Good old David Dickinson, he keeps tanning salons in work and brought us the immortal catch phrase ‘cheap as chips.’ Apart from its alliterative value it’s not quite clear what it actually means. But heyho, no doubt Dicko would approve of our expanding range of budget classic hire cars. Just £95 puts you behind the wheel.
Now you may imagine that £95 doesn’t get you much in the world of classic hire cars. If you’re looking to get one of our five E Types for that money the sadly you’ll be disappointed. But our budget fleet does offer variety and thrills to rival even Browns Lane’s finest. And, we might argue, without the high excesses and values that come with E Types et al, there is less to worry about which means more time to enjoy.
Our fleet of £95 Band A cars has been steadily growing because we want to make classic car hire more affordable and accessible. We have also invested in new workshops to maintain our cars which has reduced our costs, so we can reduce our prices (except for the 20% chunk that goes to the VAT man). The range, which can be hired from our sites in Yorkshire, Cotswolds and Devon, currently includes Morris Minor convertibles, classic Minis, MGFs and Saab 900 Turbo. For 2014 we will be adding Triumph Herald convertible, Fiat x1/9 and Jaguar XJS v12 coupe. And no doubt a few others we spot along the way.
Despite the low price we haven’t cut corners on the hire package. The 24 hr price of £95 and the weekend price of £160 include comprehensive insurance for 1 driver (extra drivers £25 each), unlimited mileage and full UK breakdown cover. Every hire day includes a full 24 hrs use and we offer flexible collection and return times during weekdays.
