying the bus it could have been a better experience. If there was a shelter or waiting area then delays could be more tolerable.
Please instate signs indicating the bus stop. If buses routinely arrive at random times on the premise that they will arrive on time, this should be clearly stated at the time of booking.
The 1 hour prior to boarding seat allocation is a disgrace and should be reviewed by Trading Standards.
Modern, comfortable and well equipped bus. Staff was excellent - helpful and friendly. Free coffee a real bonus
- some delays through Chunnel due to customs and traffic - nobody’s fault
Bus arrived 15-20mins late, would appreciated live notifications when delayed. Unfriendly staff, not particularly impressed with comments made back and fourth between staff while waiting for for control.
Did not appreciated not having air-conditioning when inside Eurotunnel, it’s was over 25C and I find it unreasonable to expect travellers to enjoy their trip under there conditions.
My partner and I were travelling back from Holiday trip to celebrate his birthday and it would be nice to not have these things part of this special occasion.
The waiting room was dirty, cold and without any confort. The ticket office has been closed for hours just to open 30 minutes before the departure and information for the travellers was absolutely indaguate.
