Launched in 2004, BusRates.com is owned and operated by the United Motorcoach Association. It was developed as a dual resource for the bus charter industry by providing free comprehensive and easy-to-use charter information for consumers and an economical venue for bus owners to promote their many services.
BusRates.com strives to be the most current, complete and categorized database of charter bus companies and group travel providers available online. BusRates.com is a resource designed for the travel professional, offering help on all aspects of chartering a bus, planning your itinerary, and contacting vendors directly. Not only is this a great tool for the experienced group leader, but it also provides those who have never chartered a bus or orchestrated group travel before with the resources and information needed to plan a large group trip. BusRates.com takes most of the relevant and important information available about chartering a bus and planning your group travel and presents it in an organized, concise, easy-to-reference summary.
In April of 2010, BusRates.com entered into a strategic partnership with NTA, the National Tour Association, to expand its directory to include NTA-member hotels, attractions, events, and restaurants. This expansion was designed to help the group leader easily orchestrate their group travel needs from beginning to end.
