Light at the end of the tunnel

The recent arrival of the first batch of Coronavirus vaccines means that many of us will be thinking of setting off again (or perhaps for the first time) on a driving holiday in Europe.

  • You could be wondering how the price of fuel has moved during the pandemic - should you fill up in the UK or after leaving the ferry in Europe? Check out the price of petrol and diesel in Europe here.
  • Are the ferry companies even accepting bookings for 2021 yet? Oh yes - they can't wait to get us back on their ships. Free cancellation is on offer with many of the operators. For a refresher on who sails where and when and with links to book direct, follow this link.
  • Should we take a chance and book hotels, apartments and holidays homes? What happens if things don't go according to plan and we need to cancel? The good news is that the majority of the thousands of properties offered by our partner booking.com have free cancellation - just be sure to check the terms carefully.

We will follow up this message with a run down of the situation re Brexit and the likely effect on our travel and driving plans. So keep an eye on your inbox and happy travelling in 2021!

Happy New Year and happy travelling from Drive-Alive!
