Why Traveling in a Group is Better Than Solo

“You can pack for every occasion, but a good friend will always be the best thing you could bring.” Although that quote is from an unknown source, the thought behind it remains true. Some of the best memories made are with loved ones and friends. Remember that one time you and your friends visited that one place? Or what about vacationing away from home with your family? That’s why we’re writing this article, to let you know the exact reasons why traveling in a group of friends/family is better than traveling by yourself. After all, “A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.” (Tim Cahill) Below are three main reasons why group travel is better than solo travel.

Saving Money

Imagine a beautiful trip to the city you’ve always wanted to visit. But think of how expensive it would be if it were just you. The flight, the hotel fare, the money needed for fun activities, and dining all add up to a lot of money for just one person. That’s why group travel has an advantage of solo travel. When you travel in a group, usually costs are split. Instead of flight, we recommend you travel with us, Prompt Charters. We’re one of the nation’s best chartered bus companies, and we offer reliable service at a fair price. Aside from travel expenses, hotel costs are usually split. Instead of one person in a hotel room, there can be 2,3, or even 4 in just a single room. Think of all the savings. Also, everyone can pool in some cash for group activities. C’mon, who doesn’t like to save some money?

 

More Bonding & Memories

“Friends that travel together stay together!” Another quote we have no idea who said it, but its pretty true. Those we choose to travel with are usually close friends and family. Those are the people we choose to enjoy life with and share amazing memories. You might already be close to those who’re in your group, but a trip away from home tends to further strengthen the bond between you and them. Not only do you become closer with your friends, but you’ll share more memories with them. Making good memories with friends are good because later in life, you can go back and reflect those good times.

 

Safety

Safety is an important thing to hold to when traveling. Going somewhere alone may not always be the best idea, especially at night or in shady areas. Each city has its own bad cranny, so it’s probably best you travel with a friend. Better yet, a group of friends. Some of the most popular cities to visit tend to be dangerous, each having their problems with robberies, drug dealers, gangsters, and more. That’s why many visit these “dream” cities with others, not alone. Aside from cheaper costs and making memories, traveling with a group basically ensures a higher protection plan. Even while many places have security guards and other forms of protection, why take the risk by traveling alone?

 

These are just three of the many reasons why group travel may be a better option than traveling alone. From cheaper travel and costs, to stronger bonds, to safety, group travel has proven to be one of the best ways to travel. And you know what’s an easy way to travel? Through chartered buses! Lucky for you, Prompt Charters is among the best in the nation. Where do you want to go in North America? We’ll take you there. No need to worry about directions or timings, we got all that covered by offering a personal driver for your bus. To learn more, call our agents at ☎ 1-877-277-6678.

Three Sleep Essentials to Bring on a Charter Bus Trip

 

Sleeping is something which many long for, especially on a road trip. Sleeping on a bus ride can be hard at times, but fear not for we are here to help. We put together a list of three sleep essentials you need to bring on your next bus trip. Don’t go without them if you look forward to getting some sleep.

*Note: this list does not include sleeping pills. This is something which should only be used if you absolutely need it.

 

Neck Pillow

A neck pillow is absolutely an essential on any kind of trip, be it airplane or bus. They keep your neck in place, as well as providing a place to rest your head. A neck pillow is better than a regular pillow for several reasons. For one, regular pillows can move around. Neck pillows stay around your neck, providing you comfort for as long as you have it on. Another reason a neck pillow is better than a normal pillow is the way the bus seats are. They recline, but for the most part they are upright. Neck pillows provide more comfort in this situation.

 

Earplugs/Headphones

Traveling with other people can be fun, but it also can be loud at times. A baby crying, people talking loudly – possible scenarios inside a chartered bus. To block out the noise, we recommend you bring a pair of earplugs. That way, you can enjoy quiet, relaxing sleep. We know many like to listen to light, soothing noise (like white noise, rain sounds, etc.) while sleeping. For those like this, we remind you not to forget your headphones at home.

 

Comfortable Sleepwear

No one likes sleeping in uncomfortable clothes. You’ll probably have clothes in your main luggage bag, but there’s a good chance that this is stored under the bus. So we recommend you bring a pair of clothes to sleep in inside your carry-on bag. That way, you can head back to the onboard bathroom and take a few minutes to change into comfy clothes. From shorts to pajamas, it’s your choice, but we recommend you pick what you feel most comfortable in.

 

Comfy clothes on, lying back on a neck pillow, while listening to soothing, sleep inducing noise – that’s how you sleep on a bus trip. Speaking of bus trip, have you booked yours? We recommend you do so with Prompt Charters, one of the best bus chartering services in the nation. You want to visit a nearby city or one across the country, you pick. We got it covered, with reliable service and fair prices. To get a personal quote, we recommend you talk to our agents at ☎ 1-877-277-6678.

