Renting a Party Bus: Top Tips to Make the Most of It

Two years ago I fulfilled my dream of buying a campervan and travelling around Australia for a year. Travelling this way allowed me freedom to change my plans at the last minute and kept costs down. I now use my campervan to tour the country for shorter periods, and I started this blog to share my experiences of travelling this way and share the beautiful places I've been lucky enough to visit, such as Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Bondi Beach and Great Ocean Road. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and find it useful if you're planning your own Australian adventure.

Renting a Party Bus: Top Tips to Make the Most of It

Do you think it's high time you tried something new with a party? Hell yes! You do not have to stick to traditions and hold a party in the comfort of your home, some fancy restaurant or that big lawn you have at the office. Throw in something out of the ordinary and have the party on the move. Yes, on a rented party bus. The incredible two-in-one package that allows you to enjoy the lovely company of those around you and the ability to change locations any time you want. Here is a piece that will help you make the most of a rented bus party:

Plan Early 

Like all parties, renting a party bus is key to ensuring that you have a successful trip and event. Take stock of all those who will be attending so that you can hire a bus with the right capacity. Additionally, take note of anyone with special needs that may need a customised bus for everyone's convenience. For example, a physically challenged person in a wheelchair needs a ramp for accessing the bus and fasteners to hold the wheelchair in place when the vehicle is moving. These simple yet necessary accessories will make things convenient for everyone at the party.

Decoration and Themes

As much as the party is on a bus, going for the full package of a traditional party will make the standards legendary. This is in reference to decorations and a theme for the event. Begin by talking to your service provider so that you can understand the type of decorations that they allow. Generally, a good vendor should let you play around with the interior and exterior look of the bus provided the changes temporary. Some of the recommended decorations include stickers, streamers, banners, and balloons. After the party, you can easily take them down without a horrendous cleaning fee. Your crew should also hype up the party with costumes like masks, custom clothes, hats and wigs.

Food and Drinks

A party in a bus is slightly different from what you would have had at home or in a fancy hotel. You don't have lots of space to work with in terms of cooking, doing dishes and serving people. On that note, avoid going for a traditional dinner party. A cocktail-like party will do. Keep the snacks light, well packaged and easy to serve. This will keep the place clean. Some suggestions you can carry include popcorn and chips. You can always stop by a place and have other foods if need be.
