A social excursion is a great time for you to engage in a fun activity with a group, whether small or large. You could be looking to spend a fun weekend with family, go on a wild adventure with friends or build some rapport with your work colleagues.

When looking to book the perfect social excursion you should consider what will be the best choice of transport. For various reasons, booking a minibus hire is widely regarded as one of the best ways to get from place to place, particularly if going long distances with a large group of people.

One of the first benefits to consider with a minibus hire is the flexibility you will have. You don’t have to depend on your whole group meeting the demands of public bus timetables or worry about arriving to your social event too early or late. Instead, organising a minibus will ensure that your group is kept together and that drop off and pickup times will be arranged to suit your requirements best. You are in control of your transport; leave behind the stress of a member of your group running behind time.

You should also think about where you want to visit for your social excursion. Using the public transport system will not only typically cost you more money, but there are no guarantees that your activity is a possible destination or whether there are enough seats for your party. With a minibus hire you can ensure that there is enough capacity as well as not only arranging the destination you want, but also the ideal drop off and pickup points.

The transport to and from your social excursion should form part of the day’s entertainment. With a minibus hire you don’t have to worry about loud talking or singing disrupting the general public. Minibuses will also usually feature an array of entertainment options such as music speakers and television.

Ideas for Your Social Excursions

Looking for ideas for your social excursions? Here are some of the best we can think of:

  • Alton Towers – This theme park is one of the best in the country for young people and families. With the park quite out of the way in Staffordshire, a minibus hire makes for a great transport choice.
  • Blackpool Illuminations – With an abundance of arcades, rides and other seaside amenities, Blackpool is a popular attraction all year round. But the resort is an even better place to visit between August and November when the illumination lights are activated.
  • Trafford Centre – The best place to visit in the North West for shopping enthusiasts. Visitors can also play Laser Quest, go to an aquarium or conquer their skydiving fears, so there’s a little bit of something for everyone.
  • Peak District – If you love exploring national parks then the Peak District is the place for you. This destination offers walking, cycling and camping opportunities while catching incredible views of the English scenery.
