29 Jun 4 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before You Rent a Party Bus
Renting a party bus is great for so many occasions, like bachelor(ette) parties, wine tours, prom night, etc. Before you go ahead and rent a party bus for your special occasion, make sure you ask yourself the following questions.
What size party bus do I need?
The first question you need to ask yourself is, “What size party bus do I need?” The best way to figure this out is to determine how many people you want to try to fit on the bus. Get a final headcount of the people who plan to ride and then tell the rental company. Party buses vary in size, and they will be able to help you pick the right one for your party size.
Where do I want to go?
This may seem like an obvious question, but it’s still an important one because most party bus rentals make multiple stops in one night. Maybe you decide that you want to have dinner before you go to the concert, or maybe you want to go to the bar before you get to the game. You need to decide these things so you can tell the driver and they can plan the route for the night.
When do I want to rent the party bus?
Again, this one may seem obvious, but it requires thoughtful planning. There are certain times of the year where a party bus may be harder to rent, like during prom or wedding season. If you can be flexible with the date, choose a time when the limo business is slower. One way to ensure that you will get your rental when you want it is to book far enough in advance. This is especially important if you have an inflexible date, like a concert that has been booked for months and will not change.
How much should I tip the chauffeur?
The budget must be a part of your planning when you’re renting a party bus, and the chauffeur tip needs to go in that budget. A 20% tip of your total bill is a pretty standard amount to tip your driver. If they exhibited excellent service, feel free to tip more than that.
There are roughly 20,309 limousine and taxi services located across the United States. Before you contact one to rent a party bus, make sure you ask the questions listed above. When you can answer them all, you’re ready to start planning an awesome party!
