Win a classic car hire weekend

When was the last time that someone bought a car for you? That’s exactly what my company Great Escape Classic Car Hire is offering one fortunate enthusiast. Its unique online competition lets visitors suggest the next car that Great Escape should buy – and gives them the chance to win a weekend drive in their suggestion.

Visitors to my website at can click on the competition link and vote for the car that they would like to drive. I’ll donate 50p to MacMillan Nurses for every entry. Visitors can choose any car for Great Escape to buy, although the company is particularly looking for unusual and iconic classics like the Chevrolet Corvette, De Lorean DMC12, VW Kharmann Ghia and Ford Mustang. It already has a Jensen Interceptor, Alfa Romeo Spider and Jaguar XJS V12 convertible available for daily, weekend and weekly hire.

The winner will receive a gift voucher, valid for 12 months, that entitles them to a 2 day weekend hire of the car, plus the chance to attend a photoshoot of the new car for Great Escape’s website. Depending on the car this prize is worth between £400 and £500.

Great Escape will buy the new car over the winter and have it ready in time for spring 2008.

Choosing the right classic car to hire is not easy and there are no right answers. This competition helps ensure that we choose the right car – and gives someone who loves that car the chance to drive it. And it helps a very worthwhile charity too.

We’ll look at the suggestions and buy the car with the most votes that fits our policy of offering unusual and iconic cars for hire.

For me that’s what classic car hire is all about – giving customers the opportunity to drive a car they love without the hassle and cost of ownership.

Great Escape is based near Redditch and is ideally located for the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Welsh Borders and Forest of Dean. We specialise in stylish classics that are not generally available to hire elsewhere.

Great Escape’s hire package includes 24 hours use, unlimited mileage, insurance, breakdown cover and free of charge carbon offsetting. For more details visit or call 01527 893733 or email
