Hi,
I chooses Indigo, as my Domestic travel for my travel from US to Coimbatore, from Chennai to Coimbatore. In the Indigo official website, it is clearly mentioned that for any international traveler, the baggage allowance will be as allowed in the international.
But during check-in process, I have asked to pay 2000Rs for 8 kg extra, which is not as per their website advertised. Also, they were not ready to accept card, they are taking cash only. Is the staff is taking the cash to themselves
It caused so much issue and we have to run to catch the flight.

Cheran Express is a good train which is running between Coimbatore and Chennai on all days. Since it is a night train there will be no food or water available inside the train. Most of the time, train will be on time at all stations. Toilet cleanliness will be average.

I like Chennai, I always book this KPN Travels bus only because the punctuality of pick-up time and reaching the destination point is prescribed time. The interior of the bus was looking so good and seat cushions were also very nice. The driving is very good, we can take a plenty sleep while travelling in the bus.
