The Benefits of Hiring a Minibus for Your Airport Transfers

Published 11th Mar 2022

Jetting off overseas is one of the greatest pleasures in life almost all of us want to experience.

Dream holidays with warm sands and blue seas can be planned months in advanced. One of the very first steps to take when sorting out your transport is to get to and from the airport easily and on time.

Whilst it’s possible to drive there yourself, book a taxi, or even catch the bus or train, many people find that hiring a minibus for airport transfer is the best option.

We’ve put together a list of reasons why hiring a minibus is the best option for your airport travel.

1. Travel together as a group

To kick off our list is one of the main reasons you would hire a minibus in the first place, travelling together as a group. At SMC Coach Hire, we can find you a minibus that can cater for groups of up to 16 people, making sure your family or group can travel to the airport in one vehicle.

For most, taking two vehicles can be highly inconvenient, particularly as it prevents you from arriving at the airport at the same time. Travelling together in a single minibus can be much more fun too, with everyone getting into the holiday spirit together.

2. Leave the stress at home

Hiring a minibus for your airport transfer is less stressful than most other options. When you drive to the airport yourself, you not only need to make sure you get there on time, but you need to find somewhere to park your car and make sure you have the right amount of fuel.

Hassle free and straightforward – our team will organise your quote and travel requirements so you can sit back and relax whilst you’re taken directly to the airport terminal from your chosen pick up spot.



3. You’ll never get lost

SMC Coach Hire operates all around the UK and will find operators that are experienced drivers who have been transporting people to the airport for years in your area - so you won’t need to worry about getting lost on your way to the airport. if you choose to drive to the airport and you’re not totally sure how to get there, you risk losing your way, getting there late, and potentially even missing your flight.

4. More money in your pocket

In many cases, hiring a minibus can prove less expensive than other modes of transport. Taxis can be costly, especially if you’re travelling in a large group and need to hire more than one. Similarly, if you choose to travel by train, you need to consider how much several tickets will cost you in total.

You might think that car travel will be cheaper, however, don’t underestimate the cost of parking your vehicle in one of the airport’s designated car parks. Prices can be steep, particularly if you’ll be leaving it there for several weeks. You’ll also need to consider the cost of the fuel needed to get you to the airport. It’s often much more cost-effective to hire a minibus and split the cost between your group.

5. Your luggage has more space

Choosing airport minibus transfers in Doncaster, Rotherham or Barnsley means you’ll have more space for your luggage. At Wyatt’s, our vehicles have an abundance of space for all your suitcases and bags.

All your belongings can be easily accommodated, with many of our minibuses having extra-large ‘super-boots’ for this purpose. We can easily transport items like pushchairs, prams, and wheelchairs too, making sure everyone’s needs can be catered to.
