Los Angeles Charter Bus Rental Cost Factors

Your LA charter bus cost will be determined by several factors. These factors include but are not limited to:

  • The type of charter bus you book: Depending on your group size and trip type, you’ll be paired with the best type of minibus or charter bus rental. Minibus rentals are typically more affordable than full-size charter bus rentals.
  • When you’re traveling: Los Angeles is a busy city and has high travel demand. Booking a charter bus in busy seasons around summer, fall, and winter holidays can be more expensive than in the off-season.
  • How far in advance you rent your charter bus: We recommend that LA travel groups book their bus rental at least 3 months in advance. If you’re traveling during the busy season, we’d recommend booking at least 6 months in advance, if possible.
  • Requested onboard features: More upscale models of buses with upgraded interiors may be more expensive than standard charter buses. When you book your bus, be sure to request the features you’ll require onboard. Groups that need ADA-accessible features will not incur additional fees for a suitable ride. Just notify your reservation expert well in advance
