Party Bus Pricing and Prep: What Should You Know?

Did you know that you can purchase a party bus for any event, including but not limited to proms, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and birthday parties? A rental bus usually comes equipped with cushy seats, a few extendable tables, and some even have party lights. However, with all of these features, how much does a bus cost? 

Don’t worry, with this guide you can find out! We’ve investigated the average costs to see how you can save; that way, you can determine if a party rental is right for you. 

Now, are you ready to get this party started? Here’s a quick look at party bus rentals: 

What Affects the Cost of a Party Bus? 

When you book a party bus, there isn’t just a flat fee. The overall total is calculated by a number of contributing factors. Below are just a few of those factors: 

  • The number of hours  
  • The day of the week (weekends can be more expensive)
  • If the selected date is on a holiday 
  • Type of selected vehicle   
  • The number of selected passengers 
  • Any special requests like lighting and certain foods/drinks often come with an additional fee

What Is the Average Cost? 

As we mentioned previously, there are many factors that go into the cost of a party rental; however, to give you a better idea, a party bus, on average, costs around $200 an hour. Of course, that number could go up or down based on the extra services you choose to add. However, $200 an hour is the standard base price for a lot of companies. 

Although, that cost is not representative of the luxury service. If you want a luxury party rental, they cost about $700 to $900 per hour and can easily exceed $1,000.   

What Should You Bring? 

Now, every party bus is different, so before you bring outside items onto the bus, check with the company to make sure your items, whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic, are allowed.

With that said, most companies not only allow outside items on the bus but recommend it since it creates a more relaxed and fun atmosphere. In fact, some companies may even work with certain vendors allowing you to purchase certain food and drink items to have inside the party rental, at an extra cost, of course.

Thereby, bringing your own items, you’ll not only be saving money, but you’ll be adding to the party atmosphere. So don’t be shy, ask your friends what they like and go shopping for food and refreshments.
