the snacks and drinks were decent; the movies were good (except the picture quality was bad and bring your own headphones); good blanket and pillow service; comfortable seats really, the only problem was this: I rode the bus from Esteli, Nicaragua, to Guatemala City, Guatemala. The journey took 15 hours. The problem is that the bus didn't stop in Esteli.... More

I purchased a bus ticket from San Salvador to Managua. In San Sakvado, I checked with 3 bus companies and specifically paid a much higher price for King Quality because they said there is wifi included. I was also told that there were meals and unlimited beverages. With my fare of $151 USD, I also had a taxi from the... More

We travelled from Managua to Guatemala City with King Quality (now Platinum) and had a pretty good journey. The first coach to San Salvador was really comfortable, really clean and had working wifi and charge points, blankets and pillows, it was pretty much as advertised. The second coach from San Salvador to Guatemala was an older bus, not quite as... More

Due to ridiculously overpriced airfare in Central America, I chose Platinum Centroamerica (former King Quality) to travel from Managua to San Salvador. The ride was 105$ and another 25$ for crossing the borders (both ways together). The ride itself is really comfortable! The chairs are big and recline very far (which can be annoying, if the person in front of... More

I think that KQ has recently rebranded as Platinum (http://platinumcentroamerica.com). I took the Platinum service from Managua to Guatemala City, leaving at 3am and arriving 90 minutes earlier than scheduled at 7.30pm. The first leg, to San Salvador, was on what looked like a brand new vehicle; smart, spacious, comfortable and clean, with films, working WiFi and two toilets. There... More

I like KIng Quality not only for the chairs and food services, but also because the have a person checking on every body status. I have seen how they help persons with problems on traveling, they have a emergeny kit for helping people.

I have taken King Quality several times on visa runs from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. Due to the tickets being higher than other buslines, there is very few people on the bus, a nice bonus...this ensures you will have your seat row to yourself. The a/c is very strong so bring a jacket. They serve meals, snacks, and beverages, and... More
