Car Rentals…

There are plenty of rental companies to rent from in Europe including those you are familiar with from the US.  If you rent a car you will most likely be picking it up in one city and dropping it off in another. Many sites are closed on Sunday so this will be a problem picking up but not dropping off. Rental sites have drop boxes you can leave the keys in during closed hours of business. Check the times of operation on the web site when searching for a rental car. In some areas gas stations can be difficult to find open on Sundays, so have your car filled Saturday night if you plan to drop it off with a full tank of gas on Sunday

Car rentals may also be booked at OTA – Online Travel Agencies. Go to our ➾ Booking On Line page for a extended list of web sites that take rental car reservations.

Car Rental Companies

 You will find many of the same rental car companies in Europe that we have in the US.  

While rental rates are comparable to those in the US , gas is not…

Gas is sold in liters not gallons so remember 4 liters make 1.0567 gallons. Prices for regular gas in Europe this year are ranging from a low of €0,742 in Russia to a high of  €1,954 in Norway. By US comparison, thats about $4.02 to $13.35. per gallon respectively. Other Western European countries have higher prices because they lack oil production so as you travel east towards Russia the price of gas drops.. The average US price has been about $3.95.  Other countries averages so far in 2014 are (by US comparison)  France $8.16/ Germany $8.84/ Italy $9.68/UK $8.72/ per gallon. No wonder europeans prefer bikes, scooters and public transportation. You won’t see them driving big SUV’s or pickups.

Taxis…

Taxis / Rideshare

Taxi line in Munch, Germany

Taxis are another option while staying in large cities. In many situations taking public transportation from the airport will be more cost efficient and quicker. Airports are usually always a distance away for the city center and even if you’re sharing a cab with someone, you’ll be in traffic with a taxi. Even though transit lines make stops at stations along their route, they run on a regular schedule and are rarely delayed because of traffic. Most taxis do have flat rates from airports to certain areas within a city but, not when going point to point. Ask what their rate is from the airport into the city before taking a cab. 

You have probably heard about taxi scams so when entering a taxi always look for a fee meter that’s turn on. If it isn’t,  ask for the rate from the driver before taking the taxi. This is especially important when going point to point. Always count your change and give one Euro for a tip.

Ride Share in Europe…
Ride Share Controversy…

Uber is a company that connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services. Through a mobile app you can request a pick up for a ride from an individual who will use their own vehicle to transport you to your desired destination. Most drivers use upscaled vehicles like town cars to escort their riders. 

Recently this has meet with protests from the taxi industry in areas all around the world. They claim Uber’s services are not in compliance with local laws when accepting money from the public for transportation purposes. Most governments require taxis, chauffeurs, etc. to be licensed and comply with local regulations, especially on the rates they charge. There are also allegations that Uber’s are unsafe, not properly insured or regulated as taxis but, again allegations only. On the positive side there are many reviews from travelers on line that rate the service very high.

Uber is currently working with many local governments for clarification of regulations. Many governments have regulations that are not clear as to whether this type of service falls under current regulations or if they will create new standards for regulating them. This is all so new that it will most likely take some time to work itself out. However, please note, there are areas where services have been prohibited by local municipalities.

Car Pooling…

You can go to several web sites and find other people who are driving by car, to same same place you are. You can travel for for less money and get to meet and share the time with other people.

  2. Offer a ride to a passenger.
  3. Book and pay online.
  4. Plan to meet your fellow travel at a designated place, date and time.

Driving in Europe

As in America roads can lead you just about anywhere you want to travel in Europe. Driving will offer you a closer look into Europe’s culture and natural beauty. Visiting smaller towns and villages away from high tourists areas will offer you a different perspective of the European landscape. It is a great way to capture a part of Europe not visible in many larger cities.

Driving around the many peninsulas and inland bodies of water from one location to another will add additional miles and time to your trips but, it is the best way to see Europe close up.

The road infrastructure in most European countries is comparable to that is the states. You will find freeways and tolls for expressways, bridges & tunnels in some countries. Coastline roads can be narrow and mountain roads very windy that can be slow but, very scenic.

