Wow!! I had never rented a limo before, not even for my marriage, but I figured our 30th anniversary was a good enough reason and it was, after all Houston (glam and Galleria, etc!), so I can't compare ARC Limo to other services. That being said, if you KNOW a company is the best at what they do, why waste time looking and comparing for what you think may be a better deal? I can say hands down, these guys (Mr. Nick and Mr. Mike) are on top of their game! As you may have noted from other reviews, they typically show up early (in our case about 10 minutes) so there won't be any "awkward" waiting around for your ride moments. Since my wife didn't know about it, Mr. Mike was perfect as he texted me of his arrival and made sure, as my wife exited our hotel lobby, that she realized the limo was just for her. Of course she saw it as she was leaving but figured she'd keep walking past it but he opened the door at just the right moment and motioned for her to get in, when she turned around to look at me with a BIG smile on her face. Also, since we don't drink champagne or soda, they substituted a high quality chardonnay and sparkling water without batting an eye - no extra charge. The limo itself and sound system (they had a wire for my iPhone already plugged in and ready to go) were top notch - clean, comfortable and very classy. TIP: Send them your complete itinerary for the evening with times and addresses and you won't even need to take time away from your fun giving instructions along the way - makes it seem like you live this lifestyle all of the time! Oh yeah - interesting twist - when we arrived at our restaurant (rated #1 in Houston) , it had unexpectedly been temporarily shut down for sewer issues - what the?? No problem, our driver didn't bat an eye as we selected another place and promptly got us there in no time. After dinner, we surprised our son (in college in Houston) and his friends by stopping by to pick them up for an ice cream run - what fun they had (we couldn't keep a 10-person limo all to ourselves now could we?) The driver indulged the easily-amused college guys as they took turns filming him opening the limo door as they emerged as "king for a day" or whatever!?!? All said and done, it was a great time for everyone and I can highly recommend ARC!!

Excellent, professional, reliable and friendly town car service. Coming to Houston from Melbourne Australia I searched for an airport transfer service on the web and found Transgates recommended here on Thumbtack. I sent requests for quotes to 8 transfer services in the Houston area. Transgates were the only service to respond to my request so I made the reservation and was meet personally Jon from Transgates at Houston airport then conveyed very professionally and comfortably in a friendly manner to my accommodation in the West University area. The next day i was due to pick up a rental car at the Hertz depot in the Galleria area but after a call to tell them that I was coming was told that they did not have my vehicle (mix up in the booking) and it was still waiting for my collection at GBI airport. I called transgates on the off chance of booking a transfer at short notice back to the airport and was pleasantly surprised when I received a call from Jon that he would be able to oblige and drive me back to the airport between bookings. For this I was most grateful and Trangates are now on my "will always use in future list". Transgates provide and excellent service and one that I shall certainly recommend to others (and have already have done so!). Thanks Jon and Transgates team for the professional service that you provided. And also your assistance at short notice was very much appreciated.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
