BAGUIO: Victory Liner First Class: Nonstop Bus from Manila to Baguio
I never considered taking the bus to Baguio because I always thought it was too inconvenient and the trip too long.
If you want to take public transportation from Manila to Baguio, I highly recommend this bus.
1. It´s non-stop.
Being non-stop, it also means there will be no other people flagging the bus and riding it at any place between the terminal and their destination like regular buses do.
2. The seats are 2 x 1 configuration.
This means I can choose a single seat where I don´t have to seat beside a stranger and be forced to talk to strangers.
3. You can choose seats upon booking.
This means I can choose the single seats when you buy the ticket in advance.
How to book:
There are two ways to book:
1. By buying ticket in advance at the terminal where you will ride the bus.
Note: You can only buy the ticket at the terminal where you will ride. This means you can only buy tickets for the Cubao to Baguio route at the Cubao terminal, and the Baguio to Cubao route at the Baguio terminal.
2. By buying the ticket online 8 days in advance at http://www.victoryliner.com/reservations/.
Tickets will be sent by courier.
Note: You can only buy the ticket online 8 days before your departure date.
750 pesos one way

1. But the tickets at least 3 days in advance. Anyway it´s refundable with 10 % penalty charge.
Present your ticket within 30 days from buying the ticket.They will refund you the price of the ticket minus 10% charge. At the current price of 750 pesos. The amount you refund will be 675 pesos (750 pesos minus 75 pesos charge).
It´s necessary to buy the tickets in advance because the buses are full especially if you travel during the summer. At the time my husband took the bus last May at 10:00 AM on a Friday, the passengers bought tickets in advance and the people who arrived at the terminal to buy the tickets on the day of departure are chance passengers already. There were at least 8 chance passengers during his time.
2. Be at the terminal 30 minutes in advance
As I mentioned earlier, there are several people on wait-list and will take your seat if you´re late.
