How to Charter a Bus




At K&V Limo, we offer group transportation services for a wide variety of occasions. Whether it’s your family reunion, a convention, your wedding, or a political rally, when you need to transport a large group of people from point A to point B, chartering a bus is an excellent option. However, if you have never hired anyone for group transportation services, you might be at a loss for where to start. To make it easier for you, we have compiled a step-by-step guide to chartering a bus.

 

Step One: Determine Your Itinerary

Before you find the right bus for you, you need to know what your needs are. Know the size of your group, how many people you need to transport, the destinations where you will be going, and the times they need to be picked up and dropped off. Also consider what features are important to you. Does the bus need to be a wheelchair accessible vehicle? Lastly, consider your budget. Having a cost in mind before selecting a bus charter company will help you determine whether or not it is the right choice for you.

 

Step Two: Do Your Research

Next, you want to look into your options. When choosing a transportation company to charter a bus from, it’s important that the company is insured and that all the vehicles have passed inspection within the last year. In addition, all coach bus drivers must have a commercial driver’s license (CDL). It’s also a good idea to read online reviews to make sure it is a reputable company. At K&V Limo, we operate with an approved safety rating from the DOT, MD Public Safety Commission, and the DOD, and we have all of the required insurance and permits for both our vehicles and our drivers. Safety is our priority.

 

Step Three: Get a Quote

Once you have found a charter bus company that meets standard safety requirements and has a good reputation, you can now solicit a quote. K&V Limo offers a Quick Quote feature on our site that allows you to easily reach out to our team for a free estimate. You can also call in for a free estimate. When you speak to one of our team members, we will ask you all the relevant questions to make sure we get the information we need.

Just as we need to ask questions to get the relevant information, if there are any questions you need answered before you sign a contract with us, we will do so happily. We want to be fully transparent with our group transportation services, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you need answered.

 

Step Four: Sign a Contract

Once you have determined you want to charter a bus through K&V Limo, we will have a contract written that you will need to sign to secure your booking. In addition, we will need your full payment 30 days prior to your reservation.

 

Step Six: Keep Communication Open

Signing a contract doesn’t mean the end of our relationship. We keep the lines of communication open so that if you have any questions that come up as your reservation date approaches, you can get the answers you need. We will be sure to provide you with vehicle and driver information prior to your reservation, and we will do everything in our power to keep communication clear.
