Dorset and Hampshire are both beautiful counties, with a prime location on the south coast of England. Both counties have award-winning beaches and some of the best places to visit. We offer mini coach hire for all group travel, which is the best way for you and your group to see and experience the south coast in it's full glory, you will get to pass through and see some of the best scenery available in the UK, like the New Forest, Swanage, Hengisbury Head, Durdle Door, Corfe Castle and a lot more.

Anyone who has done any travelling along the south coast, through the villages and countryside will tell you how really nice this area is. Using our cheap minibus hire for your group travel means the drivers are freed off to enjoy themselves as well and can simply relax and enjoy the journey as you travel through the lovely small towns and villages, the wide-open spaces and really just enjoy the fresh air as we pass by the sea and through the countryside.

The New Forest is a real joy to travel around and being high up in the mini coach gives you the best views and makes the whole journey into a great road trip, passing through beautiful landscape and scenery, seeing it change with such contrasts, it doesn’t matter if you are on a group travelling, or are on a company event, the beautiful open countryside, the free roaming ponies and deer, the whole group will simply be thrilled.

Dorset and Hampshire are lovely places to visit for a holiday as well, there is so much to do and see here. It's wise to use a private hire minibus for your group's travel needs, so that you have no worries about parking, no parking fees, no parking ticket worries, no worries about joining in and having a beer or wine, which means the whole group gets to enjoy the break.

Last Minute Bookings...

Has your coach hire or mini bus hire company let you down? We often get calls from frustrated customers who have been let down, they may have booked through an online booking agent (booking agents don't have any vehicles or drivers, they take bookings, then try to contract the work out at a cheaper price and keep the difference), because they often try to keep up to 40% of the fare quoted, offering the bus operator 60% of the fare, they often struggle to get the job covered and may let you down last minute, or worse, you end up with the cheapest and worst bus and driver as the whole of your fare hasn't gone towards your transport, or, they pay the bus operator the correct fare and you pay an additional 40% on top of the fare for them answering the phone and passing the job on to a bus operator. Real bus companies can also have vehicle or driver problems, which means they cannot cover the journeys. Whatever the reason, please contact us as soon as possible and we will do our best to help you get a bus and driver and save the day.

No Admin Fees...

We offer the best bus fare options and charge NO admin fees to make your minibus bookings or to make changes to your existing bookings. We always allow a few extra minutes either way on every mini bus booking for your group travel needs, so if you finish a little early or late, we have it covered. We run the best, most affordable minibus hire, with the best customer service, with helpful, polite and considerate drivers, because we've found that satisfied customers come back and book again and again, so we always go all out to please our customers.

You will have a PSV qualified professional bus driver for all your minibus transportation and shuttle transportation journeys. The PSV qualified bus driver will provide you with a mobile number, this will help you to liaise with the driver on the day of your travel. Which means, if you are running a little early or late, just contact the driver by text or phone call and they will do their best to fall in-line with you.

We Are Here To Help With Your Group Transport Needs...

Let us know your group travel dates and times, your pick up and destination addresses, we will then work out your travel times, we have many mini coach hire options, so once we've gone through your transport requirements, we can then work together to create your group's best travel itinerary options.

If you have any questions, or you want to make changes to an existing quotation or booking, we will be only too pleased to help, so please ask away.

Minibus Facts

  • How your minibus and coach hire fare is worked out is very easy, you are paying an hourly rate for the bus, an hourly rate for the driver and the cost of the fuel used for your journey.
  • A taxi operator licence is controlled by the local councils and the vehicles are licensed up to a maximum of 8 passengers.
  • A bus operator license is controlled by The Traffic Commissioner, these are all vehicles that are 9 seats or more, commonly called minibuses or mini buses, mini coaches, midi coaches, buses, double deckers and coaches.
  • DRIVEU specialises in providing group transportation, we will always advise on the best way to travel, even if it means us not doing the job.
  • We only provide minibus with driver services, if you travel in a rented self drive minibus, you will need to make sure that the driver has the correct driving licence, plus, no one is allowed to receive payments for the journey, this requires an operator licence and any payments for the journey maybe breaking the law and could invalidate the vehicle insurance.
  • Passengers and luggage can be difficult to combine in a standard mini bus, as they are mainly designed as large people carriers, so the amount of luggage will dictate the number of passengers you can get onboard, talk to us and we will advise you on this.
  • Our minibus hire with driver fares are easy to understand, we are more than happy to explain all your journey options and fare price options available, one way, return, multiple journey, full day's hire... please ask.
