Travel Britain By Road
The average Australian tends to drive everywhere because in Australia it is an easy way to get around. But when it comes to travelling around Britain, it's a whole new ball game. The dyamics are quite different there; though places are closer together, the roads are much narrower and busier than they are in Australia. Car hire is much cheaper than in Australia, but the saving can very quickly be offset by other costs. There's the high cost of fuel, the narrow, winding roads that are not easy to navigate and take you all around the countryside rather directly from point A to point B. And then there is having to pay parking fees wherever you go.
Avoiding the Tourist Car Hire Trap
When it comes to exploring Europe, the most hassle-free and comfortable travel option is rail. There are no airport check-in lines or being confined to your seat, and as railway stations in Europe are generally right in the middle of town, chances are your train will drop you within walking distance of your accommodation, no matter what your destination might be.
