Everything was great except there was only one stop in six hours and we couldn't buy anything. We should at least be able to obtain water for a trip that long or Internus should provide water. I think it was just because of Coronavirus that the place we stopped at was closed but still. Someone should have known that and told us. We could have prepared better for the trip.
The seat allocation is bad , we are a couple and it’s allocated us in seat no 1 & no 61 .This is the first time I have seen this allocation for 6 hours journey from Malaga to Madrid . And the bus is too warm , let me feel very uncomfortable
Bus left Málaga late, we had 1 (20 minute) stop after only 45 minutes on the road, and another stop (half an hour) only 2 hrs later. The bus was uncomfortable, the middle arm rest of my seat was missing so my neighbor and I felt like we were sitting in a love seat. Horrible uncomfortable experience.
I find it stupid to sit people on the back (5 persons next to each other) without arm to lean. For a 6 hours trip, it's not comfortable. Also, at the first part of the trip, it was very very cold with the clim, and after the stop, with the new driver, there was heat like if we were in winter. So not very comfortable.
The bus drivers and staff were very hurried and didn’t treat the customers well. The bus was also very stuffy and it was hard to breathe. The air was very low and there was no fresh air. It gave my boyfriend a headache the entire 7 hour ride.
I last took a long bus journey in the early ‘90 in England and had visions of the same experience. The facilities on the bus was a pleasant surprise. Boarding the bus was problematic and me and my party were held outside, because of a language barrier explication as to why we could not board. Eventually they worked out that we had legitimate tickets and we boarded. This was the reason why the bus was late leaving.
El autobus sufrio una averia y nos quedamos durante dos horas esperando en mitad de la carretera sin ninguna informacion o reporte que nos ayudara. Tampoco nos dieron esperanzas sobre un posible reembolso por las molestias y el retraso. Estoy muy descontenta
The bus needs repairs. Windshield had serious cracks. The entertainment tablets were not working in the rear rows. For the price it was an excellent option. A short break in the middle of the trip was nice.
The bus was extremely old. We were going quite slow the whole trip. We made 2 half hour stops, when others just made 1 half hour stop. We arrived to our destination 4 hours late. While a lot of this was due to traffic, which is no ones fault, I am still very dissatisfied with how old the bus was, which made it extremely uncomfortable and a very very long trip. Can't believe a bus that goes across the country does not have USB or charging ports.
The bus smelled bad and the air was very humid. The wifi stopped working almost immediately. They were playing a movie in spanish very loud, which is kind of inconvenient on nightrides and for people who do not speak spanish. The driver was smoking inside of the bus and also made unnecessarily many stops.
Very uncomfortable the person sitting behind me had her feet on the back of my seat and kicked it very hard on purpose.her feet were on the top of the back of my seat do I could not recline. I am disabled with 10 herniated discs and nerve damage I have to see my tramatalogist due to the tramatalogist. The bus driver failed to fix the problem when he came to see what through problem was. Other passengers got her to sit correctly. The WiFi didn't work on either bus. I will never use this service ever again!!!!
