Philadelphia Area Shopping Trip Transportation

Shopping in Philadelphia has never been better than with a charter bus.

David Thomas Trailways is proud to offer our customers one of the most fun Philadelphia charter bus ideas out there, customized shopping trips for you and your friends! Whether you have 15 or 200 our fleet offers different bus types including minibus rentals, charter bus rentals, coach bus charters, even school bus rentals, to accommodate any budget and group size.

Booking a charter bus can be tricky so here are a few tips that will help you get the best deal and make sure you make the right choice-
  • Make sure to shop local- for a bus that is! The Philadelphia bus rental market can be tricky when shopping online. Many websites that look like they are local aren’t, but rather are brokers trying to raise your prices. Ask anyone you are getting a “free quote” from if they own and operate their own buses. This will keep your prices down and make sure you get the local support you need.
  • Philadelphia shopping trips are great but think big! We have over 40 years of experience providing group trips to fantastic shopping centers and destinations around the country. From trips that include traveling to Lancaster, the Philadelphia Premium Outlets, or even heading into New York City and the shopping bonanza that is available there, we have you covered. No matter if you prefer small town gift shops and craft stores or big city designer clothing and shoe department stores, we can help plan the perfect day, weekend, or a full week out.
  • Amenities matter: Modern coaches can offer passengers incredible levels of comfort and safety. As you shop make sure that you look for the amenities you want and need to make your travel better. From onboard WiFi to stay connect and check your bank balances, to video screens to keep the kids occupied and power outlets to keep those devices charged up, our fleet offers passengers exactly what they want and need.

When you think about a charter bus rental in Philadelphia, think about the company that has been serving customers safely and comfortably for over 40 years, think of David Thomas Trailways, one of the premier charter bus companies in the United States. Our group travel specialists are standing by to help you plan your next shopping trip right here in the city of brotherly love or beyond!
