The Benefits of Using Charter Buses to Travel With Sports Teams

Charter bus travelCharter buses are a great and affordable way to travel with large groups. In fact, there are many benefits to renting charter buses for travel. If you coach a team and are looking to take the team somewhere to compete, a charter bus from Misioneros Bus Lines can help you get there. Here are some of the benefits of traveling by bus.

Benefit #1: Have the Bus to Yourselves

With a charter bus, you don’t have to worry about sharing the space with a bunch of strangers. You can get cozy and relax with the team on the way to the big game or meet. This will make the trip more comfortable and allow you to worry less.

Benefit #2: Comfort

Unlike a plane or a car, charter buses offer a bit more room to stretch around. You can also get up and stretch your legs a bit. Plus, you can choose where you sit, unlike most airlines, so you can guarantee your comfort.

Benefit #3: Fewer Packing Restrictions

With buses, there are fewer packing restrictions than there are with planes and cars. Planes have so many crazy rules that it can be hard to pack correctly. With charter buses, you aren’t restricted by the same strict airline rules. Plus, you usually have more space for your suitcases under the bus than you would in a van or car. This way, you can pack everything you need and take a few snacks with you for the ride.

Benefit #4: Opportunity for Talks and Team Building

With the mobility you have with charter buses, you can use the time you spend traveling to talk and hang out with your teammates, do little team building exercises (mostly verbal since there isn’t that much room), and have nice conversations with the people on the bus. These activities are limited on cars and planes, but you can really take advantage of them on a charter bus.

Benefit #5: Affordability

It can be pricey to travel with a large team, but it would be sad if your team couldn’t travel for a game because of expensive travel. Charter buses are much more affordable than cars and planes for large groups, so you can travel to that next big game and not have to worry so much.

5 Tips for Planning Your Next Adventure

Man and woman making vacation plans using the world map. Couple sitting by the map and exploring it.You never know when the next journey is going to call to your heart, so you want to be ready just in case adventure strikes. Going on journeys can be a life-changing, beautiful thing. These five tips can help you plan your next journey, whatever that may be.

Tip #1: Pick a Destination

You don’t have to go far to have an adventure. Even just hopping on a bus and going one city over can put you in the middle of a new journey. Knowing where you want to go, whether you’ve thought about it for a long time or it came to you randomly, will help you plan for it logistically and financially.

Tip #2: Keep a Bag Packed

Imagine getting off the phone with your best friend who is eager for a quick trip away, but you haven’t done laundry in a long time and have nothing to wear. Having a bag packed allows for a quick weekend getaway trip without the stress of needing to wash clothes so you have something to wear.

Tip #3: Use a Piggy Bank

While you can totally go on vacation while on a budget, it’s best to save for it, so you don’t catch yourself in a sticky situation. So why not put away some change every now and then to save up for it? Having a piggy bank or bank account to put aside a little bit of money every now and then can help you plan your next trip. Yes, you have bills and a lifestyle to pay for, but saving a little here and there can go a long way.

Tip #4: Have an Open Mind

Imagine this: your best friend called you and said they’re going to some random town a couple of hours away. The last you heard this place is boring and doesn’t offer much—it certainly isn’t Fiji or the Bahamas. Should you go?

We always say: “Yes!” You never know what kind of adventure you may have going to a new place, no matter how boring it is. Having an open mind means you can make the most out of any situation and have a lot of fun, so what are you waiting for?

Tip #5: Find the Best in Transportation

Unless you’re going abroad, there’s no reason why you can’t save a few bucks by taking a bus to your desired destination. And if you go with a company that has daily bus routes, your impromptu journey can be planned quickly and be affordable.

Tips for Planning an Affordable Summer Vacation

But vacations are a way to bring your family closer together and to get away from the humdrum of life for a bit. You come back a little more tanned, rejuvenated, and happy. With bus rides from Misioneros Bus Lines, you can plan a fun, affordable vacation that the whole family can enjoy.

Tip #1: Pack the Essentials

While you don’t want to overpack while traveling, it’s a good idea to try to bring all the essentials with you, including toiletries, bathing suits, and underwear. The last thing you want is to have to spend a bunch of money on things like these once you get to where you’re going for vacation.

Tip #2: Save Money on Breakfast

Whether your hotel offers free breakfast or you purchase a few boxes of cereal or frozen sausage biscuits, eating an affordable breakfast in your hotel room can help you save a lot of money in the long run. Plus, it gives you more time in the day to lounge around on the beach or get in line early at the amusement parks.

Tip #3: Find the Deals

Much like you would coupons in the Sunday paper, there are many deals you can bank on when going on vacation. From travel to entertainment, keeping an eye out for the best deals can help you save money, extend your vacation, and do more with your family.

Tip #4: Alternative Housing

Hotels can be incredibly expensive, especially when traveling for long periods of time. Staying in places like hostels and AirBNBs is a surefire way to save money. Just be sure these places accommodate families. It’s often different when traveling alone and some of these places are designed for lone travelers and small groups. Call ahead to make sure it is ideal for you and your family.

Tip #5: Alternative Travel: Bus Rides

If you’re not traveling too far or across the ocean, you can save money by not taking a plane. Plane tickets are often super expensive, but taking alternative forms of travel like driving or bus rides can save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

Misioneros Bus Lines offers bus rides to places all over the United States and Mexico. Check out our routes online and learn more about our charter bus services today! We look forward to taking you where you need to go.

Packing Tips for Long Bus Rides

woman trying to close an overstuffed suitcaseTaking the bus to your desired destination is becoming more and more common, especially with the rising cost of airfare. Packing for a bus trip can be quite different than packing for a trip by plane. These tips can help make packing for your vacation and upcoming bus rides a breeze.

Tip #1: Make the Most of Storage Under the Bus

Unlike airlines, you don’t have to pay to store your suitcase for bus rides. While this doesn’t mean you should pack everything you own, it does give you more freedom with what you can pack. If you choose to take only one suitcase, which is typically recommended on trips since it is better to pack light, there are many things you can do to get the most out of your space. For packing clothes, you have two options: roll your clothes or store them in storage cubes. Rolling your clothes is good because it saves a lot of space while storage cubes are good if you’re going for an extended period of time. The storage cubes essentially turn your suitcase into a dresser and you have a dedicated space for each item of clothing, like your shirts, undergarments, and slacks, if you’re traveling somewhere where you’ll need to dress professionally.

Tip #2: Be Smart With What You Put in Your Carry On

If it’s going to be a long bus ride, there are a few things you can do to better prepare for it. One, don’t forget the snacks. Storing some granola bars, chips, and extra waters in your bag is great because it alleviates the need to buy some while you’re already on the trip, meaning you can spend your money on more souvenirs and attractions.

It’s also a good idea to pack disposable toothbrushes and flossers, so you can clean your teeth without having to rely on a sink, along with wipes and deodorant. You might not get the chance to shower in between being on the bus for hours and heading out to your first stop at your destination. It may also be a good idea to bring dry shampoo for this reason, especially if you have oily hair and skin. This way, you can look your best and not have to worry about showering until you make it back to your hotel.

Tip #3: Bring Forms of Entertainment With You

Bus rides can be long, but they’re a good opportunity for you to rest, relax, and catch up on work you may be behind on. Our buses have free WiFi, so you can bring your laptop along to catch up on things for work or school or even just to play around and take Buzzfeed quizzes. Whatever the case may be, take advantage of your time during long bus rides, so you can make the most out of your trip.