Driving in Europe…
Urban Driving…

Many streets and roads in European cities are centuries old. The oldest sections cities have morphed over the years into a complex of vary narrow streets, that can be hard to negotiate. High tourism brings many pedestrians and these areas may prohibit any vehicles. Traffic can be heavy and parking is a problem and costly. Large cities are no different from American cities with their heavy rush hour traffic that can bring the freeways and widest boulevards to a halt. The use of a car may not be your best option within metropolitan areas, as most destinations can easily be reach by the use of public transportation such as, subways, buses, light rail and even biking or walking.

Rural Driving…

Some rural destinations will lack regular train or bus service that can make a day trip out and back a bit more challenging. While there will be services they may not run frequently and if you miss that last train or bus back, you’ll be stuck in a town overnight. This is when you may want to consider renting a car giving you the flexibility to stop where you want to stop and leave when you want to leave. The rural landscapes of Europe can be just as enchanting as it’s cities. Quint old and medieval villages are plentiful and rich with their own history. The national and local parks that offer breathtaking natural scenery make it a great place to picnic. 
Be prepared to pay tolls on major highways in some countries. If you do not want to drive, you may also find day tours available from major cities listed in our tours page.
You may find automatic transmission cars limited as the majority of rental cars are manual. 

What documents you should have when driving in Europe?
  • Your current valid operator’s license with photo card ID
  • International Driving Permit (when necessary)
  • Vehicle registration document (V5c) 
  • Rental car agreement
  • Proof of Auto insurance
  • Passports
  • Travel insurance documents
  • You will need a visa for the countries that required one upon your arrival.
Vignette (Road Tax)…

Some countries require a vignette sticker in the window of a vehicle or the vehicle is monitored on roads electronically with video cameras. This is a form of road tax assessed for the use of motorways, expressways or all roads. There can be different rates for the size of vehicles and in some countries motorcycles are excluded from vignettes.

Whether you rent, buy or borrow a vehicle to drive, make sure it complies with the countries regulations within the country you plan to drive in. Failure to be in compliance with the laws could lead to an ugly fine. Make sure you inform your rental car provider which countries you plan to drive in and whether those countries require vignette registration.

What side of the road are you on?

You have all seen or know that when in England, as we say in American, “they’re driving on the wrong side of the road”. Well several other countries also use the left lane for traffic flow.

Countries that drive on the left side are; Cyprus, England, Guernsey, Jersey, Ireland, Isle of Man, Malta, Northern Ireland and Scotland.  That means when you rent a vehicle is those countries the driver and steering wheel will be on the right side of the car. You will shift with your left hand but, you will use your right foot on the accelerator and the left foot on your clutch and broke pedals. So if your not comfortable attempting to drive in this fashion, we suggest using public transportation. All other countries use the right side for traffic flow.

Reading European Road Signs…

You will find driving in Europe rather east. In 1968 moat countries agreed to standardized traffic regulations and road signage. Almost all road signs have been coordinated to be similar in appearance.

Parking

Europe has an intercontinental highway system similar the US interstate highway system. These highways are almost always expressways that create unhindered traffic flow. They have wide lanes, on and off ramps to enter or exit from, railroad intersections that cross at a different level, they by passes heavy congested areas, curves and gradients designed to handle speeds 80- 100km.These highways are identified with a numbering system for A class and B class roads. Roads that are A class start with an “E” as it prefix followed by two digit numbers (example Highway E43). B class roads are labeled the same,  except with three digit numbers (example E249). Odd numbered highways run north-south with the lowest number, E1 farthest west. Even numbered highways run East-West with the lowest numbered highway E5, being farthest north.

Other highways are supervised, nationally or locally and can be numbered with a starting prefix’s such as  A, M, R flowed by digits or just a numeric number. Some of these highways can be narrower roads with intersections or roundabouts and will run through the middle of cities or villages. They may also be numbered with the European highway id. Highway 6 in Germany is also European highway E50.

Toll Roads…

Some countries in Europe do have toll roads so always keep extra change when driving. Share your intended route with your rental car company when picking up your vehicle. They will be able to tell you if you will encounter any tolls and how many. They will also tell you whether toll passes need to be purchased prior to driving.
