Three Things To Remember When Planning a Charter Bus Trip

Charter bus rentals aren’t just the most convenient way to travel in a big group — these buses are also some of the most affordable and eco-friendly travel options available today. With over 3,400 individual bus companies making up the charter bus industry, it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed if you’re planning a charter bus trip for the first time. So, to help you out, here a few tips on chartering a bus that will ensure you have the best trip possible:

    • Make sure to call up your bus company well ahead of your trip so that you have time to plan out the details — how many people will be in your group, how long you’ll be traveling for, and where you’ll be traveling to and from. Reserving your charter bus early in advance will ensure that you have exactly what you need.
    •  One of the biggest benefits of charter bus travel is that you never have to deal with surprise fees for having a suitcase that’s two lbs. over the maximum limit — but that being said, you should still make sure to pack everything carefully! Always put identification tags on your bags, and make sure that you don’t have any dangerous or breakable items in your luggage.
    • Finally, even though bus companies are pretty good with determining travel time, make sure to factor in some extra time for restroom breaks and meal stops. Bus companies will able to plan the fastest and safest route, so this isn’t something that you have to be worried about, but leaving a little extra free time available after your planned arrival time will ensure that your trip is as stress-free as possible and your guests arrive comfortable and relaxed.
