There is now an extremely high demand for party buses in the U.S. In fact, the demand has
never been higher. The party bus service is a thriving industry, and we’re here to help you
party like a rock star. People use party buses for proms, anniversaries, bachelor and
bachelorette parties, graduations, and much more. We realize that many of you who are
interested in renting a party bus, do not know what to look and ask for when renting a bus.
Additionally, many of you are confused as to what options are available, where you can find a
party bus in your city, and how to get the best bang for your buck.
There are a lot of resources available online about how to rent a party bus, however all of the
websites we’ve come across are not very user-friendly. Sometimes, you don’t even know
where to begin and those other sites can leave you even more confused than when you
arrived. Our goal is to make things as streamlined and as easy as possible for you to follow.
We want to walk you through the entire process so you can focus on getting your party on!
This is why we created this special report – to guide you and help you celebrate your special
occasion without the hassles. Party on!
Tip #1: Proof of insurance and permits
Most people overlook this aspect of renting a party bus. In all likelihood, they won’t need it,
but as the old saying goes, “It’s better to have something and not need it than need
something and not have it.” Party buses require inspections and Class B drivers who keep
daily logs. Make sure to check these items along with insurance and license number. This
number should be located on the front and back bumper.
Tip #2: Booking confirmation
After you sort out all the details, insist on receiving a booking confirmation that clearly
indicates which type of party bus you are renting, the agreed-upon rate, locations and times
for pick-up and drop-off, special requests, deposit amount and other relevant information.
Tip #3: Cancellation policy
Know what to expect if something unexpected occurs and you have to cancel your party bus
reservation. Most party bus companies will work with you to reschedule or charge a minimal
cancellation fee if you cancel before the dispatch of the party bus driver.
Tip #4: Food and Beverage
Part of the fun of renting a party bus is starting the party before you arrive at your special
event. Some companies allow you to bring your own drinks and food, while others provide it.
Check with the company about its policies and offerings for food and beverages.
Tip #5: Music
Even though most companies offer music (some even offer DJs), you may prefer to bring your
own music on your iPod or a CD. You want to discuss this preference in advance with the
Tip #6: Routes
Have it all planned out before you make a reservation. Are you going straight from Point A to
Point B or are you planning to make frequent stops at places along the way? You'll want to
inform the rental company and driver of your expected itinerary.
Tip #7: Price
Each company establishes its own fee structure, whether hourly or flat rate. Make sure you
understand any surcharges, such as for fuel, and any other associated costs. Make sure they
don't have any hidden fees that you will be hit with after the rental. Ask about the tip policy
and how much they charge if you go over your set time.
Tip #8: Amenities
Party buses are complicated vehicles with numerous amenities such as flat screen TVs, fiber
optic lighting, dancing poles, disco balls, etc. As a result of the partying that happens in these
buses, it isn't unusual for a few of these items to malfunction. When checking out the bus,
turn on every light and inspect each electronic device. If the bus is less than perfect, move on
or report the malfunctions so you're not liable for them; this may also allow you to negotiate a
Tip #9: Details
Some companies want to know more about your special event so they can arrange for
decorations (if any). Make sure you also have a good idea of how many people are riding,
the number of hours you expect to need service and the distance you expect to ride. To be in
on the safe side, just add a little extra, in terms of time and number of people.
Tip #10: Tip your driver
It's customary to tip the driver 18% to 20% of the base price. After all, he is making sure you
don't drive drunk and gets you to your desired locations while you party your ass off. Some
companies add a tip automatically to the price, while others leave the tipping to the customer.
If the company does not add the tip automatically, make sure you collect a tip stash from all
your friends so you can store the money away in a safe place before you spend it all.
