Benefits Of Hiring A Private Bus Charter Service In Alberta


If you and your group are planning a trip to explore Alberta then nothing beats a private bus charter. Avoid being cramped in tiny seats for hours, getting lost, and all the hassles of planning the trip yourself. Private bus charters are the best option when groups look for serious fun and exploration.

There are many different ways to explore a region and how you go about it depends on a number of factors:

  • Your budget
  • The amount of time you have
  • What you want to see and do

The kind of travel we recommend avoiding is that which involves stress. Forget rental car paperwork, maps, worrying if there will be room for your luggage, concerns about road conditions etc. Instead consider that you could have a private bus at your disposal with a professional driver and everything you need to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Best of all the bus company can help plan your itinerary so you know that you've made the best choices with your limited time exploring. One of the greatest benefits to hiring a local bus charter company is the chance it gives you to learn about the area from a local. Whether you want to know historical facts or just simple day to day matters of routine, your driver can help.

When should you hire a private bus?

There are occasions when it really helps to hire a private bus company. These include:

  • When you have very little time. Business travelers have learned the value of a private bus charter when they have a short amount of time and still want to have a meaningful experience.
  • Anywhere with a reputation for being remote or having challenging road conditions means that a private bus charter company can help keep you safe and out of tough spots.
  • When you are visiting a particularly popular location. A private bus company will know the tricks and tactics to help you get the most out of a heavily visited location by going before or after the crowds.
  • When you want to hand over the boring logistics. The hassle of obtaining tickets, timing reservations, checking departure hours and figuring out the details is unnecessary when you hire a private bus charter.
  • When there is a language barrier. When you don't speak the local language hiring a professional bus company can be invaluable.
  • While a majority of the private bus charter companies are registered with the relevant authorities in Alberta, it always pays to be vigilant. Do your homework, try to read reviews and check their websites to have an idea about their level of service / fleet.

    I agree, there are a lot more reasons to hire a local bus company than most people would immediately think about when planning a vacation or company trip. After all, since it is a local bus for the area you are visiting they will know all the tips and tricks for getting around the quickest way. It’s also helpful for transporting a large amount of people if you are traveling with a large group.

  2. Tomas Killington says:

    When traveling with my extended family, ground transportation is always the most stressful part. I never considered the fact that a charter bus comes with a professional driver that can navigate road conditions and busy streets. That seems like a great way to alleviate stress during a family vacation.

    My son is going on a gold trip down south for a tournament with his high school team this summer. I never knew that bus company can help plan your itinerary so you know that you’ve made the best choices with your limited time. I am no professional, but I would imagine this may help them get the most out of the trip if they use this option!

    That’s a great point you make about how a bus charter company will know the tricks and tactics to help you get the most out of very crowded areas. I’ve heard, too, that some bus charters offer movies that you can watch while traveling, so you can do so in comfort. I’ll be sure to keep this great information in mind as we look into all of our travel options for an upcoming trip we want to take.

    I like that you point out that one of the reasons to hire a bus charter is when there is a language barrier. I can see why it would be nice to have a professional driver who can help communicate your needs with the locals. My wife and I are wanting to visit historical places in Mexico in the summer. I’ll have to talk to her about hiring a professional bus driver to help ensure that we know what’s going on.

  8. Kylie Dotts says:

    I like how you said that a private bus charter is a good option when a group is looking for fun and exploration. I think that this is a really huge benefit of hiring private transportation when going to a different city because normally the driver will be someone who has lived there for a while and knows the streets and the sights to see. My extended family has been planning a trip and it might be a good idea for us to consider renting some private transportation so we can have a really good experience and get all we can out of the time we’re there.

  9. Amanda Drew says:

    My family is planning on traveling around to different national parks for a reunion, and I’m in charge of transportation. It’s good that chartered buses can help you plan your itinerary since I’m not too sure we have a plan yet. I’ll have to be on the lookout for a rental place.

  10. Gloria Durst says:

    I like how you say that you want to consider having a private charter bus when you go on vacation because they know the local spots. It would be really nice for your group to have private transport and, to some extent, a private tour guide. My sister is going on vacation in a big group, so she’ll have to consider chartering a bus.

  11. Ashley Maxwell says:

    I appreciate your comment about how using a charter bus system is a way to travel with a big group without too much stress. Thanks for mentioning how the driver can take care of your luggage, directions, weather, and almost everything else so that you and all guests can enjoy their time. My husband and I are thinking about taking our kids and my sister’s family on a trip, and we are considering looking into charter services.

  12. Brynne Jones says:

    It was nice that you mentioned that a private charter company will know tricks and tips to getting the most out of your trip. I liked that you included that a bus tour could be valuable if you don’t speak the language of the place that you’re visiting. My brother and his family are going to be leaving on a family vacation soon. It could be fun for them to plan a charter bus tour as part of their trip.

  13. Marcus Coons says:

    I loved when you mentioned how renting a bus can help you have someone on your side who knows all the tricks and tips you need to make the most out of your experience when visiting tourists areas. It is important to remember that taking the time to check the company’s reputation and to see what type of buses they have for rent can help you choose the best for your trip. We are planning a family reunion and want to hire a bus that can help us get to nearby tourist places, so I’m glad I found your post.

  14. Derek Dewitt says:

    I’ve never thought about using a charter bus for big events but I might have to try it out. I like that you mention how a private bus company will know the tricks to get your around popular locations easily. Being able to dodge the crowds on our next family vacation sounds really nice. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Violette Lebrac says:

    I appreciate your point about how transport services can relieve the stress of figuring out the road conditions or looking for a map of the area. I’m in charge of taking my daughter’s soccer team to their state championship, and I need to be able to transport a lot of students, so I’m nervous about finding my way around the area. Maybe I should look for a transport service that offers school group travel so I don’t have to worry about so many things.

  16. gloria durst says:

    I agree that you would want to consider the reputation of a charter service before you choose them. It would make sense to check this because it would show their experience. My brother is looking for a bus charter, so he’ll have to check their reputation.
