Classic car hire? Spiffing, old chap!

As Julian Cope once said, there’s no getting around getting around. Sigh, that is so true. So, today, we’re talking about transportation. Planes, trains and – in this case – automobiles. If you find that owning a modern, but perhaps a bit boring, car is not enough and you want to leap back in time and feel the wind rushing through your hair (what’s left of it) as you careen around corners and hedgerows in a curvy, fire-breathing sports car from the distant past, then read on.

Our affiliate friends, Caledonian Classics, based in Scotland, can make your dream come true. You can rent classic cars from the 1960’s and onwards (see the full inventory, below) and can re-live or discover what it’s like to hear the purr of a Jaguar E-Type Coupe, a Morgan 4/4, Triumph Stag and more. They also offer mini-tours. The mini-tour is an ideal gift for a special birthday.

Their mini-tour package includes the following.

Private parking for your own car if required.
Complimentary drinks on arrival.
Two days classic car hire in your chosen car with unlimited mileage and two drivers insured if required.
Two nights bed and breakfast for two people at Oakmount Cottage.
Personalised book with a route plan, itinerary and map.
Reservation of dinner at local restaurants.
They can arrange taxis transfers from local airports (Edinburgh/Glasgow) or train stations at preferential rates.

You can, of course, select any accommodation. Either way, pull up in your Jaguar to the Melville Castle Hotel. Click here to book.

Edinburgh, Midlothian and all of Scotland is your playground. Click here to book.

You might want a car to go get your classic. (You can also take the train, of course. Click here for that.) AutoEurope is your best choice. Click here.
