bad experience, the driver does not stop to go to the toilet but stops so that he can get something to eat for him! unacceptable, it was not a 9-seater van but rather a coach with at least 16 people, with the clutter of suitcases in the corridor of the coach, no air conditioning!!!!

we booked the express so we would travel only 3:45 hours and it took us 5 hours of traveling. we were put in a minivan instead of a normal bus and had to wait 1 hour on the connection with the ferry.

The transportation; the bus and fast ferry we booked through 12Go was fantastic! I can recommend it to everyone. Note: when booking, insurance is automatically on. We Dutch are usually already insured.
