LOCATION - Where does Harry hang out?
Harry lives in his luxury pad underneath Hyde Park. Our meeting point is the cafe at Speakers Corner, near Marble Arch in the heart of London. This is the best spot in town to begin your amazing adventure. The meeting point can only be accessed by foot. If you are coming by car, we recommend parking at QPark Park Lane, our preferred parking partner. We are pleased to be able to offer you a 15% discount on pre-bookings with QPark.

ROUTE - What are the best routes and who picks where we go?
We know all the best routes and we’ll help you tailor the perfect one! In London we recommend heading up to Regent’s Park (on the 60 and 90 minute rides) – the traffic free outer ring road is the perfect spot in the city to get to grips with this incredible machine. On our dream-come-true Country Rides we have carefully selected quiet, gorgeous country roads with swooping bends where the Maserati really comes into its own. If you have a specific route in mind, just let us know and we’ll do our very best to accommodate it.
SPEED - Can I break the speed barrier in the car?
We will be driving on public roads and so will be limited to the advertised speed limits along the route! The good news is that the real thrill of driving a luxury grand tourer such as the Maserati GranCabrio comes mostly from experiencing its acceleration and addictive engine sound rather than reaching high speeds. This can be enjoyed on all of our rides but more so on the Country Rides of course.
GUIDE - Why does a smelly guide need to come with us in the car?
Jamie, your guide, is not smelly! He left his job to set up GT Rush and share the thrill of driving a sportscar with the world. He is friendly and knowledgeable (and clean!) and will do everything in his power to ensure you have nothing short of an amazing time to remember.
PASSENGERS - Are my guests expected to wait around while I'm having all the fun?
That would just be mean! The Maserati has two comfortable rear seats and we encourage you to invite your guests along to join in as passengers – they’ll enjoy it just as much as you (and they’ll be there to capture the whole thing on camera while you drive). Passengers must be 14 years of age or older.
TOUR - What if I don't want to drive?
If you would rather make yourself comfortable in one of the Maserati’s luxurious passenger seats and enjoy that special feeling of being driven around London’s iconic sites or the beautiful English countryside in style, we’re happy to drive for you! When making your booking, just leave us a note saying you won’t be driving.
VOUCHERS - How can I purchase an open voucher for a special someone?
If you would like to share the amazing GT Rush experience with a special someone but you’re not sure when they will be able to drive, you can purchase any one of our rides as an open voucher. You will then receive the gift voucher via email with your personalised message to give to your special someone. All our vouchers are valid for 12 months. Click here to pick your perfect gift.
LICENCE - Do I really need a licence to drive?
We’re afraid so! We accept full UK licences only. If you hold a licence from overseas and you have prior experience driving in London and/or are used to driving on the left side of the road in your own country, please do get in touch – we will assess your circumstances and you might just be able to drive 🙂
INSURANCE - If I crash the car will I have to sell my house to pay for the damage?
We’ve got you covered! All our experiences are inclusive of full insurance in the unlikely event of accidental damage. You are only liable if you cause an accident due to wreckless driving, gross negligence or you have broken the law.
RESTRICTIONS - Do I have to be a certain age or shape to drive?
We cherish diversity! Our only hard restriction is drivers must be 21 years or older. We recommend drivers be 65 years or less, be between 5ft and 6ft3 in height, and weigh less than 18 stone. This is for your own comfort and safety. If you fall outside of our recommendations but feel you will be comfortable driving, please get in touch.
BESPOKE - What if I want to do my own thing?
Our only requirement is that your guide must be with you in the car at all times. If you wish to be picked up from / dropped off at a different location, you have a special request or you need Harry for a special event, please get in touch and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your wishes.
WEDDINGS - Can Harry be part of my special day?
Harry loves a wedding! Check out our wedding page.
CANCELLATION - What if I can't make it?
If you have purchased a ride or gift voucher and you wish to cancel, you can do so within 14 days of purchase as long as the ride is not scheduled to take place within this period and/or as long as the gift voucher has not been redeemed. In this case you will receive a full refund within 14 days less an administrative charge of 5%. After 14 days since purchase, it is no longer possible to cancel, however you can reschedule your ride if you give us at least 48 hours’ notice via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
