Driving Holiday in Europe

We then combine these trips with one of our latest generation performance, and supercars to create your Ultimate Drive. 

Step 1, choose your destination

Whether you are a wine buff, a historian, a romantic, or just want to enjoy hardcore driving roads, there is a driving tour to suit your style. Choose from the high mountain passes, waterfalls and glaciers of the Alps, the panoramic vistas and hilltop towns of Tuscany, or the vineyards and rolling hills of Provence.  Each of our driving holidays takes you on a journey of discovery through the best parts of Europe, picking out the most scenic roads, incredible natural sights, and great dining options along the way.

Step 2, select yourself a car

When it comes to the cars we have you covered, with the very latest fleet of luxury and performance cars.  Choose from our range of sports cars, with models such as the sporty 718 Porsche Boxster or the recently re-launched M4.  Take a step up to our performance cars, and you can choose from models such as the Mercedes AMG GT Roadster or the Audi R8 Spider.  For the ultimate indulgence or bucket list trip, we have the latest fleet of supercars, including the new Ferrari F8 Spider, Lamborghini Evo, or the race bread GT3 RS. Luxury saloons and SUVs are also available if you want to travel with space and style.

For our complete list of cars, which you can easily link to available tours, head across to our Luxury Car Hire page. 

If you prefer to Tour in Your Car then we have several packages specially designed, and priced without a car included.

Step 3, arrive at the start

All our tours start with a meet and greet in some of the most beautiful cities across Europe. If you are heading for the Alps, choose between Geneva, Zurich, or Munich as a start point.  If you want to tour around Tuscany, the romantic city of Florence will be where you begin.  If it's the sunny South of France and Provence you are touring, then head to the jet-set resort of Cannes, directly on the Cote d'Azur.  On arrival, check into your hotel, where your welcome pack and roadbook will be waiting.

Step 4, start your journey

After an evening in the city, the following morning, your car will be delivered directly to the hotel, and you will receive a full briefing and walk-through from one of our team, covering both the car and the scenic driving tour you are about to set out on.  The entire drive is outlined in a detailed roadbook, and the route itself (including all stops for sights, coffees, and lunches along the way) is pre-programmed into your GPS to ensure a trouble-free drive.

The Roads and sights

It's now time to hit the road in style.  Each region naturally picks out different scenic routes, and these are programmed into your GPS, ensuring simple turn-by-turn navigation, not only along the roads but also picking out stops for sights, coffees, and lunch along the way.  A well-researched drive will ensure you stay away from the busy A roads, and spend your time enjoying the scenic back roads, with scenic stop points along the way.

Handpicked hotels on the way

As much as we love our roads, we know that a great vacation is also about the hotels you stay at along the way.  Having run these tours for the last 10 years, we know a thing or two about hotels.  That means we ensure you are not only will you stay in a great location, both in terms of the flows of the tour and the sights but also these are hand-picked, luxury boutique options, offering you a genuinely authentic experience n the county you are visiting - serving natural local foods and offering special pampering touches to allow you to relax and chill out after each drive.
