If you're planning to go on a holiday and are in one of the following two situations, you might find that hiring a bus greatly improves your travel experience.
1. You want to spend as much quality time as possible with your travel companions
If you have invited a lot of close friends or family members to go on your holiday with you, and you want to spend as much quality time as possible with them, then it is probably a good idea to rent a bus from a bus hire company. The reason for this is that if your holiday will involve a lot of sightseeing, you will probably need to use some form of transport to get from place to place. If you don't have your own dedicated bus rental, you may have to use public transport. This could then lead to you not having as much time to enjoy your travel companions' company.
For example, if you decide to use public trains as your main form of transport, you might not all be able to sit together in the same carriage (if the trains are busy and there are not enough seats available). This could mean that you spend a significant amount of time separated from the others each day, which then defeats the purpose of choosing to go on a group trip.
Furthermore, you will have to deal with the hassle of queuing up individually to buy tickets for whichever form of public transport you use, each time you need to travel somewhere. If there are a lot of people in your group, even this simple task could take quite a while. This may then take away from the time you have available to socialise with one another.
Conversely, if you have a bus at your disposal throughout the holiday, you can all travel from place to place as a group and enjoy some good conversation during each road journey. Furthermore, you won't have to waste time purchasing tickets for every journey, as you will simply pay one upfront fee when you book the bus. This will maximise the amount of free time that you have to enjoy everyone's company.
2. You and your travel companions have mobility problems
If you or the people you intend to travel with have mobility problems, then it is definitely worth hiring a bus for your trip. The reason for this is that if you experience pain and severe stiffness after just a short bout of walking, and you choose to travel around the area by foot or to use public transport, you may find that by the time you reach the attractions that you decided to visit, you feel too exhausted to really appreciate them.
If, on the other hand, you have a rented bus available at all times during your trip, you and your travel companions can minimise the amount of physical exertion you have to endure in order to get to the attractions you want to see, as the bus driver can collect you just outside your accommodation and drop you off at the same spot at the end of each day.
This, in turn, will ensure that your time is spent immersing yourself in the culture of the local area, rather than being distracted by your mobility issues.Share

Planning an around the world trip can be very exciting. However, it can also be kind of stressful. We know because we all have travelled on extended trips abroad. It isn't always clear which method of transportation will be best to get you from one place to another, and sometimes you might be uncertain about the best route to take. We hope to cover these topics and many more as we publish articles on the blog. Although none of use are professional travel agents, we all have a lot of experience researching and planning a tour of a Europe, Asia or South America.
