When you want to celebrate someone’s birthday or engagement, hiring a party bus is a great way to take a group of your friends out for the evening. You don’t have to worry about getting separated as you go from pub to nightclub or worry about anyone getting picked up for drink driving. To ensure that a good time is had by all, here are some tips for hiring a party bus for an evening of fun.
Make Reservations in Advance
Before you can enjoy a night on the town in a party bus, you have to hire it in advance. Whether it is to celebrate a special occasion or just for a night of fun with your friends, you need to reserve it about a month prior to your celebration. If you want to hire it for a wedding party, then it needs to be done almost a year in advance, especially if the wedding is scheduled in the summer months of July and August or in September.
When you call for a NJ party bus rental, most companies want to know how many people will be in your party, what occasion is being celebrated, and for how many hours you will need their services. Be as detailed as possible so the company will know what to expect from your group. Tell the company you have more people or need more time than you actually do so you don’t feel cramped in the vehicle or are not rushed when you are having a great time during the night.
Prepare Yourself for the Evening
On the night that you go out, you will want to prepare yourself to have a fun evening. Try to rest before heading out for the evening, eat something so you don’t get too tipsy when you start drinking, and stay hydrated during the night. Drink at least one glass of water at each stop so you don’t wake up with a horrible hangover the next day.
Tip the Driver
Clarify the tipping policy with the party bus company as some of them will include the gratuity in the rental price. However, if the tip is separate, always be prepared with cash for the driver, especially if you think some members of your party could get a little out of hand. The most common amount to tip the driver is 18% to 20% of the base rental price.
When you and your friends board the bus your work is done, so allow yourself to have some fun. Relax and don’t get caught up in trying to behave or keeping your friends under control. While you may mean well, trying to police them could kill the mood when you should be celebrating with them.
These tips for hiring a party bus can help make your evening a success. Remember to confirm the arrangements at the beginning of the week so your plans don’t have to be cancelled at the last moment and have fun on your night out.
