Sixt Rent A Car Minibus Fleet

Our minibus hire fleet is perfect for those times when your own vehicle isn?t quite big enough. The next time you plan a weekend break, rather than squeezing in amongst the kids, the bags and the picnic boxes, give yourself some extra space to enjoy the journey. You?ll even have room to invite those extra friends who you?ve always planned on going away with. If you?re used to travelling in convoy with your family friends, save on your fuel consumption by sharing a vehicle; the more the merrier.

For the ?back-to-university? run, our minibuses are a great solution for those teenagers who aren?t known to pack lightly. You can hire for just one day for really low prices! Our brand new vehicles will provide you with all the room you need, and save wear and tear on your own car.

Type of license

If you?re hiring a COMN or CNMN minibus then you will require a category D1 driving license. This category was automatically granted if you passed your test before January 1st 1997. If you were born after this date, you must apply for the D1 category. The age restriction for applications is 21 or over.

Category D1 allows you to drive vehicles with 17 seats, a maximum length of 8 metres and a trailer up to 750kg. According to the DVLA, drivers who received their licences prior to 1 January 1997 are able to drive minibuses provided their entitlement to drive minibuses (category D1) remains in force.

It is also important to note that non-EU citizens can only drive vehicles which have up to 9 seats (IVAR, SVAR and FVMR).

Travelling outside of the UK

Travel outside of the UK is permitted for IVAR/MR, SVAR/MR and FVMR minibuses. Please note that this may require additional costs. It is not possible to cross the UK border in a COMN or CNMN minibus.
