12 Seater Minibus Hire


Hiring a minibus is a great way to be able to transport a large amount of people from one location to another.  They are frequently used for weddings, to transport guests from the church to a reception, or for corporate affairs, for example.  Minibus hire is also available abroad through United Kingdom based companies, which is particularly relevant for those who have hired a self-catering villa with a group of people and need transportation from the airport to their villa.

The Different Types of 12 Seater Minibus Hire

Generally, 12 seater minibus hire is either including a driver, meaning it can carry 11 passengers; or self-drive.  In the case of self-drive, there are likely to be some requirements placed on the person that will be driving the 12 seater minibus hire, including a minimum age, a clean licence and having held their driver’s licence for a number of year.  It is also possible that you may require a specific licence allowing you to drive such a vehicle.

The Estimated Cost of 12 Seater Minibus Hire

The cost of 12 seater minibus hire will vary greatly depending on your exact requirements.  If you are looking for self-drive 12 seater minibus hire, the price will vary according to your location and the length of time you require your 12 seater minibus hire agreement for.  Many companies will encourage longer term hire, by offering reduced rates for weekly or weekend hire.  It is important to check that the price you are quoted for 12 seater minibus hire does not later have hidden costs for things such as VAT, insurance and perhaps even road side assistance.

If you are looking for 12 seater minibus hire with driver, you are likely to only have to pay for the actual trip or trips you are undertaking, and you will generally be charged in a similar way to taxis – a call out charge and an additional charge per mile.  This is, however, often much cheaper than taxis, particularly if there is a large group, as you would not be able to fit 11 people in a taxi, meaning you would need multiple taxis for the same journey.

So, whether you are looking to transport your members of staff for the annual company corporate affair, or whether you want to go on a country wide road trip with a group of friends, you should have no problems finding a company that can offer you 12 seater minibus hire that meets all your needs and requirements.
