About Our Site

AboutDrivingAbroad was formed to offer a unique reference point on comprehensive advice on driving abroad.

Driving can be highly stressful at the best of times, but stress levels often multiply when driving in countries that you are not familiar with, particularly if you don't speak the language!

AboutDrivingAbroad offers information and practical advice on a wide range of driving situations that you might encounter. The Trip Planning category offers advice on planning rest breaks and parking safely in Europe. The Car Hire category discusses car hire schemes that often exist abroad, using your own child car seat in a rental car, and basic tips on hiring rental cars abroad.

For advice on driving in specific countries, the By Location category informs you of what to expect if you are going to be driving in Australia, South Africa, America and numerous different countries across Europe.

Other categories on AboutDrivingAbroad discuss safety aspects that you need to be aware of before you set off and during your journey, filling up with fuel while driving in Europe, saving fuel economy, keeping your children entertained on long trips, and whether your driving licence is actually valid abroad.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
