Both the drivers were really friendly and accommodating. Though they didn’t speak much English, they did try their best to understand the other passengers that asked some questions.

Overall, I had a positive experience. I was satisfied with the bus and the driving. The estación was a little confusing because I didn’t know which bus my bus was (I had a stop on a bus with another final destination), so I wish I had had that information prior to getting to the station.

Bus itself was a little old, no powerpoints for charging and it wasn’t as clean inside as it should be. Apart from that, no complaints.

Ivan D.4 October 2018 | 

The staff wasn’t so nice with the customers and the air of the bus didn’t work.

Driver spoke no English, no announcements, took 7 hrs to get to Alicante. Seemed the fwy was slow/cluttered. Our only stop at Albercete was so busy with school groups that one didn't have time to order food,then people were late coming back on board.
