Bus Chartering Myths


Bus Chartering Myths

To some people, chartering a bus may sound like a daunting task of coordination, or bus charters are only for long trips, and that they are uncomfortable. These three myths are totally false and we will explain why.

Myth #1

Chartering a bus is a difficult task

Setting up a bus charter is actually a very simple task. Quite the opposite of what many people think it is. There are only a few pieces of information that a charter bus company such as Nationwide Bus Charter will need from you:

  1. Your starting point
  2. Your destination
  3. Number of people you need to transport
  4. Dates

This is it. Only 4 pieces of information and your bus charter company will take care of the rest for you in a timely fashion.

Myth #2

Bus charters are only for long trips

Yes, you can certainly charter a bus for a long cross-country trip, or for a trip lasting several hours, but you can also arrange a bus charter for a very short trip. Many people will charter a bus to take a large group of people to a local destination for a day trip lasting less than 12 hours. For example, you can charter a bus to take 50 people from New York City to the casinos in Atlantic City for the day departing New York City at 9 am, arriving in Atlantic City at 11 am, and then departing Atlantic City back to New York City at 6 pm.

Another popular choice for a bus charter is to transport a large group of people from an Airport to a nearby Hotel, or even for a business to get their employees from their office to a nearby conference center for a meeting. The possibilities are endless.

Myth #3

Bus Charters are uncomfortable

This myth could not be further from the truth. Your charter bus company would never put your passengers in a position where they are uncomfortable in any way, that’s first and foremost. They will make sure they pair you and your group with a bus that can comfortably accommodate your passengers. Bus charters, especially large ones, are equipped with large plush comfortable seats that recline and have a footrest for extra comfort. They are also in most cases equipped with WiFi internet access, onboard entertainment systems, bathrooms, air conditioning, and heat. The environment on a bus charter is also much more comfortable than being on an airplane. The seats are larger, you can move around, there are fewer people, and often times there are built-in stops planned for people to get off, stretch their legs and get some real food.
