Planning a group trip? Looking for a place that offers something for everyone, from top-notch museums to rich culinary and cultural experiences, from world-class sports to amazing outdoor attractions? Come to Miami. It’s tropical here most of the year, so it’s a great way to escape in the doldrums of a northern winter, but it’s also mild in the summer, with a cool breeze coming off the ocean.
You don’t want to come to Miami and have to work—come to Miami to play! Try to handle everything yourself and you’ll spend most of your time checking the GPS or the clock, battling traffic or looking for parking. Instead, book a charter bus from US Coachways, and kick back with everyone else while we take care of all the details.
Here are answers to commonly asked questions about charter bus rentals from US Coachways:
Who is US Coachways?
US Coachways has been a leader and innovator in the charter bus rental business for more than 30 years, helping groups, group leaders and businesses find effective ground transportation solutions for a wide range of events.
How do we set up a US Coachways charter bus rental trip to Miami?
We have worked hard to make our process as simple as possible. You can start at our easy-to-use online cost calculator, where you’ll get a free estimate within minutes. You can also call 1-855-287-2427 for assistance from an experienced travel consultant.
What kind of a deadline is there for booking a charter bus rental?
In most instances, because of our vast connections with charter bus vendors nationwide and our decades of experience, we can set up an entire outing with relatively short notice. We recommend, however, that you start the process as early as possible, as that that will typically give you more options.
What will it cost to take a charter bus rental to Miami?
That depends. The total price for a charter bus excursion varies, based on many factors, such as the time of year and day of week that you travel, how long you’ll be gone, how many people are going with you, how many stops you plan to make, and whether you’ll need any special options on the bus. Go to our our fleet page for an estimate of the costs.
Will we need to travel far to start our outing?
As a general rule, no. We work with charter bus service providers in rural and urban areas throughout the United States, and can usually arrange to pick you up and drop you off at a location that’s convenient for you and your group.
What options do we have when choosing the type of charter bus?
Because we know the importance the right bus can have on the overall success of your outing, we’ll work hard to make certain you have choices. For small-to-medium-sized groups, we typically recommend the minibus, with options that seat anywhere from 24 to 35 and sufficient space for your personal items. If you’re traveling with a larger group, you’ll want a full-sized charter bus, with accommodations for up to 57 people. See our fleet page to learn more.
What amenities will we find on the charter bus?
With the exception of some school buses, the charter buses we provide all come with high-back bucket seats, climate control, ample storage space and a great sound system. We can provide ADA-compliant vehicles, if requested, and can also get you a coach with Wifi, DVD players, charging ports for your devices, P.A. systems, hardwood floors or leather seats, all at an additional cost. Check with your booking agent to see what’s available.
Can we bring alcoholic beverages on a charter bus rental trip to Miami?
Yes. We permit the consumption of beer, wine and liquor on a charter bus rental, provided we have given approval before you start your trip. We require that you comply with the local alcohol laws anywhere your bus travels and we give your driver absolute discretion to terminate or suspend alcohol consumption at any time for any reason.
What are the age requirements for booking a charter bus rental?
All charter bus rental agreements must be signed by a legal adult (21 years of age). We provide coaches for high school and college outings, but typically require that a parent sign for the bus.
