All Drive Your Own Vehicles

One option is to all drive your own vehicles to the venue or outing. It isn’t the most eco-friendly way to get there nor is it sustainable travel and will require the entire group to have their own vehicles. This will also be the costliest means of getting to where the group wants to be. As we all become more climate-conscious, this may not be the best way to think about getting around. It is the top means of travel and yet really needs to be reconsidered as an option for the larger group outings and events.

Call a Cab 

This is generally the other go to option, you can book a taxi, let them know how many are in the group and hope that they actually come with the right sized vehicle. Then there is the waiting. These are the most common issues with this particular option and although it is a top choice for many, unless the firm that you book is dependable and known by you, then chances are that there may be one or two of you who need to call an additional taxi if you don’t all fit.

Large groups are always a difficult call for the taxi firm, they always say yes and generally turn up with the wrong transport solution.

Hire a Minibus 

This is becoming the most popular option for larger groups. Visit them online, for instance at theminibuscentre.com, to see, inspect and choose the exact vehicle that your group will need. Once you know it will suit your purpose, you can either ensure that you have a driver in the group with the right licenses or hire a driver. This is perhaps one of the best options in that it is eco-friendly as well cost effective. Your group has most control and is likely the safest option. 

Hiring a minibus for activities like group sightseeing and tourism in a new city or different state is one of the best means of seeing the things in the city you visit that the group chooses. It’s this control and choice that the minibus option provides most.

Buy a Suitable Vehicle

One of the options that is increasingly gaining popularity is to buy or even lease a vehicle for the duration of the trip or for the event. This is only a cost-effective option if the group plans to travel on a regular basis. 

There are several options for large group travel and those mentioned and discussed herein are the ones that are most commonly chosen. The best advice is to ensure that you keep safety at the forefront of your mind as you make the final decision as to how your group will travel.
