When should you book a mini coach?

If you’re planning a long trip for a group of 28 people or less, and you require extra comforts like WiFi, luggage space, or AV equipment, a mini coach rental is the one for you!

The mini coach features ample luggage room and all the comforts of its larger counterpart (minus the washroom!). A small and mighty vehicle, this ride is perfect for airport pickups, away-games, and city tours.

 When should you book a minibus?

The minibus is a sensible choice for a group of 20 people travelling short distances, and for transportation to events that doesn’t require any bells and whistles.

The minibus is perfect for shuttling your guests to and from an event or even in-between venues on a celebratory night. Party-goers will be thankful they weren’t the designated driver – especially after enjoying a few drinks!

When should you book a school bus?

If you’re moving a large group for short(ish) distances, then one or several school buses is the ideal option.

A childhood favourite, the classic yellow school bus is perfectly suited to get your friends, team, or student group to your end destination. We recommend this budget-friendly option for groups who love adventure, sing-alongs, and won’t shy away from a (slightly) bumpy ride!

When should you book a coach bus?

In it for the long haul? For a big group that is traveling for several hours, the coach bus will provide an ideal environment to take a nap, or prepare for the event you’re heading to.

Lofty coach buses provide extra legroom, luggage space and on-board bathrooms. We highly recommend this option for groups of 30 to 55 riders planning a red-eye, or have special requests like WiFi or audio-visual equipment.
