There is nothing people in the UK like more than travelling by minibus. This is proven by the number of minibus companies and the number of people using them as a form as of transport. There a lot of plus points about minibus travel and a dolphin minibus in particular.
There are benefits of using a dolphin minibus when compared to other modes of public transport; a minibus offers the chance for a group to travel together whatever the size and a dolphin minibus can come in various sizes each one can be catered to the needs of the passenger. Sizes can start from eight seaters going up to minibuses with 28 to 30 seaters; the most widely used models tend to be the 15 and 17 seaters.
The chance for a group of 15 or 17 people to be able to travel together is big reason for the popularity of the minibus, trains can be extremely costly and sometimes involve two or three different transfers, and travel by plane is also costly and can be a hassle. Although you can often get seats on trains and planes where the group are seated together, it involves sharing your journey with other members of the public and their privacy must be respected. This means that things like noise must be kept to a minimum. Minibus travel allows passengers to socialise as they wish without the worry of offending other passengers.
Using the car is another method of transport that can be used instead of a minibus; there are many reasons why a dolphin minibus can benefit over the car. Travelling in a group will mean that there will be a need for more than one car; taking two, three or even four cars can be extremely costly on fuel and cause wear and tear on a car, especially if travelling long distances. Minibuses offer the chance for the total cost of travel to be divided equally amongst each passenger, saving each person precious money that can be used for spending. Having a driver with your minibus will also mean the stress of driving is taken away.
