Useful information on renting a minibus or van in New Zealand

Our suppliers offer 8 and 12 seater mini buses on the comparison list often. However, they are on a request basis only, especially during holidays and peak seasons.  This is when you'll need to use the contact details below. Please note that no additional license will be required for anything up to (and including) a 12 seater bus.  Suppliers like to talk to their customers directly about commercial vehicles, so we can't actually quote them on the phone or via email. Contact the supplier directly for more information.

Benefits of booking a minibus and van hire

Are you planning to travel with a large group? Instead of renting separate vehicles, it is advisable to book a minibus or van hire. You can enjoy travelling together instead of convoy driving which oftentimes causes delays because you need to wait for the other car to keep up. Many people are also surprised that renting a minibus or van is cheaper than hiring several cars. Another benefit of hiring a bigger vehicle is the comfort of having more space. You got more room for your legs to stretch and can sleep even better. Best of all, you can bond with your friends and family more.
