Frequently asked questions

If you have other questions or issues, please contact us.

  • How many people can I bring along with me in the car?

    There is no restriction on the number of people in the car. Just consider comfort and luggage space for the journey ahead. Admission to the rally is based on two people sharing a room, so four people can drive in one car but two rooms would be booked. If luggage space is going to be challenging you can book our premium luggage service.

  • What type of a car can I bring?

    Verve Rally has been designed for GT / Supercars, cars that stir the passion for driving and a touch exotic. Examples: Maserati GranTurismo, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Morgan Aero8, Bentley GTC, AMG GT or GTS, Aston Martin Vanquish / Rapide / Vantage and Porsche to name a few. Many participants bring their own car, whilst others (especially our international clientelle) utilise our GT / Supercar sourcing hire option. Take a look at the car hire options here.

  • Is there a maximum number of people who can attend the Verve Rally?

    Yes, each Verve Rally has up to 20 cars or 20 rooms, whichever is lesser. This keeps the group size at an optimum level for fun and interation, whilst also giving the greatest flexibility to select our choice of 4/5-star boutique hotels we seek in each location.

  • How can I book for the Rally?

    Simply apply here and one of our team will be in touch to arrange a 15-min phone call or face-to-face meeting to discuss your application.

  • Does my application need to be approved?

    At Verve, we believe that unique experiences require more than just planning and execution. They require a little extra care to ensure there’s a group of like-minded people sharing the same spirit of fun and adventure.

    Therefore we take the time to talk to and meet potential Ververs. We want to make sure that the Rally is a good fit for you and the rest of the group. To confirm the booking we will connect with you via phone, Skype, or face to face. Once approved a reservation deposit is required to secure your booking with the balance due at a set time prior to the rally start date. This will be discussed at your meeting.

  • What kind of people can I expect to meet?

    Business owners and professionals with a zest for life, and apprecation for travel, cars, art, and music to name a few. We attract distinguished yet down to earth individuals who are usually aged 30 and older. There’s a good mix of interesting people, from investors and corporate hotshots to newlyweds and business owners. A key characteristic of each Verve Rally is that it’s a non-pretentious adventure holiday, that’s quite simply a lot of fun.

  • Is this rally also for women?

    Yes. Absolutely. Verve is one of the few rallies in the world with a female cofounder. We positively embrace how the rally is a female friendly event and has been designed to cater for womens taste as much as mens. After all, we all share a similar passion for travel, luxury lifestyle, and cool cars.

      • What are the routes like?

        Each route is carefully planned with hand-selected roads, fuel stops and rest stops before parking up at stunning boutique hotels for the evening. A multi-pin GPS route will be provided each day. Put on your seatbelt, sit back and enjoy driving on some of the most inspiring and involving roads in the world. But we don't want to reveal all the secrets. A detailed daily itinerary and route map is provided each day at the breakfast briefing.

      • How much driving is there?

        The route has been tailored to blend adventure with relaxation. You’ll be driving an average of four hours a day (some days shorter and others a bit longer) and will usually arrive at the day's destination by late afternoon allowing for our lunch stop. Remember, this is a rally and you’ll be traversing 2000 miles across Western Europe.

      • What is the accommodation like?

        We handpick four and five-star hotels / chateaux brimming with character and great service. Most of these have spa facilities to relax and rejuvenate.

      • How is Verve Rally carbon neutral?

        Some people claim carbon neutrality by purchasing carbon credits. But we don’t believe that actually achieves anything. Verve goes further. Through a partnership with the PATT foundation, we will be planting the trees that balance the carbon footprint of the Verve Rally.
