How much does it cost to hire a bus in Australia?

The price of bus hire in Australia varies widely based on a range of factors. The size of the bus has a huge influence on the overall cost, as does the rental period. For example, 12 seater minibus hire is likely to be more affordable than 21 seater bus hire for the same time period. Your choice of pick-up and drop-off locations can also influence the final cost, especially when you hire a one-way rental service.

How much does it cost to hire a minibus in Australia?

The cost of hiring a minivan depends on the size of the vehicle and the length of the rental period. For example, minibus 12 seater rental will typically be more affordable than large bus rental. Avis offers minivan and bus hire across the country, from large capital cities to small country towns and regional airports. Vehicles and prices can vary from location to location, and licence requirements may also vary between states. Please check the relevant rules in your jurisdiction at the time of booking.

Can you hire a party bus at Avis?

Unfortunately, Avis does not hire party buses. If you're going to a wedding or doing a pub crawl with mates, specialised companies do provide party hire services with or without drivers.

Do I need an Australian driving licence to rent a bus?

The Driver must (i) hold a full, current and valid driving licence (not being a learners licence or provisional licence), (ii) have an International Driving Permit (IDP) or official translation (if a licence is not in Roman alphabet), (iii) have held their licence for minimum 12 consecutive months immediately prior to signing the Rental Agreement.

An International Driving Permit is not a stand-alone document and this must be carried with your valid domestic driving licence for it to be valid.

Digital drivers licences are only accepted in the issuing state. If you're travelling interstate you must present a physical (plastic) drivers licence.

What is the age requirement to rent a bus in Australia?

The minimum age to drive a vehicle with Avis is 21 years of age. All drivers must hold a current, full and valid driver's licence, that has been valid for a minimum of 12 consecutive months. A young driver surcharge may apply.

What are you supposed to do before you return a rental bus?

When you return your rental car to Avis, you must do so with a full tank of fuel. We also ask that you remove all your personal belongings from the vehicle. Finally, please return the car to us in a clean state, ready for the next customer to drive.
