Travel Around Europe By Car
The best way to visit Europe is to rent a car and traverse through the roads of Europe, the way you wish, without any bindings and experience the heart and soul of its diverse culture, history and natural beauty.
Touring the continent on a Jeep would enable you to visit small towns and villages and places of exotic natural beauty and unique local culture which you might not be able to get in any other mode of transportation.
If you have decided to see Europe by car then there are certain things that you must know about European car rentals, the traffic rules, Europe car insurance and lot more.
We at Europe Travel Guide provide all the information you need to know for arranging a European Self-drive holiday.
First be sure that you obtain International driving license from your country before departing for a European vacation.
Be sure that you understand fully the terms and condition before you rent a car. Also get a full instruction about the operation of the accessories of your rented vehicle.
This is important because foreign jeeps have controls that might be confusing for you.
Learn in details about European traffic rules and be familiar with the local road signs which might be quite different from your home country.
Otherwise you shall land up with a lot of legal troubles and ruin your vacation.
The basic rules for using toll roads have also to be kept in mind in great details. Study the exit signs, pay station layouts and methods to pay.
In some countries toll plazas do not accept credit cards and for this reason keep plenty of Euros in change.
Check that the jeep you have rented has proper European car insurance so that if any unfortunate events befall your car you won’t be in any financial crisis to compensate the costs of its repairs.
Be sure that you have the same insurance coverage level at all countries of Europe. If it is not so then ask the insurer for comprehensive car insurance that provides equal coverage in all European countries where you wish to travel.
Selecting a proper jeep for your vacation is also crucial. European Car rental agencies have various brands of cars at their disposal for you to choose from.
The thing that you should look for in the rented jeep more than anything else is its features. Before deciding over the features you must ask yourself the following questions:
How many passengers will you have in the car.
How much time will you be spending in the rental car? If you are going for a long road trip then a jeep with more space and extra comfort features would be best for you.
Do you need any extra items with the vehicle? It may be ski racks, child seats, GPS, snow tires/chains etc.
Each of the extra items added would cost you additional fees. So make a careful assessment of what you need so as to avoid additional charges over items that you would not need during the tour.
No doubt, self-driving Europe is the best option if you like adventurous vacationing. But it requires extensive planning and preparation.
We shall be providing more information from time to time so that you can enjoy self-drive in Europe that is worth remembering.