7 Ways to Save Money on Your Bus Trip

So you finally booked a chartered bus trip, but now you’re looking to save some extra money on the road. We know trips can be expensive, so we decided to put together a list of ways to save as much money as possible.

 

  1. Bring meals from home. Bringing a few meals from home are a good idea if you want to save some extra cash. It’s best to bring something on the lighter side, so it’ll be easier to eat while on the bus. Sandwiches are a great option.
  2. Stop at a grocery store instead of fast food. We know it can be tempting to stop at some fast food while on a trip, but you should stop by a grocery store if you want to save some cash. Food at the grocery mart is usually more worth it, especially since you get a lot more for the price.
  3. Bring your own snacks. A great way to save a few bucks is to not buy snacks on the trip. Instead, consider bringing your own from home. That way, you don’t give in to your urge of buying the first thing you see, and instead bring something you prepared or carefully bought at home.
  4. Bring toys for the kids. If you’re traveling with young kids, it’s best to bring some toys from home. Young kids usually tend to get bored or grumpy on long trips, so its best to bring toys you already have instead of purchasing something you shouldn’t have to.
  5. Stay at good, but cheap hotels. If you want to save money, you might not want to stay at Hilton or Marriott. Instead, find a high-reviewed, low cost hotel/motel. If you look in the right places, you should be able to find some high quality, low cost rooms.
  6. Resist the temptation of extra shopping. When many go on trips, they like to bring back lots of new items and souvenirs. While bringing back some souvenirs can be fun, overspending on too many of them is not. If you want to save money, buy only a limited amount of money and don’t overspend.
  7. Do your research. This is perhaps the most important of them all. From finding cheap rooms to stay in to cheaper places to eat/shop at, everything can be found from proper research. We recommend you hop online and do your research a few weeks in advance of your trip. That way, you won’t be stressing last minute about saving money.

 

These are just seven of the many ways to save money on your next bus trip. Speaking of bus trip, have you booked yours yet? Well, get a hurry on and do so with Prompt Charters. Prompt Charters is among the best bus chartering services in the country, especially due to our reliable service and fair price. Want to save money on a bus trip? Book with Prompt Charters.

What You Should Pack for Rolling Loud & Miami

 

In just a few days, one of the largest hip-hop music festivals, Rolling Loud, will hold its 5-year anniversary in Miami. From Friday May 10th to Sunday May 12th, the music festival will be the stage for some of the biggest names in hip-hop. A few in the lineup include Migos, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi, Kendrick Lamar, and many (many) more. They definitely picked one of the best locations for the festival this year. Miami features beautiful, sunny weather, as well as rolling waves on its famous beaches. If you’re visiting Rolling Loud, you CANNOT miss out on the opportunity to explore and enjoy Miami. This blog is dedicated to what you should pack for your Miami – Rolling Loud visit.

 

So Miami can be pretty hot, so you want to pack lighter, comfortable clothes. If you’re wearing thicker and heavier apparel, you’re likely to get sweater and more tired soon. So this packing guide is split into three parts: Casual, formal, and general. Casual will focus on clothes you might wear to Rolling Loud, the beach, and to just explore Miami. Formal features clothes that you might want to wear to a fancy meeting or restaurant. Lastly, general focuses on items that everyone who visits should bring.

*Note: This guide doesn’t list socks, underwear, and other similar items. It’s already expected for you to bring these.

 

Casual:

T-Shirts –  Miami is most likely going to be hot or at least warm (somewhere above 80 degrees). A great apparel essential for this type of weather is t-shirts. T-shirts allow you to remain modest while still enjoying the weather. A great tip is to wear lighter fabric t-shirts, like cotton. Cotton clothing is perfect for hot weather, since it keeps you cooler than most other types of fabric. Another tip is lighter colored shirts. You’ve probably heard this before, but lighter colors tend to reflect the sunlight while darker colors absorb it. You might want to pack some white and other light-colored shirts for this trip.

 

Shorts – Just like t-shirts, shorts are another casual essential. Pick out some lighter, breathable shorts. One of the best options are cotton shorts, since they’re relatively cheap and available everywhere. Other breathable fabrics include linen and silk (these tend to be a little more expensive). Lighter cargo shorts are great for exploring Miami. Since you’ll probably be carrying your phone, wallet, and other stuff, the pockets make it great to go hands-free.

 

Swim Clothes – Swim clothes are a must if you are going to be in the Miami waters. Regular shorts get heavy once in water, but light swimming trunks keep you comfortable while you’re down under. Girls may prefer swimming shorts or bikinis to wear in the blue waters of Miami beach. There’s a lot to do on or near Miami beach, like jet ski, scuba dive, and much more. These activities are most enjoyed when in comfortable swimming clothing, like trunks or bikinis.

