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 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.

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.

We had a fantastic time taking 17 8th graders to a couple DFW haunted houses. The party bus arrived on time, and our driver, Patrick, was great. We will definitely use J&B the next time we need a party bus. The owner Jason is also very responsive and quickly answered all my questions. Thank you!

I rented a party bus with this company and they are fantastic. If I were you I wouldn’t go with anyone else these are the guys to go with. They are very responsive, nice and respectful. Torian is such a gentleman he made sure to help all the ladies get in and out of the bus he most definitely went above and behind for our party. I would most definitely rent with these guys again !!!

What an amazing party bus! Booked them for my daughter quinceañera as a surprise for the court. Loved that they were teen friendly and easy going. The bus driver was willing to do anything that we requested to entertain the teens. My daughter said he was so nice and funny and made her day even better. We would definitely book again!

A++++++++++++++++++++++!!!!!!! We hired Kurt for our bachelorette party on 10-1-2016 and he was just absolutely amazing! We could not have asked for a better experience! The bus is beautiful, the service was beyond outstanding and the Bachelorette was so surprised and happy! I will definately only use Kurt for any future limo bus services. Thank you for making our night go so smoothly and for tolerating the craziness.

I rented the party bus to celebrate my daughters 9th Birthday along with her cheer team. They ABSOLUTELY enjoyed the experience. I had NO problems with this company. We agreed on the amount of the services, pick up and drop off were on time. No complaints and a very memorable birthday experience for my daughter and her friends.

I would highly recommend this service to anyone. The price is the best price I've seen so far and they offer free pre game shots! Thank you Platinum Experience for giving me a Platinum Experience.

I am beyond impressed with this company. I am a pretty skeptical person and have booked several different party buses with different companies before. Usually the drivers are not kind and appear to hate driving around a bunch of rowdy passengers. That could not be more of an opposite experience with this company. Robert was extremely professional and easy to work with in making sure all our needs were met. We rented this bus for a 5 year college homecoming reunion game. About 1 week before the game they changed the game times from noon to 7. Robert was so generous to not let that be a big deal and allowed us to make that large of a time change last minute. Carlos our driver was there early, was flexible and very patient with our large group. He had no problem with making frequent bathroom stops and even got one of the passengers medicine when she got car sick. Not to mention he was a cool guy who engaged in our group and basically became our photographer as well. Anything we needed he was there to cater to and did it with such a sweet positive attitude. The bus itself was perfect. We had about 17 large grown adults with multiple coolers and fit perfectly. The sound system works great and has the ability for passengers to dj and charge their phone. Overall this company did such an amazing job and made that weekend one to remember. I don't think I would be able to recommend any other party bus company/will not use any other company because this one is the best! Thank you again!!!!!
