Example #1

A middle school teacher in New Orleans wants to take her class on an educational field trip to the National WWII Museum. She plans to bring 30 students from her 8th grade American history class. After looking at school bus options, she decides a charter bus would be more comfortable for the 45 minute drive each way. She gets a quote from a New Orleans charter bus company for a 56 passenger bus at $150 per hour. The teacher plans the trip from 9am to 3pm, so it will be a 6 hour rental. With taxes and fees, the total quote comes to $975. The charter bus company offers a 5% discount for schools, bringing it down to $926.25. To make it more affordable, the teacher divides the cost between the 30 students. Each student pays $30 for comfortable transportation and an air conditioned bus for their field trip. The teacher tips the driver 10% at $92.63 for excellent service. The total cost comes to $1,018.88 or about $34 per student.

Example #2

A corporate event planner in New Orleans is organizing an annual sales conference for her company’s top performers from around the country.

To make transportation easy during their stay, she decides to book a charter bus for group outings to local attractions like the National WWII Museum, Oak Alley Plantation, and a Mississippi River cruise. She rents a 56-passenger charter bus for 8 hours a day for all 3 days of the conference. The 8-hour daily rate for a charter bus that size in New Orleans is $1,400. For all 3 days, the total comes out to $4,200. She also tips the driver 10% at the end of each day, adding an extra $420 over the 3 days. The total cost of the New Orleans charter bus rental for her corporate event is $4,620.

Example #3

A high school football team from a small town outside New Orleans is headed to the state championship game in the Big Easy. The team has 45 players, 5 coaches, and a group of very enthusiastic parents who want to cheer on the team. In total, their group size is 85 people. To make transportation easy for the big game, they decide to rent a charter bus in New Orleans. They price out a 56 passenger charter bus for a one day rental during their stay. The charter bus company quotes them $165 per hour to have the bus at their disposal from 8am to 11pm on game day. This comes out to a total of $2,970 for a 15 hour rental to provide roundtrip transportation from their hotel to the stadium and around the city. With such a large group, chartering a bus is much more affordable than booking a fleet of taxis or rideshares, and provides a comfortable way for their team and fans to travel together. To show their appreciation, the team decides to tip the charter bus driver 10% for excellent service, bringing their total to $3,267. While a splurge, it provides lasting memories for the team’s championship run.
