Would Your Group Benefit From Chartering A Bus?


Charter bus transportation is a popular choice for groups of all sizes that want to go somewhere. You might wonder if you should spring for a bus charter. This blog will look at why that could be a good choice.

Group Size

The larger a group is, the more likely it is that a chartered vehicle will be the right option. It is a good idea to tell the transportation company the expected size of your group. Most companies offer several sizes of buses, and that will make it easier to right-size the vehicle for yours. Even if you have a very large group, you can ask about chartering more than one bus.

Be sure you know what the size of your group will be. If you're worried a few more guests might join you, ask for a bus charter that'll have a few more seats. It is always better to have a few spare seats than to wonder if a couple of group members will be sitting in other people's laps.


As you might expect, moving a group on a bus charter tends to be cheaper on a per-person basis than folks taking their own cars. It frequently ends up being cheaper than flying, too. If you're looking at alternatives, make sure to check the per-person cost. Ask the charter bus transportation company for a quote so you can divide the cost by the number of people who'll be in your group. You may discover that a chartered bus offers an excellent bang for each traveler's buck.

Sticking Together

Even if your group isn't going to be gigantic, there's an argument for sticking together. Again, most transportation companies can offer at least a few options in terms of vehicle sizes. Consequently, it shouldn't be hard to find the right vehicle for your needs so you can move the group as one. Particularly if you're visiting a place not everyone knows in and out, this can be good for the safety and sanity of all involved.


Especially if you plan to travel for several hours, there's a lot to be said for taking a bus charter. Many buses have numerous amenities, and that can make a huge difference for folks traveling longer distances. There will be larger seats and more leg room, and that can benefit people who may have circulation issues or just don't want to feel cramped. Having access to a bathroom without stopping the bus is also quite nice. You also can talk with the charter bus transportation company about the available options for outfitting the vehicle to your group's needs.

Tips for Navigating Your Transportation Options While on Vacation

Many travelers face the same dilemma while on vacation -- is it better to rent a car or take taxis? I made some guidelines for myself to determine which transportation option to use during each vacation. First, I always rely on taxi-cabs in large cities, as I can walk many places and driving in heavy traffic is not for me. Rental cars are best for quieter locations. Second, I determine what is on my itinerary, if I have one at all. If I have a strict plan of where I need to go and when, then I take a cab. If I don't have a tight, planned-out schedule, then a rental car is more useful for driving around and checking out scenery. I created this blog to encourage others to stop stressing over which transportation option you choose and when. Make your own guidelines to make the choice easier.
