Yesterday i had made an online confirmed booking on Red Bus' website for a ticket for my sister to travel from Goa To Mumbai by Atmaram Travels A/C sleeper bus. Her confirmation details:Ticket no: TGBW67794554 PNR no: R38H4V dated 2.11.2014. Cost of ticket Rs.1500/-
Within about an hour and a half she received a call from the booking office of Atmaram Travels, Mapusa, opp. taxis stand- informing her that her ticket was not valid for travel since they had already sold her seat manually, to another traveler.
Apparently, this is a regular practice of booking agents during peak season, since they can sell seats at a premium.
Due to my sister's strong objections, they provided her a ticket for the same price on an alternate AC Volvo sleeper coach BUT conveniently omitted mentioning the fact at the bus would proceed to Mumbai via Pune!
One can only imagine the discomfort and waste of time in undertaking such a long journey.
RED BUS online booking AND Atmaram Travels - NEVER AGAIN!
