The Ultimate Road Trip

With the freedom of the open-road ahead, self-drive holidays offer a flexible way to explore a country, always at your own pace. National Parks, historic cities, amazing wildlife and hidden treasures have never looked so appealing.

Explore dramatic landscapes at your leisure, from scenic Californian coast-lines to the rugged jewels of the Canadian Rockies.  Or perhaps a stunning drive along Australia’s Great Ocean Road on the south-west coast of Victoria, a dramatic 249-mile journey with surprises and delights at every turn.  It’s even possible to drive from just about the top of New Zealand to the bottom – both islands – which includes an unforgettable trip through Marlborough, the world-renowned wine-growing region, and a three-hour ferry between North and South Island, an iconic ferry crossing.

Our key partner, award-winning First Class Holidays, has produced an exciting range of expertly planned itineraries.  Wide open blacktops on generally excellent road networks, no excessive driving – we remember that you also want to do plenty of sight-seeing – and professional support if required.  You control the pace of your road trip – you decide where to stop, when to stop and how long to stop for.  You can also explore off the beaten track, delighting in the ever-changing scenery with the window down and music playing.  Looser self-drive options are available, offering even greater freedom and independence.

Let our experts recommend the most exhilarating self-drive itineraries, that take care of everything.  From the moment you pick your car up from the airport to the best sights, places to stop, accommodation and flights.  Our partners will make sure that your arrangements all run like clockwork.  Whether you’re looking forward to the wind in your hair as you drive along the coastal ‘Big Sur’ or you want to immerse yourself in the sublime colours of New England in the fall – we can put together a self-drive tour to release your inner adventurer, a truly luxurious tailor-made experience.
