Victory Liner: How To Travel First Class from Baguio to Manila



The last time I went to Baguio was in 2011. I ordered my ticket online through Victory Liner's website. From Manila to Baguio and back to Manila, I chose to travel via Victory Liner's De Luxe bus. After three years, I never thought traveling to Baguio (and in my case, Baguio to Manila) can get any better.




From my supposedly surf adventure (no waves!) in La Union, I went to Baguio. Upon arrival to Baguio, I went straight to Victory Liner's terminal located along Gov Pack Road. I wanted to make sure I'll get a First Class trip back to Manila. Sadly, the 1:10pm schedule I want is fully booked. I got the 10:10am Saturday trip. How I wish the Baguio-Manila trip can be booked online.





The Baguio terminal is very clean and the ticketing is very orderly.




You can pay your ticket in cash, creditcard and BDO ATM Debit card. Mine was paid using MasterCard.




There's a food court on the 2nd floor and there's a KFC!


Now, let me share with you my First Class experience..




The bus is clean and spacious. There are only three seats per row. Total capacity is 29 passengers. During your trip, a stewardess will make sure that you'll have a comfortable five hour ride. Our trip stewardess is highly commendable. She was very efficient and gracious. Always ready to assist and offered smart solutions to the concerns of the passengers.




I chose the single seat. Very spacious and comfy. 




Your gadget's battery needs charging? No problem. There's a socket provided under the arm rest.




You can recline the seats and there is a foot rest. Better than most of the budget airlines.




The bus fare is also inclusive of a bottled water and snack.




The First Class bus is equipped with WiFi. And if you don't have a gadget, worry not. Victory Liner will lend you a tablet.




No need for stop-overs because the First Class bus has it's own toilet. Not recommended though for the claustrophobic.




The toilet is very clean. I made sure I'll be able to use toilet for the experience. It was my first time to use this kind of toilet and I didn't feel comfortable because I feel the bus moving. Probably better to use if the bus is stationary.



There are two lcd televisions. If you don't fancy watching a movie, a newspaper is also provided.


Overall, the price I paid for the First Class ticket is so worth it. It took us a little over five hours to reach Manila.

  1. I think Victory Liner Bus Station (main) is the best among Victory Liner stations- pinaka worst ata yung nasa Cubao... You must also try the Joybus (avenida nga lang ata station nila) their buses are "younger" kaya lang wala yang tablet na yan ... Tried the comfort room also while the bus was moving--grabe-- parang takot lumbas ang ihi ko hahhha! But seriously, it's good we have luxury options nowadays-- which makes traveling more relaxed and less stressful
