Summer is here which means fun weekend trips to Napa, a baseball game, a concert, or a birthday party. This is the perfect time to rent a party or limo bus for any trip. Jeff, from party bus San Francisco, recommends booking in advance as party buses are hot over the summer and get booked up quickly over the weekends especially.
He recommends getting an accurate headcount of the number of people attending. That way the company can quote on the correct size bus. Many companies have 20, 30, and 40-passenger buses with the 20-passenger being the cheapest and the larger buses more expensive. It’s best to get a commitment from those going because most party bus companies require a non-refundable deposit. You do not want to get stuck with the bill when everybody drops out or you lose your deposit upon cancellation.
Next, call a few companies up and get information. The most important questions to ask are:
- Price of party bus (for number of passengers needed)
- Does it include driver’s gratuity, taxes and fuel and are there additional costs?
- What is reservation and cancellation policy?
- Do you require a deposit?
- Does the price include complementary beverages?
You may want to ask about packages for parties, weddings, etc as it may provide you with a better deal. If you are particular about how the party bus looks, you can ask them to send you a photo or ask to come see the bus in person.
Party buses are great for any occasions. You can use them for elaborate occasions like weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, Quinceaneras, prom, graduation, and birthdays. Or you can rent them for casual events, like sporting events, concerts, wine tours, corporate events, family reunions and such. It’s best to book in advance and as soon as you know that everybody is committed.
It’s great for large group travel and can be more cost-effective than carpooling and taking multiple vehicles. Usually everybody splits the tab and it becomes an affordable option for transportation.
Additionally, unlike most forms of transportation, like buses and shuttle vans, party buses come equipped with fun and exciting amenities– such as flat screen TV, DVD and CD players, nice sound system, music accessibility with your personal mobile device and bluetooth, fiberoptic lighting, wet bars, and more. Which make for great entertainment during the long drive to your destination.
If the price does not include complementary drinks, most companies will allow you to bring your own. They will usually have ice stocked in the bar to keep your drinks cold. Hope the article has helped to give you transportation options outside the normal types. Most think that party buses are using for parties only. As you can now see, it can be rented for any occasion!
