Happy New Year 2017 to everyone.

We started trading in 1997 so 2017 is our 20th year of running The Open Road making us one of longest established classic car hire companies in the UK.


Our Warwickshire hire fleet offers a range of vintage classic, sports cars: 1961 Jaguar Mark II saloon, 1963 Austin Healey 3000 MkIIa, 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Fastback GT, 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Convertible1969 MG MGB Roadster, 1970 Jaguar E-type Roadster (convertible) and a 1974 Triumph TR6 as well a more modern take on the classic Lotus 7 sports car - a Caterham Super 7.  


When we started our classic car hire company in 1997 our plan was to hire out just classic British cars, but over the years our philosophy has changed in response to customer demand.


We have been hiring out classic American cars since April 2006 when we added a Ford Mustang to our hire fleet. Following the launch of the then new Ford Mustang, with very retro styling, we started receiving requests from customers wanting to hire a classic Mustang.  So we added that most iconic American muscle car of all time - a 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Fastback to our fleet. We've since added a second one - a 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Convertible giving you the choice of Fastback v Convertible and manual v automatic.


Customer demand for more modern 'fun' sports cars led us to add a Caterham Super 7 to our Warwickshire fleet in 2010.  This is basically a roller skate with an engine and two seats - great fun in the dry.


Treat yourself to an unforgettable day out or a short break in one of the most beautiful parts of the country:  the beautiful Heart of Shakespeare Country, driving around Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire and the villages of The Cotswolds.


Our Warwickshire base is only minutes from Historic Warwick and Stratford upon Avon and 10 minutes drive from the northern edge of The Cotswolds.  For customers flying into the Midlands we are only a 30 minute drive from Birmingham Airport.  We are just 10 miles from that mecca for classic car enthusiasts, the recently re-furbished and extended British Motor Museum and Jaguar Collection at Gaydon and only 15 miles from the Coventry Transport Museum.


The Open Road provides personalised classic car hire gift vouchers and a number of gifts This is one of the Haynes Great Cars series - written by Nigel Thorley and published in 2001 to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the launch of the E-Type. or books to accompany the vouchers.  We produce the gift vouchers individually so we can make them out to say whatever our customers want.  Not only do we include the recipient's name and appropriate date but you can choose the wording.   So whether you want a 'Classic Jaguar Weekend', 'Classic Car Touring Holiday', or just to say 'Happy Christmas Dad', come up with your own wording and contact us. All our classic car hire gift vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date printed on them (not the date we supply the gift voucher).  


If you think an envelope containing a voucher won't make much of a present, then why not give him/her a book on their favourite classic car, with the gift voucher inside as a bookmark.


You can now order our gift vouchers online together with a full range of books and gifts with secure payment either by card or PayPal.
