17 Seater Minibus Hire


Minibus hire is one of the most cost-effective means for getting around on short journeys, say for conferences and events, day trips or sporting events, tours and sightseeing, corporate work trips, excursions, and so on.  For a group of people traveling to the same destination, the minibus becomes a much cheaper alternative than if the individual members of the group travelled separately by taxi or rental cars.  For tours and sightseeing excursions, the latest models offer such features as reclining seats and wide panoramic windows that enable you to take in the views in full comfort whatever the weather.

The Different Types of 17 Seater Minibus Hire

Minibuses come in various levels of comfort and you can choose from standard, luxury, corporate and executive.  In case you are 25 and above and have a driver’s license of D1 class for Europe, most minibus hire companies will allow you to hire a self-drive vehicle, otherwise you may need to hire the minibus with a driver for an additional cost.  Some companies in fact may insist that you use one of their drivers for certain minibus sizes.  In case of special needs, such as for the disabled or for a group traveling with children some minibuses will be available which contain special seats or disabled access doors, but you may have to book well in advance.
