    review rating 5  Our driver Ray was fantastic, courteous, on time and his driving was impeccable. The bus was immaculate and the company was terrific to deal with, very professional. We will use them again and I highly recommend to others.

    review rating 5  We used Sydney Mini Bus Hire for a recent trip we took as a group to Sydney. They catered for all our needs. Really user friendly in terms of the service, easy to book through the website. No hesitations in using them again in the future!

    review rating 5  Took a 21 seater to snows . Seemed a bit priced but worked out to be the same as others because after 200km others incur a extra fee per km . Would highly recommend . Its always nicer with a family owned business . Even took me to the station afterwards .

    review rating 5  This is by far the best hiring company EVER. I used to hire from places like thrifty, Avis. none of the service offered is closed to this company. this guy, which I forgot his name (I'm really sorry) is no fuss-no stress person. just be responsible to your vehicle, everything else is so easy to deal with. no scam, no hidden fee. I hired Toyota Hiace Commuter to snowy mountain, I'm from liverpool went down and picked up in Caringbah, returned it after 48hrs, I only need to top up full tank of fuel twice. the bus is so healthy. they're gonna need more bus from now. the best customer service. well done.

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.

Excursion hire

Sydney Airport Pickup and Dropoff

If you are flying into Sydney Airport, in most cases we can arrange an airport pick-up and drop-off, which is an ideal option for many of our interstate and international customers.

A uniformed Sydney Minibus Hire representative will be waiting for you and your group at the arrivals area at the airport with a name card so you can easily identify them. They will have your vehicle ready for you, along with a luggage trailer if requested, making for an easy and hassle-free experience.

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.

Toll roads

We include free travel on all Australian toll roads with your hire so you won’t need to worry about arranging a day pass or about any unexpected bills arriving. Simply drive wherever you need to go and we’ll take care of the rest (not applicable for wholesale/tour companies or long term hires).

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.

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.

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.
