When you're considering travel options for your bachelor party, there are a plethora of options to choose from. The most economical route would be to use a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft, but if you want to travel in style, then a limousine or a party bus rental is going to be your best option. Limousines have long been the go-to option for classy travel, but party buses have risen in popularity in recent years. Everyone knows what they're going to get with a limousine. However, not everyone knows what they're going to get with a party bus.
The main advantage of renting a limousine is that it will be more cost effective. It will still be about as much per person as renting a party bus, but because limousines are meant to hold about 10 people, the pricing evens out. If you put 10 people on a party bus you'll be paying a lot more per person since the total cost is higher.
Limousines have been a staple of high-end group travel for decades and they are instantly recognizable. If you want to impress passersby, then you can't go wrong with a limo. Typically associated with events ranging from red carpet events in Hollywood to high school proms, limos have been a public mainstay for a reason.
Limousines are also good if you want privacy. If you're traveling with a smaller group (or perhaps just your significant other), then the tinted windows of a limo can provide the perfect amount of privacy (and in some cases, an aura of mystery) for you. This is preferred by some customers, and if you are one of them then a limo is probably the way to go.
With a limousine, you'll be fairly limited in the number of people you can bring with you. Most limousines have a capacity of 12, though you can find some stretch limousines that allow for up to 16 people. You also want to consider the space inside a limousine. Limousines are low to the ground and if you fill them to capacity, then there won't really be any space to move around. It can also start to feel a bit cramped.
Limousines are good for transportation from Point A to Point B, but if you want to spend the majority of your night in the vehicle, it won't be the most comfortable option. You're typically going to be seated low to the ground with limited mobility, and if you do decide to move around you'll be crawling over the other passengers to get where you need to go.
Limos are often seen as the formal way to travel as well, so if you're going on a pub crawl or to a gentlemen's club, a limo may not exactly be the look you are going for. Plus, some might view going in a limousine to be a little too obvious. After all, doesn't everyone travel in a limousine for their big bash?
We've covered the reasons you should choose a party bus before, but let's go into a bit more detail with the pros and cons of choosing a party bus:
Let's start with the main advantage: you've got more space! If you have 20-30 people in your group, your choice is to rent one party bus or rent multiple limousines. Renting a party bus allows you to keep everyone in your group together so everyone can enjoy the party, but it also acts as a nightclub on wheels. There is tons of space to move around the vehicle (though not when it is moving, of course).
Party buses will also feature cool amenities like flat-screen TVs, music streaming capabilities, video game systems, karaoke and more! Some limousines will have TV screens or neon lights and most will have a wet bar or a place to chill your champagne, but a party bus has all of that and more.
Many customers' deciding factor in a party bus vs. a limousine is price, and in that regard party buses have limousines beat. While the overall price of a party bus will likely be greater than that of a limousine, it winds up being less per person since you can fit up to 30 people in most party buses.
Everything is in a name: a party bus is meant to be for a party. This doesn't mean you can't use a party bus for any event you wish, but if you were to go to, let's say, a funeral in a party bus, then some people may find your choice of vehicle to be a bit tacky. Sometimes a party bus isn't the best choice of vehicle for the occasion. A good rule of thumb? If it's not a party (of sorts), then don't get a party bus.
If you're not planning on being on the road for very long, a party bus isn't really the best option for you either. The whole point of renting a party bus is to spend time partying on it, so if you're simply trying to get from Point A to Point B (and they aren't very far apart), then spending the money on a party bus is a little pointless. Why spend money on it if you're not going to enjoy it!

I had not taken into account how a party bus may have limits as to what events it can be used for. When the time comes where I need to rent a vehicle, I will be sure to look into what services they can provide to me before I make the call. My daughter is interested in having a party with her friends at an amusement park, so I am looking into renting a bus as a way to more effectively carpool.

I like that you pointed out that on a party bus you have more space. My brother's birthday is soon and I want to take him out for a night on the town but I wasn't sure what kind of transportation we wanted to take. After reading this article, I think I'll start looking for party bus rentals.

It's great to hear that party buses can accommodate groups of 20-30 people. My younger sister is turning 21 next month, and I want to make her party as fun and memorable as possible. I think it would be great to take her and all of her friends on a party bus downtown.

You made an interesting point when you mentioned that limousines are good to use if you are traveling in a smaller group. Would it be a good idea to use a limousine service if you are wanting to take your family on some kind of tour? I would imagine that using a limousine service would be a good idea because of how comfortable they can be.
