If you are organising a group trip, you should plan your transport ahead. This is due to the fact that if you are travelling a far distance, not many people will be willing to drive and therefore the majority will vote for alternative transport such as a minibus or coach.

You will be able to hire a minibus or coach for a day trip or a weekend stay with a designated driver. There are many companies which will offer this as a service but before you rush into anything, which vehicle will you require, a minibus or a coach?

What is the difference between a minibus and coach hire?

The differences between a minibus and a coach usually lie in their sizes and use. To start with, a minibus can transport a lot fewer people to and from your chosen destination than a coach can. However, this may vary depending on the type of coach you chose. This is because many coaches offer reclining seats and luggage space and therefore take this into consideration when seating people on coaches. Also, a coach may include a restroom. Whereas a minibus is simple – minimal space and a small luggage area behind the back two seats.

You may be able to add add-ons to your journey on both a minibus and coach such as Wi-Fi, USB ports and a TV.

Minibus hire

Usually, there are 3 types of minibuses you can hire – standard, executive and luxury. Each comes with their own features and upgrades. It will depend on what you want out of your journey to which minibus you would choose.

Coach hire

Similar to a minibus, coaches have 3 types – standard, executive and luxury.
