To give you a ballpark idea, here are some sample quotes for requests we’ve gotten from our customers:
A high school in Cary is organizing a field trip for its junior class to visit college campuses in the Raleigh area. There are 150 students who need transportation. The school decides to rent two 56-passenger charter buses from our company for a day trip. They will pick up the students from the high school at 8 AM, visit NC State and UNC Chapel Hill, have lunch on campus, and return by 4 PM. For an 8 hour rental of two buses, the total quote comes out to $2,400 ($120 per hour x 8 hours x 2 buses). This covers reliable transportation for the entire junior class to explore potential colleges. The charter buses have amenities like AC, TVs, and wifi to make the ride comfortable. Our experienced team also knows the area well. This makes charter buses a great option for school trips of this nature in the Cary area.
For corporate events in Cary, we recently provided transportation for a team building outing organized by a Fortune 500 technology company based in the Research Triangle Park area. The organizer wanted to arrange a fun day trip for 25 of their top regional sales managers meeting in Cary for their annual kickoff meeting. She booked one of our luxury 31 passenger charter buses for a full day to shuttle the group around to different team building activities she had arranged. The bus picked the group up at their hotel at 9AM and was booked until 5PM to allow plenty of time for their full itinerary. For this 8 hour charter, the total cost was $1,680. This included pickup and dropoff at their hotel, unlimited mileage within Cary for the day, and our expert charter bus team to comfortably transport them. With 25 passengers, this worked out to only $67 per person for their transportation for the day. The organizer added an 18% tip for exemplary service, bringing the total to $1,983.20.
One of our most popular trips is taking local sports teams to away games across North Carolina. For example, we recently took a youth basketball team from Cary to Charlotte for a weekend tournament, a 2 hour drive each way. We provided a 56 passenger coach bus with leather seats, TVs, WiFi, and plenty of legroom to make the ride comfortable. Since it was a 4 hour roundtrip on a Saturday, and we provided the bus for 8 hours to allow time for the games, the total cost was $960. With 20 players, 5 coaches, and 30 parents attending, the cost per person came out to only $32. Trips like these let the team bond on the ride, arrive comfortably without worrying about directions or parking, and focus on the game rather than logistics. Our coaches allow the team to travel in comfort and style.
A popular day trip option from Cary is heading east to the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks. For a one day beach getaway, we recommend taking a charter bus rental to Nags Head. The total driving time is just under 5 hours, so we would recommend leaving Cary around 6 AM. For a 56 passenger coach bus with restroom, TVs, and WiFi, the rate would be $170 per hour. Leaving at 6 AM and returning by 9 PM would be 15 hours total, bringing the grand total to $2,550. With tip, the total cost for 56 people comes out to only $47 per person. Considering the convenience of riding together in comfort versus driving separate cars, and not having to worry about parking, our charter buses are a great value for beach trips from Cary.

A couple planned their dream wedding in Cary and wanted to provide easy transportation for their 75 out-of-town guests staying at various hotels. They booked one of our luxury 56 passenger charter buses for the entire wedding day to shuttle guests between the hotel, ceremony, and reception. The total rental time was 10 hours to allow for plenty of flexibility. For a Saturday in peak wedding season, the rate for the luxury 56 passenger bus was $150 per hour plus our 20% peak season surcharge. This brought the total for their Cary charter bus rental to $1,800 plus gratuity. The couple felt the cost was well worth it for the convenience it provided their guests, and the luxury bus added an element of style and sophistication to their special day. With 75 passengers, it ended up being around $24 per person which is very comparable to other transportation options in Cary for groups.
