How to Choose the Perfect Party Bus for Your Needs
If you’ve never rented a party bus before, there are a few considerations that will help you make the correct choice. While capacities are listed for each vehicle, it’s best to have some extra room based on your needs. If you’re just going from your hotel on the strip to dinner somewhere nearby, you can definitely go up to capacity as it will be a short trip.
However, if you’re planning a multi-hour outing we’d recommend having one spare seat for every two people. So if you’re renting a 40 passenger party bus, keep the group below 27 people. This will give everyone room to move around, relax, dance a little, and enjoy themselves!
If you’re balling out and renting a party bus for a road trip from LA to Las Vegas, we’d recommend 1 spare seat for each person. So for twenty people, plan on reserving a 40 person rig.
You also need to factor in how long you plan to spend on the bus. If you’re club hopping, no big deal, but if you’re going to spending significant time on the bus, consider renting Dueces, which has onboard restroom facilities!
Does your party have significant luggage requirements? Pay special attention to the luggage capacity of each vehicle.
Do you plan to have a lavish rowdy party? Consider busses with 1 or even 2 dancer poles. You never know who may want to channel their inner stripper! If you have a more buttoned-up corporate event, ask to have the poles removed, or book a party bus with no poles included.
Still not sure which party bus is right for you? Give Vegas Party People a call, and their experts will help you select the perfect vehicle for your needs and budget.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO RENT A PARTY BUS?
Party Bus and Limo Transportation are priced two ways in Las Vegas. The most common quote is hourly. Meaning the bus is yours to go wherever you want for the duration of the agreement. They will wait outside if you’re in a club, gambling, watching a show, or shopping.
The second and more affordable price structure is based on one-way transportation. You’ll be picked up and your start location and dropped off at your destination.
This is called a Pick & Drop. After you’re dropped off, the vehicle proceeds to the next booking. Meaning if you schedule two Pick & Drops, you will not be able to leave anything on the bus between your bookings. If you book hourly, the vehicle is yours exclusively and you can leave your drinks, jacket, or other belongings on the bus if you wish.
On Vegaspartypeople.com they have rates listed for many of their vehicles below. The price at the top is the hourly rate, and the Pick & Drop rate is listed below.
If you have any questions about how to structure your trip, just give them a call and they can tailor the itinerary to meet your needs and budget.
How Much Should I Tip the Driver?
The packages all have gratuity included in the pricing. If you feel your driver exceeded expectations and would like to give them an additional tip. that’s always appreciated but never required. The team will always appreciate a little extra love!
Keep in mind their competitors don’t include gratuity in their pricing and the industry standard is 20%, which will be tacked on to your bill. You’re buying a service, so be very wary of low-cost operators, there’s a reason why they are so cheap!
What Other Fees Should I Expect to Pay?
Their rates and packages have all the costs included in the price. Often their competitors will charge you a fuel surcharge, which can vary wildly. There’s also a Nevada excise tax fee. Airport pickups and drop-offs require a $30 Department of Aviation fee.
If you see any fees beyond that, you’re being ripped off!
Again, their pricing includes gratuity, fuel surcharges, Nevada excise taxes, you pay nothing above the listed price, ever! (Airport Fee not included)
How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Party Bus from Los Angeles to Las Vegas?
You can easily figure out how much it costs to get a round-trip party bus to your city by looking up the travel time on Google maps and then multiply that time by 2.5. Why two and a half? They have to drive to LA to pick you up, that’s one, then back to Las Vegas, that’s 2 times. Then they have to do that there and back one more time for the last part of the trip.
They discount the dead rides (where nobody is on the bus) to cover their fuel costs and to keep the price reasonable.
So LA to Vegas is 4 to 4.5 hours depending on your pickup location, so let’s use 4.5 to be safe. That means you can get a top of the line party bus for only $4050 bucks. That seats 40 people so it’s potentially about $100 per person!

Avoid the #1 Biggest Mistake When Choosing a Party Bus Company
Shopping by price. Sure everyone loves to save some money, but when you rent a party bus, you buying a service. The cheapest services have to cut corners to preserve profit margins.
