How renting a bus with a driver in Europe works?

Using our minibus and bus rental in Europe is fairly straight forward. If you want to learn more, read our Guide to Bus Rental and Charter Bus Companies in Europe.

First step is to request a quote by sending us email or filling the form here. You do not have to have a full detailed itinerary at this stage. However, we need at least the following information, so we can give you approximate cost of the bus hire:

Your travelling dates or number of days of bus rental.
Where you would like to start your tour.
Where would you like to end your tour.
Tentative day to day plan.
The size of your group or size of the rental bus requested.

If you need an inspiration to create your itinerary, have a look at some of our suggested tours. These tours can be customised any way you need to design the European tour that you dream about. If you are still unsure of any of this, contact us as we are happy to help. Being a tour specialist, we use our extensive experience to suggest you the most effective route and what places are not to be missed along the way. We also know how many days you will need to cover all your sights stress free.

Once we receive the sufficient information about your plans, we will prepare a price quotation for you. We provide quotes with price all inclusive unless otherwise requested. We include fuel cost, tolls, drivers meals and accommodation in the estimate. You do not have to worry about any of this and just enjoy your tour.

In the case you will accept our offer, we will start preparing for your arrival. We will give you continuous support in planning and fine-tuning your itinerary until the beginning of your tour. Some of the arrangements such as booking hotels for your group should be done before your arrival. Booking restaurants and sightseeing tickets can be done at a later stage.

Some of our clients come with thorough day to day planned itineraries but some choose to have more basic approach with just a general list of sights they want to see. Your coach captain/driver will support you in any case to make the most of your holiday. He will make sure that you did not miss on any interesting sights and you are on time for your prebooked sightseeing or restaurants.

On your arrival, one of our experienced English speaking coach captains/tour drivers will be waiting for you at the agreed place. It can be either at the airport arrival hall or any place of your choice. Most common pick up place is a local international airport. But we can also pick you up at any location of your choice. The driver will be holding a sign board with your name so you can easily find him. We will also provide you his contact before the tour, should you have any problems. The driver will be there to support you for the rest of your tour. You can just relax and make the most of your time and have a memorable European holiday. You can also count on our 24/7 support from our back office staff whilst on the tour.

For the rest of the tour, you have a great flexibility.  You can use your hired bus with a driver for all intercity transportation, en route sightseeing, city tours and day tours. Going shopping and going to restaurants is also included.

Unfortunately, all holidays have to come to an end. But by this time you will have a bag full of memories. We will be happy to welcome you back as one tour is never enough to experience the diversity of all countries in Europe.

Got a Question?


How many seater bus I should rent for my group?

We recommend our 8 seater touring passenger minivans for groups up to 6 persons. This is to ensure sufficient travel and luggage space. Groups of 7 plus persons can choose one of our  ultimate touring minibuses, Mercedes Sprinter.

Mercedes Sprinters are recommended for groups up to 7 – 17 persons large. In specific cases, they can accommodate groups up to 19 persons but space for passengers would be limited. A trailer would also be necessary to accommodate the luggage.

We recommend one of our Mercedes Tourismo midsize coaches, if the passenger and luggage space is the priority. These can accommodate up to 50 passengers with their luggage comfortably.

How much minibus and bus rental in Europe costs?

The cost of the hire of bus with a driver is influenced by many variables. It depends on the season of the year, where the tour starts/ends, empty run kilometres and road tolls. In some European cities, entry fees for buses are applicable. Therefore, we calculate the cost for each tour individually to give you the most accurate price. Get in touch with us to get a quote.

How long in advance I should book a bus?

For tours starting in peak season, we recommend booking the bus at least 3 – 4 months in advance to ensure availability. The busiest months are April to July. In less busy period, booking 1 month in advance is usually fine.

Can I hire a bus for a self drive?

We do not provide bus hire for self drive. To operate a vehicle with more than 9 seats in Europe is fairly complicated. You would need EU transport operator licence. Drivers are required to have a bus D licence, tachograph card and professional drivers training valid in EU.

Moreover, driving large passenger vehicles in Europe is difficult. It takes an experienced, professional driver to navigate through all the traffic rules, parking and access restrictions which are different to almost each city. When you use our minibus and bus rental in Europe, you will not have to worry about any of this and just enjoy your tour.
