The Advantages of Hiring a Minibus

If you’re planning a trip, whether it’s a stag do, a school outing, or just a night out in a neighbouring town with several like-minded friends, then it’s worth considering minibus hire as a means of getting around. Minibuses, of the sort offered by the Allied fleet, are a sensible option for getting large groups of people to and from a given location at a given time.

So why hire a minibus? There are several reasons.

Economics

Sure, a minibus might cost a little more up-front than a taxi might. But they’re also capable of transporting far larger groups of people. A single vehicle can help to spread the cost of fuel, the labour of driving, and one-off payments like the congestion charge, which effects those visiting London. Of course, these savings accumulate the more people come along for the trip.

Convenience

If you’re the allocated driver, then enjoying yourself while on a trip might be difficult. It’s tricky to relax, after all, if you know that there’s a long trip ahead of you. Plus, you’ll have to worry about things like your alcohol intake. Moreover, the driver you hire may be able to provide insider knowledge on just what’s available in a given location, and allow you to cover multiple locations in the same day.

Safety

The best minibus drivers are able to handle the vehicle effectively and safely, which means that you won’t have the difficulty of having to drive an unfamiliar vehicle. Moreover, minibuses are huge, and resistant to collisions.

Freedom

If you have your own transportation to call upon, then you’ll be able to make your own schedule. You won’t need to be at a certain place at a certain time in order to get home, and you won’t need to stick close to a public-transport hub. What’s more, if the public transport becomes inoperable because of planned maintenance or industrial action, your trip will still be able to go ahead. What’s more, you’ll be able to easily get around parts of the world that don’t have much in the way of public transport to begin with!

Consolidation

Since everyone’s in the same boat (or, rather, bus), there’s no transport-related reason for your party to split up. That means you’ll be able to do a quick head-count every time you board a board the bus (or disembark) and ensure that everyone’s still with you.
