Tips For Driving In Europe

Driving is the best way to explore any city and if comes to Europe then you need to be aware of some driving tips. It has many benefits including the freedom to go to any place at any point of time. You also get a good experience of driving in a foreign land. So, let’s learn how to navigate the traffic rules and drive safely on the right-hand side.

Tips To Keep In Mind When Driving In Europe

  1. Decide which car you want to drive: Manual or Automatic. Choose a small car with a manual transmission, although some people are comfortable driving with the automatic transmissions.
  2. Service stations can be in short supply in remote areas, so keeping the tank full should be your topmost priority with the right type of fuel. Putting gasoline in a car that takes diesel can potentially ruin the engine of the car.
  3. It is always advisable to use the handy route planner and if you are unable to understand the road signs along the way, you will definitely have difficulty reaching your destination.
  4. There are some places in Europe where you can’t drive a rental car.
  5. On collection of your rental car, present a full license from your home country. In most European countries, the legal driving age is 18, however most rental companies do not rent vehicles to drivers aged under 21.
  6. The foremost expense for your Europe trip will be the cost of hiring the car. Once you’ve decided the size of vehicle that is going to suit your tour, it’s time to work out your road trip costs. 
  7. Speed limits in many European countries can be confusing, according to the weather, your vehicle and the type of road you’re on.
  8. Road tunnels can be unexpectedly long in Europe and as a result, even skilled drivers can find them a bit outlandish. 
  9. It is generally not a hassle to cross a border into another country, apart from some exceptions. It's important to have all the important documents in hand including passports for everyone in the vehicle, auto rental contract and insurance. Border Officials have the right to look in the car as well as the trunk.
  10. Preparation is the key when it comes to traveling abroad and driving in Europe. You want to be all set to deal with unfavorable situations in the safest and most competent way possible, so you are able to get back on the road and continue having the benefit of your trip! 


The way you drive at home may be different from the culture of the region you are planning on visiting, but the basic rules remain the same. It will also be in your best interest to take Europe travel insurance before starting your trip. Travel insurance will give you peace of mind and help you feel more relaxed.

When driving around Europe, don’t forget to explore the amazing nightlife.
