I travelled from Madurai to Chennai before few months by bus(KPN travels)

1. The response from KPN travels was very good
2. The time of pickup and drop was good but not great
3. Seat was nice one.
4. Separate place was luggage is nice one.

In overall nice one and money worth travel from Madurai to Chennai through KPN travels.

Good roads and excellent driving experience. Watch for pedestrian crossing from the dividers. Few tolls towards Chennai have a big queue. Total drive time about 6 hours including one stop for a short meal. Many coffee stops on the way if needed. A good four lane road separated by a divider.

The journey was quite comfortable as the seats were really good. The entertainment through TV was also available and the sound was very moderate so that it does not disturb others. As soon as the film was over, the TV was also switched off so that we could sleep peacefully.

Overall, it was a peaceful journey.

Bus started at perfect time from Madurai. But I reached Perungulatur around 10. 30, almost 4 hrs late. Every 2 hours they halt in motels. Then air condition is not working properly. Worst experience forever. Ticketgoose site is very useful site compare with other. My point of view National Travels is not preferable.

During winter, I prefer traveling in Non-A/c bus, but this time I had to travel uncertain and booked a Non-AC in Parveen Travels (Corona). The bus is simply superb with comfortable leg space and illumination was perfect.

The push back seat was good and it gave ample space to accommodate and hand-rest for individuals. TV was ON till everyone got to sleep and they turned Off, but not disturbing the elders that is so good of them.

The attendants were caring and sweet in their words. Helped each passenger to board off the bus and it reached the destination on time, Overall, experience was excellent !!!!
