Looking for Albania minivan rental? Rather than hire a VW Transporter or Mercedes Vito, why not go for the more adventurous option of the legendary UAZ Buhanka?

We have two Buhankas available to hire, both equipped with air-conditioning. These are the Jubilee special edition, built to celebrate 60 years of continuous production. They came from the factory with nine seats, but we’ve removed two to create more space for luggage and to give passengers more comfort, too. The Buhanka is of course built to go off-road, so is ideal if you want to explore rural Albania or to enjoy a wild-camping trip.

Due to the technical nature of these vehicles and their famously delicate transmissions, we are only able to provide our Buhankas with one of our own experienced drivers at the wheel (his fee is included in the hire price; you are responsible for covering his accommodation and meals).
