When you think of car rental, you often think of a pretty insipid four-door hatchback that you just use to get you from the airport to your destination of choice when you’re away on business or on hols. These sports car hire deals from IntotheBlue couldn’t be any more different. We’re talking supercar rentals, classic cars, vintage motors and more all at your disposition.
Take for example the fantastic Austin Healey 3000. It’s a wonderful-looking car and great fun to drive on the open roads, as you can see from this Healey Hire video!
The idea is that you can ‘try out’ some of your all-time favourite motors on the real roads. This gives you that really authentic driving experience, as you’ll be negotiating junctions, roundabouts traffic lights and all the rest of it. But make no mistake, this isn’t a typical commute. You’ll be following itineraries that allow you to really ‘open up’ your hired car, taking quiet roads and tranquil routes that you’ll love.
What’s included on these car hire deals?
The first question many of you ask is just what is included in these classic, sports and vintage car rental packages. Refer to each individual product page individually for the full lowdown, but in general, all the insurance, breakdown assistance and fuel is included. You’ll also get maps and a route plan, with suggested stopping points.
Some of the self drive tours are completely autonomous, whilst others are run as a host-led road trip in convoy with other cars and you stop and swap cars regularly en-route. That means you get to drive several fab cars during the course of your hire session, which car fans absolutely love.
The Rules of the Road
Whilst many of the classic cars on the hire books were built in the days before variable speed limits and motorways, you do have to adhere to the current rules of the road on these drives. All cars hired out are roadworthy, road legal, well-maintained and with up to date servicing and MoTs.
It’s worth remembering though, that a vintage car won’t have such mod cons as power steering, ABS and the like. So before you jump into the driving seat and speed off, most hirers will be shown around the car by the operator, so you’ll made aware of any idiosyncrasies before your leave on your self-drive tour.
