As a big event or corporate retreat approaches, most organizers see the need to find a way to move a large number of people to the planned event location. Considering long security check lines and how expensive airline tickets tend to be, charter rentals are more appealing.

For new bus renters, a lot of questions need to be answered beforehand. For example, how much does renting the charter bus cost? Are you supposed to pay by the hour or per mile? Should you expect hidden costs?

The short answer is “it depends”. Below, we will help you determine the average cost to expect.

Most charter services that focus on transporting groups around metropolitan areas – or within radiuses of approximately 50 miles – generally charge on a per hour basis. Most of these service providers feature a minimum rental time of 4 to 5 hours. Besides, there is something called “garage time” – this is the time needed for the bus to get from the yard to the agreed-upon pickup location. Most companies will include this in the rental cost.

To give you an example, let’s take a 4-hour rental of a 55-passenger bus featuring a $125 hourly rate. The total rental cost will be $625 – $500 for the 4 hours ($125/hour x 4 hours) plus $125 for the garage time. Any additional hour will be charged $125. Each partial hour will be charged as a whole hour.

This might look expensive until you decide to do a comparison with the average taxi fare. An average taxi ride will cost $45/hour for 1 passenger, not including the driver’s tip. By comparison, the mini bus rental will cost $2 per individual for 55 people. This is a huge difference.

If you are transporting a mid-sized group and you would like to save yourself some cash on a shorter journey – such as a corporate event or a field trip – you should consider renting a minibus or a school bus. Both are suitable for all occasions and they have a more affordable compared to renting a coach bus.

Frequently Asked Questions

We ensure that everyone in Gainesville, FL can afford to rent a bus. This is why we maintain low prices. That said, the cost of renting a bus is not constant for everyone. There are various factors that usually affect the charter & mino bus rental cost. The main factors include:

  • The day you need the bus – Compared to weekdays, the demand is usually higher on weekends. For this reason, the rates tend to be higher when booking buses on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • The number of hours you need the vehicle – As you will see in the bus pricing section, the hourly method is the most common pricing model. This means that the more the number of hours you need the vehicle, the higher the charter & mini bus rental cost will be.

  • Luxury amenities – The cost of renting a bus featuring flat-screen displays, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, restrooms, etc. will be higher compared to the cost of renting a vehicle that does not have these amenities.

Charter & Mini Bus Pricing

The average bus rental cost ranges between $175 per hour for a 30-passenger vehicle to $350 per hour for a 60-passenger vehicle. It is important to note that in some cases, a minimum number of hours may be required to account for the costs of traveling to the pickup location, paying our driver and the company’s overhead.

In most cases, a 4-hour minimum is usually imposed when the demand for the buses is high. This means that even if you need the Gainesville, FL charter bus for a maximum of 2 hours, you will still need to pay the cost of renting a bus for 4 hours.

In addition to the company’s base cost, the following costs may increase the amount you have to pay for a bus:


In addition to being an industry standard, gratuity is also a nice gesture. It is a way of thanking the driver for keeping you safe throughout the entire trip. If your driver has done a good job, it is recommended that you tip him or her 15% to 20% of the total rental cost.

Extra Fees

Some times the party goes can make a mess. If your group happens to make a mess, this will increase the bus cost. Some of the things you may need to pay for include vomiting inside the bus, smoking inside the vehicle, and other excessive cleanups. The starting fee for excessive mess is $250.

Charter & mini buses are available in different sizes and seating capacities, On average, typical buses will have a seating capacity of approximately 56 seats. However, the number of seats can range from 36 to 60.

If you need a more compact vehicle for your trip, you can rent a minibus. Most minibusses will have a seating capacity of fewer than 35 passengers. Minibusses are an ideal option when it comes to shuttling groups around town for tours, festivals, weddings, and more.

It is recommended that you tip your driver 10% – 20% of the total transportation cost. This serves as a way of thanking the driver for making the trip possible.

On a trip where everyone in the group is contributing to the transportation cost, calculate the total tip and then divide it by the total number of passengers. The trip organizer should then collect that amount from each passenger to give to the driver.

If you allow the passengers to give the predetermined amount to the driver at their convenience, it can easily result in your driver being shorted – some passengers may decide to avoid paying the tip. If you are in charge of booking your bus, you should ensure that this does not happen.
