So you’ve decided to rent a charter vehicle. Congratulations! It probably means that you have a fun and important occasion happening, one that a lot of your friends, relatives, or colleagues are going to get to participate in. Here at Professional Charter Services., we rent charter buses, mini buses, and other vehicles in the San Francisco area to groups of all shapes and sizes. However, if it’s your first time renting a charter bus, you may be wondering what type of vehicle you need. Here are our tips for choosing the vehicle that will fit your group perfectly.

Gather the details about your group

One of the most important things to know about your group is the number of people who are going. This will guide you to narrow down your choices to a vehicle that contains the minimum number of seats. However, you should also gather and consider any other pertinent details about the group that might affect what charter vehicle you take. For instance, think of the answers to questions like these:

  • What is the purpose of the group?
  • Do they need and expect the highest-caliber accommodations, or will a more economy vehicle suit them just fine?
  • Do you have any children in the group?
  • Do you have any people who will need special accommodations (such as wheelchair accessibility)?

Knowing these details upfront will save you time and headaches in the long run, as they will help to prevent you from making a choice that later turns out to be inappropriate for your needs.

Know How Much Flexibility You Have In Your Budget

The longer your trip, the more difficult it is for people to sit on a bus, and if you have a few extra seats, it can provide your guests a welcome change of seating if they get tired and cramped. However, choosing a bus that’s much larger than the size of your group will inevitably affect the price of your transportation. Also, if you have numbers of people whose RSVP isn’t confirmed and you’re not sure if they’re coming until the last minute, it might occur to you to try to get a bus that’s one step larger than you actually need, just in case those people need a seat after all. However, you’ll need to know what your budget can accommodate so that you can determine whether that is a viable option.