Sure, if you’re shopping for electronics on Amazon, you can shop price and get the same product for a few bucks less at various outlets. When the product arrives, it will likely be exactly the same as if you’d bought it from another vendor at a higher price.
This is not true when buying services. Yes the rates at Vegas Party People may be slightly higher. but…
What is it worth for your goup to have:
- Professional & Knowlegable Driver who is enthusiastic about your booking and will go the extra mile to ensure your group has a great time?
- A clean and fully operational vehicle?
- On-time service?
- Seamless purchasing process with generous refund policy?
The budget operators will cut corners, that’s the one thing you can bet on in Las Vegas. Look around you. Do you own the cheapest shoes or clothes? Or do you pay a little more for quality?
When you’re price shopping, be sure to figure the difference in total price and then divide it by the size of your group. It’s worth a few extra dollars per person to ensure everything goes off without a hitch!
Paying a little more for your party bus service definitely pays off everytime. Nobody will remember if you saved $50 on your booking if the night is a disaster! But nobody will complain paying a few extra bucks if the night is amazing!
What Are the Party Bus Interiors Like?
All of the vehicles have plush interiors with custom lighting and serious sound systems. You can configure the lighting from wild to mild, and the poles are removable, should you have a corporate event.
Additional Tips for Vegas Party Bus Rentals
It wouldn’t be much of party if you couldn’t!
Q. Do They Provide Alcohol?
A. No, they aren’t licensed to sell or serve alcohol, BUT they usually make the first stop a world-class liquor store where you can get whatever you want for way cheaper than if they resold it to you!
It ensures you get exactly what you want, and keeps the costs for the booking down.
Q. What Happens if We Need to Cancel Our Reservation?
A. Vegas Party People has a very generous cancellation policy. If you have any questions give them a call. If you know you need to cancel, notify them as quickly as possible.
Q. How Far in Advance Should I Book My Reservation?
A. Sooner is always better than later. If you’re booking for a busy holiday weekend, wedding season, bachelor party season, or there is a big event in town like a UFC fight or big boxing match, definitely book as far in advance as possible.
If you just need a couple of pick and drops during a weeknight they can usually accommodate same day or next-day bookings.
Q. Can We Smoke or Vape on the Bus?
Q. What Happens if Someone Barfs on the Bus?
A. Unless they are able to contain the vomit in a barf bag or other sealed vessel, there’s a cleanup fee of $500. They’re dealing with a biohazard and the bus will be out of commission until it’s thoroughly cleaned.
Just don’t barf on the bus bro, it’s not worth it!
If you’re getting sick, or notice someone in your party is looking a little ill, let the driver know so they can try to pull over. Get the guest in an Uber back to the hotel. It’s much cheaper than the cleanup fee!
Selling it to Your Group
Whether you’re planning a wedding, corporate event, birthday, bachelor party, or just a night on the town in Las Vegas, you want to travel in a stylish party bus. The transportation you select sets the tone for the entire night. Get it right, and you’re priming your group to have an unforgettable night. Get it wrong, well, that could spell disaster.
The key question you need to answer is:
How much is it worth to my group to arrive in style, have plenty of room, and be surrounded by luxury as we travel?
Your transportation should be a pleasure, a bragging point, not something that must be endured and suffered through, right? Imagine your party pictures standing in front of one of the beautiful vehicles below. Think of the shares you’ll get!
The good news is if you do a little research and planning, you can rent an amazing party bus, fully decked out, for not much more money than cramming everyone into cabs or rideshares.
Justifying the Expense
Suppose you have 25 people that you need to move around for a birthday party. Even the most expensive party bus costs $300 for a pickup at your hotel, and drop at the venue of your choice on the strip. So to move all your people, in style, both ways is $24 per person. Drinks cost more than that at most bars and clubs in Las Vegas!
Suppose you wanted to rent the party bus for 5 hours, the most expensive option is $360/hour, or $14.40 per hour per person. For the whole night, it’s only $72 per person. A small price to pay to live the VIP life!
Just break it down to a per person price and they’ll see it’s quite reasonable!
