...We weren't warned about transplantet in the other bus.

Always driving 40 km above the speed limit - passing red lights

...Rude personnel. The trip was dangerous as the driver did not follow any of the regulations. As mentioned in the title exceeding constantly the speed limit and ignoring red lights. We were told that there was space for our luggage in the bus, which was not the case leading to us having to take an 8 hour trip holding loads of stuff. Loud music. The driver was smoking during the trip and throwing his garbage from the window on the road.

...I booked and paid online the ticket and then someone from the company called me and told me there is no available place and I have to send an email to take my money back. After all, some hours before the travel they called me to tell me they found a vacancy and I can finally travel with them. Very disorganized. In the end I traveled because I had to, but this whole situation caused a great mess and it's on your fault only. Next time check your online site and synchronize it somehow so no-one else has the same problem in the future.
