What’s Included?

On our escorted group tours we include the following within the price:

  • Accommodation: For your comfort and enjoyment we carefully hand-pick quality, luxury, 4-5 star boutique hotels with style, charm, atmosphere and personality. Hotels are usually in the local style and always have suitable parking for your classic, vintage or sports car, which is occasionally undercover or in a garage. Any parking charges are always included within the tour price. All taxes, resort fees and applicable gratuities are also included.
  • Breakfasts: A good breakfast is always included to help you start the day.
  • Dinners: We include dinner on most evenings. Where we stay two nights in a hotel then dinner will be included on the first evening, leaving you free to dine at your leisure on the second evening, although we do offer recommendations in the tour book. When the hotel is rural and there is nowhere else to dine, we shall include all dinners.
  • Wine: Half a bottle of wine per person is included with each dinner. Please let us know when booking if you don’t drink wine so we can make alternative arrangements.
  • Tour Book: Each car is given a comprehensive tour book with easy-to-follow directions. We also include route maps, hotel details, and lots of information on everything to do, see and visit each day. The tour book also has lots of useful information about the country or region you’re visiting. Each tour book will come in a clear plastic zip bag to keep it dry along with the road atlas.
  • Road Atlas: All cars on our escorted tours will be given a good, clear and detailed road atlas showing the areas you’re travelling through.
  • Regalia: Each car on a group tour will be given a rally plate, ballpoint pen with highlighter, and window sticker. On some longer tours we also give clothing or bags, embroidered with the tour logo.
  • Mechanical Assistance: On our tours outside the UK we usually have a mechanic to accompany the tour. They will carry a comprehensive set of tools and equipment and they will also be able to carry a reasonable amount of spares (provided by the tour participants) in case of emergency. On some tours there may also be a limited luggage-carrying service.
  • Tour Director: Each tour is fully escorted by Sarah Dowding and an assistant, to ensure your trip is hassle-free and great fun.
  • Visits: We often include visits on our tours – museums, car collections (private and public), historic buildings/stately homes, sailing trips, vineyard tours, concerts, private lunches, private city guided tours etc. The visits vary with each tour and are detailed in the itinerary.
  • Ferries: Where applicable/necessary the ferry crossing (or Eurotunnel) will be included with the tour. The exception to this is where ferries cannot be pre-booked (eg across fjords in Norway, chain ferries across small waterways etc).
