Sample Trip Quotes

To give you a ballpark idea, here are some sample quotes for requests we’ve gotten from our customers:

Example #1:

A middle school in Dallas is planning an end-of-year trip for the 6th grade science classes to visit the Dallas Zoo. There are 4 classes with 25 students each, so about 100 students total who need transportation. The teachers want an air conditioned bus with plenty of room that also has wheelchair accessibility, since one student uses a wheelchair. After getting quotes, they decide to rent two 47-passenger charter buses for the trip at a rate of $140/hour. The trip is scheduled to leave at 9am and return by 3pm, so they estimate needing the buses for about 6 hours. That brings the total cost to $1,680 for the two charter bus rentals. With 100 students divided over the two buses, it comes out to around $17 per student. The teachers add an extra 10% tip for the drivers, bringing the grand total to $1,848. The charter buses provide a comfortable and convenient way for the entire 6th grade to visit the Dallas Zoo together.

Example #2:

A corporate event planner at a large technology company in Dallas is organizing an awards banquet for the sales team. She wants to arrange transportation for the 120 attendees staying at various hotels in the area so they can relax and enjoy the open bar. She decides to book a 56-passenger charter bus to shuttle the group to and from the event venue, which costs $165 per hour. She books the bus for 5 hours total – 2 hours before the event for pickup from the hotels, 2 hours during the event for any transportation needs, and 1 hour after to return guests to their hotels. At $165 per hour, the total cost comes out to $825. She also tips the driver 10% for excellent service, adding $82.50. So the total cost to provide convenient transportation for her 120 person corporate event is $907.50, which comes out to just $7.56 per person. The charter bus allows her team to avoid driving or expensive rideshares, and have peace of mind with a professional driver during their celebration.

Example #3:

The varsity football team at Highland Park High School is traveling from University Park to Dallas for the state championship game. The coaches want a comfortable and reliable bus for the 45 minute drive, so they decide to rent a charter bus. Knowing they need room for the team, coaches, and equipment, they select a 56 passenger charter bus. The rental company quotes them $150 per hour, with a 5 hour minimum. That means their base rate is $750 for the day. They’ll need the bus from 7am-7pm, so the total comes to $1,200. The coaches add a 10% tip for the driver, bringing their grand total to $1,320. Dividing by the 40 people traveling, it comes out to only $33 per person roundtrip. The coaches feel the charter bus is affordable, especially considering it includes bottled water, DVD players, and peace of mind that everyone will arrive safely and on time.

Example #4:

A group of friends in Dallas are planning a bachelor party weekend. The groom-to-be wants to go bar-hopping in the city, but stay safe. His 10 groomsmen rent a 25-passenger party bus in Dallas to shuttle them around for the night. They are quoted $150 per hour for their Dallas party bus rental. The group needs transportation from 8 PM to 2 AM, for a total of 6 hours. This brings their total rental cost to $900. They also tip their party bus driver 10% at the end of the night, adding another $90 to the overall cost. The party bus provides a safe and fun night out for the bachelor party. Having a designated driver allows them to fully enjoy bar-hopping in Dallas. Split between the 10 guys, the cost comes out to only $99 each. Much cheaper than taking Ubers or taxis all night long. The party bus provides a unique experience for their special night out.

Example #5:

A couple is getting married in Dallas, Texas. Their guest list is 120 people and they plan on getting married on a Saturday. As they begin planning logistics, they realize there are some gaps in group transportation that can be tricky. Their reception is going to be at a different location than the ceremony venue, the bride and groom need reliable transportation for their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the reception venue has limited parking options for all the cars. They decide to rent two 25-passenger minibuses in Dallas for their bachelor and bachelorette parties in order to have a designated driver and enjoy the night to their heart’s content. The minibuses are able to pick them up directly at their hotel for a night out on the town, and they each rent a bus for their parties from 8 PM to 2 AM. The quote for their Dallas minibus rentals is $125 each per hour, since they are in the same city, and they are quoted for a total of $1,500 per bus, or $3,000 for both of them. Because each wedding party has 15 members, the cost per passenger is only $100 each, which is less than most Uber rides with more flexibility. They also decide to rent a 56-passenger charter bus for the day of the wedding to provide shuttle service for some of the out-of-town guests to the ceremony, and from the ceremony to the reception to make up for the reception venue’s lack of parking. They rent the charter bus at a rate of $140 per hour from 12 PM to 6 PM, totaling up to $840. Their total for all three bus rentals added up to $3,840 for the weekend, and they tip their drivers 7% each for a job well done, adding about $135 to their overall cost.
