"Why not treat someone special to a This was indeed a dream come true. The cars arrival was a complete surprise which made it all the more exciting. The Aston arrived on
time and the delivery was quick and straightforward. The driver was friendly and approachable and no question, (however stupid it may have sounded to him!) was met with anything less than good humour
and a reasonable reply. The tuition was efficient and I soon got the hang of things.
The car was in excellent order.
The interior was spotless and so was the boot and engine bay. The engine was the main focus for the more "technically minded" spectators!
Throughout the weekend the car performed perfectly.
Collection was on time and the driver was friendly, courteous, and even took the time to talk about this car and the others in the range.
I had an absolutely brilliant time and would recommend the experience to anybody. Moreover I think the service received, both in the booking process and on delivery and
recovery of the car, enhanced the whole experience, and I would be happy to recommend Aston Hire to friends and family."
"The driving trip of a lifetime" - Gwen & Alec Bates
"What we planned was the trip of a lifetime over two and half weeks and over 2500 miles, through Northern Europe in an open topped Aston Martin, the coolest car
manufactured, taking in the Italian and Belgium Formula 1 Grand Prix's.
Where ever we went the Aston attracted immediate attention and arriving in the city square of Rouen the locals were all over the car, this continued through out our trip
and especially in Italy where the youth swooned! The weather though not really hot, was warm enough to have the top down for the vast majority of the trip and we took full advantage of open air
As we arrived back at our hotel in London the Aston Hire transporter was waiting and the car was immediately loaded. Quite frankly we had pangs to see it leave as it had
been the source of so much fun over the last two and a half weeks.
In terms of the DB7 it is very much a driver's car with an immense amount of power and acceleration, driving it requires a certain amount of respect and concentration and
you have to overlook a number of Aston foibles. With hind sight it was truly the "Trip of a Life Time" and we are both committed Aston fans and I think the DB7 vantage with become a great classic car
in the future and you can see already how prices are pushing upwards.
We would love to own one but living in Johannesburg it is not practical, as driving long distances is just not done and it is easier to fly the 1000 miles to Cape Town.
Keeping a car in the UK again for very limited use again would be foolish.
The sensible thing, would be just to hire a one through Aston Hire as and when we need it and the DB9 Volante is next on the list but perhaps after the winter. By the way
in mid October I am testing the new Mclaren SLR at Paul Richard in the South of France, as a guest of Nick Faldo so that should be fun. Someone has to do it !!!
Finally, thanks to you all at Aston Hire for helping to making this such a memorable trip and really for my wife and myself it was a dream come true and really " the
driving trip of a lifetime"
