Driving in Europe is very different from driving in the USA or Australia, not least because the roads are a lot smaller.
A road trip through Europe is one of the best ways to take a holiday, so here are some things you can expect to find when driving in Europe:
No Speed Limits
While most of Europe is strict on speed limits, in Germany the Autobahn is a road with no speed limit. This means that you can drive as fast as you like and you are more likely to get a ticket for obstructing the flow of traffic than for speeding. You will need to be aware of the ‘maximum’ limits though, because above this speed you will no longer be insured.
There is no one-fit rule for driving in Europe and the most pronounced difference is the change in the side of the road they drive on. France and England drive on opposite sides of the road, so be sure to be aware of rule changes when crossing borders.
When you are used to multi-lane roads in Australia or America you will find the roads in Europe very uncomfortable at first. The roads will feel too small even on the motorway, but you need to get over this because the country roads along the cost of the UK and throughout Europe are some of the best in the world to drive.
