Find the Continent on an Amazing Road Trip

It’s no secret that one of the best ways to travel – and to see more – is by taking a road trip. Travelling in a car means you can go at your own pace, stop where you want, and choose your own route. It also offers utmost flexibility in travel and is a particularly advantageous means of travel for families for this very reason. So, it’s no wonder more and more people are choosing to take road trips rather than to hop on a plane.

There are, of course, countless options in terms of road trip destinations. You can, for example, drive solely within the UK, or instead choose to drive to – and within – another country. But if you’re looking for a truly adventurous, wide-encompassing trip, why not consider a road trip throughout the European continent?

There are many popular routes for road trips within the EU. But before you choose your route, you’ll want to have an idea of how long you want your trip to last. You’ll also want to decide whether you want to see more places – but spend less time in each place – or, if you’d rather see fewer places but spend a bit more time in each place. Once you decide on these aspects of your trip, you can more effectively choose a route.

If you don’t have loads of time for your road trip, you might want to choose a single region – or a few countries – to explore. For instance, if you really enjoy Mediterranean culture, why not drive down to Spain, then up through France, and down through Italy? Or, if you’ve always wanted to discover the Nordic region, you can start off your trip in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany, then head up to Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

However, if you’d like to make your road trip a long-haul holiday, you can start off in Portugal or Spain and make your way east. It might also be a good idea to plan for a ‘horse-shoe’ route – meaning you can perhaps start off in France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland, then ‘horse-shoe’ around on your way back to see some of the countries in the southern region – such as Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Italy.

Of course, if you’re planning a big road trip throughout the European continent, you’ll want to ensure you have appropriate car insurance for your travels. Many insurers offer European car insurance, covering you for travel throughout EU countries for a specified amount of time – for example, 180 days. So, you wouldn’t have to worry about securing specialised insurance cover for specific countries you plan to drive through. European car insurance is specialised in itself, covering you throughout your entire road trip within the European continent.

However, it’s important to remember that even European car insurance has its levels of cover. You can get a basic policy, which covers the minimum compulsory requirements of car insurance in the European Union. However, a basic policy might not always cover loss or damage to your car, or the level of third party liability may not be as great in the UK.

Therefore, it’s important to go over a range of policies before committing to one, ensuring your final choice covers for everything you require for your European road trip. You can often purchase a basic car insurance policy and then extend your cover to give you full benefits for road travel throughout the EU.
