Recent experience with 707 bus?

Hi - we are travelling from Singapore to Melaka in a week or so and I have booked 707 bus.

I have since looked at TripAdvisor and can see poor reviews on here, but a great deal of them have been written by only one or two people, in every forum. I was wondering if anyone has anything positive to say about them, even if it is just a "we got there ok".

There is still time for me to book another ticket, but I only want to do this if it is really necessary as it is a waste of money. Anyone got real world experience of using them - not just hearing bad things from someone else?

Thanks!!

Hi Ddayrncm, Thanks for your answer. I appreciate your opinion and I have seen and read your frequent comments on the bus company in other posts with interest. I have certainly noted your opinion.

Unfortunately Luxury Coach do not fit with out times as they only go early in the morning and we can't take them.

I am just curious to see if others would say they have never had any problem, as it usually seems to be the case that the strongest opinions come from a bad experience some time.

We ended up flying to KL on Air Asia as it was so cheap and took about the same amount of time as the bus was slated to do so. Direct 1.5 hour bus from KLIA2 to Melaka was a good option and left every hour or so and cost practically nothing.

To be honest - we have travelled across many land borders in our time on nearly every continent, but this time we didn't have time for a delay, so flying was perhaps the more predictable option. (If the lines at the land border were the same as at the airport, then I am glad we did).

Good choice but not a choice most will take up though...

Most will try to be hopeful that traffic conditions will be good on their own dates of travel... & some travellers stay at the hotels in Melaka , where buses alight passengers & so that becomes an adavntageous point-to-point bus trip..

In addition , bus ticket prices do not fluctuate by much...

Air tickets are only cheap if u choose weekdays departure...

Glad u enjoyed!!
