Don't Shoot

We have just updated the Aston Martin page with some of the images from our 'classic curves' project. Sadly we did not have enough time to produce our classic curves calendar for 2013 but we hope to have something special ready for the end of this year.

We have a very broad range of classic cars available for self drive hire from a Frogeye Sprite to a classic Mercedes so whatever the occasion we have the special classic to suit.

Really Useful Stuff

The Self Drive Classics range of classic car gifts continues to grow and we are always looking for new ideas. The latest addition is a classic style radio with the look from the 50's/60's, a proper tuning dial but this version does pick up FM! Our range of gifts and accessories complements our self drive hire cars so you can not only hire the car but also add something as a memento of the day.

Why More And More People Are Choosing To Rent A Classic Car

Having the opportunity to rent a classic car is something which many people think they don’t have, yet it is very simple to organise for a loved one. Most classic car rental companies will be able to produce a gift voucher for customers to buy, as they make brilliant gifts for those people who never know what to buy for their loved one!

With Father’s Day just a couple of weeks away, a classic car rental gift voucher can make the perfect gift. But of course, it’s not just men who are experiencing a mid-life crisis who have the desire to hire a classic car for the weekend. Increasing numbers of groups of friends, both male and female, are choosing to hire a car for a day or two whilst they cruise around the country lanes of their favourite county. They may incorporate the car rental in with a long weekend spent in a remote cottage where they can chill out and get away from domesticity.

Whatever the reason for the weekend break, it can be made so much more special by travelling there and around the surrounding areas in style. On the other hand, the classic car may only be rented for an afternoon – perhaps for a wedding where the bride and her father wish to arrive in style or perhaps the groom wishes to whisk his new wife away somewhere romantic following the evening reception.

The bride and groom will often have the choice as to whether they wish to be chauffeur driven, or if they would prefer to experience the thrill of driving a classic car and choose to drive the motor themselves.

Proms seem to be an increasingly popular activity for many school leavers and university graduates, and one way to make a grand entrance is by arriving in a classic car. Being able to rent a classic car is relatively simple though there will be some terms and conditions stipulated by the hire company. There may be an age restriction on the minimum age of the driver due to insurance costs and generally speaking the driver will need to have a clean licence.

If you would like a rent a classic car or if you would perhaps like to research classic car rental for a friend, then feel free to visit the website for further information.
