If you've decided to take a holiday with a lot of different members of your family, then transport can get tricky. You can't get everyone in one vehicle, and you may not be sure how the holiday will work if you all take your own cars.
It may make sense to hire a bus for the trip. As well as carrying all your family at once, this has some other advantages. What are they?
1. Reduce Your Costs
If you go off on a trip in a few different cars, then you all have individual costs. You have to pay for petrol and parking. As a group, these costs mount up even if you're all paying for your own vehicles.
If you hire a bus, then you do have hire costs. However, you'll probably all spend less on travel over the course of the holiday once you divide everything up.
For example, you will only have one vehicle tank to fill. This reduces your fuel costs. You'll also save on other charges. If you need to use a car park, you will only have to pay for one ticket rather than multiple ones.
2. Keep Everyone Together
Family holidays can be a lot of fun, but they can also be frustrating. If you have your own family, in-laws, siblings and their kids to contend with, then it's hard to keep everyone together and on track.
If everyone is in their own car, then your plans for a scheduled drive from A to B could go awry. People might get lost or distracted, or they may go off and do something on their own without telling anyone.
If you're all in a bus, then everyone stays together when they should. You don't have to wait for people to turn up or catch up.
3. Reduce Driving Stress
The whole point of having a holiday is to get a relaxing break. If you're going to be driving for a lot of the time every day, then you might end up more stressed than chilled. You can't relax and enjoy yourself over a few beers if you know you'll get behind the wheel shortly afterwards.
If you hire a bus, then you can spread driving responsibility across your family groups. This gives everyone a chance to take a break from being the designated driver.
