Are you planning to drive in Europe on holiday? Are you planning to go on holiday by car, motorhome, caravan or even motorbike? This page brings together tips and information to help you learn more about everything from driving rules to what to look out for and how to find campsites and overnight pitches.
Bila in Europe
Travelling by car is a great way to discover Europe: you are free to travel wherever you want and can change your route along the way. Many people think there's a lot to think about when driving in Europe, but it's actually relatively simple.
You need to think about a few things, such as taking your passport, driving licence and car registration certificate, as well as checking insurance and perhaps ordering Roadside Assistance. It helps to have a GPS and a road atlas, and it is also good to have access to a book, such as Motormännens "Discover Europe by car" or a website where you can check the traffic rules in different countries.
Travelling in Europe with a motorhome
An even more amazing way to travel, in our opinion, is by motorhome. As well as being able to drive wherever you like, you always have a bedroom and kitchen with you. At night you can choose whether you want to stay and sleep at a campsite, at a simple 'pitch' or if you want to free camp. We spent a whole year travelling in Europe with a motorhome in 2015, and here are some articles about travelling on a long trip with a motorhome.
By motorhome in different countries
In Europe, you can travel by motorhome almost everywhere, but there are of course different things to consider in different countries. In addition, if you have a heavy motorhome (over 3.5 tonnes), you need to check which countries require extra payment and how this works in that particular country.
Campsites and pitches
When travelling with a motorhome, caravan or car and tent, it's good to know where to find pitches and campsites. There are plenty of apps, websites and catalogues where you can find places to stay.
