7 Items Not to Forget When Packing for a Long Bus Trip

Are you planning to travel a long distance by coach bus? If so, then make sure to bring these items along so you are able to travel comfortably on a charter bus no matter how long the ride is!

1. Bring a blanket

Everyone’s body temperature is different! ┬áSometimes the air conditioning can be a bit chilly, so make sure to bring a blanket, wrap, or scarf that you can wrap up in. It is also a good idea to dress in layers. Think a thick sweater, a couple shirts, and don’t forget your socks!

2. Don’t forget your travel pillow

You may not have a window seat you can curl up next to during your ride. Bringing a small, soft travel pillow will allow you to catch some shut eye no matter where you sit.

3. Snacks

Don’t be forced to buy those really expensive snacks en route when you could pack your own! It is a good idea to bring along some snacks with protein, such as peanut butter and crackers, cut up fruit and vegetable slices, granola bars, and nuts. Don’t forget a reusable water bottle that you can refill at each rest stop.

4. Entertainment

Charter bus rides can sometimes be long. Make sure to stay occupied with a book, some magazines, a coloring book, music, and electronic games to pass the time. Our charter buses are equipped with wifi and power outlets so bring along your e-readers and smartphones.

5. Hygienic items

It is always good to cut down on the chance of spreading the cold virus on any public trips so bring along hand sanitizer, tissues, and disinfectant wipes for your trip.

6. Sunglasses and hats!

These are especially helpful if you are traveling during the day so you won’t have to deal with window glare. They can also double up as a sleep mask during the nighttime!

7. Keep your valuables with you

On board there is room for one small carry-on sized bag or purse, make sure it contains your most important belongings such as medicine, all electronics, your wallet, and multiple forms of identification in case anything happens to your suitcase.
