One main thing to think about when hiring a bus in Melbourne is to confirm how many people will be travelling on the bus. Do you require a mini bus which seats 8 or a medium bus which can seat up to 14 or perhaps you are taking along the whole family and require one of our larger buses which can hold 30. Make sure you have the required license – (A 12 seater bus is the maximum sized bus that you are permitted to drive on a standard driver’s licence, over 12 seater requires a Heavy Vehicle Drivers Licence, from “light rigid”) – and always remember to pack a map on top of your GPS (Available separately) just in case it breaks / loses power / is unfamiliar with new roads or just doesn’t seem to be able to say anything other than “re-rerouting”.
Also if you are hiring a bus in Melbourne be sure that you are aware of the road laws. A good site to visit would be vicroads.vic.gov.au.
Once you have organised and booked your bus there is nothing more to worry about except maybe, red or white wine?
