It is not only automobile manufacturers who benefit, the cult object; “car” has been used more and more in the incentive sector as a real treat in the last ten years: from simple guest shuttles in luxury limousines to off-road safaris, from driver training courses to motorsport involvement, there are no lack of opportunities for “car events”.
One of the reasons why the car topic in the field of incentives quickly became a popular means of increasing employee motivation is the required basic qualification: most people have a driver's license and can drive a car. Sailing incentives or golf tournaments have a much smaller population in the incentive area and like to pack this starting disadvantage in exclusivity - such incentives are attractive for participants who indulge in these sports anyway, but disadvantageous for non-experts. But that is exactly what is counterproductive with an incentive: How should motivation be conveyed when you are clearly not in the same boat?
Such an experience with automobiles smooths the way to team building and customer loyalty, ultimately creating a successful incentive. The more the participants are activated, the more effective the incentive. What could be better for activation than driving a car in its most original form, for two in an open sports car, if possible a vintage car? Classic car incentives trigger a multitude of emotions, something that is true not just for those who love classic cars. The topic itself is undisputedly exclusive and underlines the good style of the inviting person. A classic car incentive is not a half-day trip with a colorful heap of old metal, but a stylish weekend with freedom: time for the guests to feel the wind in their hair on the steering wheel of chrome-flashing vintage cars; time to find your own way through seductively beautiful landscapes; time to enter into a neat conversation with another guest; and time to choose your personal favorite from a number of comparably attractive classic cars from the same brand.
The opportunity to drive a classic car yourself is rare and ensures that the invitation to such an incentive is gladly accepted. A classic car incentive has nothing to do with the stressful everyday driving. It conveys a feeling of freedom and subtly allows personal relationships to be created among your staff or incentive targets. That is what the inviting companies want. In addition, the incentive creates active team building through joint briefings and trips, the gleaming chrome fleet is also perceived from the outside as a unit - just think of the looks of other guests when they start from the hotel and see the encouragement on the way to their destinations from onlookers along roadside. No question about it, vintage car incentives are the instrument for employee motivation and customer loyalty.
The recipe for an unforgettable classic car incentive is called Nostalgic. Up to 35 Alfa Romeo oldtimers from our own fleet - the world's largest fleet of classic Alfa Romeos from the 1950s and 1960s - can be booked for individual oldtimer incentives in Italy. For vintage incentives in Germany, Nostalgic has an equally attractive fleet of 15 VW Beetle convertibles. As part of the new "Classic Car Travel" offer, ten Mercedes-Benz SLs (W 113 and R 107) are also at the start. Nostalgic was the first to establish oldtimer incentives with its own fleet as a top incentive. 18 years of experience and hundreds of successful events for well-known corporate customers do not only speak in favor of Nostalgic, but above-all the speak of the high quality of the classic cars. It was not for nothing that Daimler AG chose Nostalgic as a partner for the new edition of classic car tours with Mercedes-Benz roadsters.
With a Nostalgic Incentive, team building, motivation and customer loyalty take place in an exclusive setting. It's about emotions and personal closeness, as Founders and Managing Directors Gert Pichler and Walter Laimer explain. The two childhood friends from Merano are a classic success story for entrepreneurial flair and the courage to set up their own company. The charming South Tyroleans, as they smile and unanimously announce, have not turned their passion into a profession, but their whole passion is their company Nostalgic. For every customer, this means that they are made a top priority: from advice to the implementation of a classic car incentive.
The experts at Nostalgic not only have gasoline in their blood and a passion for classic cars, they also have the right feel for what classic car incentives are made of: attractive destinations such as Tuscany and Lake Maggiore, the Côte d'Azur and Sicily, Berchtesgaden and the Bavarian Lakes. All of this garnished with detailed, low-traffic panoramic routes, exquisite hotels and restaurants, personal service from dedicated tour guides and much more. Start your individual incentive here.
