The cost of renting your party bus is based on several factors. Client’s are not only paying for the bus, but also for the driver’s time. We should also take into consideration the time being spent on preparing the bus for its departure and cleaning it after the party. For instance, it usually takes one and a half hours for the driver to prepare before picking up clients. With this in mind, we can understand that a 1 hour trip in the vehicle requires almost 3 hours of work for the driver.
Some other factors that affect the cost of renting a party bus include:
Location is a big factor in determining the cost of renting a party bus. There are additional charges if the vehicle is required to travel long distances or if there are parking charges involved. Some bus companies include a 30-mile service vicinity as its base cost. Generally, the cost will increase if the driver is required to travel more than 30 miles to reach the customer.
2. Number of travel hours
The length of the ride affects the total price of the party bus rental. Most bus rental companies provide a four-hour time block for their services. Therefore, even if the customer only needs an hour for their event, they will be charged for four hours. If the customer requires the driver to take them to and from different locations, they would still need to pay for the driver’s time even if passengers are not on board.
3. Time of the day
Reservations in the evening may be more costly because demand for party buses increases after 5 PM. You may ask customer service about the right time to protect your rental when making reservations.
4. Type of party bus you are going to choose
The type of bus, as well as the number of passengers you are going to invite, can affect the overall costs of renting a party bus. Party buses come in a number of varieties including luxury buses, limo-buses, stretch limousines, and many more. Most contain special features like sound systems, lights, and DVD players. The election of certain features may increase the costs of your rental. In addition to this, you should also factor in the cost of gas.
5. The day you are going to avail
According to the bus party companies, Saturdays are when they make almost 80 percent of their sales. It is likely that therefore the cost of renting a party bus will be higher on the weekends.
It’s important to be aware of the factors that may affect the cost of your rental. From birthday parties to wedding celebrations, party buses bring a fresh opportunity for creating exciting and memorable life moments.
