Understand Your Group’s Needs
Every group is unique. Before diving into the planning, understand the specific needs of your group:
Size: The number of passengers will determine the type or number of buses you’ll need.
Amenities: Do you need Wi-Fi, power outlets, restrooms, or any specific accessibility feature on board?
Duration: Is it a short trip or a long journey? This affects the type of coach and amenities required.
Choose the Right Motorcoach
Arrow Stage Lines offers a diverse fleet of modern buses tailored for different needs:
Luxury Coaches: Ideal for corporate events or VIP tours. Perfect for tours, school trips, sports team, or any group event.
Specialized Coaches: Equipped for specific needs, such as accessibility features.
Plan Your Route
Decide on pick-up and drop-off points. If your event spans multiple days, consider the daily routes. With Arrow Stage Lines’ expert drivers, you can also get insights into the best routes to avoid traffic and ensure timely arrivals.
It’s not just about the event day. Consider:
Pre-event: When will the bus be loaded? Is there a pre-event briefing for attendees?
Event Day: Schedule breaks, especially for longer journeys. Allocate time for unexpected delays.
Post-event: Ensure there’s a system for check-out so no belongings are left behind.
