Now then.. when Karen and I go on our extensive ‘research trips’ abroad, checking local cuisine, sampling wines, tracking down ingredients at local markets, buying exotic salt supplies – – we need a hire car – and we are as fussy about hire cars (there are too many dodgy deals out there!) as we are concerned to get food just right for you at your wedding.
So, when we go abroad, we always go straight to our friend Phil Partridge at Rhino Car Hire. Phil discovered what we do for a living and he OFFERED our clients up to 10% discount on car hire – not just for you and all your guests for the pre- and post- wedding travels but for your honeymoon too – that’s a discount on any car rental from over 40,000 locations worldwide… I know – we could hardly believe it either.
All you have to do is call Phil (with your Kemp & Kemp wedding number handy) on 0845 508 9845, or e-mail him on email@example.com, and he will whizz back to you almost as fast as we whizz back to you!
