Making the Most of Your Party Bus
A great transportation choice for events such as bachelor parties, weddings, hen parties or any other event is a party bus. A party bus allows you to start the party before you get there, and can even be hired as the main party venue – travelling along a pre-determined route as you get your party in full swing. For the best value for money, we’ve got a few tips on how you can make the most our of your party bus while you have it.
Plan Your Route
Is your trip simply to get you from point A to point B? Or do you have a few stops planned along the way? It’s a good idea to plan your route and itinerary before booking so that you can let the rental company know in advance. This ensures that your chauffeur knows what to expect and you don’t get surprised with fuel charges.
Choose the Perfect Party Bus
When considering your party bus hire in Essex or beyond, you need to ensure that the vehicle you get matches your event. Be sure to check the details of the party bus you want with the rental companies so you know exactly what the amenities, extras, capacity and rates for the bus are. It’s also a good idea to ask if you can inspect the vehicle before you book and again before you set off; check all the fittings and electrics and be sure to inform the rental company of any imperfections you find.
Make your Reservations
Book your reservation at least 30 days in advance of when you need the party bus, and confirm your booking 5-7 days before the event. Even when your event has no flexibility (such as weddings), it’s a good idea to book up to a year in advance to ensure you get what you want – especially in summer.
The point of a party bus is to party, right? So talk to the rental company about their food and drink policies to find out if they have packages that supply food and drink, and if they’ll let you bring your own.
Choose the Music
Some companies might offer you radio on the party bus, or other music packages. If you’d like to bring your own music onto the bus, talk with your rental company in advance to ensure they have the docking stations needed.
