In the modern age consumers are far more interested in the theme of the obscure, with wacky clothes, hairstyles and cars now being incredibly sought-after. At Anythingforhire.com we have witnessed this emerging trend, seeing people’s requests getting more and more outlandish as the years go on. From hiring exclusive chauffeur cars for your average school prom to renting a helicopter for an hour to get to your wedding venue, it does appear that the vehicle hire market may be getting slightly out of hand.

According to Liam of executive car hire firm Regency.co.uk it is the younger generation that is arguably feeding such trends.

‘Having been in business for over a decade we have clearly seen a change in taste, with the traditional Lincoln Towncar limousine now being replaced by the Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the world’.

‘Where cars of this nature were once reserved for very high-end people travelling to prolific  engagements things have changed. These cars now being used for birthdays, proms, hen parties, business affairs and much more!’.

Chauffeur cars

Chauffeur cars fleets throughout the UK are very much changing shape according to UK firm VIP Travel, being forced to alter their convoy to accommodate the modern market.

‘We used to get enquiry after enquiry for Mercedes and stretched limos, both being popular choices for a wealth of events. Now we have added party buses, top-end Rolls Royce chauffeur cars and supercars to our fleet, as per our customer requests’.

Bespoke vehicles

The personal touch is also something that the vehicle rental market has now embraced, with many companies creating their own bespoke-made vehicles to entice the modern traveller. The greatest example of this is the Starline Limo Bus, a professionally-stretched Mercedes Sprinter adorned with the most incredible tech-driven features. Inside the vehicles passengers can enjoy use of the following:

  • 16 luxury leather centre-facing seats
  • Free Wi-Fi access
  • Flatscreen televisions
  • Surround sound
  • Karaoke machines
  • Disco lighting
  • And much more.
