Minibus hire: Advice and Tips


If you are planning your minibus hire, it is really important that you ensure everything in advance. Every minibus hire company has slightly different conditions and rules, so it is crucial that you are aware of all the items when you book. Read some of our tips to help you on your way.

1.       Plan

Before you even start getting low minibus hire prices, determine how much you need to move around by minibus and how much it may weigh. It is important that you get this right, as there is a strong possibility of you overpaying the rental costs for a minibus that is way too big for your needs or end up with something that is far too small.

Minibus comes in varying sizes from compact 8-seater minibuses to as big as 16-seater minibuses. If you are moving heavy items a minibus with a tailgate lift may well suit you with loading and unloading.

2.       Compare

While comparing prices of minibus hire services, make sure you know what to include and what to exclude. Also, insurance can vary dramatically; so check what you are covered for with each company and never assume that a cheap rental service will include all the elements you require.

Compare meticulously and always go for the ones that provide unlimited mileage deals. Above all, ensure that you read complete terms and conditions before finalizing your booking.

3.       Check the documents

Check the documents wherever possible. Beware of any extras that you are being sold and agree to only those you might actually need.

4.       Check the vehicle

Check the vehicle inside and outside for any damage before you drive away. Make sure you know what to do if the minibus breaks down or you meet an accident; finding an emergency number to call should be the last thing to worry about.

5.       Other important details

Check your credit card statement to make sure no additional charges have been incurred for your minibus hire. If you find discrepancies, take this up with your minibus rental company.

Final Thoughts

Minibus hire is essential when you are going out on a trip with your friends or family, especially when you are new to a place. Following the above tips will help you make your minibus hire experience smoother and hassle-free.
