7 Important Factors to Look for while Hiring a Bus Charter Service in Singapore
If you are traveling in a large group and want to move around Singapore, a bus charter is an excellent option because you can stay together, can stop anywhere you want, spend whatever time at various sights and can eat, dance, sing, chat and have fun together in a private environment of the bus, as compared to a public transportation service. What to look for while booking a bus charter in Singapore? Let’s see.
1. Do a Background Check of the Company
Before making a final decision on choosing a bus chartering Singapore, you should do a background check of the companies you have shortlisted. First off, find at least 5-6 bus chartering companies that you find suitable to your needs. Next, go to their websites and collect as many details about the company as possible. This should include the number of years they are in the business, their chauffeurs, their fleet, the occasions or events on which they offer their service and so on. Read feedback and reviews of their past customers and if possible contact some of them to ask how their experience was with the company. Also discuss on forums to get feedback about the company.
2. What’s the Size?
The type of chartered bus you will need depends on the size of your group. If your group consists of 6 to 12 people, a maxi bus is sufficient for you, while if there are more than 15 members in your group, you should consider a minibus.
3. Check Track Records
Make sure you check the track record of the company from the safety point of view. Check whether the company has a flawless record of transporting their clients safely and comfortably.
4. Check License
This very important point is often forgotten by clients to check. You should check whether the bus charter company has a proper certification or operating license for their business, vehicles and drivers.
5. Cleanliness and Hygiene
Another important point to check is how clean, tidy and hygienic their vehicles are. Especially you should check whether the bathrooms are clean and if there are sufficient trash cans inside the bus.
6. Special Amenities
While all minibuses and maxi cab services provide all standard facilities, you would like to make sure if they are able to provide any special facility that your group may particularly need.
Shop around to check the rates of various companies. Also don’t forget to check rates against amenities they are providing. Make sure also that there would be no hidden costs.
If you check all the above points, you can have full fun in a Singapore bus charter and enjoy this lovely country to the fullest.
