How to find a cheap minibus rent?


Book in advance

This is the golden rule for finding the best budget car rentals. During the period from March to August, demand is higher and prices can rise. By booking 3 weeks to 2 months in advance, you will find more vehicles available, and at better prices.


Some tips

  • For a short trip, choose car rental deals with limited mileage. They are generally cheaper than those with unlimited mileage. 
  • Compare the deals available in the city and at the airport. There may be a price difference due to airport taxes.. 
  • You will find the cheapest deals in the Mini category, and cars that consume the least fuel in the Economy category.

Large family on a trip: an adventure is experienced all together in a spacious and comfortable minibus.

Holidays with friends: take up to 9 people by minibus, great atmosphere guaranteed!

Events, weddings: simple and practical, organising a minibus will be your best ally.

Associations and sports teams: there is room for everyone plus all the equipment in a minibus.

Can we rent a minibus by month?

In some rental companies, it is possible to rent a minibus for a month or more. You should be aware that the payment can be requested all at once when booking the vehicle. Ask about the number of kilometres allowed, if there is a limit per day or on the total duration of the hire.

From what age can you rent a minibus?

Who has never dreamed of driving a minibus along roads worldwide surrounded by family or friends? Some rental companies accept drivers from the age of 18, but others will ask for at least 2 years or even 5 years on a licence! Find out more about hire conditions and possible young drivers insurance costs.

Good to know: in Europe, if you have a standard driving licence, you can carry up to 8 passengers. In other countries, in the United States for example, your B licence (with an international licence) may allow you to rent a 15-seater vehicle, but you will have to be over 25 years old.

How many years do you need on your licence to be able to rent a minibus?

The majority of hire companies require a licence to have been held for at least 2 years in order to rent a minibus. This is the case with Sixt, for example. Rentacar, however, request 5 years on a licence! These criteria may vary depending on the size of the minibus, its capacity in number of passengers, and also depending on the country in which you want to rent. So remember to inform the agency of your choice to avoid any unpleasant surprises when picking up of the vehicle.

What documents should be presented to rent a minibus?

To rent a minibus, you will need:

  • Your identity card or passport
  • Your driving licence
  • A credit card in your name
  • Proof of address (depending on the agency)
  • A telephone number (depending on the agency)

Visa, Mastercard and American Express credit cards are the most commonly accepted by hire companies. Before finalising your reservation and to avoid any unpleasant surprises at when picking up the vehicle, check that your card will be accepted by the car rental company.

Do you have to take out insurance to rent a minibus?

“Third-party insurance” and “personal injury” coverage are included in minibus hire contracts in the United States and European countries. Other optional insurance will be offered by the rental company to better cover you in the event of incidents (repairs on the vehicle, insurance in case of theft, etc.). These additional insurance policies also reduce the excess you may have to pay in the event of an accident.

Be aware that some payment cards (VISA Premier for example) include insurance for your car rental. Check beforehand to avoid accumulating insurance.
