If you’ve never booked a charter bus before, and you’re unsure where to start, we’ve put together some top tips for you, so you know what to look out for in a reliable, flexible and affordable charter bus company.
Are you planning a privately organised tour? Perhaps you’re organising a work trip with colleagues? Or you’re heading along to a sporting event? No matter where you want to go and no matter how many people you want to take, a comfortable charter bus is the way to go! But before you hop on any old charter bus, you want to make sure your chosen charter bus company is big on comfort, efficiency and flexibility. The last thing anyone wants is to turn up to your intended destination late, uncomfortable and cranky!
Comfort level is important
Like any mode of transport, there are different levels of comfort. So, when it comes time to book your seat on a charter bus, you might want to hunt around for a charter bus company that suits your own personal comfort requirements. Such as seating, perhaps you prefer leather or cloth seats? And legroom, that can be pretty important for some people especially those who are tall. Perhaps you prefer the convenience of your very own personal air conditioning, reading light or curtain for privacy? Some top-level coaches also offer wi-fi, USB charging ports and video monitors for movies on the go!
Efficiency is of the utmost importance
When you enlist the help of a charter bus company, you want to make sure they can make multiple stops along the way to pick up your group. This could be the difference between passengers leaving their cars at home or in public parking that can be costly depending on where you live. This could also save you an expensive taxi ride or a trip on public transport to get you to the pickup and drop off point. It also gives passengers peace of mind knowing they have a designated driver who knows the route, has planned out the timing and promises to get you there happily and comfortably!
Flexibility in a charter bus company
Some charter bus companies may try to tie you down to a schedule ahead of your departure date. But perhaps you’d prefer a flexible itinerary? And perhaps you’d like to make changes to your tour locations? This is something you might like to discuss with your charter bus company ahead of time. As this can quite often incur additional fees. It could be a simple ‘drive by’ to have a look at a certain location. Or might even be a photo opportunity at a chosen spot. You don’t want to miss out all because you forgot to ask!
