Van rental with chauffeur, Edinburgh region: decent minibus hire

Minibus rental services in Edinburgh aren't just there for airport transfers. Families in the city for leisure can use the spacious vans as an easy way to get to other locations. Edinburgh has plenty to offer within its center, but there are also beautiful attractions and scenic landscapes a little further afield. Your minibus can ferry you all to the Zoo, Leith, or maybe to a game at Murrayfield. The same goes for any groups in the city on business. Wherever you need to go for your conference or important product pitch, you can get there in style.

Then there are the financial implications. When you have a large group traveling between locations all week, that's a lot of potential fares. One tram ticket might not sound expensive. 10 tickets twice a day for a week starts to add up. When you book a minibus in advance, you don't have to worry about these additional travel expenses.

8Rental's target is a provision of top-of-the-range chauffeured minibus hire in Edinburgh at competent & acceptable tariffs. 8Rental's principal objective - right & smooth passenger transportation on Edinburgh streets, motorways, vicinity, & Lothian's directions.  Convenience, smoothest ride, kindness - important principles of hiring 8Rental's minibusses driven by gracious Lothian drivers.
