Sometimes, a car rental (even a spacious one) simply isn’t enough to get everyone where they need to go. Whether it’s a one-off family holiday or an ongoing work project, a bus hire can be the ideal solution for moving a large group of people.

Thrifty is well stocked with a range of buses suitable for all occasions. An 8-seater van hire is ideal for families looking for extra space on their road trips, and small groups such as sports teams and workplaces. A 12-seater van hire is perfect for that entire team plus a few supporters, and the larger mid-sized buses and coaches can fit large groups of 20, 25, and 40.

With so many options, it can be tough to make a decision on which bus is best suited for the task at hand. If you’re at all unsure about which van, mini-bus, or coach to hire, don’t hesitate to get in touch to talk to our helpful staff.

We offer bus rental locations all over Australia, so you’ll never need to go far to pick up your bus and get everyone on the road.
