When it comes to planning a stag or hen weekend, organising transport can be a chore. Often, people in the group don’t want to spend too much, so finding an option that suits everyone isn’t easy. Bristol is a great city for a stag weekend with so much to see and excellent nightlife. You’ll find it easy to plan activities for the group to partake in around the city and surrounding areas. However, transporting the whole group can be difficult when relying on public transport. You may find it easier to consider a van hire in Bristol.

Why minibus hire in Bristol is the perfect solution

You can hire a van for the whole weekend and know that your transport to and from any activities that you’ve booked is covered. Relying on public transport doesn’t give you a lot of flexibility, with a minibus you’ll be able to decide when you travel. You’ll be able to park your van close to your hotel or accommodation so it’s easily accessible and ready to go whenever you need it. Minibus hire also includes insurance to give you peace of mind when hiring your vehicle.