 

Pants – Jeans are a great clothing piece to have with you on your trip. Since it is so versatile, you can match it with so many things. You can go casual with a t-shirt, or even dress it up with a polo or a suit jacket. Another great pants option you should have with you is joggers or sweatpants. These are usually comfortable and best for working out or taking it casual. If you’re looking to get a little more stylish, try chino pants. Not only do they look great, but they also are comfortable if fitted correctly.

 

Casual Shoes or Sneakers – When you’re out and about exploring Miami or at the music festival, you should be looking out for comfort for your feet. Comfortable shoes are always a must-have, especially if you want to explore the big city. Cushion-padded sneakers give you that athletic feel while keeping your feet comfortable. Shoes like vans are not always the most comfortable, but they’re another good-looking option. Sandles don’t offer your feet much comfort when you’re walking around, but they can be useful on the beach.

 

Formal:

Dress Shirts – If you’re looking to go a bit classier and more formal, dress shirts are a good option to have. Whether you choose long-sleeve or short-sleeve t-shirts, it is best to go with lighter colored options. Once again, the “light colors reflect and dark colors absorb” principle comes into play. Also, you should probably choose a breathable fabric like cotton, silk, or linen (especially if you’re wearing it with a suit jacket). Sometimes, satin can be light and a good option in dress shirts.

 

Dress Pants – If you’re going to wear a dress shirt, you might as well bring a pair of dress pants too. A good pair of pants complements the shirt, so you can be looking your best if you choose a good combo. When choosing dress pants, it might be hard to choose a good-looking lighter shade of pants, so opt for something like a lighter navy blue or gray. Black, although it may be really classy, attracts the heat towards your body.

 

Suit Pieces – When many think of elegance or formal wear (especially in men’s clothing), they think of suits or suit jackets and such. They add a lot of flavor and style in an outfit, something most look for when trying to dress formally. When in Miami, you might not want to choose really dark options. Go with something light-colored like gray or a lighter navy blue (just like the pants). Since a suit is generally a heavier/thicker type of apparel option, its best to go with the lighter options if you still want to be comfortable after a few hours in them. Thinner cotton or silk suits are a great, light option.

 

Formal Shoes – When it comes to shoes in formal dressing, people typically opt for two options: dress shoes or sneakers/casual shoes. When choosing a dress shoe to pack, choose the one with the most comfort. A lot of dress shoes aren’t that comfortable, so its best to find the few that are. Instead of dress shoes, many opt to wear casual shoes like vans with their formal clothing pieces. Once again, choose the shoes that you like which feature the most comfort.

 

General:

Sunscreen – Miami is probably going to be sunny, so don’t forget your sunscreen lotion to protect you from the rays.

Sunglasses – To keep from the sunshine blinding you wherever you go, it’s probably best to bring a pair of sunglasses.

Toiletries – Everyone brushes (hopefully) their teeth in the morning, right? Don’t forget your personal hygiene items!

Chargers – All that use of social media on your phone/other devices are draining your battery. Stay plugged in by bringing extra chargers!

Extra Money – Thinking about buying some souvenirs from Rolling Loud? Well, you might want to bring some extra money.

Proper Identification – This is a must wherever you go, especially in Miami. If you want to order drinks, you must present your card to verify your age. Leaving it behind can cause some serious problems. Don’t forget it!

  

Each of the items in the simple guide above can be used at Rolling Loud or Miami in general. You know what’s a great way to get there? Use Prompt Charters! Prompt Charters is a top-of-the-line chartering bus company offering you reliable chartering services throughout the country. A fun way to enjoy Rolling Loud and Miami is with a group, which is something we specialize in. Group travel is best when done in a comfortable, spacious, personal bus. Your designated driver is also experienced and knowledgeable, so you won’t have to worry about the driving.

Why Our Buses Support the Causes of Earth Day

Today is April 22, 2019, the day set apart to honor the causes towards environmental safety. Every year, almost 200 countries participate in events coordinated by Earth Day Network. The Earth Day Network hosts large cleanups, educates others on the benefit of keeping the environment clean, and much more. Each year, the Earth Day Network fights to end or lower pollution. Most sources of air pollution are either factories or the cars and vehicles on the road. The carbon footprint they leave is decreasing the quality of the air, as well as damaging the functionality of humans, plants, and animals.

That’s where our buses come in. Buses, especially larger varieties, are better for the environment. “Why?” you may ask, especially since their larger. Won’t they let out more harmful chemicals? Well, let us explain below why buses are among the best land vehicles for the environment.


