Lisbon minibus rental – compare prices for minibus car hire
In Lisbon, minibus and MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) hire cars are quite cheap – especially in low season.
From time to time you will be able to book a minibus for up to 8 passengers plus driver for around €300 for 7 days of Lisbon car hire.
Car hire rates for Lisbon minibuses come summer-time
It is worth noting that cheap Lisbon car hire offers for minibuses usually only are available online.
If renting a minibus for up to 9 people in the holiday season, you may be quoted considerably higher prices. In August for instance, a Lisbon minibus hire in Lisbon for 7 days may cost as much as €750 or more when booked in July.
In July 2011, a booking of the cheapest minibus in Lisbon Airport only a few days in advance was €743 for 7 days of Lisbon car hire. Some offers for full size MPV vehicles with 7 seats were exceeding €1.000 for a week of Lisbon car hire in July when booking only a few days in advance.
Often an expensive MPV (VW Sharan, Ford Galaxy, Seat Alhambra or similar) will be the only option for late reservations, when the limited number of cheaper minibuses for hire are gone.
If you make your minibus booking in Lisbon for the months of July or August already in April or May, you may be able to find minibus vehicles or full size MPV’s for rent at rates from approx. €500 for a 7 days Lisbon car hire.
Best advise: Book your minibus in Lisbon in good time
When renting a minibus in Lisbon, always be sure to book well in advance for several reasons:
- Firstly, the number of minibuses are much more limited than the number of standard passenger cars for hire. Late bookings may result in no minibuses being available.
- Secondly, car hire prices for minibuses in Lisbon Airport as well as downtown Lisbon tend to fluctuate a lot with supply and demand. High season means high demand.
- Thirdly: Walk-in customers for minibus car hire in Lisbon nearly always will be quoted the highest rates at the car hire company counters.
In other words: If you know for a fact that you will need a minibus say 2-3 months in advance, making the booking online for your planned stay in Portugal may save you from €50 to €250 or more compared to booking your minibus or minivan (MPV) a few days or weeks before arriving in Lisbon.
