You Can Rent a Celebrity Tour Bus For Your Socially Distanced Summer Road Trip
Though summer vacation plans for most people this year involve a little more TV watching and hanging at home and less traveling, you can still satisfy your need for adventure while maintaining social distancing guidelines. Nashville-based tour bus company Hemphill Brothers is offering its fleet of luxury motorhomes up for rental, and with a truly star-studded celebrity client list including Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Cher, Drake, Dolly Parton, Adele, and Rihanna (just to name a few from the dizzyingly long list!), you can ride in style just like your favorite music legends have.
Since musicians aren’t taking their acts on the road this summer, the Hemphill Brothers team is offering their custom luxury buses to those looking to buckle up for a pandemic-friendly road trip—so while you may not get to see Lady Gaga on tour this summer, you might just be able to rest your head on the same bed where she once rested hers.
In a statement to Travel + Leisure, co-owner Trent Hemphill said, “Each time we convert a bus, we push ourselves to come up with a better way to do things. Each build is extremely custom, and no two are the same. When you mix years of bus building knowledge and experienced carpenters with new technology and updated materials, we all win in the end.”
His partner and brother, Joey Hemphill, added, “We want our buses to have the latest and greatest. We strive to keep up with technology and equip our coaches with the luxuries and ease of home.”
Offering up their full fleet of 106 luxury coaches, you can bring your entire quarantine pod on the road—the Star Coaches come with six bunks plus a queen bed located in the rear, with Joey telling T+L, “Our coaches are truly someone’s home away from home. We outfit the conversions with upscale materials to make it feel that way. We want them to feel safe and have all the comforts of their own home. Many times, we transport families, so configuring the bus to meet their needs is very important to us.”
You can either get behind the wheel yourself and drive to your heart’s content or work with the company on a customized travel plan, which includes a professional DOT qualified driver, who will take your crew to any destination in the continental U.S. (along with Canada once the borders reopen). Pricing varies based on the coach, itinerary, and length of trip, so reach out to Hemphill Brothers for more info. It certainly sounds like a cool way to party like a rockstar without worry this summer.
