Manila to Baguio Destination Reviews

We had online booking for 2 persons but due to unavoidable circumstances plus traffic we came in late by 19min. We were expecting that we can upgrade or even downgrade our ticket, since we knew that on the contract, no refund or cancellation. The customer service representative just informed us that we need to buy new tickets. I was thinking airline companies allows rebooking or transfer. We ended getting out ticket in Victory Liner. This is so frustrating!

The trip we booked was cancelled and they have to merge us with the next schedule. They're supposed to merge us with the earlier trip but because they accommodate passenger who are endorsed by some influential people we were bump off, so unfair. The ticketing system is ineffective.
