Things to remember to bring on a charter bus rental

But there are lots of little ways that you can make a great trip even better. Here are some of the things you want to make certain to bring:

  1. Food and Beverages

On many trips, you’ll make regular stops for meals, but you’ll want to bring your own snacks and beverages to tide you over between stops. A good, reusable water bottle will come in handy,  whether you’re on the bus or at your destination.

  1. Comfortable Clothes, Including Shoes

Wear something that will comfortable for a long trip. Slip-on shoes are a good idea, as your bus may make a few stops. You may want to kick your shoes off when you’re on the road, but you don’t want the hassle of trying to find room to tie your shoes when the bus makes a pit stop.

  1. Personal Hygiene Items

Many of our coaches have well-appointed bathrooms, but you’ll still want to bring a toiletry bag with personal hygiene items, including hand soap or hand sanitizer, toothbrush and toothpaste and a comb or brush.

  1. Entertainment

You’ll want something to do while you’re on the road. An iPod or a DVD player, a good book or two or even a board game can help the time fly by.

  1. Sleep and Comfort Aids

If you’re traveling overnight, you may want to bring some melatonin, a sleep mask or even some earplugs. You’ll also want a travel pillow and a small blanket when you want to take a snooze.

  1. Something to Carry Your Stuff In

A purse or a backpack will come in handy, whether you’re filling it with souvenirs, leftovers from the restaurant, an extra sweater, a snack or other personal items.

  1. Sunglasses

On many of the coaches, you can pull a visor down to keep the sun out of your eyes, but a pair of sunglasses can make a long drive into the sun much more tolerable.

  1. Medication

Whether or not you’ve experienced queasiness or motion sickness on a trip before, it’s not a bad idea to have some Dramamine or other motion sickness medication. You may also be thankful if you pack some ibuprofen and something for an upset stomach, as you’ll be eating out the entire trip.

  1. Important Documents or Forms

It may seem common sense, but you want to make certain that you bring appropriate forms of identification—a drivers license or some other pictured ID is essential. In addition, make certain you have health insurance cards, any medication requirements, hotel reservations and other documents related to your trip.

  1. A Positive Attitude

You’re on vacation!! Even if the drive takes a little while, it’s better than being at work, right! So climb on board with a sense of adventure and commitment to let the small stuff be small stuff.
