The roads are perfect for long journey

5.00/7

The roads are smooth and perfect for long journey. I went in my own Indica Car. The road consist many restaurants in each and every length. But the toll gates are irritating. The weather is very sultry and sweating. Please maintain towels. The road consist of many temples.

Life is similar to a bus ride. So I chose the bus, for my next destination, which was Chennai. The journey begins when we board the bus. The Bus was Volvo and Sleepers were much comfortable. It left 06:30PM. We meet people along our way of which some are strangers, some friends and some strangers yet to be friends. There are stops at intervals and people board in. Via Chinnaganjam and Nellore early morning we were in Chennai. Highway No. 45 was in excellent condition, and between at the stoppages all facilities, such as washroom neat and clean, restaurant and Paan and Cigarette shop, were available, after wash room we had coffee. Journey was really comfortable, as we did not feel tiresome. Traveler must go for advance booking and pick up points, so just reach little early, to have a hassle free journey. Services offered by the operator were nice as clean births, and mineral water.

Flight was on time & helpful cabin crew

The flight was good and was on time and it was not crowded. I always loved the travel via IndiGo. The in-flight cabin crew was helpful and kind. The landing and take off was smooth. The leg room in the flight seating was adequate. The flight had good room and it didn't felt overcrowded and suffocating.

Jerk free while take-off and landing

The timing, the cost, on time guaranteed as stated by them. Hyderabad Airport is awesome as compared to Chennai. The airports do have good number of shops and cafes to keep passengers busy. Free Wi-Fi provided by Tata is a very good option. The exit point connecting to the main road while going in a cab at the Chennai Airport will always be traffic jam. The people travel very rash here. The security check points are always filled with queue and the passengers one who is holding the bags or backpack feels difficulty in standing for a long-time in that queue.

Flight was small and was not comfortable

5.00/7

My flight got cancelled and I was informed before day. They gave me two options one was for full refund and second was for another flight which was scheduled early morning at 5 pm. I already booked my hotel so I had to go for the 2nd one i.e 5 am flight. Flight was very small but started at correct time and we reached Chennai by early morning by 6 or 6:30, as I don't remember. Flight was not comfortable for sitting my legs were long and did not fit in and I had to adjust for 1 hr.
