Tips for Traveling in NYC with a Group (Sponsored)
Traveling as a group can be tricky, especially in one of the busiest and most compact cities in the United States. As you move throughout New York City, group members can get lost, the subway routes can become confusing, and trying to travel by taxi or rideshare with a group of more than 4 people is inefficient. Driving yourself is not an option either, as finding a place to park will be extremely difficult and parking fees will quickly add up.
Instead of trying to coordinate multiple modes of travel for everyone in your group, consolidate your transportation plans with the help of a private bus rental from National Charter Bus! We help groups of all sizes travel through the city with absolute ease. When you book with us, you’re in complete control of your trip.
For a successful group trip to the Big Apple, take a look at our most important group travel tips:
1) Plan your Ideal Itinerary
Though unexpected snags are guaranteed to happen during your trip, it’s always good to have a plan for where you’d like to go and when you’d like to get there. Before booking your transportation, gather a list of every place you’d like to see and arrange an itinerary that works for you.
Remember to avoid loading up your itinerary with back-to-back stops. This can cause your trip to be more stressful than necessary, as you’ll be rushing through each stop to make it to the next attraction on time. Be sure to allot plenty of time for your group to:
-explore each destination fully
-eat 3 full meals per day at local eateries
-let your food settle after meals before moving on
-take rest breaks at your hotel in between stops
Factoring in extra time between stops will help to account for unexpected traffic delays, and may even allow more time for spontaneous stops that you hadn’t previously planned. You’ll also be able to relax and enjoy every leg of your trip without hurrying to make it to your next tour on time.
2) Choose a Bus that Accommodates Your Group
National Charter Bus offers a wide variety of bus types for groups to choose from. Large groups, such as sports teams or school groups, can book a large 56-passenger charter bus to bring them into the city and help them stay together as they travel between stops. Small groups of families and friends can rent a compact 18-passenger minibus, which is often better suited for travel within a dense city.
3) Leave the Parking and Navigation Logistics to Your Bus Company
When you book your travel with an experienced charter bus company like National Charter Bus, we take care of parking and driving hassles for you. Once you’ve given us your itinerary, our ops team will determine the best place to park your bus while you’re off exploring the city’s best attractions. A professional driver will also make sure that you’re successfully transported through the city. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your trip.
4) Secure Your Bus 3-6 Months in Advance
Once you’ve got a rough itinerary planned, it’s best to go ahead and secure a bus for your group. National Charter Bus’s reservation specialists are available 24/7 at 718-233-4974 to help choose your group’s perfect bus at the best price. Call us today to plan your next group trip to New York City!
