Occasionally the combination of petrol fumes and old car aromas clear my mind sufficient to allow a brain wave. And so it was this week. To coincide with our long-delayed price rise on 1st November we introduced a payment plan option for customers. Just life a sofa you split the cost into four equal payments that are equally spaced before the hire.
It’s a simple idea but it seems people love it. Since it launched the feedback has been great and the take up superb. And it’s not like we didn’t already offer a sort of payment plan – for hires more than 6 weeks in advance we only take a 25% deposit, with the balance due 6 weeks prior. However, this option can leave the customer with one fairly sizeable sum to pay. The installment plan solves this by creating four relatively small equal payments.
So if you choose to hire a Jaguar E Type for the weekend next July then options might look like this:
Pay in full
Deposit & balance
There is no charge for the installment service and it’s completely optional. But it’s part of our efforts to make hiring a classic car more affordable and attainable. As far as we know Great Escape Cars is the only company offering different payment plans for customers.
The added advantage of paying in installments or via our deposit and balance option is that you avoid the price rise – the price you pay is the price in place on the day you booked.
The new payment options apply to everything we sell – car hire, packages and events.
We want our booking process to be simple and transparent. So we don’t apply hidden fees – no charges for payment cards of any type and the price we quote already includes VAT.
