Thank you again for Saturday.  It will certainly go down as one of the most memorable days we have had as a family.  We will definitely be in touch again and might make it up as a yearly event for the Jaguar E-Type ! We would love to leave you a review so please pass on the details if you wish.

On Saturday 22nd Apr 2017, I hired a Jaguar E Type 3.8 from Luxury classic Jaguar Hire, the service was 1st class and the hire process was easy and stress free. I was greeted at the pick up location of the car and was guided through on how to use it as it was my first hire for a car of its age. The value for money was well worth it and the car was in immaculate condition. I will be using Luxury Classic Jaguar Hire from now on and will be returning to hire other Jaguars they offer in the future. I would highly recommend this company for anybody who is wanting to experience a blast from the past or make a great entrance at an event or Wedding.

Also, can I just say, the whole experience was first class – a really remarkable, faultless and stunningly beautiful Jaguar E-type and great customer service. If you ever need an endorsement, we would happily recommend you.
