London, Wednesday 20 April. Visitors to London this summer will be able to escape the stress, heat and crowds of public transport thanks to H.R. Owen’s Chauffeur Drive offer.

The UK’s largest luxury dealer has a fleet of cars available to help visitors get around the capital in comfort and style, collecting from their home or hotel and delivering them wherever they want to go within the M25.

Chauffeur Drive customers will be able to take advantage of a special seasonal offer that sees the cost of a Rolls-Royce reduced by as much as 27% for the whole summer. The offer is available on both the Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase and the Ghost Extended Wheelbase models, and applies whether you take the car for an hour, or for the full day.

The full prices are as follows:

Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB – Day Rate [8 hours]: £749 (normal rate £895); Hourly Rate: £100 (£135); Heathrow to central London: £275 (£375)

Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB – Day Rate [8 hours]: £895 (normal rate £1100); Hourly Rate: £135 (£165); Heathrow to central London: £375 (£475)

The hourly hire rate carries a minimum hire period of five hours.

As well as the ultra luxurious Rolls-Royce models, H.R. Owen is pleased to be able to continue to offer a selection of other cars as part of the Chauffeur Hire scheme. Customers can also choose to travel around London in a Bentley Flying Spur, from as little as £85 an hour, or a Maserati Quattroporte, with prices starting at £65.

If you want to drive yourself around during your stay in London, then H.R. Owen Luxury Hire offers hassle free and convenient access to a range of high performance luxury and supercars. The fleet has been expanded for the summer with the addition of the fast and practical four-door, four-seat, four-wheel drive Ferrari FF and the Aston Martin Vantage V8 Roadster S.

The 6.3-litre V12 Ferrari, which is capable of 0-62mph in just 3.7sec, is the latest option available to customers wanting a taste of high-performance luxury, making it a perfect option for someone visiting the capital for a short period of time, or for someone who just wants to treat themselves.

The convertible Aston Martin is ideal for cruising around and making the most of the summer weather, and will allow passengers to make the most of the sound of the 436hp V8 engine while doing so.

H.R. Owen Special Projects Director Sharon Wright said: “London is probably the most prestigious city in the world, and visiting it can become an even more special occasion thanks to H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive and Luxury Hire.

“Whether you want someone to take the stress out of getting around the city for a shopping trip, or want to get from Heathrow to your hotel or home in comfort and style, Chauffeur Drive is perfect. It is an even more attractive and compelling option when you factor in our summer offer on the Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB and Phantom EWB. Why squeeze onto the tube with your bags when you can enjoy plenty of personal space in a Rolls-Royce?

“Short-term visitors, or London locals who want to treat themselves, will also be able to enjoy getting behind the wheel of our Ferrari FF and Aston Martin Vantage V8 S, which we have just added to the Luxury Hire fleet. We take care of everything, including insurance, so it is a simple way to sample life with a supercar.”

H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive and Luxury Hire are perfect examples of the dealer group’s total care offering to new, existing and potential supercar owners. H.R. Owen is the premier dealership for new and used sales and servicing, and is even able to help out when the worst happens, thanks to its recent acquisition of leading bodyshop Bodytechnics.
