    It's my old man's 60th soon and I'm thinking of renting him a car for a weekend trip, can anyone recommend anywhere to hire from? (south east England)

    Free drop-off /pickup would be a bonus.

    PS. Thread title meant to say jag (I'm thinking an XF or XKR-S) but I have fat fingers

    How much does renting this sort of vehicle for an older gentleman cost? My dad would love this, he's always drooling over the new F type in a customers garage.

    Found AVIS Prestige and did a quick quote and it came out to nearly £900 as a minimum on an F-Type.

    Not sure what you're expecting price wise, it's generally very expensive to get a car like that for extended periods with silly excesses to go with it.

    Could try contacting a dealer and see how friendly they are.

    Judging by the fact my dad is near 60. He would love to have a drive of a Morgan. You can hire for a day or even more I think.

    Bespokes is another classic car hire place. Looking at £1000+ for a weekend in an Aston. Can't remember whether they had Jags.

    Try Sturgess Jaguar in Leicester. They rent them out and customer service is second to none.
