Start Your Engines Plan

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update - Ultimate Drives

With the vaccine rollout and reduced travel restrictions, we understand people are ready to start planning trips.  However, while there is still some ongoing travel disruption, in some cases it remains challenging to fully commit to a booking. At the same time, if we leave the planning too late there will be availability issues, and prices can increase. 

Our Start Your Engines Plan, therefore, allows you to lock in a 2022 trip now, getting what you want at the current price with flexibility in the event that your trip has to be postponed should any new restrictions be put in place in 2022

Here is how it works:

  1. Book Now with reduced deposit - choose your preferred package and dates from our website.  We check availability, send you the offer and if you are happy to proceed, you can put the trip on hold now with a flexible deposit of just 20% (previously 40%)

  2. Pay the final Balance Later - your trip is locked in, your final balance will now be due just 2 weeks before the start of the trip (previously 6 weeks) meaning you have a much better idea whether travel will /wont be possible before paying a final balance

  3. Flexible deposit - in the event you cannot travel, we offer you two choices - option 1, you can receive a full refund of the deposit, or option 2, we hold the deposit, and guarantee the trip can be re-booked at the same price  

We are absolutely delighted the driving season in Europe is now up and running again, and hope these flexible arrangements allow you to start planning some driving fun, without the worry
