Press Release: BusRates.com Announces Site Upgrades


ALEXANDRIA, VA   (May 1, 2018)  Busrates just put group travel planning in the fast lane with speed and site upgrades to the website and a top-to-bottom redesign that produces mobile-friendly and straightforward search results.

The site upgrades for this online platform will allow it to continue to be the leader in matching group travel planners with motorcoach and limousine companies that can fulfill their travel needs. And it’s still the number one way for group travel professionals to book directly and save up to 25 percent.

Searching by zip code, state, or city, users will receive lightning-fast results presented in a new format that is straightforward, attractive, and easy to understand. Each result includes high-quality photos of a provider’s fleet, a list of amenities, a company description, relevant reviews, and contact information allowing users to easily compare companies. The improvements will benefit travel planning professionals as well as individuals who have never planned a bus or limousine trip.

“We’re so happy to be able to offer this new and improved version of BusRates to both our subscribing companies and our users” stated Steven Valley, BusRates General Manager.
