“So, we’ll need at least three cars but I’m not sure if they’ll be big enough for luggage too. Let’s just hope there’s some around at that time of night.”

Sound familiar?

If you’ve ever tried to travel with a group, you know that logistics are cumbersome and things go wrong all of the time!

With a coach bus rental, you’ll have one less thing to worry about. But before you schedule your ride, here are four things that you’ll want to know.

What is a Coach Bus?

A coach bus, also referred to as a charter bus, is a private bus that is usually more luxurious than your standard city or school bus. It’s reserved for private group usage and takes you directly to your destination.

You won’t have to try and figure out a bus timetable with a coach bus rental.

1. Passenger Count

The first thing to keep in mind when considering booking a charter bus is that you may not need the largest option.

Sure, if you’ve got a sports team and luggage to boot, a coach bus rental is likely your best option as they can accommodate 57 passengers, but if you have between 16 and 38 passengers, a smaller minibus with a separate luggage compartment will better suit your needs.

2. Trip Duration

If you’ve got hours on the road ahead of you, or even an overnight trip, the ideal chartered coach is one with extra amenities.

Some coaches will have reclining seats, Wifi, power outlets, TV monitors, and even a bathroom, while smaller transport options cannot accommodate all of these. Keep a list of your “must-haves” when renting a coach bus.

3. Amount of Luggage

Perhaps you and your group of ten people are only going on a short day trip and you won’t need to bring more than a tote bag, but if you’ve got ten high schoolers with their skis and winter gear, you’ll need to make sure your coach bus of choice can accommodate all of the luggage.

In this instance, it might be better to rent a larger coach bus to make sure luggage is securely stored during the trip.

4. Who Drives?

One of the best things about renting a coach bus is that you get to sit back and relax, while a professional driver takes the reins.

They’ll pick you up and drop you off exactly where you need to be according to your itinerary.

No need to worry about getting there on time or navigating new and busy streets while jet-lagged, on a bus none the less, our professional drivers have you covered.