Larger the Bus, the Fewer the Cars

Take a group trip, for example. Everyone is traveling to a city about 100 miles away. What’s better: sixty passengers in one bus or up to 55 individual cars? You hopefully can choose the obvious answer, the bus. According to the National Express Transit, “Buses generate only about 20% of the carbon monoxide and just 10% of the hydrocarbons per passenger-mile when compared with a single-occupancy vehicle.” A large charter bus has the capability of taking up to 55 cars off the road. Think about how much emissions won’t be spread into the air!


Less Fuel Consumption

Fuel, as helpful and useful as it is, is also a major factor when it comes to air pollution. When the fuel is burned and used for the vehicle to run, harmful chemicals like nitrous oxides and carbon monoxide are let loose into the air. Since a bus has the capability to take up to 55 cars off the road, the fuel used would be lower. While a bus does use more fuel than one single car, it is a sliver when compared to over 50 cars.


Typically Less Littering

When someone is driving in a car, they have the opportunity to roll down their windows and throw their trash outside. Littering can be dangerous toward the environment, especially if what they threw out is toxic or harmful to the plants and animals nearby. In a bus, this usually is not the case. Most bus windows cannot be opened, so people are forced to throw out their trash in garbage cans or when they exit the bus. While people may leave their trash within the bus, it is our job already to clean the buses after each trip. This job is much better than allowing people to hurt the environment.
The three reasons above are just a few of many important reasons why buses are better for the environment. We shouldn’t care about the environment just on Earth Day, but we should do our part every day. Prompt Charters have been at the top of bus industry for many years, mainly since we put economy-friendly transport within our priorities. When you travel, travel with a reliable chartered bus like Prompt Charters. As technology increases, so does our variety of more eco-friendly buses. As the future rolls about, our fleet will consist more of electric and battery powered buses, such as the one below.

Why You Should Charter a Bus for Field Trips

 

 

Why You Should Charter a Bus for Field Trips

 

So you’re thinking of planning a field trip for your students. What should you do: use a school bus or charter a private bus? Below are the main reasons why you should book a charter bus for field trips rather than take a school bus.

 

Comfort

The first reason why take a chartered bus over a regular school bus is comfort. You probably already thought of this. Prompt Charters’ buses are one of the best options around, especially for comfort. The seats itself depend on the type of bus chartered, but most buses feature comfortable leather seats. The mini coach bus is one of the best options for a field trip, as it can seat 37 passengers. It comes with leather seats as well as a load of other amenities. All bus models feature air conditioning, additional legroom, and more.

 

Entertainment

We understand field trips can be long and tiresome, so a great way to pass the time on the road is to use our entertainment options. Once again it depends on the type of bus, but several bus models come fitted with flat screen televisions. Also, many come with complimentary Wi-Fi, so that means you can display your online videos on the flat screens. Boom, instant entertainment. Our buses also have speaker and PA systems, so you can play music throughout the bus.

 

Stress Free

We know that planning group activities like a field trip can be stressful for teachers and the principal/director of the school. On top of grading papers and teaching kids valuable information, they have to plan (and drive!) a trip for their students. Well, this is where Prompt Charters comes in. Each chartered bus comes with its own driver, so that takes away so much travel stress. Now, those involved won’t have to worry about driving directions, timing, or anything related with driving. Each driver is experienced and knowledgeable, so they will take that burden off the instructors’ shoulders.

 

Storage

Another great feature about our buses is that they come with plenty of storage options. Most bus models feature either overhead bins, underside compartments, or rear storage space. Some buses even come with all of that! Kids may want or are required to bring book bags or other belongings. These can be stored away carefully during the drive in one of the storage spaces. Small bags and belongings can be placed in the overhead bins, and larger articles can be stored down below.

 

Eco Friendly

If you work in a school, chances are that you teach or encourage environment friendly practices. Did you know taking a fuel-efficient bus, like our models, is better than traveling in a school bus or a car? The main reason is that the larger charter buses can take almost 50 cars off the road, lowering the emission spread into the air. Also, fuel prices for the charter bus are better than a car, since it can be divided among each passenger. If you’re considering an eco-friendly way to travel, chartered bus is the way.

 

Safety

Another thing you can rely on Prompt Charters for is the safety we provide. All drivers are thoroughly tested through various conditions. They all have years of experience and are very knowledgeable of each road they drive on. Not only are our drivers safe and reliable, but so are our buses. Most of our bus models are made with sheets of metal, so it’ll protect you in the case of an accident.

 

These are just a few reasons why a charter bus may fit your needs more than a regular school bus. If your school would rather choose a classic school bus over a charter bus and is in need of one, we offer school buses as well. Prices are different of charter buses, but they’ll be a little bit cheaper.
