If you’re a man (or woman) of a certain age then you’ll know that Christmas gifts all too often seem to be about just one thing – socks. Or maybe if you’re lucky, something knitted. To be fair to any gift-givers reading this, once you hit a certain age it’s not an easy task finding something they might actually want. Hence the socks. Or is it. In a quiet corner of the internet Great Escape Classic Car Hire has been beavering away creating some grown up gifts that we think grown up men and women actually want. No, we don’t mean fancy cufflinks or paperweights in the shape of Jaguar E Types. Instead we’ve created a range of classic car experiences and gift vouchers that are the stuff, we think, of dreams. For the price of a second hand XBox you could be sitting behind the wheel of a Jaguar E Type for 24 hours. Or swap that woolly jumper and for the same money drive a Mazda MX5.
Alongside our standard classic car hire service we also offer a range of classic car rallies and gift experiences. These include The E Type story, which lets you drive an E Type, XJS and XKR back to back over a weekend as well as more sedate adventures like our Antiques Roadtrip. Our classic car rallies are increasingly popular – for just £199 you can get behind the wheel of 5 different classic cars on a 100 mile loop of some of our favourite roads around our Yorkshire and Cotswolds sites. This price includes insurance, fuel and even lunch. Our Christmas gift packages are only available direct from us. So you don’t pay an activity provider’s mark up. It also means we aren’t inundated with people so we can keep everything personal and friendly. You also get genuine value – a place on one of our rallies costs roughly the same as a supercar day from one of the major activity providers. But instead of a few minutes on a track in a Lamborghini you get 7 full hours behind the wheels of a range of classic cars. So if you fancy swapping the socks for a day in an E Type or any one of our 70 classic hire cars, send this story to someone you know. And tell them if they book by Christmas they’ll get 10% off. That’ll sock it to them. For more details on our range of Christmas gift experiences for men and women visit http://www.greatescapecars.co.uk and visit our Online Shop. Or call 01527 893733.
