Best Sellers: Our Handy Gift Guide

Santa is revving up his sleigh, Rudolph is polishing his nose and across the land the old and young are committing gift wishes to paper. And if petrol runs through your veins, we hope there's a slim chance that one of our experiences might be on your list.

In the interests of purely helping out - ok, with a heavy dash of self interest too - we thought it might be useful to deep dive into our range of experiences and pick out the most popular. They're the driving experiences our customers most often pick. Here goes...

Jaguar Icons Experience

In the early 1960s Jaguar gave the world two proper, no debate icons: the E Type and the Mk2. A sports car and a saloon car. Two very different cars that are brilliant for very different reasons. With our Jaguar Icons Experience you can drive both for 60 minutes each on quiet country roads. That's a full hour in a 1969 E Type 4.2 coupe and the same again in a 1965 Mk2 3.4 with manual overdrive gearbox.

The experience includes a choice of 20 mile touring routes, fuel for the route, insurance for the driver and any passengers you can - legally - fit in the car. All for just £149. FIND OUT MORE or call 01527 893733, use the Chat box or email info@greatdrivingdays.co.uk.

Break For The Border Road Trip

This is where it all started. We launched our new approach to classic car hire in 2012 with this experience, a 200 mile circuit across to the Welsh Borders and back. We've been running it ever since - unchanged, because the route is just so good.

On the Break For The Border Road Trip You get the chance to drive five different cars from our fleet - including an E Type - on this full day of driving. We provide full event support - including a spare car - and simple to follow route guides. Prices are £299 for drivers and £150 for passengers. Fuel and insurance are included. Book now and get 16% off the price.

E Type Classic Taster

Our 60 Minute Classic Tasters are designed to put you behind the wheel of your dream classic without breaking the bank. And our E Type Taster is the most popular.

The format is simple. You get an hour driving our 1969 Jaguar E Type coupe on quiet country roads. We provide a choice of routes, all designed to get you away from the crowds. Fuel for the route, insurance for the driver and passenger places are all included.

The E Type Taster costs just £99. To find out more click here or call 01527 893733, use the Chat box or email info@greatdrivingdays.co.uk.

Driving Trails

Our unique Driving Trails let you immerse yourself in one of our cars without the hassle of also having to sort fuel or work out where to go. Everything is included: the car, fuel and your choice of driving routes. And passengers go free. So when you give the of a Driving Trail, you're giving a complete driving experience, not a 'classic Hertz' day out that requires additional thought and planning.

You can choose between half day 4 hour Driving Trails and 8 hour full day Trails. They're available on all of our cars. You can choose a Trail for a specific car or pick one of our bands - Silver or Gold - and let the recipient choose the car. Prices start at just £149.

Cotswolds Highlights Tour

For 2022 we've expanded our range of Road Trips to include more destinations, but we suspect our perennial Cotswolds Highlights Tour will remain our most popular. It does exactly what it says on the tin - introduces you to this beautiful area over 100 varied miles. With the added bonus of a lunch stop at the iconic Caffeine & Machine near Stratford.

Just like all our full day Road Trips, the Highlights Tour puts you behind the wheel of five classic cars - including an E Type - during a full day of driving. This Tour is designed for a gentler pace than our longer Break For The Border and Welsh Triangle trips but provides a similar amount of driving time.

Prices for our full day standard tours like the Cotswolds Highlights Tour start at £249 per driver and £130 for passengers. Book now and save 16%.

Gold Classic Taster

If you're not sure which car you want to drive - or the person you're buying the gift for - then our Gold Taster fits the bill. It gives the recipient access to a wide range of our cars from BMW Z3 to Jaguar Mk2 and most points in between. They get a full hour in their choice of car with fuel and insurance included. And passengers go free.
