CHARTER: What is a charter and how much do they cost?
Answer: A charter is a temporary lease of our vehicle and driver. When a group wants to take a trip somewhere they will reserve a coach for the trip that they have planned. This is a charter. Charter prices depend on the mileage, destination, days of charter service, and coach usage. We invite you to submit a free quote request with no obligation. Chartering is generally a very economical mode of group travel.
