When a bus crosses borders it would be nice if the staff ciuld explain exactly what people should do,where they should go and where they should wait for the bus to pick them up

Vaios C.13 November 2018 | 

I had a very serious incident while travelling with intercape. After the crossing borders the staff didnt allow me to enter the bus because i was late into customs. I explained to him that it was not me but the customs staff who delayed me but he was keeping me for 15 minutes outside the bus while he was shouting at me in front of the people. I never experienced in my life such a behavour against me. It is not tolerant. He open the door when i called a police officer to come and help with the situation.

Nadine T.27 January 2018 | 

While I was waiting for my visa to get solved at thr border of Mozambique, the bus already drove away! He didn't checked if we were already in the bus. My boyfriend had to run after the bus to make it stop and tell the driver he had to wait. Than the driver told him he only wanted to wait 5 more minutes, that's wrong!

Bavon M.23 October 2017 | 

I l'île thé company. Unfirtunately, while at immigration getting m'y passport stamped, thé driver went with thé bus leaving m'y collègue Kitoko ans myself at thé boaders. Bus 155 left us. I am glad m'y embassy was able to go cet pour lagguage. I am wondering how we will ne treated on 28 Oct. Sorry for saying this openly. Regards. Bavon

Marc G.16 October 2017 | 

The bus arrived 3 hours late for no apparent reason, waiting 30 mins at drop off points although passengers had finished getting off after 5 mins. Bus already arrived 1 hour late and there was no attempt to keep the delay within reason. I was screamed at to literally run at the border in order not to delay the bus. I got my visa faster than the bus drivers took to come back from their break when everyone was already waiting to get back on the bus.
