What do I need to Provide for my driver?

Drivers food and drinks are covered, however, for overnight trips you do need to reserve lodging for your driver. Drivers require 8 hours of sleep for every 10 hours they drive, and booking everyone at the same hotel will makes pick-ups and drop-offs more streamlined. A small tip: If you let the hotel know you are traveling on a charter bus - they may offer you group discounts or free lodging for drivers. Also note: Driver gratuity is not including in the price, but highly recommended to tip your driver at the end of your trip.
