When you consider travel time to the airport, early check-in of several hours ahead of time, layover delays and the expense — renting a bus is often a better way to go. This is especially true when traveling in a group.
You don’t have to pack shampoo and other liquids in 3.4 ounce bottles and fit them into a quart zip-locked bag either or follow other stiff guidelines about your baggage.
Because last minute airfare is so exorbitant, most people only consider three weeks advance booking for plane travel. Your price for bus travel is not subject to such extreme price hikes. When you have a large group traveling together by bus, the affordability for each individual is typically far less than flying on a plane, even with advance airfare planning.
A study reported by Fox News reaffirms that bus travel is still more affordable than flying or even traveling by car. The study compared travel rates on planes, buses and trains between October 2013 and January 2014. It compared travel for 52 different pairs of cities at distances ranging from 100 to 500 miles. The bus was significantly cheaper than airplane travel, and when purchased 28 days in advance was 50 to 55 percent cheaper than Amtrak. It was also 30.9 percent less expensive than driving.
As a money saver, bus travel wins. But there are also many other advantages when you travel by bus. And, bus travel today has dramatically changed in terms of comfort and amenities.
