Alsa have done good job

Sergio R.December 13, 2019 | 

The bus it was not the premium tipe, the seats and the catering was not the best, even when I pay for a premium trip, the bathroom was dirty also when is a premium trip the bus driver stop to drop some trash and the azafata took a time for a smoke. I am really disappointed. I pay 62€ for a trip in a 30 something € trip. I will like to get some reinvesting, I pay for the premium becuases I took my mother which is 70 plus years old and have some difficulty. I have to write a complaint...

ALSA have great Bus drivers and I travelled on Saturday the 20th July 2019 from San Sabastin to Madrid, and Madrid to Benidorm and I have to say there was a small fair hair lady and she was wonderful she’d do the work of two men, she was driving the 10am Bus from San Sabastin to Madrid on Saturday 20th July 2019. A great Company, I travel with them every year on holiday in Spain.

Good, professional bus service. Information signs could be better. We had to ask driver for clarification on route

Very comfortable trip.

Andrei G.April 24, 2019 | 

Everything went according to the schedule. However, this is our third trip with Alsa and on all three occasions we were not impressed with the cleanliness of the toilets on the bus.

Tip top

Jonathan V.July 12, 2018 | 

The power to the seats didn’t work and the driver couldn’t have cared less. The seats were too close together, meaning I ended up with bruised knees.

Erin M.July 4, 2018 | 

We had a relaxing trip and we enjo9all of the amenities that ALSA had to offer. I would recommend this trip to anyone traveling!

movie was playing too loudly

Eva D.September 20, 2017 | 

My trip was pleasant. In time.

Po Lam N.September 25, 2017 | 

Staff did not speak any English, also did not want to accommodate for anyone who spoke English. Rude and disregarded our questions. We were not told in advance that we were needed to vacate the bus one stop earlier and was rudely gestured to leave without any information about what was happening and how we would reclaim our luggage. It would be helpful if there was at least a recorded announcement in English explaining what passengers have to do.

Peter B.July 10, 2017 | 

Could not get wifi working on a 5.5hr journey as I could not access ALSA's email in GMAIL .... because I was not connected to the internet. I was not alone with this issue and the on-board instruction sticker was obscured by another Alsa sticker. Pretty hopeless in this day and age.

Leighton P.May 27, 2017 | 

Bus left 30 minutes late. No USB power points. Uncomfortable seats.

Patrick R.April 25, 2017 | 

good work

Thomas L.February 24, 2017 | 

No room to take anything on board - even a small backpack. Bus was late leaving and late arriving. Sears not that roomy or comfortable. We expected more from premium bus.

Lee F.November 5, 2016 | 

I thought that this would be a trying experience. It was entirely painless, actually restful, and the time went by in a wink.

Judy S.November 13, 2016 | 

Given the majority of passengers were English speaking it would be great to have some announcements in another language even if this is on the bus screen so as we know the time for the break and where we are

Niruben M.November 15, 2016 | 

Very smooth journey. Love to do more travel in future. Would definitely recommend to my friends when they travel to Spain. The host girl on the bus was excellent 10/10 👍👍 thank you
