We had an amazing time! The bus was perfect for our Bachelorette party, and our driver was so sweet. We ended up partying mostly on the bus because we were having a hard time finding clubs that were open. She picks us up as soon as we called even when it was only 2 mins after dropping us off. If I had to pick something to complain about, it would be that the dance pole is not bolted in, so it was a little wobbly. Other than that it was amazing. I will definitely be using this service again for my next event.

My, now Husband, and I used the Party Bus' services on Saturday May 20, 2017 for our wedding. The schedule(The Party Bus was 100% on time everywhere): 2:00pm picked up Groom and Groomsmen from a separate address from the Bride and Bridesmaids 2:25pm Grooms party dropped off at church 2:40pm Waiting for Bride and Bridesmaids at their preparation Hotel(the Tremont House) 2:55pm Bridal party dropped off at the church for ceremony 4:15pm Ceremony over, transported entire wedding party around the Strand Historic area in Galveston for wedding party photos with photographer 5:45 - 6:00pm took bride back to hotel for reception change and dropped Bride and Groom off at reception venue. Our wedding was in Galveston Texas and most other vehicles that we received quotes for were either too small for our needs or a little outside of our projected budget. We got a quote for The Party Bus and they delivered. The driver, Lamonte and his team were completely professional, punctual and definitely helped contribute to the festive atmosphere of our big day. We booked them for 3.5 hours but ran a little behind and they didn't even bring it up. We were sure to provide extra gratuity for them being so understanding and accommodating. We truly felt that they were more concerned with our satisfaction than their schedule - which takes away from any worry or concern on our wedding day. The vehicle was clean, and on a hot Galveston day in May, very cool. They came stocked with beverages to keep the wedding party cool and hydrated and even had a good sound system for my guys on the way to the church for the ceremony. I would highly recommend them for your event and if I have a need for any type of service like this in the future, they will be my first call for sure!

Unfortunately he was booked during the time that I needed, but he graciously gave me the names of a few other reputable rental locations to call. How gracious is that! I will definitely use his company if I need another party bus. Thanks a million!

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.
