Charter bus prices in Denver vary based on the season, availability of buses, the size of your group, local events, the distance and length of your trip, and the model of bus you rent. When you call us at 303-495-2341 and tell us about your trip and the needs of your group, we’ll calculate a free, personalized quote for your charter bus rental over the phone.
Your total quote will include fuel, full liability insurance, the cost of professional driver service, and use of your bus for the duration of your trip, which is typically charged per hour or per day. Be mindful that some costs and fees won’t be included in your quote, such as driver gratuity, parking fees, cleaning fees, and lodging for your driver for an overnight trip. We recommend carrying cash with you onboard to be prepared for any fees not included in your quote that are related to your trip.
If you’d like to tip your driver, we recommend a cash tip that’s 5-10% of the cost of your trip.
After your charter bus rental reservation is made, you must pay a deposit of 10-30% of the total cost of your trip. The full balance is due no later than 14 days prior to your trip. You can pay by check, credit card, or via wire/ACH. If your organization wants to use a purchase order, let your reservation specialist know when you call.
If you need to cancel your charter bus rental booking, it’s important to do so at least 14 days before your trip. At this point, you won’t be asked to pay the full cost of your rental, however, we won’t be able to refund your deposit. If you cancel with 14 or fewer days before your trip, unfortunately, we won’t be able to process a refund and you will need to pay the full cost of your charter bus rental.

In general, your driver and reservation specialist will know all the ins and outs of your trip, including where to park your charter bus rental. However, you may be responsible for finding parking at hotels, event venues, and any location where the bus needs to wait for you for an hour or more. In the event you need to do this, your reservation specialist will let you know. To find parking at a hotel or event venue, try calling their customer service for information about the best places for charter bus or oversized vehicle parking.
Drivers can only operate a bus for 10 consecutive hours, so if your trip is long-distance or multi-day, then yes, they’re legally required to take an 8-hour break. Please note that you will need to book a private hotel room for your driver if you’re planning an overnight trip, and the cost of the room isn’t included in your quote. Some hotels offer deals for group stays, so give your hotel a call to ask about their policy for booking rooms for your charter bus driver.
Ultimately, your driver is responsible for their own meals, even during overnight stays. However, if you bring your own food and drink on the bus, feel free to offer your driver a snack or cold beverage!
Yes, food and drinks are allowed on most motorcoaches. We recommend limiting your food and beverage choices to options that are easy to transport and difficult to spill in order to avoid a mess.

In most cases, yes, you can bring alcohol aboard your charter bus rental and drink it onboard. When you call us to book your bus, mention your plans to drink on your charter bus so your reservation specialist can provide you with the best information and type of bus to meet your needs.
