|Basic information for your tour
|We would like to give you some useful hints and information
how you can create your best driving tour with our
|1. First of all plan not too much!
This is the biggest mistake which you can do. You should know that you'll find in whole Europe many scenic roads through the countryside.
Many roads have a special background and offers unique experiences as well as a marvelous countryside. When you take such a drive you can
only calculate appr. 40 to 50km per hour driving time. For example if you choose the drive via the "Romantik Road" from
Rothenburg to Fuessen, its appr. 250km or 160miles but you need at least 5 1/2 hour driving time without any stops. Another example is
the drive from Grenoble to Nice via the "Route Napoleon" which is 350km or 220miles only but you need at least 7 hours driving
time. Driving through Tuscany's countryside (Italy) takes a lot of time and you can calculate in average only 30 to 40km per hour. You
see - less is much more!
|2. Route Planner!
Your personal Route
Planner helps you planning your tour. Please note that in Europe you find often some cities or villages in different regions with
the same name. You can distinguish them with their postal codes. You can view maps with your route and you can zoom in so that you can
see details. Note that all distances are show in "kilometer".
|3. Car Rental information!
We offer only the best car rental companies in Europe and we show the bestpriced car groups on top and the most expensive ones at the
bottom. Please note that driving into the Eastern European states isn't allowed and if you want to drive into Czech Republic or Hungary
for example then you should send us your tour request with the Customized Tour
Request form. We can offer some car rental companies which allow the lower car groups (Ford or Opel cars only) going east but they
have higher rates.
In general no luxury car group is allowed to travel into Italy. You can't book a tour with a Mercedes, Audi or BMW or the luxury
VW'S into Italy from all European countries.
If you want to travel with an automatic car, please note that these cars are more
expensive in Europe then manual cars and that they are booked out early in advance. Also minivans and minibusses are strongly requested
and has to be booked very early!
|4. Hotel information!
You'll find more then 6.000 selected hotels in our database, mostly 3 to 4 star hotels with very special negotiated rates and a
good quality. Some two star hotels which we can recommend are included as well as romantic, charming and special hotels which offers a
In general the best priced hotels are listed on the top the most expensive ones on the bottom. You'll find the country classification

We have received the Tour Handbook, thank you very much.
I must compliment you with everything, right from the first
contact through to the handbook. You always made us feel
as if you are spending all your time on us, that we are not
just one of your many customers, and the handbook was the
final cherry on top. It is personalised, it has got much
more detail than we ever expected, the cross-references in
the text to the voucher numbers rounds it off nicely, the
pamphlets and ... and ... and ... ; it is just fantastic!
Thank you once again for a very professional service, you
are making us look forward to our trip even more.
