A group of coworkers at a tech startup in Raleigh wanted to celebrate the launch of their new product with an exciting night out in the city. They decided to rent a party bus for 12 people to take them around to various bars, clubs, and restaurants in Raleigh. The group needed the bus from 8pm-2am on a Saturday night. For a 5 hour rental on a weekend evening, the total cost was $1,650. This worked out to around $138 per person for the night. The party bus was able to conveniently pick them up from their office downtown and drive them to hot spots like Glenwood South, Fayetteville Street, and North Hills. Everyone had a fantastic time celebrating without having to worry about driving or parking. At the end of the night, they happily tipped their party bus team 15% for providing great service, bringing their total to $1,898.
A group of 20 friends from Raleigh want to take a day trip to the beach in Wilmington for a bachelorette party. They plan to leave Raleigh at 10 AM and spend the entire day in Wilmington, not returning home until 9 PM that evening. For a high-end 20 passenger party bus rental for 11 hours, the total quote would be $1,650. This factors in a rate of $150 per hour, which is common for a weekend rental during peak season. The bachelorette group would need to pay a deposit of $500 to reserve the date, with the remaining balance of $1,150 due a week before the rental. Tipping 15% would add about $248 to the total cost. So for a fun bachelorette beach day trip for 20 people, they could expect to pay around $1,900 total for their Raleigh party bus rental.
A group of 10 bridesmaids wanted to celebrate their best friend’s upcoming wedding with an epic bachelorette party in Raleigh. They planned a full day and night of festivities, starting with brunch and mimosas, followed by an afternoon wine tasting, and ending with a fun night out at some of Raleigh’s hottest bars and clubs. To keep the party going all day and provide safe transportation, they decided to rent a 20 passenger party bus for the entire day. The bachelorette bus rental started at 10am and went until 2am the next morning, totaling 16 hours. For a Saturday in peak season, the cost of their Raleigh party bus came out to $2,400. With room for the whole bridal party to comfortably ride together from place to place, their own private team, and built-in entertainment like a sound system and lights, the bachelorette bus was the perfect transportation option.
