Q: Can we bring our own alcohol?
A: WA Police claim that alcohol consumption on a charter bus is comes under the so called ‘street drinking’ laws. Police claim they will stop buses and fine drivers and passengers for street drinking. They have also previously issued defect notices on buses where empty alcohol containers have been found in rubbish bins. ‘Save the Bees’ Perth Party Bus thus has a policy of not letting alcohol containers such as cans and bottles on the bus.
Q: Are there dress requirements?
A: Best you wear nightclub type attire to avoid hassles at the nightclubs in Northbridge, Subiaco or at the Casino. You never know, you might get lucky and finish up at unexpected venues. ‘Save the Bees’ Perth Party Bus, itself has no dress rules. Fancy dress might be and idea. Let ‘Save the Bees’ Perth Party Bus so the driver can match you.
Q: Can I change my date?
A: Yes. Send us an email. This is usually not a drama.
Q: Can I cancel.
A: Yes. But please let us know by email. There is no cancellation fee.
Q: Do I have to confirm?
A: Please do. The easiest way to confirm is to reply to the Confirmation Email. It is not a great worry as we will send a “Please Reconfirm” email a few days before. The reason for the reconfirmation is that some people cancel and forget to tell us. However, we don’t cancel even if you forget to reconfirm by email. If we still don’t get your reconfirm email, we will call you by mobile on the day.
Q: What should I bring?
A: Your happy friends. ID is useful for entry to nightclubs.
Q: How do I book?
Q: Can I book online?
A: Yes. Our website has a quote form on the website page. When you get your quote, you can reply to the quote with the final details and we will book it into the system. Your booking will be secure when you have received your ‘Confirmation Email’. We do request that you reconfirm about three days before, however, we will contact you to ensure that everything is going ahead as planned.
Q: How do I pay?
A: With money. Bank transfer or cheque a fortnight in advance or cash on the night when the bus arrives. Check with Perth Party Bus for other arrangements.
Q: Do I have to book the pubs?
A: Sometimes. A few pubs in Vincent require bookings to comply with the ‘Vincent Accord’. Other venues may like a booking to ensure they have the staff available. A few venues state that they don’t accept bus groups, but they tend to relax their own rules whenever their business is down. Just like their dress rules, they enforce when busy and not when quiet. Occasionally we have to adjust the tour if a venue is unexpectedly full. Occasionally a bus is turned away if the crowd it too rowdy. Try to keep group peaceful at pub entrances.
Q: Can we smoke?
A: No. Buses are a smoke-free area under WA regulations, and it’s about time you gave up anyway. Perth Party Bus recommends that today would be a good day to give up smoking.
Q: Is there a deposit?
A: No. I hate the paperwork. We have very few problems with our customers and it takes up too much office time. We don’t accept the practice of confiscating deposits.
Q: What places can we go for a bucks night?
A: Perth Party Bus experience is that ‘The Doll House” will be the most memorable experience for a bucks night. Ask them to put a special performance on for the groom. Unforgettable.
Q: What places are good for a hens night?
A: Pole dancing lessons at a pole dancing studio even at a male strip club. It can be very useful to know how to keep your man’s attention.

A: Yes. Please email us to arrange. We have done this many times.
Q: I have been given a cheaper quote, will you match it?
A: No chance. We’re good.

A: Yes. But try give us some notice. Just reply to your confirmation email saying you may be down on numbers.
Q: Do you cater for bucks parties?
A: We love bucks parties. Can you out party us?
