Can I hire a bus during COVID-19?

When it comes to travelling together as a group…can I hire a bus?

The answer is YES, yes you can.

There is no limit to the number of passengers you can have in a vehicle and passengers can sit in any seat. Passengers do not need to be from the same household to travel together.

It’s a great year for snow!

Are you planning a group trip to the snow this year?

Whether you’re headed to the NSW or the Victorian snowfields, you can hire a minibus in Sydney to take you there.

Sydney Minibus Hire has been providing mini buses and vans to take people from Sydney to the ski fields for over 30 years!


We are the premier minibus/minivan hire and bus charter specialists in Sydney. Servicing every area of Sydney from the CBD, to the Sutherland Shire, the Northern Beaches, Sydney’s West and beyond, we make transporting small and large groups around Sydney and surrounds easy.

Communication was excellent from start to finish. We dealt with Daniel who was friendly, helpful and professional. The bus itself was much nicer than expected, and very comfortable and clean. Pick up and drop off was seamless and easy. Highly recommend this company.

Can Highly recommend Sydney Mini Bus Hire. I have used other companies in the past but will definitely be returning. The Mini Bus went beautifully no issues great on fuel, comfortable and Staff were very helpful. The price quoted is what you pay with no hidden extras on return Plus we were given a complementary travel pack full of goodies. Thank You Daniel.

This was an easy experience. Smooth process and quality vehicle. We used a 12 seater self drive hire that included two kids seats. The options to reduce insurance excess and have unlimited km's gave peace of mind. Sydney Minibus hire made our long weekend away so much easier.

Self-Drive Minibus Hire

The self-drive hire option is the way to go if you are happy to do the driving yourself.

Simply collect your vehicle from our Caringbah office in Sydney, drive your group to and from your event/s, then return it at the end of your trip. Depending on the hire, we can also arrange an alternative pick-up and drop-off location if required.

We also offer an after-hours drop off and key return service if you need to return the vehicle after business hours.

You can drive our 8 and 12 seater mini buses or vans on a standard car drivers licence, however you require a Light Rigid (LR) licence to drive our 21 seat minibuses.

International customers can also drive our vehicles. If your driver licence is not in English, you will need to provide either a valid International Driver Licence or an official translation document. In Australia, you can drive an 8 or 12 seat minibus with your Australian or overseas car driver licence.

An Australian LR or higher licence is required to drive a 21 seat minibus. Overseas drivers must be licensed to drive this size vehicle in their home country.

Charter Service

Our charter service is a popular option for sporting teams, school groups, community groups, business and corporate travellers, wedding parties and birthdays, tours and events.

If you don’t want the hassle of driving and navigating around unfamiliar roads or don’t hold the required licence to opt for the self-drive option, we also provide a charter service where we’ll do the driving for you.

With the charter service option, we’ll take care of everything for you. We will provide a professional uniformed driver who is fully licensed and authorised to carry passengers for the duration of your booking.

All we need to know is the time, pick-up location, destination and number of passengers and we’ll take care of the rest.

We can provide a group transport solution to meet your needs, no matter how complex they are. If you need to make multiple stops, have different pick-up and drop-off locations, require a multi-day service or need a service for an extended journey, with our charter service we’ll take care of the details so you can relax and enjoy the ride.

We don’t charge for add-ons

Unlike some other providers, you’ll know exactly how much your hire will cost from the beginning when you choose Sydney Minibus Hire.
Our quotes are all inclusive and we’ll never charge you additional fees, surcharges or taxes. We even include all the extras other companies would charge you for at no extra charge.

Luggage trailers

If you are travelling in a large group and require extra space for luggage, simply let us know at the time of booking and we’ll provide a luggage trailer at no extra cost.

GPS navigation systems

If you will be driving on unfamiliar roads, we will be happy to provide you with a free GPS navigation system for the duration of your booking to make it a little easier for you.

Multiple drivers

You can nominate multiple drivers, provided all drivers are over 21 years of age and meet the licence requirements for that size vehicle, for no extra charge.

Baby or booster seats

All our minivans and buses are equipped with three child restraint anchor points (there are six anchor points in the 21 seater) so your little ones can travel in safety. Simply let us know the number and type of baby or booster seats you need and we will supply Australian Standards Approved seats at no extra cost. We will have them allocated and ready for you when you pick up your vehicle.

Emergency roadside assistance

While all our minibuses and vans are regularly serviced and maintained and in excellent mechanical condition, if you do require emergency assistance, we also include free 24-hour roadside assistance with NRMA with your hire for added peace of mind.

Daniel and Jennifer were a pleasure to deal with – very professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire again one of their 12-seaters should the need arise again in the future. Not only will I avail again of their services, I will also recommend them to my family and friends. Thanks again to you both.

Eric Flores

Was a very easy and seamless experience. The service was fantastic, the minibus was immaculate, modern and very clean. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to hire a larger people carrier.

George Nakata

I have used Sydney Minibus Hire twice and I appreciate the no stress or hassle. Even being over an hour from home with lots of places I could chose to hire from, I’d rather go with Sydney Minibus. Everyone is so nice to deal with and the buses have been great.

Marina Barrett

A giant THANK YOU to Ron, our fantastic courteous driver and Daniel and the team at Sydney Minibus Hire! Ron arrived before the set time, he knew where we were going, he got us to our destinations safely and on time, and knew alternative routes when there were unexpected road closures. He also planned our trip in a way that meant he was pulling up on the side of the street that we needed to get out on – no need to cross busy roads. The bus was clean and in great working order (and fitted with safety belts). Thank you for helping make our day a great success. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Sharon Marley

Amazing service! Friendly staff! The bus was modern, clean and well looked after! The customer care package with lollies and tissues, pad and pen was a really friendly touch. Good old fashioned service. Will definitely use Sydney Minibus Hire again.

Braddon Capita

Our customers enjoyed themselves and our Team leader said your driver Ron was great to work with. Thank you for providing exceptional customer service from the booking over the phone to the delivery. Keep up the great work.

5 stars in the following areas: Being a foreigner in Sydney, Australia, driving can be difficult. Tony attended to us pleasantly and timely. Superb service. Simple instruction and guideline was given to me and I liked it. Booking made via online was perfect and correct, no hassle during the day of pick up. All my requests were attended to correctly eg. 3 x children car seats were already in the 12 seater commuter and insurance coverage. Perfect. Good hospitality from Tony. The commuter was clean and no breakdown. Returning the car very quick, check on fuel, check the top of roof and around the car, return 3 x children car seats, and done. It was a fast one. Most importantly I manage to transport my family safely. Thank you Tony and Sydney Minibus Hire.

Definitely better service compared to renting from the multinational companies. Rented a 12 seater under the “Snow Package” for a recent trip to Perisher. Great value. The bus and trailer were in excellent condition, the manager, Daniel, was very professional and even dropped me at the train station when I returned the bus.
