5 Best Charter Bus Companies in Dubai

Whether it’s a party, a family trip, or a vehicle for a big entourage, we think chartering a bus is the way to go. 

Why? Well, buses are spacious, relatively safer behind a professional driver, and very comfortable for long trips.

So when we’re planning big trips or events that need transporting a number of people, we always look to different companies that offer this service in the city.

To find out which ones are the best, we went and asked around to give you Dubai’s best charter bus companies.

How much does it cost to charter a bus in Dubai?

The cost of chartering a bus in Dubai depends on the size and model of the bus you need, the number needed to transport the passengers efficiently, and the destination and the length of the trip.

To help you get started, we have made a table of the range of rates of chartering a bus depending on the number of passengers it can seat.


How We Picked Dubai’s Best Charter Bus Companies

Before we get right into our list of the best charter bus companies in Dubai, here are the factors we considered for our entries on this list:

Bus Fleet –  First and foremost, we wanted to consider the range of buses available for chartering, because each client must have a specific bus as a solution to their needs.
Service Quality – We also considered the punctuality and how accommodating the staff is from the start to the end of the charter. We also included, in this criteria, the quality of driving.
Coverage – It’s also important to us to consider how far are these buses allowed to go. Since Dubai is connected to many other big cities, and people can cross countries by land, a chartered bus that can do both would be amazing.
Extra Features – Lastly, buses aren’t your typical vehicles. Its spacious design allows for added benefits that can make trips cozier and/or entertaining.

Coverage★★★★☆ (4/5)
Extra Features★★★★☆ (4/5)

Providing dependable bus charter services with its fleet of the latest luxury buses and its professional service that continuously presents a “can-do” attitude, Dubai Bus Charter specializes in convention and meeting transportation for groups large and small.

Its fleet is made up of coaches that can seat 14 to 50 people at once. Some of its fleet are buses from Volvo and Mercedes, so the trips with this company are always comfy and exciting.

It is also great that all vehicles are inspected every month by certified mechanics, trained by the manufacturers of its motor coaches.

When it comes to service quality, we love that its drivers receive extensive in-house training, refresher courses, and safety workshops.

They are also subjected to the company’s stringent pre-employment screening, ongoing random drug and alcohol testing programs, and annual medical examinations, so they are all perfectly fit to drive us around.

Its coverage is also a strong point, with its fleet able to provide long-distance multi-state trips. However, as of the moment, Dubai Bus Charter is unable to provide cross-country trips by land.

When it comes to extra features, it doesn’t offer much outside of practicality. Besides 24/7 customer service and expert itinerary planning, its fleet itself does not offer a lot outside of the usual offerings.


  • Well-maintained bus fleet
  • 24/7 customer service
  • Drivers are professionally trained and checked monthly


  • No cross-country trips
  • No special extra features added to the fleet

Coverage★★★★☆ (4/5)
Extra Features★★★★☆ (4/5)

Specializing in a range of services, from corporate events and school trips to family excursions and more, Royal Rider Bus Rental Dubai has built a long history of excellence and is a trusted name in the industry.

Its fleet is made up of buses and coaches with modern amenities that ensure your comfort throughout the journey. 

However, its fleet only consists of one kind of bus and coach, so it does not provide flexible solutions for clients besides the group size.

This means that we are often constrained to which vehicle fits the number of people on our trip, and the fleet is not able to address other needs that we may have.

Despite, that the condition of the vehicles are all in excellent condition. The company has its fleet maintained to the highest standards to guarantee our safety.

When it comes to service quality, we love how the drivers are experienced in navigating the bustling streets of the city, which is perfect for when we have friends visiting.

However, its staff does not have special professional training that would show us the company went to great lengths to equip us with a highly professional bus driver.

Its coverage is also limited to major cities in the country only, making this company in this aspect quite limited compared to our other entries.

It does not have a lot of extra features, but we do love that it has an expertly guided tour service for both Dubai and Abu Dhabi City, making it a great option for tourists.


  • Well-maintained fleet
  • Experienced bus drivers
  • Offers guided tours for Dubai and Abu Dhabi


  • Coverage is limited to major UAE cities
  • Buses are all the same model

Dubai Bus Rentals has a fleet that consists of buses, coasters, and coaches, but sadly only limited to six types that are a mix of Toyotas and Mercedes models.

We were disappointed by the limited kinds of buses, but it was made up by the fact that all of its fleet looks and feels brand new. On top of that, all of its models are within the high-end range, ensuring that we always get around in style.

When it comes to its service quality, the drivers we had were all professional and drove through the city of Dubai excellently. 

Other than that, we appreciated its drivers’ expertise on what to do in the city, but there was not a lot of special aspect to its service.

Its strongest point is probably its coverage, which goes hand in hand with its extra features because Dubai Bus Rentals also offers and customizes Dubai desert safari tours.

It is not something we would expect from this service but we were surprised to find out how comfortable yet exciting the experience was.

Speaking of extra features, we also love that it has a niche with its tours such as the Dubai City tours, and its outdoor adventure experiences.


  • Excellently maintained bus fleet
  • Professional and experienced service
  • Buses offer tours of the desert and the city


  • Limited variety in its fleet
  • Nothing special in its service

Equipped with brand-new buses and coaches, Swift Transport can provide diverse solutions to every client’s transportation needs.

We love how its fleet has different types of buses such as luxury 50-seaters and school buses for field trips. While we love that it is all brand-new, we are still not sure about the quality of its maintenance practices.

We do love that its staff, especially the drivers, are regularly trained according to the rules set by the regulations made by the UAE authorities, so rest assured that you are always in safe hands with its drivers.

On top of that, we appreciate how punctual the service is, and the drivers always keep a transparent demeanor when it comes to the travel time to our destination. We also love how it is really good with optimum routing and time budgeting.

However, its services are severely limited to the Dubai metro only. Out of all of our entries, this one has the most restricted coverage, sadly.

When it comes to extra features, we do enjoy that its 50-seater buses have premium reclining seats, quick chill AC, and high-quality sound systems with DVD players on multiple screens.

Some options also have electric connections to support laptops and mobile phones,  and Wi-Fi can also be enabled upon request.


  • Has luxury buses and school buses in its fleet
  • Regularly trained staff according to UAE regulations
  • Punctual and honest service
  • Buses have great amenities


  • Coverage is only limited within Dubai metro

Extra Features★★★★★ (5/5)

A leading provider of bus rental services in the country, Asia Star has a strong presence that has been in the industry for 17 years now. With a wide array of services offered at affordable rates, we completely understand why this is such a favorite.

It has a wide range of buses in its fleet, from luxury buses and coaches to minibusses and minivans. This company is able to be flexible in its solutions for its clients.

We love how no matter how big or small our group is, this company has the perfect vehicle for the occasion.

On top of that, the vehicles are meticulously maintained by skilled drivers, ensuring cleanliness and comfort at all times.

However, we wish that kind of dedication also extended into its drivers’ certifications and training. While we have no doubts its drivers are capable and experienced, giving them opportunities to regularly have their skills sharpened would have been impressive.

Its coverage involves pickups and dropoffs at airports in all major UAE cities and maintains flexibility in group travels.

It does not offer the widest coverage, but we appreciate Asia Star’s willingness to accommodate requests when it comes to destinations.

Despite that, we love that it offers city tours of all major cities in the country, and its party bus is decked out in plush seating, LED lighting, a mini-bar, and high-quality sound systems.


  • Wide range of buses including party buses
  • Offers city tours
  • Flexible in its coverage
  • Competent and experienced drivers


  • Drivers lack regular training
  • Pickups and dropoffs are only limited to major cities
