Great Escape Classic Car Hire, the UK’s largest specialist classic car rental fleet operator, says it is experiencing unprecedented demand for car hire in 2011. The news suggests the tourism industry in 2011 may be recovering and the trend towards ‘staycations’ is continuing. “Our advance bookings are significantly up on 2010,” explains Graham Eason of Great Escape. “Some of our cars are fully booked for popular weekends right up to November 2011, which is unprecedented. We have also sold a record number of gift vouchers, which will redeem during 2011. “We are recommending that customers who need particular cars for specific dates, such as for a wedding, book early to avoid disappointment.” Despite the popularity of its fleet, Great Escape Classic Car Hire has not changed its commitment to fair and transparent pricing. Customers still get a full 24 hours use for every day booked, unlimited mileage, comprehensive insurance and full AA breakdown cover. You can also book a single day at weekends and the price for weekends is the same as weekdays – there is no premium charged. Great Escape Classic Car Hire operates a fleet of 50 classic cars from 6 locations across the UK including Shropshire, Suffolk, Yorkshire, East Midlands and Worcestershire. The company’s entire fleet of cars can be booked online up to 12 months in advance – or specific dates can be reserved. For more details visit www.greatescapecars.co.uk or call 01527 893733.
