Holiday Bus Chartering Tips


Holiday Bus Chartering Tips

With the holiday season officially underway, it’s a busy time of the year, albeit not as busy as it may have been in past years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this is where a bus charter comes into play. Bus charters offer people the ability to travel over the holidays in a very safe manner. A bus charter is a private bus that you can privately charter to transport you and your family to a specific destination. You control who is on your bus and when and where the bus goes. With that said, here are some tips for traveling safely around the holidays using a bus charter:

1. It’s Safe

Because it’s your bus charter, you control who is allowed on your bus. You can control who is on your bus charter knowing that they are healthy. Adding more safety and comfort, you can ask your bus charter company to make sure that the entire bus is sanitized before the start of your bus charter. Ensuring that your bus is sanitized will give you and your party another level of comfort that you will be traveling safely.

2. Book Early

Because there are only so many buses available and travel around the holiday’s dramatically increases, it’s recommended to book your bus charter early. Booking your bus charter early will ensure that you and your party can get to and from your destination at the time you want.

3. Check The Weather

Mother Nature can be very unpredictable and you will have a hard time trying to predict exactly what she’s going to do. Check up on the weather forecast on the days before and of your trip, so that you can plan for delays if you need to.

4. Get Comfortable

More likely than not, if you are chartering a bus, you are probably going a long distance, especially during the holidays, and you are going to want to be comfortable. Remember to dress comfortably for your trip and also remember to bring along something to keep you entertained such as an iPad, eReader, or a laptop. Don’t forget to also make sure your phone battery is fully charged. Depending on the bus you charter, your charter bus may include a built-in entertainment system so that your entire bus can be entertained. Some charter buses also have built-in WiFi systems for internet access on the go.

5. Bus Charters Are Not Just For Long-Distance Travel

Traveling for the holidays is not just about getting large families and groups together to visit loved ones that are far away, but also for friends and work colleagues as well. Nationwide Bus Charters can also charter a minibus for your office holiday party to take your co-workers to and from your company holiday party. They can even charter a large SUV for you and your friends to celebrate the holidays by going out for a night on the town and not having to worry about drinking and driving.

BONUS. Bus Charters Are Not Just For Long Trips

With the advent of COVID-19 people are looking for ways to enjoy everything the holiday season has to offer in a safe manner. Why not charter a bus with your friends and family for a trip to your favorite Christmas light display! You, your friends, and family can enjoy a night out of the house safely in a charter bus, mini-bus, or sprinter van and drive by, for example, the Dyker Heights Christmas Lights in Brooklyn, NY, or even enjoy a tour of the Magic of Lights at the PNC Arts Center in New Jersey. You will be able to ensure a safe, fun, and warm environment for your party.
