It is advisable to buy a ticket in advance when traveling by bus to Santiago City Isabela especially during holiday season when it can get pretty crazy at the terminals. You can also call them to reserve a ticket, though pre-purchasing the ticket at the terminals is the guaranteed way to secure a seat on the bus. If you have an advance ticket be there at least 30 minutes before departure. A ‘chance’ passenger, meaning no advance ticket, can only board the bus 10 minutes before its departure time and at times may have to stand in the middle until a seat will be available.
Some buses have television inside where they play a movie during the trip to entertain the passengers. Thus having a seat on the front rows has its perks aside from the fact that it makes you feel less car sick. Nowadays, wifi is available in some buses so you can stay online. Note though that the connection is not stable especially when in the mountain area. Keep in mind as well that you are travelling by a means of public transportation so be alert of your personal belongings. Don’t leave your things unattended.
