How long we retain your data

Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
- How does it work?
You simply give us a call, we check you meet our basic criteria for insurance purposes and we take a deposit to secure your booking. Once you have sent us your documents, we take the final payment and you are ready to go! You are then fully insured and booked in to drive the car of your choice.
- What’s included?
We include fully comprehensive insurance cover, 100 miles per day, full RAC break down cover with free recovery, a guide to the car and a free handover and intro to familiarise yourself with the quirks and features of the car.
- How old do I have to be to rent a car?
You have to be over the age of 26 and to have had a licence for at least 3 years. Our insurance is also limited to under 75 years old.
- Am I covered to go abroad?
Our cars are fully insured to drive in the UK only. If you are attending one of our rallies abroad, special permission for insurance may be granted on application only.
- Do you offer a delivery and collection service?
Without a doubt. Here at RNG Classics we pride ourselves on our bespoke service. No matter where your hire occasion is being held, we are happy to provide a service to meet your needs.
- Can I view your selection of cars prior to booking?
Of course! All our cars are available to view prior to booking by appointment. Feel free to call us to book in a day with us.
- Can I create a gift voucher for someones birthday?
Indeed, we can tailor gift vouchers to any amount or product. This will be printed in high quality and suitably gift wrapped with added personalisation.
- Is it possible for more than one person to drive the car?
Yes, if you would like to add an additional driver to your hire term, let us know in advance so we can arrange for the paperwork to be done. This will be priced separately.
- What happens if I break down?
You will be covered by full roadside RAC breakdown assist for the duration of your hire term. All our cars are fully serviced and tested on a regular basis and kept to a very high standard. As with all things classic, there can be no 100% guarantee that our cars will not encounter a problem. All possible measures have been made to ensure our classics perform at their optimum capability ensuring the chance of a breakdown is kept to a minimum. If we do have to intervene, we are always on hand to help and will swap you out with our next available classic car and look to upgrade you in the process.
- Are the cars easy to drive?
Classic cars are not as user friendly as modern cars; one does wonder how we all survived before power steering and Bluetooth! Not to fear, our classics are very user friendly and surprisingly straightforward to drive. We will give you a demonstration before each hire period including some basic road tuition to build your confidence and get a feel for your chosen classic before hitting the open road on your own!
- Do the convertibles come with a hood?
Yes, come rain or shine, our classic cars all have hoods that are straightforward to put up. We will give a full demonstration on this before you leave. Each car also has a user guide included outlining the functions of the car.
