Five cars, one great day - our 2014 rally calendar is here
If you love classic cars but can’t decide exactly which one, then Great Escape Cars may have the answer. The classic car hire company has announced its rally days for 2014, which let you get behind the wheel of five of the best classic cars from the last 50 years for just £199.
Great Escape Cars is running eight rally days during 2014 from its Devon, Yorkshire and Cotswolds sites between May and October. The routes vary but the format is the same – 100-150 miles of driving on hand-picked A and B roads taking in some of the best scenery and routes in the local area. Every driver gets their hands on five classic cars including E Types, Mk2 Jaguars, Jensen Interceptor and Triumph TR6. The full day includes insurance, fuel and lunch, plus breakfast on arrival. Non-driving passengers can accompany drivers for just £99.
The 2014 rally day calendar is the company’s largest ever with new events added at each of the three sites to reflect customer demand. In 2013 Great Escape’s driving days were heavily over-subscribed thanks to feedback from previous customers and very positive reviews posted online.
The Great Escape rally days are only available to buy direct from the company via its website www.greatescapecars.co.uk or by phone on 01527 893733. Buying direct means you don’t pay commission or mark-up to an experience day agency and Great Escape can provide a day that provides excellent value for money. Customers can book onto a particular rally or buy a general rally voucher that is valid for 12 months and enables them to select a rally later.
The rally days are based on a format developed by Great Escape for its corporate clients and includes regular breaks and car changes plus high quality route maps and guides. Each day is accompanied by at least two Great Escape staff with a support vehicle and spare car. Spaces are limited to a maximum of 20 people, which ensures the maximum amount of driving time and minimum delays during the day.
“The rally days are a great alternative to self drive hire because they let customers drive a selection of our favourite cars on our favourite local roads,” explains Graham Eason of Great Escape. ”We have constantly improved the rallies since we launched then in 2011 and we now have a format that seems to be very popular with customers judging by the feedback we receive.
“For just £199 you get a full day’s driving with everything included.”
