Our Director, John Donovan, has over 30 years’ experience in the rental business and is committed to providing a unique opportunity for those who are unlikely to own a sports or luxury car back home, the experience of one for a day or longer. John claims that “whilst most people rent a car as a basic means of transport from point to point, Overdrive has added a different dimension, energy and fun to our overall business. It’s great to see enjoyment on our customers faces which leads to invaluable satisfaction for all concerned. For those indulging in some of the finest world class establishments, a sports or luxury car from Overdrive Car Hire completes the package. After all, you can have a lot of fun just getting there”
