Why You Need to Charter a Bus for Your Group This Holiday Season

There’s always a lot going on during the holiday season – church outings, school field trips, family reunions, and many other yearly get-togethers. When it comes to organizing travel plans, however, it can be tough to coordinate drivers and cars stress-free. Does getting your extended family, sports team, or youth group from point A to point B sound incredibly difficult? If so, a charter bus rental might be exactly what you need to ensure things run smoothly and efficiently.

Benefits of Hiring a Bus Charter for Holiday Travel

No matter the occasion, a charter bus rental will make it much easier for you to get everyone from place to place. Here are a few reasons why a charter service is the best option for you and your loved ones.

Stress Less When You Charter a Bus

Whatever your reason is for needing to transport a large group of people, it will always seem stressful. For instance, you need to keep track of kids, keep a headcount to ensure no one gets left behind, and do your best to ensure everyone arrives at the same time. Moreover, this might get complicated if you have several groups taking multiple cars to the same destination. Whenever possible, keeping your group together is the best plan of action. Therefore, there is no simpler way to do that than to rent a charter bus.

Charter Bus Rental Is Cost-Effective for Big Groups

When you consider the price of multiple car rentals – or at least filling the tanks of your own cars, any travel gets expensive quickly. Luckily, in reality, large groups can travel relatively inexpensive with charter bus rentals. It may surprise you, but when broken down to cost-per-person, it surely is an inexpensive way to travel.

In fact, the average cost of a 5-hour trip is $600 – $925. If you break that down between 50 people, it will only cost $12 – $19 per person to cover that cost. For a large group of people, the convenience of arriving all at once and not having to stress about traffic is certainly an advantage that’s often worth that price.

Also, if you’re traveling further away or intend to use the bus for multiple days, you could be looking at $1,300 – $1,700. While that is significantly higher per person at $26 – $34 per person, it also covers multiple days for that low price.
