Orange Travels Review:
I’m Viswa Tej an IT Professional from Madhapur, Hyderabad. My Native is Ramchandrapuram a small town near Kakinada. My parents stay there. I usually prefer train journey than bus journey. But as this year for Dusserah festival, there is a heavy rush for train tickets and I failed booking a Tatkal ticket due to frequent time out errors in IRCTC website. So, I thought of going by bus. Bus tickets are also filling up fast. My Desired seat (center seats or cabins) are only available in Kesineni and Orange travels. But because of my bad past experience with Kesineni travels, I preferred choosing Orange Travels though it is a non AC Volvo 2+2. Based on my experience I will review Orange travels now.
I booked the ticket from Travelyaari website because it is giving 50 rupees discount on the ticket fare. A ticket from Hyderabad to Kakinada for a non AC Volvo Orange travels is 440 rupees. I used a discount code of “hyddiscount” without quotes and got 50 rupees discount. It may also work for you. Try it when you book tickets next time. I selected my boarding point at Madhapur. My operator told me that a mini bus will come to travel office opposite Keshav Reddy sweets, Madhapur at 10:10 and asked me to be there by then. I liked the response and polite tone of the operator. I came to the location by 9:50 itself. Some bus crew, I think conductor of mini bus called me at 10:00 and checked whether I’m ready and they also informed me to be there as soon as possible. As said, the mini bus came at 10:10 and every one boarded the bus and conductor found a passenger is missing. He called him and waited for him for about 10 minutes and then started. Most of the travel’s mini buses look ugly without proper maintenance. But it is not the case with Orange travels. The mini bus is air conditioned and it is comfortable. It took around 25 minutes for us to reach to Lakdikapool where the main bus will come at. I got down quickly as I only had a backpack. I don’t carry much luggage while travelling.
The ticketing system of the orange travels is good. The bus number is mentioned for us on our E-ticket. So, there is no hassle of identifying our bus. The operators sitting at Lakdikapool travel office are very busy assisting and answering other passenger’s queries. Whenever a bus comes, they are announcing the bus names and destinations and requesting the passengers to board the respective bus which arrived. So, the entire environment is very active and I felt the employees of Orange Travels are much more responsible when compared to my previous experience. Finally my main bus came around 11:30. I waited for the main bus sitting in the travel office for about 30 minutes. I felt very bored and sleepy waiting for such long time. I got into the bus and placed my bag in my respective luggage space. Luggage space is very small. I pushed the bag with great pressure to adjust it. I’m sure the female passengers will feel great difficulty. I settled in my Seat G12 and the bus started in few minutes. The conductor came and checked my ticket and my ID proof. The seating and the appearance of the bus is not excellent but good enough. The television is not yet switched on. In a moment bus crossed Dilshuknagar after picking up some more passengers from there. When entire bus filled up, the conductor came and played Gabber Singh Movie. Being a fan of Pawan Kalyan, I felt exited to watch the movie. Meanwhile they gave us a small mineral water bottle. The journey was smooth and they stopped the bus around 1 at a Highway Dhabaa. As I’m watching the movie, I didn’t get down. It started again in 15 minutes and I slept unknowingly. Morning the conductor woke me up at my destination saying ‘Sir, Your stop has arrived’. Felt very happy for seeing such responsible guy. Otherwise I would have crossed my destination. I got down at my spot around 8:10 with a 10 minutes delay.
The whole journey is smooth, Safe. The price is also reasonable. The bus crew, operator, ground staff and management are good. Only complaint is, it is almost 9:00 in the morning when we reach home. It would be very good if they can plan dropping us at our destinies before 7:00 by starting a bit early the before day. Given me a choice, this would be my feed back for them. Hope my orange travels review helped you.
