Essential Information

Location

26 Dunlop Road, Hunt End Industrial Estate, Redditch, B97 5XP. Tel: 01527 893733

When you enter the estate, continue straight ahead and you will find us about 100m along on the right. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN OUR YARD - we are constantly moving cars and trailers and you risk damage to your car.

parking

You will find ample parking in front of and to the side of our unit.  We are on a quiet, safe industrial estate but parking is at your own risk.

paperwork

When you arrive for your road trip each driver MUST bring the following or you will not be able to drive.  Unfortunately there are no exceptions:

Please note - due to the volume of customers on each experience, we cannot do a DVLA check for you on the day.  

Any questions, please call 01527 893733 or email roadtrips@greatescapecars.co.uk

arrival & departure time

When you booked your experience you will have received a start time.  Please ensure you know what this is and please arrive 15 minutes before your start time to complete paperwork.

We aim to run to time.  But please allow some flexibility in the event that your start time has to be pushed back slightly. 

clothing & shoes

Please dress appropriately for a day in classic cars.  Old cars generally have poor weather protection and poor heaters.  In particular wear suitable footwear - most classic cars have narrow pedal boxes unsuitable for heavy shoes.

REFRESHMENTS

Tea, coffee and water are provided at our unit free of charge. 

how the experience works

When you arrive we will check your paperwork and driving licence.  You will have the option to take out the Collision Damage Waiver (£15) to reduce the insurance excess to zero (from £1000). 

We will then show you around the car and introduce you to the controls and other useful information.  We will also explain the driving routes available and provide route guides. 

When you are ready to leave, head off using the route guide.  Each route allows 45-60 minutes driving.  

Please ensure you return to our unit on time (60 minutes) to avoid additional costs. 

The cars

We strongly recommend that you look at our advice films and car guides to familiarise yourself with our fleet.  You can view them here. This will help you get more out of each car more quickly during the day.

We really want you to enjoy your road trip.  If you have any questions before you arrive, please call us on 01527 893733 or email roadtrips@greatescapecars.co.uk.
