About DRIVEU Minibus Hire

Looking for DRIVEU Minibus Hire ?

DRIVEU Minibus Hire was started back in Devon in around 2012 as a side line to an existing business.

After moving to the Bournemouth area in 2014, the minibus business quickly became our main business and has gone on from strength to strength.

We currently provide regular contracted services for local authorities, local businesses and private hire to local residents and visitors to the local area.

Why Choose DRIVEU

We live and work locally, and use our own vehicles and local drivers with great local knowledge.

We work hard to keep our costs down, but without ever compromising on safety, giving you competitive prices for excellent services.


We are the minibus operator and do not charge booking or any other admin fees, booking direct with us often saves you from admin and other fees or commissions that are often applied to bookings by booking agents.

You can book our 8-16 passenger seat minibus hire with driver service.

We offer a meet and greet service, if required.

We offer our minibus hire with driver service for any and all occasions.

Our Pricing Model Is To Be Middle Of The Road.

Trying to be the cheapest. To use the business model of being the cheapest, you need to run the business on the cheap, you need to look at cutting corners, maybe running older vehicles, using cheapest insurance, employ the cheapest drivers paying them pennies, struggling to get and keep the drivers and having a large turnaround of drivers... Using the cheapest business model, your business will end at some point, plenty have.

Being the most expensive. We also feel being the most expensive, while it would be really nice to drive around in highly priced fancy high spec executive buses, with their fancy emblems, they also come with their high maintenance costs and repair bills, which someone has to pay... Adding it all together the fares will end up beyond most people's budgets, purses or wallets.

The middle ground. Our aim is to be in the middle, where we can provide a great vehicle, fully comprehensively insured, full maintenance agreements, with nothing ever being denied and the drivers being paid the industry standard so they equally offer you and your group a great experience with some good old fashioned quality of service and courtesy to match.

Most of us know you can't buy a five pound note for four pounds, and if you think you can, you'd be wise to check it, because unless the person selling it is a complete fool, my money's on it being a fake.

Matthew Thomas

I booked a minibus through DriveU to carry 12 people to a Vineyard in Dorset for my 25th birthday.

I have to say I was mightily impressed with the entire service, Chris the driver was a joy to speak with, he made booking easy and was extremely accommodating throughout the day.

It was a stress free process, very reliable and above all fairly priced.

Chris got us to our destination in good time, offered flexibility in pick up times and even allowed us an extra half hour to stop off at a pub. What a hero.

This isn't an ordinary taxi company, they are very relaxed and allow you to enjoy your day without any pressure.

Great drivers, great service, book with confidence.

Great service.

Chris was extremely helpful and replied to every email straight away, always kept us in the loop and was always considering different factors that we might not of thought of.

Very reasonable pricing and the nicest company I’ve dealt with when organising a stag party.

Will be using their service again for sure.

Jerry Laker

We couldn't ask for better.

DriveU coped with lousy weather and an awkward route to get us to and from our venue well on time, looking after the various needs of the passengers on the way.

We couldn't ask for better.

If I need another minibus outing, I know just where to come.

Thanks, Chris.

Blessed Week

Hi Chris,

Wanted to say thanks for a magic week getting us about on our cricket tour.

It was a blessed, magic week and I can't fault ya mate.

The Rams were not always angels but you blessed us with luck and we got 3 wins to seal a week of magic play.

10/10 would recommend - blessed service, magic bloke.
