Self-Drive Holidays

Driving is one of the best ways to see a country as it allows for complete flexibility - you can go where you like, stop where you like and ultimately explore at your own pace.

The USA is one of our favourite self-drive destinations, and more precisely California. Driving through the state - ideally in a convertible - is one of the very best ways to see the coast, desert, national parks and the cities all on one trip. Highway 1 along the coast is one the world's best drives and Los Angeles is the home of the freeway.

We can arrange a car for you and your family and put together a fantastic self-drive itinerary, allowing you to pick up your car in one location and drop it off in another. We will arrange all of your accommodation and provide you with clear information and maps to ensure you have the very best driving adventure.
