From A to B in Style: A Guide to Luxury Group Transport


Are you hosting a corporate event and wanting to provide your attendees with a little something extra from start to finish?

Studies show that four out of five people will skip an event if they find attendance inconvenient. For example, if transportation proves difficult. Of course, ridesharing is an option but who needs all that admin?

Group transportation services are the cherry on the top when it comes to giving your guests the royal treatment.

Here’s what you need to know about arranging group transport services for your next corporate event.

Why Choose Group Transport?

Apart from higher attendance, providing group transport for your event has several other advantages. It’s a luxurious experience that comes with several other perks. These are:


When you hire group transport, you’re assured of your guests’ safety. Experienced, qualified drivers are at the helm of every vehicle to ensure everyone arrives safe and sound.

There are no worries about drinking and driving, so your guests can relax, let their hair down, and enjoy themselves as you’d like them to.


Group transport drivers arrive on time, every time. They know their way around town, so there’s no fear of delegates and guests arriving late after losing their way.

Transporting people en masse means most of your guests arrive at the same time too. This helps with timing for your event and prevents stragglers walking in during the proceedings.

Builds Camaraderie

When your guests travel in swish limousines or a luxury bus, the party atmosphere starts the moment they hop on board.

The comfortable atmosphere on these vehicles provides a great atmosphere for casual conversation and networking from the outset. By the time they arrive, the ice is well and truly broken.

Consistency and Morale

Hiring premium transport for your employees shows you care about their welfare. It also shows consistency in your treatment of staff and customers.

These good vibes are conducive to more productive and successful corporate events.

Wall-to-Wall Excellence

When you arrange door-to-door group transportation, it shines an extremely favorable light on your business.

Firstly, it shows consideration for the needs of your customers and clients. When you’ve provided them with a ride, they needn’t spend hours looking for parking, or worry about the weather messing up their outfits on the way to the door.

Customers are more likely to put their faith in a business that goes the extra mile for them.

Secondly, since there are fewer vehicles involved, group transport’s an eco-friendly option. This shows that your company’s committed to the environment too.

Group Transport Options

Every event’s unique with regard to attendees, theme, and location. So, it’s a good thing you’ve got a few options when it comes to choosing your transport.

These are some of the choices available:

Charter Bus Services

Bus hire services are best for large groups embarking on short trips. It’s best to arrange a safe central departure point, such as your office building, and transport your employees from there.

These buses are comfortable, air-conditioned, and spacious, seating up to 56 passengers.

Luxury Coaches

If you want to transport a large group of clients or employees in the best possible style, a luxury coach or mini-coach is a good choice. These premium vehicles feature sound systems, climate control, limo-style wraparound seating, and a minibar.

They seat between 16 and 40 passengers and are the ultimate plush group party bus.

Limousine Service

Limousines are a more luxurious alternative to luxury coaches and charter bus services if you have VIP clients that need transportation. Limo hire is a sure-fire way to impress prospective clients and sophisticated guests.

You can choose from a wide range of configurations when it comes to limos. These vehicles seat between two and ten people and feature all the bells and whistles.

Most limousines come standard with the following features:

  • Music systems
  • Dual conditioner
  • Climate control
  • Full wet bar with a light show
  • TVs
  • Tinted windows
  • Privacy window

Of course, a professional, tuxedoed driver’s part of the package too.

Luxury Vans

Luxury vans are a great option if you’re flying guests into town for your event. They’re the ideal mode of transport for picking people up from the airport, with enough room for ten passengers and all their luggage.

These vehicles offer high-end air-conditioned comfort for all your guests and help create a great impression from their first interaction with your company.

Choosing Your Perfect Vehicles

It’s important to plan your vehicle hire requirements before you approach a hire company, so you’re assured of a custom service that suits your event.

You can book group transport services for multi-location stops, one-way trips, or round trips if needed. You can transport your guests from the airport to their hotel, to our event and back and then back to the airport afterward.

If you really want to impress them, you can even arrange a limo tour of local sights after they arrive, or arrange for a vehicle to remain on call for them as needed.

Lastly, compare prices and services before making your decision. In general pricing’s based on the following aspects:

  • The model, size, and features of the vehicle
  • The day of the week you want to hire it
  • The time of day you need it for
  • A per hour fee for the use of the vehicle

Peruse the transport hire company’s website in depth before booking to see which of their vehicles best suits your needs and the impression you’d like to create. If possible, it’s best to inspect the vehicles in person too.
