Tips for hiring a 7 or 9 seater minibus


Hiring a Van

The fun of a group trip is unmatched. Whether you are with family or friends, a 7 or 9-seater van will allow you to travel together in one vehicle, offering you unrivaled comfort.

Moreover, thanks to the folding seats, renting a minibus is the best choice in case of bulky or numerous luggage: often the greatest limitation of 5-seater cars is represented by the size of the trunk.

A driving B licence is required by law to drive a minibus up to 9 seats. More and more customers choose a minibus for their trips. The advantages of this choice are numerous: you save on the cost of motorway taxes, on fuel and on parking and to rent a van you almost always need a single credit card.

If in UK with the B license it is possible to drive a vehicle with up to 9 seats, in other countries the legislation may be different. In the United States, for example, minibuses are allowed to rent up to 12 seats, while in Canada only up to 7.
