Charter bus rentals are a big part of tours and church, school, sports, corporate, wedding, and charitable events. One of the biggest questions associated with renting a charter bus is, how much does a charter bus cost to rent? While there isn’t a simple, straight forward answer to this questions, a charter bus rental cost depends on several factors:
. Mileage to be traveled
. Round trip or one way destinations
. Current fuel costs
. Duration of the trip in hours or days
. Size of the charter bus required such as full size, van, double decker or mini bus
. Driver costs and expected road toll costs
