Renting a charter bus for your next group adventure is a great idea. Allowing someone else to do the driving while you and your companions sit back and enjoy the scenery and each other’s company is wonderful.

Coach bus tours allow you to arrive at your destination well-rested, relaxed, and free of stress. If you keep your coach bus while touring the area, your bus and driver will make sure that you get to where you want to go safely and on time.

Taking a vacation, field trip, church trip, or educational tour with a coach tour company is reliable and economical, too.

What are you waiting for? Read on to learn everything you need to know to rent a coach bus for your next group journey.

Booking Coach Bus Tours

Booking a coach bus tour is easy. First, you need to think about how many people will be traveling and where you are headed. If you just need the bus to take you somewhere and drop you off for a few days, that is a different situation than booking a bus for the entire trip.

Consider how far the bus will need to go, and how many stops it will need to make and at what times. Are you chartering a bus locally, or will it be taking you quite a distance? When you call bus companies for quotes, they will ask you these questions before preparing a quote for you.

Once you have collected some quotes, decide what bus company is best for you. After you have selected one, the company will send you a contract. You will sign this contract and pay a deposit, but some bus companies require the full payment ahead of time.

A few days or a week before your trip, your bus company will send you the professional driver’s information. You can touch base with him and her to get to know each other, set expectations and organize plans as a team.


When you get quotes for coach bus tours, you may be surprised at the cost at first. However, when you step back and think about it, you will see that the price is actually an excellent deal when you compare it to air travel or individual taxis.

If you are chartering a bus locally, the bus will be rented to you for a block of time at a flat rate. However, if your group is traveling quite a distance, you will instead be charged by the mile.

Local coach bus charters like San Diego’s mibtransportation.com, usually charge between $125-150 per hour and require a four or five-hour minimum. On the other hand, a long-distance charter may charge $3-5 per mile instead.

Again, this may seem like a lot at first, but if you divide the total by the number of seats on the bus, you will see that it is a good deal. Also, remember that the bus company must pay the driver, pay for gasoline and maintain the bus, too.

Happy Trails

No matter where you are headed, you will be happy with your decision to look into coach bus tours. It is one of the easiest, safest and most stress-free forms of travel. You and your party will have a blast on the open road with a professional driver at the wheel.

Arrive safe and sound and ready to have fun.
