If you only have about three or four people travelling together, using your own car is probably the most convenient option. When you are going out with a larger group, this is not always the best option, because you will all be travelling in separate vehicles. If this is the case, and you want to enjoy the journey together than hiring a minibus is the way to travel. So, if your group consists of 6 to 16 people, you can hire a minibus and get your own personal driver for the day as well.
Going with a big group of people is always more fun, but actually being able to travel with each other in the same vehicle, is even better. You can share your experience together, chat, listen to music or even watch a movie on TV. Whatever you choose to do on your journey it will be one to remember, knowing that all your travel arrangements have been taken care of without the stress.
You will save money hiring the one minibus, than having to fuel more than one car. When going separately you can run the risk of losing someone along the way, adding to the stress and making your day out miserable. Hiring a minibus, and being altogether can avoid all this upset so you can have something to remember.
People are using minibuses for all sorts of things these days; they are not only available for day trips and holiday destinations. You can hire a minibus to get you to work, a conference or even a business meeting. Pooling together to pay for a minibus can be a lot cheaper than using your own transport.
Always do your research before hiring a minibus, especially when it comes to drivers. They must have a bus driver’s licence, so a person who drives a car everyday will be driving illegally. Plus, the drivers are scrutinised for their safety, customer relations, knowledge and experience of their driving and CRB checked. So, letting the company provide the driver with the minibus hire, is definitely the best option.
If you do own a bus driver’s licence, there are places where you can rent buses out for your own personal use. Why would you want to do this if you are going out for some fun? They can be a lot more expensive that hiring a minibus with its own driver, because the charges will be based on distances and how long you actually want to hire the vehicle for.
When travelling to a holiday destination, make sure that the minibus has facilities to store your luggage. If you are planning a camping trip, some companies have trailers that can be fixed to the back of the vehicles, which are ideal for these situations. Companies that provide a minibus service have thought of everything these days, but make sure you do check out their reputation and credentials before hiring.
