Advantages of minibus rentals
So let’s look at the advantages of minibus rentals today. The price per person cost drops in direct relationship to the number of people sharing the travel. If you have 10 people wanting to travel to a particular destination, you could rent 5 cars so the five couples could each travel separately. That requires five cars and the required fuel for the journey times five. Or you could hire a 10-seat minibus and pay for only one vehicle’s fuel divided by five couples, or by 10 persons if some are singles.
Price and Driving
The price was the first advantage of renting a minibus and driving is the second selling feature. Do five people in your group of travelers all know the way to the destination? Would some have to follow others with a chance of getting lost? Who really wants to drive anyways when it’s nicer to have just one minibus rental driver? And that one driver has the bonus of 9 backseat drivers to ensure he or she gets to the right place at the correct time. Okay, so that is advantageous for the nine and the minibus driver gets to grumble and pretend to be paying attention to the nine annoying passengers.
I put a clue to the final minibus rental advantage in the paragraph above. That extra benefit is that everyone gets to the location at the same time. Nobody has to wait around because they arrived first and none have to suffer the abuse if they were the ones that made everyone else late.
Those are some of the advantages of minibus rentals. The group pricing makes the transportation and fuel costs cheaper for each. Only one minibus driver is needed at a time but some may have to share the driving duties if a longer distance is involved. All will arrive together as a group instead of straggling in one or two at a time. There are doubtlessly more excellent advantages to renting a minibus like having the possibility of hiring a professional driver or getting a local guide to bring along.
There is also the environmental plus of burning fossil fuels in only one vehicle. But I’m sure you’ve got the picture and I’m sure you’re likely to look into minivan rentals when the situation warrants it.
