It could be that you are looking for airport transfers, school transport, going away on a family holiday, business trip or you need to take a big group on a tour somewhere for the day. There are many reasons why one could need to hire a minibus.

Here are a few things to think about before you go for a minibus Rental

  • The Bus size – Most minibuses fall in the range of 8 – seater to 18 – seater. You do not want to end up with a minibus to large or even to small. Make sure that you know the exact number of people you will be transporting so that you can choose a size that is just perfect.
  • Rental Periods – Most car rental companies have a minimum and maximum rental period and that can play a role in the charges for the minibus that you will be hiring. Finding out about the rental periods and the charges involved will help you choose a time frame that is good enough for the purpose of the hire and your budget. Exceeding any of these periods means extra charges.
  • There are car rental companies that don’t allow you to go beyond given areas or you have a certain amount of mileages that can only be used. Just double check these things with the car rental company beforehand.
  • The storage space available on the mini bus and air conditioners are some of the features you can consider when looking to hire a minibus.
  • Also important to check is the condition of the minibus so that so that you do not end up being charged for damages that did not happen while you had the minibus in your care.
  • Examine the bus before hiring it and if possible go for a test drive if you will be the one driving just to be sure of the condition of the minibus before leaving with it.
