When it comes to the excitement an unusual trip or journey can provide, you will not go wrong when you opt to hire a double decker bus to treat your family, colleagues or friends on a day out somewhere, especially if you want to entertain a group that is simply too large for any form of the usual transport one normally associates with group outings.
Of course it does not make financial sense to hire a double decker bus for smaller groups who can easily be transported to and from any venue, unless the host or hostess has a budget that allows them to do this.
Because booking a whole bus for a private group is such an unusual event, it promises to not only entertain them for the day but to also let them leave with special memories they can cherish for many years after the event. These parties and trips often work better during summer months when the chances of rain spoiling the party are much less. Most people feel that it is a better option to hire a double decker bus with an open – not closed – top. Of course the weather also plays a role.
Think of a day out somewhere in nature which could include a picnic at a beautiful spot. Then there are other examples such as taking the whole group to a pop concert, a football game in the city or simply a sightseeing trip to some beautiful places of one’s choice. Just think of the fun they’ll have when they wave at the whole world going by, knowing that those they’re waving at are looking on with a little bit of envy!
It is also not uncommon these days to hire a double decker bus for an event such as a wedding to transport guests and even the bride and groom to and from the church or the venue where the dinner or party will be hosted.
More benefits to taking one’s friends on a trip on a double decker bus for hire include some and more of the following: playing music as loudly as you want and not being a disturbance to others, having drinks and eats in privacy – in fact catering for your group on the bus, if the hiring company allows that. You don’t even have to stop for refreshments. The party goes on undisturbed.
These buses are quite popular and anyone who wants to book one is advised to ensure way ahead of time that the double decker bus they want to hire is available at the time they want it for. One would approach companies whose business it is to make these available to the public. If one lives in a big city with a number of choices, it may be easier to look at a number of companies to compare prices too. Some companies, depending on availability and budget, will also send their bus and driver to an area which they may not normally serve.
Very often hiring companies will accommodate special requests by clients if it is at all practical. They may arrange for a trip with a few stops at places of interest; they may make special arrangements for music to be played during the journey; they may also arrange for specific seating arrangements on the bus if it is a practical request.
It is advisable that the client makes sure of all administrative issues before the bus arrives on the day it was booked for. Make sure you do not bring more guests than are allowed, ensure you have arranged everything in terms of payment upfront and that all documentation has been taken care of.
Life is made up of lovely moments and memories – one such memory is a trip on a double decker bus. Ask anyone who has had the privilege of enjoying a fun trip on one of these!
