Whether you are one of the couple who wishes to book a suitable party bus for his/her guests on the wedding, or a guest itself who wishes to make arrangements for your group, you need to know certain important points relating the transports.
Of course, you already know that party buses are highly cheap, secure and superb means of travel with your group. However, did you know that you can save yet more of your overall travel costs when you keep certain factors in mind?
Yes, this is true.
When you hire a wedding limo service or a party bus to travel, the charges incurred by the service providers depend on certain factors such as:
- The number of guests
- The time of the year
- Difference between booking and traveling time
- The kind of area to travel to
- The type of vehicle
- The day of the week (most of the times)
- Extra services offered etc.
And it is important to keep all these factors well in your mind before you book your wedding party bus for the group.
How To Save Your Money:
Here are some of the steps which you can follow to save your party bus booking and travel costs a great deal:
- Be The Early Bird:
If you finally get to know a date for yours or someone else’s wedding, the first thing to do is prepare the list of those who are traveling and book a perfect party bus for them.
Vehicles booked pretty early will always be much cheaper than those which are booked close to the traveling date.
- Count The Members Of Your Group:
While booking a party bus, it is important to know the number of people who are traveling with you. And this is since party buses too occur in a number of sizes and you can get a suitable one according to your list of guests.
Count the travelers and if suitable, you can even book a minibus for your travels. Minibusses would always cost lesser than the larger ones.
Also, you can count the number of minors, toddlers, and pre-school children too to see if you need any special arrangements for them.
- Perform Suitable Research:
Look for the party bus service providers which are available in your region and the ones which are available on the due date.
Call them and get to know the kind and brand of party buses they offer. Also, get all the knowledge about the facilities offered by them, such as disco lights, drinks, and music players etc.
Also, there are certain vehicles such as exotic party buses, luxury coaches and SUV limos which tend to cost more. Therefore, the simpler your vehicle is, the more affordable it tends to be.
So if you want, you can also visit their place and have a look at the kind of vehicles they are offering. If they are worth the money you are about to invest, this is certainly a good deal to make.
- The Basis Of Charges:
Find out the method which is used to incur charges. For instance, do they provide vehicles on the hourly basis or you can book them for an entire day when required.
Also, do not forget to ask them about any extra taxes, additional charges or hidden charges etc. which might come as a surprise later.
Lastly, inquire whether you need to tip the driver and what would be the good tip.
All such factors might sound too small but add up to turn your traveling bills heftier.
- Booking On Dedicated Websites:
You need to find a party bus service that has its own dedicated website. From this, you can have a look at the options available for you and the charges for each.
Instead, if you book vehicles from any third-party website, this would always be a costly affair.
- Look For Seasonal Discount Coupons:
Go to the website of your party bus service and look for any seasonal discounts or offers which can cut your costs. You can also inquire about any such offers from the bus provider.
If you can get a seasonal rebate or discount on your charges, it would certainly be an advantageous deal.
- If You Are A Couple, Booking Buses:
If you need to book wedding party buses for guests in your wedding, you need to ponder over some of your decisions.
For instance, you can host the wedding and the reception at a single place, so that the guests do not need to travel to different places. With this, you can save a lot of your costs.
Also, if you have some guests from out of the town and you intend to book hotels for them, choose the closest possible hotels to the wedding venue.
Many of the party bus providers charge on a per-hour basis and having your hotels too far away will call for greater expenses.
- Licensed Drivers and Insured Vehicles:
Before you book the vehicle finally, make sure that the drivers have the necessary license and the vehicle has all the insurance covers required.
You never know, the absence of any such element could lead to some big troubles which might dig a hole in your bank account.
These are some of the best methods which you can use to save much of your expenses when booking a party bus for weddings or any other occasion.
And as aforementioned, traveling in a party bus is much, much easier and affordable than vans and coaches etc. Make sure you understand all the points above and turn your travel experience a pocket-friendly one.
