Chartering a Bus for Your Next Family Vacation

Chartering a Bus for Your Next Family Vacation

There’s nothing quite like a vacation, especially when your family is involved. Family vacations are a rare opportunity to get together and make new memories with your loved ones whom you may not see on a frequent basis. While you may typically pack in a larger car to get to your family vacation, consider chartering a bus instead.

Family bus trips teach you to enjoy the journey in addition to the destination. If it’s your turn to plan the next family trip, consider making it a family bus trip instead of the typical, cookie-cutter family vacation. At Chicago Motor Coach, our buses are all extremely clean, comfortable and spacious so you and your family can enjoy every moment of your much-deserved trip.

Benefits of Chartering a Bus for Your Family Vacation

There are a variety of benefits when you opt for a bus rental for your family trip that you may not have considered. We’ve compiled just a few to help exemplify how wonderful your experience on our charter bus can be.

  • Experience a New Destination Each Year

Choose the Location

Let’s face it; going to the same vacation spot year after year can get a little boring. Having a routine and knowing what to expect is always a good thing, but chartering a bus for your family vacation is an easy way to see new places that you haven’t been to before.

Maybe you have spent the last few family vacations going to the same local park and having a picnic together. Or maybe you always travel to the same local monument to walk around and enjoy the scenery. This year, consider the new, exciting memories you can make by traveling to local or even national monuments that you haven’t been to before.

Traveling to new destinations with your family will inherently create new memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Keep Your Whole Group Together

Although it sounds a bit cliché, traveling is as much about the journey as it is the destination. Your previous family vacations may have consisted of each family member meeting at the destination on an agreed-upon date and time.

Traveling together also eliminates the need for each family member to find an individual parking spot at the end destination. This alone helps reduce stress and allows you and your family to focus on quality time with family instead of worrying about logistics.

When you choose a charter bus for your family vacation, you get to enjoy each other’s company for a longer period of time. Kick your heels up and enjoy our wide variety of amenities such as flat screens, DVD players, CD players and PA systems. Plus, we also provide access to Wi-Fi, device plugs and 5-star safety features.

  • No Airport Stress

Family Trip on a Bus

If any previous family vacations have consisted of flying, you know exactly how stressful it can be. Airports are crowded, chaotic, and it requires that everyone in your family arrives early enough to check in on time.

Skip the airport hassle and opt for a family charter bus instead. Because your family trip is a private event, you don’t have to worry about missing any flights or leaving any family members behind. Breathe easy knowing that we will accommodate you and your passengers to ensure you all have an enjoyable trip.

  • A Cost-Efficient Way to Travel

With so many people involved in family vacations, it’s important to consider the cost-effectiveness of each method of transportation when making your decision. Traveling by plane or by individual cars can quickly add up.

On the other hand, traveling by charter bus is a great way to save money, as it is a very cost-effective way to travel.

How to Prepare for Your Trip

If you feel overwhelmed by trying to plan your trip, know that it is a straightforward process that can be completed with a few simple steps.

  • Establish Who’s Coming

Establish Who's Coming for Family Bus Trip

First thing’s first, you’ll need to figure out what family members are coming on your trip. Make sure to send out invitations with plenty of time in advance to give them time to prepare. Ideally, you will keep a running list of people who have sent back an RSVP saying they will come.

  • Choose the Location

As soon as you know who is joining you, you’ll be able to develop a better idea of the type of destination that you can go to. Factor in the needs of every attendee when choosing your end destination.

If you have elderly family members joining you on the trip, consider a closer location to make traveling easier on them. Or, if kids are present, choose a destination where they can safely run around and enjoy themselves.

At Chicago Motor Coach, the opportunities on where you can go are endless. Whether you want to go somewhere local or out of state, our team will make accommodations for you to fit your needs.

  • Pack & Prepare

As your trip approaches, begin packing your essentials to ensure you don’t forget everything. You can even consider making a universal packing list for your family trip to make the process less stressful for everyone who will be joining you.

Don’t forget to pack snacks and other portable food items, too! Road trips and great snacks go hand in hand, so prepare accordingly for an enjoyable ride.
