Folks,

If anyone has hired a car and camped across europe during the summer, an aussie couple would love to hear any tips/advice you have to offer us. We start & finish paris for 90 days, not including UK/Ireland.

Also, if you've taken a car down to Morocco we are really interested to hear how this went and if you'd recommend it. Same goes for Turkey/Croatia

Cheers
Jac

Hello Roadtrippa

That sounds like a good trip.
I think many of us have traveled extensively, in Europe.
If I was to give tips on every place and everything, it would be a lengthy post. But, if u have more specific questions....

I dont drive, so I cant give u my opinion, about driving in Europe. Maybe sombody else can.

A short term lease or outright buying the car might be the cheaper and better option. Buying would have the advantage that you could sell the car wherever you want. A lot of rental comanies do not allow you to take the car outside of the country. When they do, you pay a premium for it.

Some good info on German roads:

Lots of Turkish people travel by car from Germany to Turkey every summer, going through Austria, Hungary and Bulgaria. This route should be relatively easy. As a rule, taking a car you own and that is registered in a European country from one EU-country to another is no problem.

I think you might need a carnet de passage for Morocco, but I am not sure. Best check out the websites or contact the embassies in question about the legal requirements.

Not to mention: Remember to drive on the right-hand side. :-)
