THE CARDINAL RULE: DON’T BUY ON PRICE ALONE!
All motorcoach companies are not alike. When you’re deciding on which company to use, make sure you are comparing apples to apples. If the price received from one operator is significantly different than others in the area, it might be because that company is saving money by poor or inadequate preventive maintenance procedures. Don’t risk heartache to save a couple of bucks! Remember, as a general rule, you get what you pay for.
