Turn a romantic break into a great escape


Hiring a classic open-top sports car is the perfect way to turn a romantic weekend break into a stylish and distinctive escape. Cotswold-based Great Escape Classic Car Hire has the ultimate drop-top wheels to accompany a Valentine’s break, an Alfa Romeo Spider.

The classic two-seater Alfa Spider was made famous by Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate. Its combination of swooping Italian bodywork and crackling twin cam engine means that it appeals equally to men and women. The Great Escape car features burgundy metallic paintwork and tan interior and is fitted with the classic Alfa two litre twin cam engine.

You can hire the Alfa from Great Escape for just £125 for 24 hours or £200 for a weekend. Hire includes unlimited mileage, 24 hours use for every hire day, insurance, breakdown cover and even carbon offsetting. Great Escape can also prepare picnic hampers and deliver the car to your local accommodation.

If you fancy something a little more sedate, Great Escape also has a Jaguar XJS V12 convertible, which is perfect for relaxed cruising of the Cotswold lanes.

The Alfa and Jaguar share garage space with a 1974 Jensen Interceptor V8 coupe and a 1957 Morris Minor Traveller. All cars are available for daily, weekend and weekly hire from Great Escape’s central base near Junction 5 of the M5 and Junction 2 of the M42, just 2 hours from central London. Hire includes 24 hours use, unlimited mileage, insurance, breakdown cover, storage of your car, carbon offsetting and a free trip planning service.

“For a little extra you can now turn a weekend break into an unforgettable romantic escape,” says Graham Eason of Great Escape. “The Alfa is hugely enjoyable and great fun.”
