Victory Liner First Class Deluxe Bus
Victory Liner offers both bus to Baguio deluxe and regular options from Cubao, Baguio to Manila bus, bus from Cubao to Baguio, as well as Baguio to Pasay and vice versa. The deluxe bus travels via the TPLEX road so it’s pretty fast.
Amenities and Features
The Victory Liner First Class Deluxe bus may not boast tablets behind the seats but they do have:
Yup. This basically sealed the deal for me. Since I work remotely, I can charge my laptop inside the bus and even work during the travel. Now, who doesn’t want that? If you left your power bank, Victory bus has your back. Wink. Wink. Wink.
Just like every other bus to Baguio deluxe transportation, the Victory Liner First Class Deluxe Bus boasts of a comfort room right inside the bus. It’s just a bit confusing to find the flush button. The person to use the CR before me didn’t flush so I made it my mission to find the flush button and show that the toilet can BE FLUSHED. I admit it was tough especially since the bus was moving.
That’s right. FREE FOOD. During our travel, they gave us peanuts, bottled water, and a big cupcake. It was yuuummy. Satisfied traveler here!
What I love about bus to Baguio deluxe buses are the wide-open spaces you get. No more cramp room for the legs. Ohlalalala ~
So how much is the fare? One way costs 780 pesos.
