Around England with an E Type
One of Great Escape Classic Car Hire's Jaguar E Type V12 convertible has just returned from an 18 day hire. The customer returned very enthusiastic after 2,355 miles in the car during the hire and the car performed superbly.
The reliability of the car enabled the customer to complete his schedule of meetings and family engagements without a hiccup. The trip, which started and ended at our Cotswolds site near Stratford Upon Avon, took in Eastbourne, Newcastle, Doncaster, Birmingham, Southampton, Wales and the South West. During the demand hiring, which averaged 130 miles every day, the car only had a minor hiccup due to a faulty ignition barrel, which was fixed quickly by the roadside by our breakdown service. Not bad for a 40 year old car. The customer's had high praise for the car and is now flying back to his home in Hong Kong with plans to repeat the experience in October.
"At Great Escape we work extremely hard to maintain our cars to a high standard of reliability," says Graham Eason of Great Escape. "Keeping them in a condition such that someone can hire them without needing a degree in automotive mechanics to stay mobile is not always easy. Sometimes we fail but in the vast majority of cases we get it right. This hire is proof that a classic hire car from Great Escape is a great addition to any UK holiday."
The popularity of adding a classic hire car to a holiday in the UK is increasing, with Great Escape seeing a significant growth in the number of long 'holiday' hires. With 10 UK locations, Great Escape makes it very easy to hire a classic car as part of a holiday. It is even possible to collect a car from one location and return it to another, just as you can with mainstream car hire companies. Great Escape also offers a collection and delivery service so you can pick up the car from the airport.
