    Comparison websites for minibus 16th Apr 19 at 6:14 AM
    My friends and I are planning to hire a minibus for our upcoming weekend road trip because none of us owns a car that can accommodate the eight of us and all of our baggage. When I told my sister about this, she told me about a website that compares prices from various minibus operators. I’ve looked through the website and it seems like a reliable company. But I’d like to hear your opinions first. Is it recommended to hire minibus on the Internet? If any of you has experience in doing so, please let me know.

    which country are you looking to rent in?
    have you tried the car rental comparison sites? - if you filter on people carriers you should find some 9 seaters.

    I've hired people carriers from local hire companies with no problem, just phone around & ask.
    Tall, dark & handsome. Well two out of three ain't bad.

    Most car hire is booked through the internet these days, either direct with the hire firm or through a comparison site. A van or people carrier with three rows of seats can usually be obtained from most hire firms (assuming you mean self drive hire). Which website are you looking at and in which country is it required?

    We are going to London City. I already check some site but I'm torn if they are really reliable.

    Probably easier and cheaper to make use of Uber rather than hiring a minibus and driver.

    Or make use of the more than adequate tube,bus and train network in London via an oyster card

    I've already check Uber and the largest passenger seat that they can provide is six seater and we're eight PLUS the baggage it wouldn't fit at all. (Especially we're all girls, it only means that we have ALOT of baggages )


    We also discuss if we just split in 2 teams and rent 2 cars but I think that it's more expensive?
