Auckland, New Zealand (PressExposure) November 13, 2009 -- Minibus is just a fun to drive. To whom exactly minibus suits? A minibus is a 7 to 17 (though some may insist it is 9 to 16) passenger vehicle. Anything less voluminous is a car, and more is a coach. Therefore, if you are more than four persons then choosing minibus rental is the best. It is always nice to travel altogether in one than to travel in separate cars or taxis with multiple drivers. It is much more affordable than a full-size bus when a vehicle that large isn't necessarily needed. This makes a minibus a popular choice for schools, families, taxi services, charities and many other organizations which are of similar nature.
Minibuses are used for a variety of reasons.
Public transport comprises passenger transportation services which are available for use by the general public, as opposed to modes for private use such as automobiles or vehicles for hire role.
An Airport bus or airport shuttle bus or airport shuttle is a bus used to transport people to/from or within airports. These vehicles will usually be equipped with larger luggage space, and incorporate special branding.
Demand responsive transport or demand responsive transit is "an advanced, user-oriented form of public transport characterized by flexible routing and scheduling of small/medium vehicles operating in shared-ride mode between pick-up and drop-off locations according to passengers needs".
A taxicab, also taxi or cab, is a type of public transport for a single passenger, or small group of passengers, typically for a non-shared ride.
Para transit is an alternative mode of flexible passenger transportation that does not follow fixed routes or schedules. Typically vans or mini-buses are used to provide Para transit service, Individual owners may use reduced seating minibuses as cheap recreational vehicles.
If you are planning to hire a minibus, it requires no more effort that is required for the car hire. Before paying for your minibus rental, know how many people needs to seat and the model you would like. As prices vary by company and by date, for the best deals do a little research .Reservation in advance saves your both time and money. Waiting to the last minute or worse waiting till you are at the rental agency, will cost you more in the long run. It is always best to reserve the minibus at least a week in advance but the more notice you have the better deal you will find.
Minibus rental will need a valid driver's license and a credit card. The majority of rental car agencies will charge more if the driver is under 25 because they pose a higher risk or in case you are hiring their driver. However, some may rent to those as young as 21, just expect to pay more. It is a change of pace, allowing you to break from the ordinary and drive something different. They are easy to drive and very convenient.
