Ever Fancied Hiring a Police Car?!

Written by

The Swiss have clearly had enough of thieves! So much so that frequent travellers who often leave their homes vacant can now hire a replica police car and park it outside their property! This quirky theft deterrent is said to cost the renter around £150 per week and so far they seem to have proved popular:

"They're very popular with people who travel a lot or who are going away on holiday," explained owner Andreas Birrer. "We park them on customers' driveways or outsides their homes and they are very effective deterrents. It started as a bit of a gimmick but it really took off".
The police on the other hand are a little more sceptical as to how effective the dummy police car are, particularly for those who leave their properties empty for weeks at a time:


Police spokesmen Urs Wigger said: "The question is whether it really does stop thieves. Especially if they see it is parked for weeks on a driveway and it never moves."

Although we can't guarantee your rent-a cop car will deter thieves, we at iCarhireinsurance are here to ensure that if your rental vehicle is stolen you are not held to ransom by the rental company over expensive excess fees

Britain's Best Towers

Written by

Historically, a great Global Power could exert their status by showing the rest of the world that the skies were the limit in terms of what they could achieve...quite literally! Throughout the last few Centuries the wealthiest countries have been locked in a race to the heavens and in the process have built some colossal, and on occasion hideous, towers which threaten to split both public opinion and the o-zone layer!

Land's End marks the northern tip of Britain, Hadrian's Wall is in Cornwall and the Jurassic Coast is to be found in Scotland were some of the answers in a recent survey of British people!
