Self-drive Adventure Holidays

Self-guided walking holidays but with even more freedom. This range of walk and drive holidays come with car hire included in the price, perfect for giving you and your travel companions more opportunities to explore and get off the beaten track. Plus, this way of travel is ideal if you are sampling an active holiday for the first time or with your family- don’t feel like walking one day, then hop in your car and head sightseeing for the day instead.

Self-Guided Car Hire FAQ's

Each self-guided holiday includes one hire car with one named driver. You choose who is to be your chosen driver. You simply need to ensure that they are also on the holiday booking, are over the age of 25 years old and hold a valid EU/UK driving licence. The driving licence must be clean and have been held for a minimum of 3 years.

Please note: If you hold a licence which was issued outside of the EU/UK (i.e US) you may be required to apply for an International Driving Permit (IDP). This is an online application for a small fee.
