Transfer from airport - Fly bus

We have just landed in Iceland and our first experience has not been the best!! Landed at 12am and having already pre-booked our transfers with fly bus we waited patiently near the fly bus desk. We waited for 1.5hrs! A lot of people had gathered by this time, all waiting for the same bus. Finally we heard it was coming and everyone made a mad dash to get it, people were running, tripping each other up and then pushing to get their luggage on and then up the stairs. A flight then broke out as some people were holding seats for their partners who were still outside. In the end lots of people were thrown off as there weren't enough seats. They then had to find their bags amongst all the others. Around 20 of us were left standing in the cold even though we had been waiting the longest! We were told another bus would come and about 30 minutes later it did. Again the same thing happened. Complete lack of organisation from the company, a lot of yelling for nothing! A simple ticket approach with first come, first served would have worked but instead it was mayhem! We finally got to our hotel at 3am....I'm hoping the rest of the holiday will be better. But for those booking fly bus..be wary...people can be ruthless when it comes to the coach!

Take Note: If you are only taking a short break, i.e. 3-4 days, car hire can be cheaper than Fly Bus tickets for two and much, much more convenient.
