Are you travelling with numerous members of your family, in a large party or maybe you are a group of Golfers? If so, you may want to consider Hiring a Mini Bus instead of a car.
Why? Because hiring a Mini Bus carries many advantages over hiring a normal sized car and you may well find it is more economical than taxis or hiring 2 cars. It´s also a little bit of fun driving something different to what you normally drive.
A couple of years ago we had 6 members of our family come over. The logistics of them either hiring 2 cars, or 2 taxis and then trying to go anywhere together as family just wasn´t going to work. So, we personally hired a minibus for the 9 of us, and honestly, it was the best thing we did for 10 days. We were all able to travel together, only had 1 vehicle to worry about parking and especially if the weather is a little off, then we could all still get out and about comfortably.
Arranging a Minibus or People Carrier hire is just as easy as normal car hire. There are many vehicle types and models to choose from. By filling in all the relevant details in the car hire search box above, you will find that minibuses can generally accommodate between 7 to 9 passengers. More and more golfers are also choosing these kinds of vehicles for the space and comfort. Get a quick quote here.
If there are more than 4 of you travelling and you need to take a taxi, you may well need 2 taxis, as the majority do still only take 4 passengers, although there are some now that take more. Lets take Puerto Banus for example. A Taxi for 4 will cost between 83€ and 100€ depending on time of day, day of the week and luggage. Times this by 2 taxis and then a return journey, you are already looking up to 400€. Plus all the taxis rides you may take during your stay and the inconvenience of not having your own vehicle. Taxis also charge extra for pick ups at the airport, have a minimum charge and also charge for each piece of luggage over a certain size.
You may need two 5 seater cars plus all the add ons for each car, insurances, car seats, name drivers etc. The need to take 2 cars everywhere, always trying to follow each other and also double the parking charges for car parks. Hire a minivan or bus, you only have 1 vehicle to worry about and everyone travels together. Prices vary a lot on the cars, so you can do your own price comparison and get a quote for Malaga Car Hire here. The great thing whether you hire a car, minivan or bus is that you have your own transportation throughout your holiday.
Whether you are playing golf, spending time with the family or even if you are simply travelling around Spain, its nice to have that little extra comfort and space, especially when driving long distances. When deciding on exactly which minibus or people carrier to hire, be sure to consider all the space you need for all your luggage and in particular golf bags if you are travelling with them. The amount of space left for luggage will of course depend on the number of people who will be travelling in the vehicle.
The majority of people carriers and especially minibuses have little or no space in the back as they do not have a boot so to speak and therefore you need to plan accordingly and hire the appropriate size and type of vehicle for your needs.
One important thing to remember is that minibus hire is becoming increasingly popular which is no surprise considering the benefits it gives families and large groups. Due to this reason we highly recommend that you pre book your minibus hire as soon as you an. We normally book our car hire as soon as our flights are booked. Another reason to book in advance is because most of the car hire fleets do not hold a large number of them so they could run out. You also get the best price booking early.
