Four hours is easy. When I got Picasso, I was on vacation in New York and when I brought hom home, he was great the whole four hours.

Took my bettas home once from where i was living for university, the ride took about 12 hours and they were fine (well, there was an issue, but that's because my parents told me to keep them their tank, which is divided, instead of cupping them...obviously the divider is going to fall/shift during the ride...during one of our stops I found my bettas decided to visit each other, but they were both ok).

Yikes! lol. Yeah cupping, bagging, etc is better then leaving them in the tank.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

So most fish here get put into bags from their little tanks for rides home. Are those bags safe for a trip & should I maybe take a small bucket to sit it in just in case + a towel?

Good :D
I'd feel so horrible if the bag burst & one died :(

That can help lower stress levels actually. My dad transports his fish from store to house like this. Black bucket with a cover and sometimes bubblewrape to keep from bouncing about or foam.

The bubble wrap is a good idea. I would never have thought about that.

It takes an overly paranoid person to think of that xD and my family is full of them.
