Road Travel Tips in the EU
best way to drive around europe
Travelling around Europe, whether for business or for pleasure is always great. The beautiful roads, the amazing scenery, the experience is always excellent. Whether this is your first time or you are a regular visitor to the EU, there are certain things that you should always remember when you travel. Here are a few top tips for travelling in the EU.Firstly, whatever your situation (whether new to the EU or not) you should ensure that you are fully up to date with the travel laws for the country. The UK Government website has in-depth guides to individual countries, and reading these before you travel anywhere is a must. Most EU countries not only have their own laws around driving (including speed limits) but they also have requirements around what you must have within your car. For example, in Portugal, many toll roads are actually pre-payment toll roads and so you should plan your journeys well in advance when visiting them.Secondly, you should ensure that you have your insurance up to date. Double check your traditional car insurance to see what that covers and make sure that you take out travel insurance for your trip. Without travel insurance you may be facing a costly breakdown and recovery should your car break down during your journey.Thirdly, you could consider hiring a car when you travel. A recent survey revealed that only 11% of people take their own car when they travel to Europe. It can be useful to hire a car, giving drivers extra space to take luggage and bring along friends or family for holidays. Rental companies such as provide a huge range of different cars that you can rent, and they also provide a great, detailed guide on travelling around the EU. It includes some useful tips including VAT and consumption tax advice.Fourthly, you should remember that laws covering drinking and driving, as well as seatbelts are much more serious in the wider EU than they are in the UK. Drivers should ensure that their seatbelts are on at all times and that you have not had a single drink. The penalties are far more severe in European countries than they are in the UK and should be observed at all times.
