Unfortunately due to a long delay in the arrivals hall, I arrived at the bus stop at 12:38 just as the bus was pulling away. The gentleman in the Avanza was very courteous but could not give me a transfer of my ticket to the next bus resulting in a further cost to me. There was no benefit in prepurchasing my ticket
Driver did not assist with loading the bags either before departure or at the airport, where we had to walk around the bus, drag them out of the hold and work out where the entrance to the terminal building was.
4 hours without rest is heavy and the bus was to late for ship to Tangier, waiting 2 hours in Algeciras is not really nice. Bus and ship would please work together. But coffee in Algeciras port was really fine.
The ride was uneventful but the confirmation was confusing and we left central Malaga for the airport because the ticket said that’s where we left from. We were wrong, it started in central Malaga where we were, then went to the airport and left there for Marbella. So we paid for a cab to the airport unnecessarily.
I enjoyed that the bus was only a few minutts late, and that the driver was good. I did not enjoy the lack of security for children. I had a young mother with a baby on her lap next to me, and I adviced her to put on her safetybelt, which she unlocked after a while. In an accident, the child could have been killed. In Norway the child would have had his own safety- belt connected to his parent, and on the motorway his own safetyseat. The safety of children in cars and busses are
chocking in Spain!!👎
Booked 2 weeks ago and given the last seat on aisle back row. Plenty of seats vacant in front of me. Avanza must give the worst seats to other tour operators. Learmed my lesson to not book with other operators. No aircon at the back veey hot and stuffy. Not giben choice where to go. Only offered mabdrid Airport. I needed centro
Spoke to female in ticket office on arrival at Marbella bus station to check e-ticket on phone was sufficient. When bus arrived driver would not accept and sent us to ticket office to collect printed ticket. From being there 30 min early we were last on and seated at opposite ends of bus.
My one criticism would be it doesn’t say on the ticket exactly where to wait for the bus at the big bus stop at the terminal. But The driver was very kind and came around for me so I didn’t miss it. I really appreciate that.
When we got on the bus we looked for our seat numbers but we were surprised to see that they were already occupied. Everybody on the bus told us that the seats were free to choose and not assigned so it was quite unpleasant to have to fight to take our numbered seats.
After some Confusion regarding what line my bus was coming into which wasn't made clear by the help desk or bus terminal, I missed my first bus. After waiting a few hours I managed to get on the 2.15 bus now problem.
