What to look for when hiring exotic cars

If you want to make the right impression, you need to travel in style. Hiring exotic cars is a great way to turn heads. Arrive for your wedding day, turn up at your school formal, or take a chauffeur driven cruise around your local area, in a beautiful classic vehicle. Whether you prefer classic cars, limousines or sports cars, hiring the right vehicle will add the perfect finishing touch to any special day.

If you are hiring a car and driver for any reason, there are a few things you should bear in mind. These tips will help you hire from a reputable, reliable company, get a safe and comfortable vehicle, and ensure that everything runs smoothly when it matters.

Safety first: insurance and qualifications

When you hire a luxury vehicle with a driver, you need to know that you are in safe hands. Any trustworthy car hire service will use experienced drivers with clean licences, who have undergone a thorough background check and who are specially trained in chauffeur driving.

The vehicle you hire should be covered by comprehensive insurance, too. This includes third party cover for the car, plus liability cover to protect you and any other passengers.

Clean, safe vehicles

The exotic car you hire should be presented in immaculate condition, and the company should let you view it before you hire whenever possible. If the car is not clean or if you spot any signs of wear or damage, you may want to try another hire service instead. Exotic car fleets should be kept in pristine condition at all times, and the vehicles should be regularly serviced and valeted.

Clear fees and hire terms

When it comes to hiring luxury cars, some companies will add all manner of hidden charges to the final price. You should look for a service that includes all the extras as standard. Make sure you understand the terms of the deposit, as some are non-refundable. Finally, always double check the cost of overrunning your hire period - and your obligations in the event of damage to the car.

Any reputable company will be happy to talk you through all of these points, and provide evidence that they meet - or exceed - your expectations. You could get in touch with our classic car hire specialists to discover how we meet these standards, and to get a quote for car hire.
