Why is my billing amount different than my quote?
Your price quote is an estimation based on the times supplied to us. Maestro Bus Lines bills you for actual time usage based in 30 minute increments after you've reached any minimum usage requirements. If you use under the estimated time, your bill will be less. If you use over the estimated time, your bill will be more. Another factor that can change the billing amount is any contractually obligated charges described in the contract or extra amenities you've requested we provide.
Can I see the vehicle before making a reservation?
No matter which Maestro Bus Lines service you choose, Maestro Bus Lines always recommends that you schedule a meet and greet to inspect your vehicle, and meet the company staff. This will help you make an educated decision, and that the bus and company you have chosen exceeds your standards upon arrival. Not all bus companies have the same level of service or quality of vehicles that we provide to you.
