Luxury car rental company unveils Mercedes’ ‘Land Jet’ for up to 7 people

A luxury car rental company has unveiled its newest addition – a seven-seater Mercedes-Benz Land Jet.

The vehicle which comes with two TVs, leather seats and a state-of-the-art music system is said to be in high demand following the easing of Covid restrictions and the start of the wedding and prom season.

Brand new, the vehicle is said to cost over £180,000 and is the only one available for hire in the area.

Aroon, who runs Blackburn-based One Stop Vehicle Solutions (SVS), said the vehicle had already been booked several times since its acquisition, including by a rising star from Blackburn Rovers.

He said: ‘It’s one of the most popular choices for birthdays and parties because you can fit seven people in the vehicle.

“It’s six in the back and one sitting next to the driver if need be.”

Aroon said the team recently signed Rovers star Tyrhys Dolan (above).

“It’s a bit different from some of the other cars we have because you can fit more people inside,” he continued.

“It’s a common problem that we sometimes have on some of the other cars where people always have to split the group.

“It’s perfect for hen parties and bachelor parties as passengers are seated facing each other so the party continues as soon as we pick you up!”

Aroon said post-Covid the hospitality industry was increasingly looking for ways to get people back to normal.

He added, “It has been a difficult time for the industry due to all the restrictions and people have to be very careful with the functions.

“Over the past two months things have changed dramatically and many people who had postponed celebrations until things return to normal are now looking to organize these events.

“It’s still not easy for industry players, but hopefully 2022 can be different.”
