"I can’t rave enough about my experience with Pullium Travel. It was one of the best decisions I could have made while making very last minute arrangements for a night out in Atlantic City to celebrate my birthday with a group of 12. It allowed us all to relax and enjoy ourselves more knowing that we had a professional chauffeur behind the wheel. From the very beginning Keith was pleasant and professional. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a great evening, even made good suggestions about where to “dine and play” for the night. He arrived on time and allowed us to decorate the van with balloons and other party decor. He provided an AWESOME entertainment package for us to enjoy during our ride. The 40” tv played live sports for those keeping up with the Final 4 college games, and the amazing sound system connected to his personal tablet played ALL the latest and greatest music options!!! (You can connect your own music if you’d like). All this while the optional, multi color track lighting subtly danced above our heads adding nice ambiance to the evening. My guests and I were so pleased with the smooth ride in the Mercedes Benz Sprinter. It seated 12 of us adults comfortably, and though we could have squeezed in 1 or 2 more, we found this to be our comfort zone. Children and more petit adults may be able to load in a little more. There’s a deep cooler for ice and drinks in the back as well as ample cup holders throughout. You can’t put a price tag on peace of mind, safety, or great quality customer service, but the service this gentleman provides is worth more than what he charges. He is very affordable. You can tell he loves what he does, and he’s very good at it. If I could add 1 suggestion, it would be a very small, funny one. Please get a step stool to further assist the ladies wearing heels or a dress, or even those who are not as agile as they once were. Although we do appreciate the helping hand from a strong gentleman, it would be nice to not have to step up or down so high. 😊 Keep doing what your doing! I’m going to recommend you to everyone in need of the service you provide. I’m already planning another evening out. You’ll be hearing from us soon. THANKS AGAIN!!!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is in a party bus?

A party bus can be a fun and safe way to transport a group of people to or from an event. A party bus can be anything from a retrofitted school bus complete with disco lights, to an upscale shuttle service, to a stretch Hummer with a full bar. What is inside a party bus depends on the company you hire and what you are looking for. Many party buses have bars in them, complete with glassware, ice bins and mini fridges. Often party buses have festive lighting like strobe lights, black lights, dimmable lighting and track lighting on the floor. A party bus usually has loudspeakers in the back for en route dancing and may even have a dancing pole in the center. Some states require seat belts in party buses and decree that all passengers must be seated when the vehicles are moving, so there must be a seat for each passenger. To make sure you know what you are paying for, request photos of the inside and outside of the exact vehicle you are hiring. Also make sure you have all fees and details of what is and is not covered in a written contract.

How much do you tip for a party bus?

When you rent a party bus, it’s industry standard to tip the driver 15 percent to 20 percent of the rental cost. Some rental companies include a gratuity for the driver as a line item on the bill, while others leave tipping to the discretion of the passengers. Often party bus drivers are employees of the rental company, and are not seeing most of the money you paid to hire the ride for the night. You should consider the tip as a standard part of your total party bus price. The job of the party bus driver is to keep you and the other passengers safe, ensure your comfort, and get you to your destinations on time (barring outside factors like weather or unpredicted traffic). Party bus drivers are usually the ones who stock and prep the bus with ice, drinks, and other requested items before picking you up. They are also usually tasked with cleaning the vehicle after you and your guests are done for the night. Ask your rental company whether a tip is included in the quoted price, and be sure to be prepared with cash or the ability to tip by credit card after the event. Of course, tipping is not required (unless it is a written part of a contract you agreed to), and if you had problems with the driver, you don’t have to tip. But if you had a nice time, consider tipping well. And if your guests were extra rowdy and messy, add a few extra dollars to your tip to acknowledge the driver’s extra work cleaning up after you.

How much does it cost to rent a party bus?

Party bus prices vary based on the size of party bus you want, the time of day and day of the week you need, and the length of time that you want to rent the bus. The national average price to rent a party bus is $530-$700. Party bus prices can also be affected by where in the country you live. Bigger cities, like New York, have higher fees for insurance, licensing and tolls than a smaller town might, plus a higher cost to do business, so party bus prices will typically be higher than in smaller cities.

The size and luxury of the party bus you want will affect the price. For example, a 10-passenger vehicle could cost $100 per hour, a 14-passenger vehicle could cost $125 per hour, and a 20-passenger vehicle could cost $150 per hour. Party bus prices will also be dictated by the season or holidays. Rental on New Year’s Eve will be much more expensive than on a Tuesday afternoon in November. Most rental companies have a minimum number of hours you must rent, often starting around four hours. The longer you rent, the higher the price. The distance you travel can also affect cost. For example, a driving tour through wine country can cost more than a bar-hopping party through town — even for the same number of hours — due to the additional fuel required to drive the longer distance. Messy party guests can also increase your party bus price. Broken glass, major spills, or damage to the vehicle’s interior or exterior will all be billed to the customer. A company may have a base rate of $150 for excessive cleaning, plus additional charges for actual damage.
