The future of the test drive? Alfa Romeo joins forces with i-escape to give Brits a five star stay with a five star Stelvio delivered to their front door
Alfa Romeo is joining up with boutique travel company, i-escape, to deliver British staycationers with a 5* getaway this autumn – luxury accommodation with the added bonus of a 5* SUV delivered to their front door for free.
With millions of holidaymakers already booking summer trips and fewer places to stay due to increased demand, Brits up and down the country are now turning their attention to an autumn staycation.
From today, at least five lucky guests will be surprised with an ‘Added Alfa’ package if they book a stay at a select number of properties.
The offer will see consumers enjoy one of i-escape’s boutique self-catered accommodations, available during the October half term (15th October – 1st November).
In addition, i-escape will get in touch with at least five lucky families to upgrade their staycation to include an Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV delivered directly to their door, for free, the day before their trip – an offer that will be sure to add another level of luxury to their holiday.
The featured properties are situated across the UK and will be suitable for a variety of wants and needs, whether guests are after a luxury barn conversion for a family getaway or a cosy cottage for a couples retreat.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio will be included with properties including The Shipton Hideaways; two stunningly renovated Cotswold cottages which marry ancient architecture with contemporary furnishings and Stow House; a laid-back B&B with bold design, kooky art and sweeping views over the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the perfect addition to this year’s UK staycations with its 5* NCAP rating, cavernous boot space, striking Italian style and a whole host of onboard connectivity to help navigate around the unexplored parts of the UK.
“With restrictions on international travel likely to remain in some part for the rest of 2021, it’s no surprise that the majority of the UK are planning on staying a bit closer to home, so we wanted to do something that elevates their holiday to the next level and add another layer of luxury,” said Damien Dally, FCA UK Country Manager for Alfa Romeo.
“For the millions of holidaymakers who have gone abroad in the past and wanted to splash out on a luxury car to hire, now is their chance to travel in style and safety in our five star Euro NCAP rated Alfa Romeo Stelvio.”
Sam Betts, Head of Marketing at i-escape, adds: “2021 has seen a huge increase in staycations, and we believe there are some truly exceptional and spectacular places within these shores for discerning travellers to discover.
“We want to champion all the different kinds of holiday that the UK has to offer, and to show that booking a staycation this year doesn’t mean compromising on your holiday experience.
“Throughout lockdown we’ve been tracking down the best hotels and cottages for when we can finally travel again, and now we’re super excited to share them with you. We think these places are so special that, even if the weather remains resolutely British, you’ll have a totally indulgent break and a wonderful change of scenery.”
