Hiring a 6 seat minibus

There are generally two choices available with 6 seat minibus hire, self-drive or with driver, each choice has its own benefits. Self-drive will mean hiring the minibus to be driven yourself. 6 seat minibus hire can be done on a standard car driving licence and is beneficial as hire time periods are more flexible. A 6 seater handles much the same as a regular car is an excellent option for anyone not confident with a larger vehicle. Self-drive gives you the benefit of being able to travel where you want without being restricted by the hours a driver is available. Hiring self-drive can also be a cheaper option as there are no driver’s wages to cover.

Choosing the option of 6 seat minibus hire with a driver can be beneficial to groups travelling one way, such as airport transfers and nights out. It is also a good option for anyone that is unfamiliar with driving this type of vehicle; a private hire driver will be experienced and have a good knowledge of the local area. This will ensure you get to your required destination safe and on time.
Although choosing to hire with a driver may cost more than self-drive, there is no need to take out any insurance or put down a deposit. Most self-drive rental companies will require a deposit or collision damage waiver from the customer; a deposit can often cost £250-£500 and is forfeited should any damage occur to the vehicle whilst in your possession, private hire means responsibility for your safety lies with the company.

Self-drive 6 seat minibus hire does give more options in extras that can be chosen, one popular choice is overseas travel which is offered by many of the national companies.
