I recently received an email from a client asking: “Why is it so hard to find luxury self-drive minibus hire?”. This is an interesting point, but the answer essentially comes down to cost and practicality. A company that provides self-drive vehicles would not benefit from providing luxury vehicles due to the substantial cost and potential problematic factors.
For example, when a minibus/coach company supplies a self-drive vehicle to a customer, all the insurance costs are accounted for as well as the potential repair costs. So with most standard self-drive vehicles being used as ‘run arounds’ for things like school runs, it means that the idea of a bad driver accidentally scraping the side of the bus isn’t too much of an issue.
However, if a company were leaving the responsibility of a high price Mercedes Benz in the hands of a customer then the potential risks are phenomenal, I mean, would you leave your brand new Lamborghini in the hands of someone you’ve never met before for a day? To provide a luxury self-drive vehicle would be a very small market to gamble against the cost of maintenance.
In addition to this, isn’t the whole idea of luxury travel a chance to experience a bit of the high life? Most would consider luxury as being able to put your feet up while a chauffeur drives you to your destination. If you were looking to transport a group in luxury, what better way than to have a quality minibus or coach that is driven for you. Taking away all the stress of driving and being able to relax in a large comfortable vehicle for the duration.
