Minibus Hire

1st Consett operates a 14 seat minibus which is available for hire by other Scout and Guide groups.

The minibus is a 2013 3.5 tonne ford transit.

All rear passenger seats have three point height adjustable seat belts.

Hires charges (inclusive of fuel) are:

  • £0.70 per mile plus
  • £50 per day

The minibus does not require a D1 licence. Drivers must be over 21 years old and under 70 years old, with a full clean licence. All groups must have their own Section 19 minibus permit to use the vehicle. The minibus cannot be driven away without a valid permit displayed.

The minibus does have a towbar. Electrics are 13 pin Euro socket, so you may need an adapter. Drivers must make sure they have the correct licence before towing a trailer.

** External groups can only book the minibus 3 months in advance. **

Please read our Minibus Terms and Conditions for further details and requirements before booking.
