Why Road Trips?

A road trip is a fantastic way of exploring an area of the world. The journey itself is as important as the final destinations and is a great way to see into a country's heart. From towering mountain passes and glacial valleys of the Alps to the dramatically beautiful coastal roads of California and Croatia, there's challenging and exciting driving ahead. The great rivers like the Danube and Rhine combine incredible views with centuries of history whilst a trip across the vast open plains and deserts of North America or Australia will let you experience a part of the world very few others ever will.

Road trips mean you go where you want when you want and you are not tied to any fixed itinery given to you by your travel agent. Staying off the beaten track in more remote villages and towns gives you a much greater feel for the true heart and soul of a country and allows you to see a different place every day.
