Whether you’re going away with extended family, need a bit more room for the kids’ friends or heading out on a wild stag/hen weekend with the usual suspects, cheap minibus hire helps make the journey part of the fun.

Sometimes, size does matter – but size shouldn’t mean a compromise on quality. From 6-seater people carriers to 12-seater minibuses – and everything in between – TravelSupermarket can find a high-quality vehicle big enough for your party.

And just because you’re renting a bigger vehicle, that doesn’t mean you have to spend a small fortune on car hire. Hire a minibus in advance and you’re much more likely to find a better deal – use TravelSupermarket to compare what’s out there.

Find answers to your questions


What age do I need to be to hire a minibus?

Generally, you need to be at least 21 and have held a full driving licence for a year to hire a minibus. However, this differs between countries, and you usually need to be over 25 to rent a larger vehicle.

What do I need to hire a minibus?

You usually need your driving licence, proof of address – such as a utility bill – and a credit or debit card. Rentals companies may ask you to show your passport and provide a check code from the DVLA. If you are driving outside of the EU, you may need an International Driving Permit. Do make sure your address matches across all forms of ID.

Do I need to take excess insurance when hiring a minibus?

Excess insurance is not mandatory when hiring a minibus, but it’s worth considering. Without it, you are liable for the higher excess costs if you damage the minibus. Your rental company is likely to offer you excess insurance, but if you shop around, you could find it cheaper to purchase a policy from a third-party insurer.

Can I rent a minibus with a debit card?

Yes. It is possible to rent a minibus using a debit card, but most rental companies require a credit card as security – do check before you book. Whether you use debit or credit card, you need enough funds to cover the cost of the minibus rental and the security deposit.

Is it cheaper to rent a minibus at the airport or off site?

As most airport rental locations charge additional fees and taxes, it’s usually cheaper to pick up a minibus off site. However, if you compare online and in advance, you can usually nab a great deal wherever you hire from.

Can you rent a minibus and drop it off in another city?

Yes, many major rental companies offer one-way minibus rental. But keep in mind that additional charges come into play when picking up and returning your minibus to different rental locations.

Can you rent a minibus on the same day?

Absolutely, but rental companies usually have fewer minibuses in their fleet, so checking ahead is wise. Just search for same-day minibus rental online or head to a rental location with your documents.

Can I hire a minibus at 21 years of age?

Yes, you can find rental providers that hire minibuses to 21-year-olds. But in most cases, you can expect to pay a ‘young driver surcharge’ if you’re under 25.
