Money deducted with ticket confirmation
I have booked ticket from Hyderabad to Kothapeta, and got an error for two times and ticket not booked. I did not receive any email or message, however money got deducted for two times.
Third time i booked ticket and ticket got confirmed. I contacted Red Bus support team and they simply told they have not received money for first two times and they have not even told in how many working days i get back my money.
Now i have contacted bank and waiting for reply.
Second issue is, i have invited my friend and he is created his account using referral code and he did not get promotional money and even i did not get any e mail. I gave a complaint, below are complaint numbers.
Service is not at all good and no reply or resolution from red bus... quitting this and going for alternate to book bus tickets.

More amount deducted for Cancellation
I have booked ticket from Hyderabad to Trichur on Red bus. Due to some reason i have cancelled my ticket on 22nd March 2013. I have informed their customer care to cancel my ticket over phone they confirmed that i will be refunded Rs.1180/- and cancellation charges will be Rs.220/- out of Rs.1400/- it is recorded, but they refunded only Rs.980/-. Then i called their customer care about this, they confirmed that their company policy has changed now they can't refund the promised amount which is Rs.1180/- . So i request all of you (who ever books ticket -- Bus, Train or Air) to please do not book the tickets by Red Bus.

Ticket sold with invalid information and not returning the money
Hi Sir, I have booked a ticket on 09th Jan 2013 from Red Bus online with below details:
Ticket No: "TF2B98333764"
PNR No: "RSKQAKY47393393"
Passenger Name: "Mr G S V SRINIVAS"
Scheduled Departure: 10:20 PM
Boarding Point: KPHB (near chandana brothers).
I booked the ticket at around 9:30 PM on the same day. We got a call that my sister's health is not good and was advised for MRI scan and so booked the ticket for my Brother-In-law.
After booking the ticket, called the number given in the ticket was given driver number which I called and was told to wait at the boarding point. My Brother-In-Law reached the Boarding point by 10PM and waited for 30 min. Still the bus didn't came and so called the driver number again.
To my surprise I was told the bus left the said point at 9:30PM itself... means by the time I bought the ticket, it left the destination???? Then why was the ticket sold by Red Bus to me giving wrong info of the starting time?
When I called the bus driver again asking why was then we were told to wait there when called earlier, giving some lame excuses saying the actual bus went to repair and so it was clubbed with another bus which actually left at 9:30 etc... Seems these vendors are clubbing multiple buses based on passengers and playing games.
In any case, I immediately called back Red Bus explaining the same. I was told to wait in the call and will get back to my after talking to the Vendor... I waited in the call for 20 min.. but there wasn't any response. The Vendor (phone number in the ticket) was switched off when I tried.
I reported this through mail In next couple of hours and got a reply from Red Bus initially that they are looking into this and later after a couple of days got reply saying there were others that boarded the same bus on given date. But they never confirmed the time though. I raised the same point again and was told will get back to me again but till now... never got back.
It was not of money but the way these Vendors and a reputed site like Red Bus are playing together. Especially with the situation in which we booked the ticket it was WORSE experience and with the way Red Bus is responding, I am very very disappointed.
I request whomever concerned to consider my complaint and do the needful.
Thanks & Regards,

I booked a bus ticket for hyd-vizag through online with the RedBus In. It was booked for the 7th July, 2011. They booked it in the Reddy Travels. I had booked for the ac bus and they had charged me according to that ac bus which was Rs.650. It was scheduled for 5:20 PM . When I reached the said bus stop , I found no bus over there and I enquired from the travel agents. They said there was no bus for that specified date and time leaving from Hyd to vizag for that day. When I asked why did they do that booking even when they knew there wasnt any bus for that time, they blamed the Redbus . When we enquired from the Redbus , they just had a sorry and they said they will return our money after a week. I was fooled by this service badly. I dint know what to do that time.
I request you to please take special care in booking your bus tickets from this service because you never know when you can get fooled in midst of a unknown place and crowd.

Non-Refunding the amount on cancellation of the Ticket, which was booked within the span of 1 Hour on 10th May,2010
I am SM. Rabbani. I have used the site "http://www.redbus.in" to book my travel ticket with my Credit Card. I booked the Ticket for "Kaveri Kamakshi Travels". The Ticket was booked from
Hyderabad to Vijayawada on 10th May 2010 at 6:15 PM. My journey time was "11:15 PM on the same day[10th May 2010]". The total fare was Rs. 460.00
Due to some plan change, I tried to cancel the ticket. It was not allowed to do so. So, I tried to call the "RedBus" customer care on phone. They were saying that as per some "Travel's rules", it can be cancelled before to the 12 hours of journey time i.e., "11:15 PM on the same day[10th May 2010]".
But I was booked my ticket at 6:15PM and tried to cancel by 7:10 PM. So there is 4 hours grace time for the bus to reach at my boarding point. So there is chance for the travels that any other seeking people can book the ticket.
They are refusing to cancel the ticket. Please do the Justice for us.
