You are in charge of the next company event and you’ve been given a budget that is, to say the least, challenging. What is it they say about squeezing a nickel? Well, it’s your time to make that buffalo bellow, and you know this is going to require a lot of creative thinking. As the company event coordinator, you expect to get the best bang for your buck, but on the other hand, you do want to deliver an experience the team will be talking about at the water cooler forever.
Planning the event means caring for all aspects of the affair from the venue choice and the agenda, to the accommodations and the travel … and then everything else in between. You’ve settled on the location, and although it isn’t that far, you’ve checked flights and the cost for the team to travel is staggering! A decision needs to be made quickly. Each day you procrastinate, the price of the reservations increases … and that is if they have the seats available.
Air travel may seem like the easiest choice for getting there. But is it? You travel to the airport, park your vehicle, and load up to take a shuttle to the terminal. You are greeted with long lines at check-in, for the days of ‘walk up and be waited on’ are over! You sit in an overcrowded waiting area, and if you’re lucky enough to depart on time, you’re treated to an experience that is akin to feeling like a sardine. All this is in exchange for the honor of paying for a high-priced ticket. Whatever happened to those always-empty middle seats anyway?
It is no wonder that the ever-increasing cost of airfare and the inconvenient travel experience cripples many groups from even considering joining events they have typically attended. Now it is time to think out of the box! Are you ready to take advantage of a travel alternative that will benefit your company in ways you may not expect? We offer a choice that presents the opportunity to gather your team as a unit and use that lost travel time to your advantage.
The solution is bus charter travel. Why not leave the responsibility of driving and all aspects of the transport in the hands of a seasoned, certified professional and settle your group in a chartered luxury seat, all without a care in world until you are delivered to your destination?

Not only will you be recognized as a good steward of the travel budget, you have the opportunity to take advantage of your ‘captive audience’ and maximize the team’s traveling experience.
