How to Book a Bus Rental in LA

To reserve a charter bus rental for an upcoming group trip in Los Angeles, call us at 310-667-6197 to speak with a reservation representative. But before you call, have the details of your trip handy. Make sure you know:

  • The date(s) of your trip
  • Your itinerary, including pick-up and drop-off times and locations
  • Your passenger headcount
  • Any special requirements (i.e. an ADA-complaint bus model)
  • Any special requests (i.e. a bus with an onboard restroom)

Our call center is open 24/7, so you can call to book a bus with Los Angeles Charter Bus Company at any time. After you call and speak with a rep, they’ll provide you with a bus rental price quote for free and with no obligation to book. With your personalized quote in hand, you can choose to book there and then on the phone by putting down a deposit.

LA Charter Bus Rental Prices

The total cost of your Los Angeles charter bus rental is determined by the specifics of your trip. Some factors that influence your quote include:

  • If you’re renting a bus during a busy time of year (such as in the spring for a field trip, during the holidays, or around the time of a major city event), the cost may be higher than if you need a bus during off-peak seasons.
  • Time of Booking. If you do need to book a bus during a busy time of the year, the further in advance you call to book, the more affordable your quote can be. It’s also best to book sooner rather than later to ensure the bus model and amenities you need are available.
  • Bus Model. Large, full-size charter buses are typically more expensive than compact minibuses or sprinter vans.

Some other trip circumstances could cause additional fees that won’t be included in your quote, such as road tolls and parking fees. It’s always good to bring extra cash and budget for extraneous expenses while on the road.

You may also need to pay for a hotel room for your bus driver if you’re renting a charter bus for a multi-day or overnight trip. A driver’s tip is also appreciated and is typically 5-10% of your total quote.

Your Los Angeles Charter Bus Rental Options

So you know where and when you’re going and with how many people, and you have your budget sorted and in hand. Next, consider what type of charter bus rental is the best fit for your trip.

If you’re traveling with a large group, such as 20 people or more, consider booking a 56-passenger motorcoach. This type of bus is ideal for sports teams and school groups, or a group of any size traveling a long distance (like a full day or multi-day trip). It typically includes amenities like an onboard restroom, TV screens with a DVD player, power outlets and USB ports in each row of seats, and more. It also has an undercarriage luggage compartment with enough storage space for one piece of large baggage per passenger (if at full capacity).

If you’re traveling with a small- or medium-sized group, then a minibus is for you. There are multiple sizes of minibuses, from compact 15-passenger minibuses to 35-passenger bus rentals, so you can find the perfect fit for your group. A minibus is great for event shuttle service or local trips that are done in a day and have amenities like reclining seats, a WiFi hotspot, and overhead storage.

If you’re traveling with a small group of passengers, then a Sprinter van rental might be the best fit. When you book with us, Sprinter van rentals in Los Angeles come with the services of a professional driver at the wheel, so you don’t need to worry about driving or navigation. A Sprinter van can comfortably seat up to 12 passengers and can have features like tinted windows, leather seats, and space for one carry-on item per passenger.
