Self-drive short breaks offer you the ultimate freedom to explore France and Belgium in your own time. Enjoy the scenery, experience the ambiance and have plenty of space to bring home all those well-deserved treats!
Whether it is chocolates and beer from Brugge, cuddly characters from Disneyland Resort, beautiful gifts from Paris or plenty of wine from Calais having your own car is a huge advantage.
Whether you have a sports car that you want to test out on the German Autobahn, a convertible that you feel needs a top up of sun or an estate car that can fit you, your family and everything that comes with it, travel by ferry offers one obvious advantage for driving holidays. But have you really thought about how much easier it makes your holiday in Europe?
While it is taken for granted that you are able to travel door to door with as little or as much luggage as you please, the comfort of having your own car on holiday counts for a great deal more. There is no need for a hire car with long queues and hefty deposits; instead you know the condition that your car is in, the precise details of your insurance cover and exactly how far you can go before you need to fill up with petrol! Similarly there is no need to be anywhere at a certain time to fit in with other peoples plans if you arrive at the port early, or late, your ticket can easily be transferred and you know that when you get to the other end you can just drive off and head for home. Drive where you like, when you like, the freedom is amazing!
