7 Tips for Renting a Party Bus
Party Buses come in all shape and sizes and are used for taking the family to the Manhattan Cruise Terminal to the next great concert at the Wells Fargo Center. Here are 7 tips to make sure whatever the destination, your Party Bus rental is perfect.
1. Plan in Advance
Party Buses are popular and if you are going to a public event like a sporting event or concert, there is a chance you are not the only one with the idea. So by securing your Party Bus rental in advance, you can make sure you get the best bus available with all of the amenities you want.
2. Choosing your Vehicle
Party Buses are just that, a party. Like any party, you need to know how many people will be attending. This is important because you don’t want to rent an 18 passenger Party Bus and have 25 people on it and you don’t want to rent the 48 passenger Party Bus and have the same 25 people. Know your headcount before you pick the vehicle.
3. Plan your Destination
This may seem obvious as you are renting a Party Bus to go somewhere but most bus rentals have multiple stops in the night. Going to dinner before the concert? Your driver will need to know where. What about after the tailgate and big football game? Want to hit a local pub to watch the late games. Let your driver know so they can plan your route, ensuring you arrive as quickly and safely as possible.
4. Understand the Cost
When renting a Party Bus, there will obviously be a cost to the night. Make sure you understand what the hourly rate will be, what happens if you go long and is gratuity or other taxes or fees included. Many people rent a Party Bus as a group, sharing the cost. So if you are the organizer, make sure you understand the entire cost for the evening to make sure everyone can contribute evenly.
5. Refreshments are a Must
If you are renting a Party Bus for an adult group, then there is a fair likelihood that adult beverages will be consumed. Understand that in Pennsylvania and other states, the Transportation Company can’t supply the alcohol. So make sure you know what you want and plan on bringing a cooler or two. While most buses have a bar (or two) in them, it is often much easier to transport coolers on and off than loading them into the built in bars.
6. Who doesn’t like Snacks
The average Party Bus rental is more than 8 hours. People get hungry! Even if your night out includes dinner, light snacks are a great addition as the party goes into the evening. If you are working with a great Transportation Company, they can help arrange snacks, either purchased prior to the trip or even during the evening while you are off the bus and at one of your destinations.
7. This Party will go Longer than You Think
The average Party Bus rental is extended by 30 minutes and more than 25% of all Party Bus rentals get extended by more than 90 minutes. Party Buses are fun! So when planning your night, assume you will go long and factor that into your evening plans.
