Chartered Considerations:
5 Things Not To Do
On A Charter Bus

Travelling by charter bus puts you in control of your journey from the moment you leave to the moment you arrive. It is more affordable than other forms of travel, gives you more flexibility and ensures that your group arrives feeling refreshed and energised.

It’s also crucial to keep in mind that you are not the only person on board and while you might want to catch up with the other passengers, play games or listen to music, others might want to sleep or just have a little quiet time before you arrive at your destination.

However, when you’re travelling by private bus, it’s important that you are considerate of your fellow passengers, of the driver and other people on the road. Remember, that you are in a moving vehicle and safety should always be a top priority. It’s also crucial to keep in mind that you are not the only person on board and while you might want to catch up with the other passengers, play games or listen to music, others might want to sleep or just have a little quiet time before you arrive at your destination.

Continue reading for five things that you should avoid doing on a charter bus so that everyone on board has a safe, comfortable and enjoyable journey.

Don’t Be Late

Whether you are heading off to a team-building event with your work colleagues, you’re travelling to a family reunion or you are taking a bus charter to a wedding, it’s critical you are on time.

If one person shows up late, it’s going to impact on everyone else on board and can mess up the entire itinerary. Don’t be the person who arrives late. Find out what time you are meeting and be sure you are at the designated departure time at least twenty minutes prior to departure.

Go for blander foods that don’t have such a strong smell. You will be more popular with the other passengers on board.

Avoid Strong-Smelling Food

If you are organising snacks for the trip, make sure that you don’t choose food with a very strong smell. Food choices like egg mayo sandwiches and tuna salads might taste great but the people around you might not appreciate having to put up with the smell.

Instead, go for blander foods that don’t have such a strong smell. You will be more popular with the other passengers on board and will avoid any potentially awkward exchanges en route.

Limit Your Alcohol Consumption

Having a few beers on a big day out is all part of the fun but consider leaving your drinking until you get to your destination. Avoid overindulging on the way to your event. Nobody wants to be the person who drinks too much, too early and has to be looked after by the other people on board for the rest of the day.

Consider making the bus charter an alcohol-free zone and avoid the potential for someone to embarrass themselves and the entire group before you even get to where you’re going.

Keep the volume of your conversations down, avoid singing and shouting and if you’re listening to music, be sure to wear headphones.

Be Considerate of Other Passengers

When you’re travelling in a group, being considerate of the other passengers will make the journey more enjoyable for everyone. Keep the volume of your conversations down, avoid singing and shouting and if you’re listening to music, be sure to wear headphones. Not everyone wants to listen to your favourite music or hear the latest updates from your personal life.

Other passengers might want to use their time in transit to catch up on sleep or to get some work done so that they can relax when they arrive at your destination. Be considerate of everyone else on board and ensure a peaceful journey for all.
