Special events, be it a milestone birthday, a hen or stag do, or just a fabulous night out, often involve a lot of planning and, let’s be honest, a hefty budget. One significant part of the budget often goes towards transportation, especially if you’re looking to elevate the experience with something as luxurious and fun as a party bus. But what if we told you there’s a savvy way to save on costs without compromising on the party vibes? Enter the Party Bus Outbound, Minibus Return strategy. Here’s how it works:

The Allure of the Party Bus

There’s no denying that a party bus is the epitome of luxury and entertainment on wheels. With top-of-the-range sound systems, LED lights, plush seating, and often a stocked bar, a party bus can turn the journey itself into an event to remember. It’s ideal for setting the mood, getting everyone excited, and making the most of your special occasion.

Why Consider a Minibus for the Return?

As incredible as party buses are, the reality is that the luxuries come with a price tag. By the time the main event is over, everyone is usually too tired (or too, shall we say, merry) to fully appreciate the onboard amenities a party bus offers.

A minibus for the return journey is a fantastic cost-effective alternative. These vehicles offer comfortable seating and sufficient space without the frills, making them ideal for the trip back. Plus, minibuses typically have lower per-hour costs compared to party buses, helping you save a chunk of your budget.

The Savings: Crunching the Numbers

Let’s assume a party bus costs around £150 per hour and a minibus costs around £80 per hour. For a four-hour total rental (two hours each way):

  • Party bus for the entire event: £600
  • Party bus outbound, minibus return: £150 x 2 (outbound) + £80 x 2 (return) = £460

That’s a potential saving of £140, or approximately 23% less than using a party bus for the entire event!

Booking Made Easy with Anything for Hire

When you’re already caught up with planning an event, the last thing you need is the hassle of booking different modes of transportation from various providers. Anything for Hire’s party bus and minibus hire service makes it easy to book both for your event, offering a streamlined service that saves you both time and money.


Your special event deserves all the glamour and excitement you can muster, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be financially savvy about it. By opting for a party bus for the outbound journey and a minibus for the return, you can strike the perfect balance between luxury and economy. After all, who doesn’t love a great party that also respects the wallet? Happy planning!
