Partybuses are mainly used to organize stag and hen do parties, weddings, birthdays, proms, company events and other special occasions. These vehicles also serve as a means of transport used during night round trips, most often including stops in pubs, casinos, music clubs and other entertainment destinations of the city.
A partybus is mainly used during short, one-day events, as travelling longer distances would make the journey uncomfortable without typical seating arrangement.
Most of the partybuses are rental vehicles offering their services to organized groups, e.g. stag and hen do groups. That is why they are more often chosen than competitive limousines.
