Our bus broke we had to wait for 4 hours to catch another bus..Intercape provided us with old bus which doesnt have lights with no aircon as well

I booked for a mainliner and instead I was placed in a budgetliner. I did not enjoy my trip at all. The seats on the budgetliner are small and very tiring. There was no entertainment or whatsoever. My body still aches from all that travelling.

Maxhoba T.28 November 2019 | 

we had a flat tyre along the way of which I feel if proper inspection was done that could have been prevented. Also the brakes were making a lot of noise every time they were being applied.

Bus delayed in KWT

Yonela M.15 November 2019 | 

The service was perfect, except for the driver that was mean and harsh to me.
