When planning a trip or a getaway, you take great care making sure your trip will be exciting, relaxing, fun, or all of the above. Getaways are a chance to leave behind the stresses of every day life, reconnect with friends or family, and discover new and exciting places and activities. Oftentimes, however, your method of travel can come with a lot of hassle and unneeded stress that can take away from your much anticipated trip. Plane tickets can be unreasonably expensive, trains can get delayed by hours and hours, and road tripping in a car means contending with traffic, weather, and fluctuating gas prices. Fortunately, there is a way to make the journey a fun and relaxing part of the trip. A charter rental will allow you to travel comfortably on a bus and leave the worries of other modes of transportation behind.

As early as the 1820s, people were reaching their destinations by horse-drawn bus. However, charter bus travel is far from old fashioned! In fact, bus travel in the U.S. increased by 7.5% from 2011 to 2012. This makes it the fastest growing form of travel in the country, according to the American Bus Association. Reasonable prices, flexible schedules and endless destination choices are just some of the things that make charter bus trips a popular choice for the American traveler today.

With a charter rental, you can leave the driving to a professional while you relax even before you reach your destination. You can sit with other members of your party and make conversation, play games, and enjoy the scenery as you travel across the country. Typically, motor coaches have reclining seats so you can comfortably relax and take a nap while en route. You’ll also enjoy climate control travel aboard a motor coach regardless of what the weather is like outside. Another useful amenity is wifi on a bus which enables you to use your tablet, phone, or computer to surf the internet to pass the time.

One of the many benefits of bus travel is that it is more environmentally friendly than other forms of travel. Single-occupant automobiles achieve 27.2 passenger miles per gallon of fuel while motorcoaches provide an impressive 206.6 passenger miles per gallon. Motorcoaches are also 3 times more efficient in reducing CO2 output when they are compared to commuter rail and 6 times more efficient than transit buses. Knowing that you are saving fuel and reducing harmful emissions will put your mind at ease as you embark on your trip.

So, when it is time to plan your next weekend getaway or family trip, consider traveling to your destination by bus. With a charter rental, travel can be fun again!
