We’ve now hit a stride where we’ve grown accustomed to Thursday and Friday night televised college football games. We’re back into the habit of watching “Game Day” Saturday mornings with our coffee, so it’s not too far out to start thinking bowl games, especially as we head into conference play.
Getting a group together to rent a bus for the game is a great breakaway. Here are the plays that any ultimate fan and group travel planner needs to get into their playbook.
Start talking with your group early and often about how you want to drive into the face-off. Larger groups should opt for a deluxe motor coach or charter bus; smaller ones who want flash may consider a limo bus. Everyone should check out our reference guide to help make the difference. It breaks down all the buses and options, so you can find the right fit for your team.
BusRates.com helps you make the call on where your group will be staying for the bowl game with our group hotel directory search. All of the hotels in the BusRates.com directory are members of the National Tour Association, whose members specialize in North American tourism business and are committed to quality travel experiences. That way your bowl travel team will have peace of mind before and after the big game.
Games are won and lost with special teams. Consider how you will pull the event together with social media, creating an app to share trip and game details or a hashtag for tweets and images. Plan a lineup of movies to show for the drive, such as “Friday Night Lights,” “Rudy,” “We are Marshall” or “Any Given Sunday.” Extra points would also be a consideration for spirit decorations and décor.
