If you are planning a group trip, such as a church, club or family reunion trip to Galveston Island, you may be wondering about the best way to travel. Although you may find many travel options, including airline travel, personal vehicles or bus lines in Texas, your best option may just be a charter bus.
Charter bus services enable your entire group to travel in one vehicle. You aren’t paying for multiple airline tickets or fuel for multiple vehicles. The per-person rate for charter bus travel is significantly lower than other methods of travel for large groups.
Because no one in your group is driving, you can all participate along the road. You can encourage games, sing-a-longs and other fun activities. You can also move around and sit with different people. For example, those who want to play a hand of poker can sit together at one end of the bus, while those who want to watch a movie can sit in another area.
Bus travel also allows you to sightsee along the way. You can compile a list of sites you each want to see and make multiple stops along the way to your destination.
It is much easier to have everyone in one place on the trip without having to book individual tickets for everyone. Bus drivers receive specialized defensive driving training, increasing safety. In addition, you don’t have to decide who will drive, how many cars you need to take and who will ride with whom. Charter travel allows you to book one bus for everyone. In addition, you can wait to make sure everyone is on the bus before you leave and at every stop because you are not beholden to someone else’s schedule. Finally, you won’t worry about losing drivers or getting lost yourself if you are all on the same bus.
If you are planning a trip for a large group of people, consider chartering a bus.
