Family & Friends Vacation Charter Bus Rentals
Making Memories On The Move

Celebrate, explore and reunite without worrying about the drive. CharterUP brings comfort and convenience to your group travel.

Book a Travel Charter Bus for Convenient Transportation

When you rent a charter bus through our app, you eliminate many of the typical hassles associated with group travel. Instead of calling multiple charter bus companies for quotes, you have your options laid out right in front of you. Instead of having to choose a designated driver, your bus rental comes with a professional bus driver to handle the roads and parking. Instead of fighting for a spot with your group on public transportation or splitting up your group into rideshares, you have a vehicle that can fit everybody comfortably and runs according to your schedule.

Transparent Pricing and Easy Booking

Another great thing about booking with CharterUP is the transparent charter bus pricing available through our platform. You can instantly compare and contrast prices from different charter bus providers in your area and anywhere else in the United States. We have access to thousands of vehicles, and you can compare pricing, amenities, safety records, on-time records, and more with just the tap of a finger. Don’t be left wondering about any hidden fees or pricing and travel with peace of mind knowing exactly what your bus will cost.

Book a Bus Rental for Family Vacations

Looking for safe and dependable transportation for your family? With a family bus rental, you can have reliable transportation for family vacations anywhere in the United States. Book a Chicago charter bus to see Wrigley Field and Millennium Park, an Orlando charter bus to see Disney World, and even a Seattle charter bus to see The Space Needle and Pike Place Market. All you have to do is build your dream itinerary and use our intuitive platform to make it happen. You can book a family vacation bus rental for the day, a long weekend, and even a week or more when you use the CharterUP app. You can also compare amenities, incident reports, on-time records, and more for each company.

Choose the Amenities on Your Travel Bus Rental

When you rent a charter bus for private events, you make transportation part of the experience, as opposed to an afterthought. Traveling to a sweet sixteen birthday party? Play a list of songs over the PA system to get everybody hyped up. Going on a road trip with an Atlanta charter bus to a neighboring city a few hours away? Play a movie on the TVs to help pass the time, and limit pit stops with an onboard restroom. Traveling with a sports team? Easily store luggage in the undercarriage portion of your charter bus. You can easily compare and contrast amenities available to you for each bus by using tools within our platform. We’re also proud to offer access to ADA-accessible charter bus rentals for any groups with passengers that have special mobility needs.

At CharterUP, we understand that sometimes plans change, and we’re here to help make any adjustments as smooth as possible.

Changes can only be made up to 3 days before your trip.

CharterUP’s network of more than 4,000 vehicles includes minibuses, coach buses, and luxurious motor coaches. Amenities can include reclining seats, air conditioning, on-board restrooms, Wi-Fi, power outlets, and entertainment options such as TV screens or DVD players.

Once you’ve found the perfect bus for your trip and accepted a quote, you will be directed to a payment page to confirm your reservation. At that time, a deposit of 10% will be due to secure your booking. The confirmation screen will also show the date by which the remainder of the payment is due. We require a valid credit card to be on file to secure a reservation.

Simply input your travel details and our platform will generate real-time pricing and availability from our network of hundreds of bus operators across the U.S. From there, you can compare vehicles, prices, operator reviews, on-time performance, safety records, and amenities all in one place. Once you’ve selected the bus that best fits your needs, you can book your reservation and receive confirmation right away.

While CharterUP requires one payment method on file for both the deposit and the reservation, we’ve designed our booking process with group travel in mind. Only 10 percent of the total cost is due at booking, providing ample time to coordinate payment among your group. Additionally, the reservation details can be shared with all participants, clearly displaying the final price of the reservation. This allows everyone involved to see the cost upfront and plan accordingly to pool funds and provide them to the cardholder before the trip. Our approach ensures the payment process is as streamlined and stress-free as the journey itself.

Approximately 80% of our operators allow alcohol onboard; however, this can vary based on your destination and the regulations of each locality your journey touches. During the reservation process with CharterUP, you have the opportunity to specify that you’re seeking a bus that permits alcohol. We’ll then work to match you with an operator that accommodates your needs while ensuring compliance with all local laws.

Please note, for the safety and cleanliness of the vehicle, it’s recommended to use canned drinks and plastic cups, as most providers do not allow kegs or glass bottles. Additionally, a deposit or cleaning fee may be required to cover potential messes. If underage passengers are onboard, certain conditions, including the presence of chaperones, must be met to prevent underage drinking in accordance with state laws, such as California’s bill AB 45. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your journey is both enjoyable and compliant with all legal requirements, so let us know your needs, and we’ll handle the details.
