e are happy to arrange a self-drive tour where we will reserve an appropriate size vehicle for your group and we will supply maps and good travel directions. Most of our 2 and 3 person bookings will receive a station wagon and most of our 4 person bookings receive a minivan. Most vans have automatic drive and motor insurance is always included.
The client will have the choice when they arrive if they wish to pay a supplement to reduce the excess. This is the amount you will be charged if the vehicle is damaged or involved in an accident, etc. The normal excess is around £500. This can be reduced to around £100 or even £0 dependant on vehicle choice if they choose to pay a supplement of around £10 per day. This is payable to the car hire company and we are not involved in the collection of this payment.
We do give driving tips on dealing with driving in Britain and Ireland when we meet you and assist in the collection of your rental van. We will escort you out of the airport towards your first destination. Getting used to the road network is always difficult on the first day particularly for first time visitors arriving after an overnight flight, so this assistance is usually appreciated.
GPS is included as standard.
As well as supplying good quality cars and vans to rent, we also can supply specialist higher performance vehicles for clients who prefer to travel this way. We can supply Mercedes, Porsche, Jaguar, Bentleys and many other luxury performance cars. You simply need to inform us when you are booking of your preference to have a higher performance car and we can provide a number of options.
We have a great selection of experienced drivers and high quality cars, minivans, minicoaches and full size coaches to handle groups of all sizes from 2 to 40 + people. We usually provide complimentary beers and waters as most of these vehicles have fridges, DVD’s, etc to make the travelling more comfortable.
The drivers are also very experienced in managing small group tours knowing the best pubs and restaurants etc and of course, they know all the courses and hotels.
