I liked that the confirmation of my ticket was fast

The seat I booked and chose online was already occupied upon entering the bus. The driver/bus assistant should've checked the tickets next time.
Bus Regular AC, Victory Liner (Victory Liner), Dec 29, 2023
Victory Liner frontliner who entertained us told us that we need to buy another ticket because the 12go only sends voucher 24 hours after online booking. She did not check their online system, only to find out that we were already appropriately booked.

Only one thing I did not appreciate was that they were not able to provide us water. I asked about it but was told that supplies were insufficient.

First time to ride this bus. We were not able to transfer date of our first booking a day before our trip. It was quite difficult to navigate the site for rebooking. We just didn't expect that there were many stopovers along the way. But overall, the the drive was smooth and safe.
