Self Drive Holidays

Why should I choose a self drive holiday?

Self drive holidays are ideal if you want to discover new places at your own pace, from the comfort and convenience of your own car. No more waiting for other people to catch up, or the need to stick to a fixed route. When traveling to Europe, self drive holidays are perfect. Imagine, roof down driving through the picturesque countryside with the gentle breeze cooling you down.

We created our self drive holidays in Europe, because we felt you should be given the opportunity to immerse yourself like a local. Picture yourself visiting ancient villages, while taking in the rustic terrain, as you drive from one destination to another. We have put together two itineraries one set on the gorgeous Greek island of Crete, and the other in beautiful Cyprus – the island of year round sun and golden beaches.

If you’d like to know more about our self drive holidays please get in touch with our Trusted Advisers, who can customise your itinerary and answer any queries you may have.

I always recommend visiting Dubai on the way back from the Maldives rather than the way out – it’s such a haven for shopping, and Emirates offers a generous baggage allowance of 30kg in economy (which you can split into as many bags as you want). This is especially important if you are taking a seaplane transfer in the Maldives, as they have a smaller baggage allowance so you won’t be able to bring much with you. Do your shopping on the way back!

Multi-centre holidays are a great way to experience the different sides of a country. Thinking of visiting Thailand? Try combining the city of Bangkok with a relaxing beach break in Phuket – we can help you work out all the details.
