We booked a cab, searching online, from ARV Travels, Chennai. We travelled about 2000 km Chennai-Chidambaram-Mayiladuthurai-Kumbakonam-Thanjavur-Trichy-Chennai and covered over a 100 ancient temples in 8 days. The driver was very patient, and the Toyota Etios Car was comfortable.

I often cross Pondy to reach Chennai. I use to take both East Coast Road and NH-45. It is very comfortable to travel in NH-45. I use to start early in the morning because the traffic will be less. I use to come over there to attend my office meetings. Mostly I will spend some time in shopping.

I booked a Non A/C sleeper from Chidambaram to Chennai in Tamizh Travels. The departure time was mentioned as 11:59 Pm where as the bus actually came at 2:00 Am. I was made to wait for 3 hours alone with all my luggage. No contact numbers where listed on the message I received. I had to contact Ticket Goose customer care and they provided me two numbers which were both wrong numbers. I contacted customer care again to get their head office number and they lethargically said the departure time was wrongly entered in the Ticketgoose website and asked me to wait for 3 more hours. The staff behavior as well as the bus quality was worst. Never use this bus. Worst experience.
