Take our cars vans and minibuses on a continental tour

At Priory, we love the open road. The highways, the byways, the heady speed of the motorway, or the scenic tranquillity of the country lane. The UK’s road networks can be a joy to navigate, but we’re not the only country with wonderful roads to enjoy.

Our closest continental neighbour, France, is also blessed with a well maintained network of highways, as does most of Europe which, are such a joy to travel, it’d be a pity to deny that experience to our customers. So we don’t.

At Priory, we don’t restrict you to UK roads, if your journey takes you across the channel, we’re delighted to be able to accommodate European travel, including the provision of specialist European breakdown cover for your peace of mind.


European Travel – Read up on the rules before you go

While many of the rules on the continent are similar or the same as those over here, there are several things to be aware of and one or two notable differences.

First and foremost, you probably need no reminding that as soon as you drive off the ferry, you’ll have to drive on the ‘wrong’ side of the road. If you’ve not done this before, be prepared for a few moments of uncertainty, but this will soon pass and your normal driving instincts will quickly adjust. Simply follow a car with a European number plate while you leave the ferryport.

As with all rules, there are changes made to driving law all the time and each country has slight differences, so it’s worth looking up the latest information on the country or countries you’re planning on driving in to make sure you’re not caught unawares.

On the continent, most countries expect you to carry certain items in your vehicle at all times. We do endeavour to provide all the necessary items in our hire vehicles, but we do recommend that you research what you need and have a chat with us to double check these are present before you leave.
