Which minibus hire should I choose?
You've decided to hire a minibus for your travels, but you're not sure which model to choose? Don't worry, we've put together a guide to help you choose your minibus!
Automatic or manual transmission: which minibus hire should you choose?
Choosing your minibus hire can be a complicated process: there are so many models to choose from that you can quickly get lost. It is important that you choose a gearbox that suits your needs and preferences. But don't panic, whether you prefer an automatic or manual gearbox, WeVan has what you need. We offer all kinds of vehicles: minibuses with automatic gearboxes - the Mercedes Class V for example, but also models with manual gearboxes, such as the Toyota Proace Verso.
WeVan tip: hiring an automatic minibus is often recommended: it's easier to use than a manual gearbox and will give you a smoother ride without worrying about gear changes.

Another thing to consider when choosing your minibus hire is the vehicle's seating configuration. Depending on the number of passengers and luggage, you won't necessarily need the same vehicle. The 7 seat minivans are more compact and easier to maneuver, especially if you're driving around town. However, if you need to hire a minibus for long journeys, a 9 seat minibus will give you extra comfort. To make your choice easier, we provide you with spacious and ergonomic models from 7 seat to 9 seats.
WeVan info: whether you choose to rent a 7 seat, 8 seat or 9 seat minibus, you won't need a special driving license. In fact, you can drive a 9 seat minibus with a "B" driving license.

Finally, the decision on your minibus hire will depend on how you intend to use it. Modular and versatile, a Nissan minibus hire will give you plenty of space thanks to its folding seats, ideal for large families with lots of luggage.
As a new leader in the minibus market, Toyota minibus rental offers innovative features, particularly in terms of fuel consumption. With a fuel efficiency around 4.9 L/100 km, the Toyota Proace Verso minibus is currently one of the least polluting vehicles in this category.
For business trips, you can opt for a more upmarket vehicle. To transport high status people, professionals generally opt for the Mercedes Class V minibus hire: both elegant and spacious. With its fine finish and numerous options, the Mercedes Class V minibus offers optimum comfort.
WeVan tip: with a more casual atmosphere than the Class V, the Mercedes Vito Luxe minibus can be a good alternative to reconcile comfort and budget, whether you travel for leisure or for business.
