Rent Other Commercial Vehicles

Avis provides trucks and commercial vehicle hire services across Australia. We offer utes, vans, and 12 seater bus rental under one roof, so you're sure to find exactly what you need. Along with van hire, bus hire, and minibus rental, we also deal with standard passenger vehicles and luxury European cars.


How much does it cost to hire a 12 seater minibus in Australia?

Transporting a large family or extended group can be very expensive. Instead of booking multiple taxi services or dealing with unreliable public transport, Avis has the solution. We provide 12 seater van rental at a great price point, with our service designed to make your life easier while reducing your day-to-day expenses. The exact cost of 12 seater minibus hire depends on the type of vehicle and rental period. We specialise in Toyota Commuter hire, and we offer great bus rental discounts for long-term contracts.

What license do you need to drive a 12 seater minibus in Australia?

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 are you supposed to do before you return a rental minibus?

When you return your rental minibus 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 minibus to us in a clean state, ready for the next customer to drive.

Can I remove seats in my rental minibus?

Generally the removal of seats in minibuses is not permitted. Please check with the location directly for further information.

Can a minibus use a bus lane?

In Australia, dedicated bus lanes are available on some urban highways and busy city roads. These lanes are mostly designed to handle public transportation, although they also allow private coaches and bicycles in some situations. Unfortunately, 12 seater minibuses and similar vehicles are not allowed to travel in bus lanes. Depending on the jurisdiction, illegal use of a bus lane may incur driving demerit points and a fine.

Can Avis provide a driver along with the minibus?

Unfortunately, Avis does not provide a driver for minibus rentals. You don't have to worry, however, as our 12 seater minibus rental service is open to everyone. While large buses and trucks often have special licensing requirements, our minibus hire package is available with a standard car licence.

Can I return my rental minibus to a different location?

Avis allows one way rentals between select locations. Enter your details in the search widget to see available options.
