Cotswolds Minibus Hire

Cotswolds minibus hire for day trips and travel-related services

When we’re not guiding tours of the Cotswolds, we’re available for Cotswolds minibus hire for private day trips and transfers. Our availability for private hire is usually better in the winter.

Our four smart, executive-class 17-seater Mercedes minibuses are ideal for larger groups of 6 or more people, where a standard car or 8-seater minivan would be too small.

What we do:

  • Minibus with driver hire for day trips and excursions
  • Airport and port transfers
  • Corporate transport

We take great pride in our spacious, well maintained vehicles, which all have comfortable reclining seats, air conditioning and heating. We have lots of luggage space too!

Go Cotswolds is a registered public service vehicle (PSV) operator with a standard national operator’s license issued by the Office of the Transport Commissioner. Please beware of rogue operators acting without a licence!

What we don’t do:

As we are primarily a guided tour company, there are some jobs that we don’t consider, sorry. These include:

  • Self-drive minibus hire – try Evesham Self-Drive, or Robinson Goss Car & Van Hire instead.
  • Short-hop taxi-style journeys of less than 1 hours’ drive – try a local taxi company instead
  • Wedding transport, hen/stag parties, football matches
  • Late nights/early mornings

For short journeys, it’s usually more cost-effective to use a local taxi service, even if you need several cars to accommodate your group.

Please note, we are based in Stratford-upon-Avon, so we are unlikely to be a cost-effective option for transport from London or the southern Cotswolds.

Private hire vs. private tours

Our private minibus hire is offered on a transport-only basis. Though some of our drivers are also tour guides, not all of them are. If you would prefer a private guided tour, then please see our Private Tour options.

More than 16 people?

If you have a very large group (16+ people) and need transportation only, then we recommend you try a local coach company, such as:

If you would like to arrange a private guided tour for more than 16 people, let us know. Subject to availability, we can provide step-on guides with transport provided by one of our local coach partners.
