When requesting a minibus quotation it is important to state your luggage requirements as most minibuses only have a small boot section at the rear of the vehicle. Minibuses do not have underneath luggage bins. In the event, you exceed storage capacity you may need to request an enclosed trailer which will hook up at the rear of the vehicle. If a trailer is not available you may be able to request a larger minibus and utilise the spare seats as an area to store bags. Storing bags on spare seats must be done safely and not stacked above the headrest height. Luggage must not block the walkway as this may prevent access in the event of an emergency exit.
