How much is my deposit?

Happy with your bus rental quote? To lock in your Omaha charter bus or minibus, you’ll need to put down a deposit that’s 10% of your total trip cost. The remainder of your trip cost should be paid in full at least 14 days before your departure date.


What if I need to cancel my trip?

If something comes up and you’re no longer able to travel, give our 24-hour team a call as soon as you can. Depending on how far out you cancel your trip, there are a couple of courses of action we can take.

If you cancel more than 14 days before your departure date, you will lose your 10% deposit but otherwise won’t be required to pay the full balance. If you cancel 14 or fewer days in advance, you are responsible for paying for the full cost of your trip.


Can I eat and drink on my bus rental?

Food and drinks are always welcome aboard charter bus rentals! Keep in mind that a minimum $200 cleaning fee may be assessed if anything is spilled or if any trash is left o the bus—so many passengers find it best to stick to snacks and avoid messy meals.


Can I bring alcoholic beverages inside my bus rental?

It depends. For passengers to drink aboard a motorcoach, you’ll need a bus provider with a liquor license and all passengers to be 21 or older. Just let your reservation specialist know if you plan to drink alcohol on your charter bus rental, and we’ll make sure to match you with a provider that can make it happen.


Can I drive my Omaha charter bus?

No. Even if you have a CDL, we cannot permit customers to take the wheel of a bus rental in our network. Luckily, every reservation includes the services of a professional, certified bus driver with all the experience to keep your passengers safe and on time.


How much should I tip my charter bus driver?

While not necessary, tipping your bus driver is a great way to show your appreciation for all their hard work. We recommend offering a tip that’s 5% to 10% of your trip’s final cost. Tips can be provided in cash at the final drop-off, or we can roll gratuity into the overall cost of your bus rental upon request.


Do I need to pay for my driver's lodging?

By law, charter bus drivers are required to rest 8 hours for every 15 hours on the clock and for every 10 hours of driving. That means if you’re planning a multi-day group trip, you will be responsible for providing lodging for your driver. When you call your hotel to reserve a block of rooms, be sure to add one for your driver so they can hit the road well-rested and ready to go.


Do I need to pay for my driver's food?

No, your bus driver will cover their own meals and refreshments throughout your trip. However, if you’re bringing your own food aboard your Omaha charter bus, your driver will surely appreciate an offer of snacks or water.
