How to Calculate Your Bus Rental Cost in Houston
Have you ever wanted to rent a charter bus for your next Houston trip, but were unsure of how much it would cost? Well, the answer isn’t that straightforward. There are several factors that can determine your overall quote, such as the season, how long your trip lasts, your bus model, and more.
To help you better understand the price ranges of different bus models, use this chart below:
56-Passenger Charter Bus
25- Passenger Minibus
20- Passenger Minibus
*Chart is based off charter bus prices in Houston.
While this is just an estimate on average pricing, it’s a good starting point to build out your charter bus rental budget. However, there are several other factors that can affect your final price that you must consider.
How Charter Bus Prices are Calculated
Charter bus pricing is never the same for every trip, even if they are booked at the same time. Many factors can influence your price, including:
1. When you book
Charter bus rentals follow the supply and demand chain just like many other seasonal products and services. Peak season for charter bus rentals lasts from April to June due to graduations, summer vacations, family reunions, and more summer events. During peak months, expect to see a major spike in prices and a decrease in availability. Prices may also spike during major events like the Martin Luther King Jr Grande Parade or the Houston Dragon Boat Festival.
2. The size of your group
Because Longhorn Charter Bus has access to a wide variety of bus rentals to choose from, it’s easy for us to accommodate groups of any size. However, the size of your bus model will affect your quote. If your group is larger, you’ll want to book a bus that can comfortably fit everyone. While a large will have to pay more for a spacious charter bus, smaller groups may only need 25 seats or fewer.
3. Your trip distance and duration
Trips are charged based on length, giving longer trips a heftier price tag. While local trips (that meet the 5-hour minimum) are priced per hour, longer trips are usually priced per day or per mile. After your trip is finished, remember to tip your driver 10-15% of your quote to show your appreciation.
4. Any other outside expenses
There are a lot of other factors to consider when planning your budget that won’t be included in your overall bus rental quote. To avoid any surprises, make sure to check for any tolls on your route, whether you will need to pay for any parking permits, or other additional costs along the way. If your trip spans overnight, you are expected to cover your driver’s lodging expenses. To ensure everyone is comfortable and safe, make sure you book a room in a hotel with a 3-star rating or more for your driver.

For a better idea of what you can expect to pay, take a look at a few example quotes based on trips we’ve booked in the past:
The Fairytale Wedding
Kathryn was ready to tie the knot at her dream venue, Las Velas. With over 100 guests attending her special celebration, she wanted to ensure everyone could easily make it to the event on time and have a safe ride back, especially since her designated hotel didn’t offer shuttle services.
Kathryn’s reservation specialist suggested renting 2 full-sized charter bus rentals for everyone to fit comfortably. Because the wedding party would need the bus rentals for a large duration of the day, Kathryn was charged a daily rate of $1240 for both motorcoaches, or $12 per passenger.
Die-Hard Texans Fans
Ben, a die-hard Houston Texans fan, wanted to show support for his favorite team by rallying up his friends for the ultimate gameday. With a group of 15 fans, Ben wanted to make sure that everyone could participate in the fun without worrying about driving. They planned to be dropped off at the stadium 3 hours before the game for a tailgate party and then hit downtown for more drinks after the game.
Ben’s reservation specialist suggests an 18-passenger minibus, giving his group plenty of space and reliable transportation for the whole day. He is charged a daily rate of $600, or $40 per passenger.
The Birthday Bash
Ellen was planning her best friend’s big 30-- and what better way to do that with a personal chauffeur all across Houston. With 10 of their closest friends, they planned to hit the hottest spots for an unforgettable night.
To make sure they have endless fun wherever they go, they were recommended a party bus. With 6 hours of fun planned, their reservation specialists suggested a party bus. They were charged an hourly rate, making their total come out to $390, or $39 per person.
