With the freedom to 'go-as-you-please' exploring stunning scenery, the flexibility to take part in any number of optional activities and excursions, and with a wonderful mix of accommodation choices, a self drive holiday really does tick all the boxes. Whether exploring the dramatic landscapes of Iceland and New Zealand, the breathtaking Norwegian Fjords, the sparkling coastline of West Sweden, the vastness of Australia and Canada or off the beaten track in Alaska, there is good reason fly drive holidays are so popular.
A self drive holiday offers the freedom to travel at your own pace and explore both out of the way sights and popular attractions. You can choose an itinerary straight ‘off the peg’ or you can let our team of expert travel advisors create a tailor-made holiday especially for you.
Each of our Iceland fly drive holidays has been carefully researched and planned to include the places that we know visitors will enjoy and range from 3-16 nights. Choose a short break focusing on the waterfalls and glaciers of the south shore, explore the rugged interior by 4WD or drive the loop around the island’s scenic route 1 taking in a wealth of scenic wonders. And if you can’t find the itinerary that is right for you, our expert team will be happy to tailor make a holiday to your exact specifications.
Our collection of fly drive holidays in New Zealand includes classic touring routes throughout both islands, special interest itineraries to suit nature and wine enthusiasts as well as adventurous 4x4 self drive holidays. Accommodation is based on three classifications – budget, tourist and superior and is included throughout so that you can spend each day exploring as you wish with the comfort of knowing where you will stay each night. This is especially recommended during peak season (November-March).
If our featured itineraries do not meet your requirements we can create a tailor made fly drive holiday for you. You can mix and match accommodation from hotels and motels to boutique properties and New Zealand lodges and also choose from a wide range of rental vehicles including compact, mid-range and luxury cars, 4x4 vehicles or fully-equipped motorhomes.
You would need a lot of time to tackle the whole of Australia on a self-drive holiday due to the vast distances involved - this is a very big country! However, with careful planning and practical use of other forms of transport such as planes and trains, a fly drive holiday is one of most enjoyable ways to explore Australia. Mix and match our selection of regional itineraries to make longer holiday or let us create a tailor-made holiday exclusively to your interests and timescale.
