Travelling in groups can be a lot of fun, especially when you’re going on a trip with friends and family. However, travelling in convoy with multiple cars is expensive and less enjoyable with the group split up. Why not hire a minibus for your next group trip? Minibus vacations come with many advantages!
There Are Better Group Dynamics
Taking trips with a very small group only really works when you’re with close friends or an incredibly close family. Otherwise, tension could start brewing, especially after being on the road for a long time. However, too many people in the vehicle can get overwhelming, and you could even feel like you’ve gone back in time, and you’re going on a school trip with classmates. The noise levels would be immense, and it would be impossible to enjoy the drive. That’s why minibus hire is best – they’re big enough for small groups, and fit ten to twelve people comfortably at most, making them the perfectly-sized vehicle for group travels.
There’s Less Waiting Involved
When you go with a large tour group, you could be with up to twenty people or more. Organising that many people is a lot of work, and it wastes a lot of time, especially if it’s a short trip that falls over a weekend. It’ll feel like you’re spending more time waiting for people to return to the bus, get on and off the bus, use the bathroom, get meals, or see attractions. If you hire a minibus for yourself and your smaller group of friends and family, you can control what you see, where you go, and how many stops you make.
There Are Better Views For Everyone
Minibuses are much smaller than regular tour buses, which typically seat up to three people in rows on each side. That means that, with a large tour bus, if you wanted to see the views or the sights as you drove past, you’d have to stretch or look past people’s heads to see them. In a minibus, there’s more space to go round for everyone to be comfortable, so you won’t miss anything you drive past, making it a better experience for everyone.
There’s More Flexibility
Although keeping some kind of itinerary and time frame is a good idea, travelling on a tour bus is not flexible at all. You don’t get to veer off course for an afternoon because there’s something you want to see on the way that you didn’t know about before. You can’t choose where to go which means that you might miss out on seeing a lot of cool places without even knowing about it. If you hire a minibus, you have the freedom to make these decisions yourself, with the rest of your group in agreement.
Going on a vacation with a group of friends and family can be great fun, but more so when you rent a minibus. With minibus hire, you can make all the decisions together, see and do what you want to, skip the touristy spots and make your own adventure.
