Charter bus driver safely preparing his bus for the next trip

There are many reasons you might rent a charter bus. Whether it’s for your wedding party, a school trip, or a sports team, there are certain things you must know before hiring a charter bus rental company. With a large group of people in the vehicle, it is important to ask the right questions to ensure you get to your destination safely. Make sure you know as much as you can about the company you are looking to hire before hopping onboard.

Here are a few important questions to ask a charter bus rental company!

What Type of Buses are Available?

Ask the charter bus company about the condition, size, and age of the bus or buses they have. Buses typically range in size from 20 to 56 passengers, so quotes can be changed to fit the size of your group. The amenities in Motor Coaches can also vary drastically. Look into the important amenities, such as Wi-Fi, onboard restroom, wood floors, PA system, TVs, and satellite radio. Ask the company if the vehicle is available to be seen in person or if you can request a particular vehicle.

What Type of Training Do You Have in Place for Your Drivers?

A reliable bus company should have ongoing training programs, extra safety training, and random drug testing.

What is Your Safety Record?

Has the charter bus rental company had an accident or injuries since being in business? How does the U.S. Department of Transportation rate the company? Visit their site for more information on each company’s rating.

What Separates Your Company from Other Bus Rental Companies?

A company should be able to tell you why they are different from the competition. Ask how long the company has been in business and its service level. Do they have someone answering the phones 24 hours a day? Do they guarantee the on-time arrival of their vehicles? Many motorcoach companies close at 5 pm and do not answer their phones after that. Make sure you understand this if you need to contact the company for last-minute changes or if you have questions.
