In short, absolutely. On top of the standard features, you can request audio-visual equipment, power outlets, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning to make your ride all the more cushier. With every extra amenity, your ride only becomes more comfortable. Fortunately, adding amenities doesn’t add a lot to your coach bus rental cost.

When renting a coach bus, there are certain factors that come into play to affect charter bus costs. The most important factor that changes a coach bus rental cost? Time.
When you book––from the time of day to the time of year––will have a significant impact on the coach bus rental cost. For example, coach buses typically run higher bills during night routes, given that suppliers often need to pay drivers a premium when driving after dark. Prices also peak during longer trips.
The more time spent on the road, the higher your coach bus rental costs will be due to mileage rates, fuel surcharges, and the possibility of employing multiple drivers to cover the distance of the trip.
There are a few ways to hunt down a low coach bus rental cost. One strategy is to book in the off-season, as this tends to be when charter bus rental prices are at their lowest. The off-season is generally between December and March. Even if you are not traveling during this time, it’s still possible to secure a better bus deal by booking far in advance.
We also run a price-matching program. If you’ve found a quote at a more competitive coach bus rental cost, let us know and we’ll do all we can to match it, so you can get the best possible price for your booking.
The service fee represents Bus.com’s booking charge and is used to maintain our website.
A driver’s hotel fee is automatically added when a driver’s total number of driving hours exceeds daily limits set by the Department of Transportation in the U.S. and Canada. In the U.S., these limits dictate that a driver can legally drive for 10 hours and be on duty for 12 hours. After this, a driver must take an 8-hour break. In Canada, a driver can legally drive for 12 hours and be on duty for 14 hours, but then must take an 8-hour break.
The hotel bookings are typically handled by our procurement team and cost approximately $150 per night. However, this may be affected by location and seasonality.
Nearly all of our U.S. bus partners have $5 million coverage for automobile liability as well as $5 Million for general liability.

It’s best to book your motor coach rental at least 6 months in advance. As your departure date approaches, bus availability tends to dwindle and consequently, coach bus rental prices tend to increase. We can provide last-minute coach bus rentals, but it won’t be at that sweet early-bird price. Our Book Now, Pay Later option makes booking early easy.
Pro tip: Find out when your city’s tourism industry is at its peak. If you’re traveling during that time, it’s a good idea to book even earlier. For example, the prime time for weddings in San Francisco is autumn. If you’re renting a coach bus for a wedding shuttle service in the fall, aim to book your bus at least 9 months in advance.
Bus.com’s support team is there for you 24/7. Please reach out by emailing us at [email protected].
Every trip is different, but the need for reliable and cost-effective transportation remains the same. The coach bus has established itself as the preferred option among renters due to its versatility, spaciousness, and wide range of amenities other bus rental options such as school buses and minibuses simply do not have.
