For our own booking, we booked for a one-way trip to Lagos. Departure was the Owerri terminal at Egbu road. And the arrival terminal was that of Maza Maza around Festac gate. We used the card option which worked perfectly using an Ecobank MasterCard while that of GTB failed. See the card payment form below.

How to Board A God Is Good Bus After Booking Online

Here I believe you must have booked and successfully paid for your trip online from either the mobile app or online booking platform. The next thing is how to board the bus upon getting to the terminal.  You might be thinking why not just go and enter the bus?? Of course, you can’t because a bus is yet to be assigned to you. All you have is proof of payment and seat reservation but not a bus.

To get assigned onto a bus or rather for you to get a ticket for the bus you booked for online, you have to take your reference code and trip code to the God booking section at your departure terminal and seek for your ticket to be generated (It will only take you 5 minutes). A small paper print out (ticket) showing your name, vehicle number, seat number and amount paid will be given to you.

It’s now left for you to sit tight, get something to eat, and wait for them to call for boarding. From where, the bus will be loaded, with whatever little luggage belonging to you and or other passengers and then take off.

My Personal Experience With GIGM Online Booking

The online booking process was swift, same as the boarding, but not the take-off.

I booked my ticket online with the intention of taking off early (7:30 am to be precise) so as to get to my destination on time but that wasn’t the case.

I woke up a bit late on the departure date after booking online a night before, took my bath, prepared and rushed down to their terminal in Owerri. Got there few minutes after eight, went to the booking section to generate my ticket which was done in minutes. Then the waiting began…

Departure was 2 hours later. How sad I was.

Had I known, I wouldn’t have left without finishing my breakfast. Now, a lot might be attributed to the late departure such as late arrival of fellow passengers/travel mate (African time mentality), the inability of the bus to get filled on time and other factors. but I just thought it wise to include that here. And to say that 7:30 am could still mean 10 am (as in my case).

The bus assigned to us, for some reason best known to God is Good, was changed minutes before boarding. But the sitting position still remained the same.

In all, the experience was awesome. The vehicle was in good condition, A.C worked fine. The driver was good at it. Didn’t for once over speeding, and I got to my destination (Lagos) safely at about 6 in the evening.
