The travel experience was really good - the staff were good, the bus was good. The only challenge was there is no waiting hall at the boarding point at Perungalathur and had to stand on the road - given the traffic and delays - it takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes on the road.

On the contrary at Coimbatore Hindustan Travels office is good with ample space and seats.

Thanks to Ticketgoose, have really benefited with their offers and their service.

I thought that SRS Travels experience will be good but first I face bad experience in their front office locate at Perungalathur employers are not respond proper to travellers and making louder/quarrels noise among them. Later while travelling, driver made trouble that he lost his mobile and all, nearly he stopped bus more than a hour and we got much irritation too.

The staff both at the counter and the bus are courteous and very helpful. The bus was kept neat and clean. I could sleep without any disturbance during my entire journey. There was slight delay due to rains otherwise timings are maintained. Sleeper bus start between 9 and 10:30. Some require to carry a pillow to make your sleep more comfortable.

I am one of the business people. Actually I had appointment to meet my client by 9 Am. As per the ticket, the boarding time and reporting time was 9.15 Pm and 9.30 Pm. But bus reached only 10.30 Pm. Has the results bus yet to reach Coimbatore. how can I able to keep-up my meetings and who will bare the loss of pay. its totally ridiculous and unfair thing.

Kindly refund the bus fair. Because there is no use for me from this travel.

Expecting Your valuable feedback.

I hate ATR flights due to the shear turbulence, however this flight was very pleasant after the first few minutes. Maybe our luck or maybe exceptional routing by Jet Airways. I have seen a lot of people complaining about the food ( sandwich ) that is served, however what else do you expect to finish in a flight that has a airtime of around 50 minutes.

I would prefer Jet Airways over any other Airline.
