How Chartering a Bus Saves Your Business Money

Posted by Red Arrow on Aug 11, 2016 9:07:00 AM


As a business owner, you’re all too familiar with the expenses that come with running a company. From salaries and bonuses, to rent and electric, it can seem as if the costs of running a business just keep piling up. While there are some things you just can’t avoid paying, you do have the power to reduce costs where you can.

One line item where you can reduce your costs is employee transportation. Using Red Arrow luxury coaches will save you money for multiple business ventures, be it conferences, work retreats, travel for meetings, or daily employee transportation. Here are a few reasons how chartering a bus saves your business money:

Flying is Expensive

Depending on when you’re flying, rates can be astronomical. Especially if you’re covering the cost of travel for a large group of staff, your grand total will be quite high. And not only are there costs involved with flying, but there are extra expenses you’ll need to consider before sending your staff to the airport.  Think about gas getting to the airport, rideshare, taxi, or parking fees, and even luggage costs — all these pesky expenses are things you may have to reimburse once the trip is over.

Driving is Expensive

Just like flying, there are costs incurred by organizations who reimburse employees for travel expenses when they take their own vehicles. Things like parking, gas, and wear and tear of vehicles might not be much of an expense when it’s just for one employee, but if you’re coordinating the travel of multiple employees, the cost of driving personal vehicles is considerable.

Why Charter a Bus?

Corporate charters are a great option for businesses looking to cut down on travel costs for their employees. Red Arrow allows companies to save on reimbursement fees for gas, parking, and any additional (and hidden) expenses that could be incurred. With Red Arrow, you’ll incur just one expense, you’ll understand and know the fee up front, and best of all, it’ll be less expensive than the alternative!

Additionally, we understand that time is money. More often than not, you’ll expect your staff to work during plane flights. And, on top of the added fee, WiFi on planes is horrible — email rarely loads, spreadsheets won’t populate, and don’t even get us started on streaming music.

Travelling on Red Arrow luxury coaches allows your employees an uninterrupted flow in their work day. With our complimentary WiFi your employees can work on reports, check emails, and stay in touch with co-workers; consider our coaches their office-on-the-go. Red Arrow’s high-speed internet allows your team to stay productive during essential travel time to do what they do best — make your business money.  

If you have a smaller group (13-25 passengers), no problem! You can charter a mini-coach or shuttle van! Companies love the convenience of chartering a smaller vehicle for their staff. Whether it’s transporting your entire team to a conference attendees, or sending your them on a team-building retreat, we have smaller vehicle charter services to suit your needs.
