20th - 24th September 2018
You can use a vehicle up to the value of £750 or a vehicle that fits in with the event that is valued at more. Once you have bought your car you can customise it any way you want and up to any cost.
There will also be the cost of a ferry, unless you have an amphibious car. The ferry will cost around £70 for your car and up to 5 passengers.
Think about what mpg your car will return, Jag / 7 series that does 15 to a gallon or a Corsa diesel that does 60+?
There are many different options when travelling through Europe, the are multiple chain restaurants like you would see at home as well as more local offerings. All the campsites we stop at have a cafe / restaurant on or very close to the site. As we are camping you have the option to stop a tthe supermarket and cook / BBQ for yourself.
There are unfortunately tolls on some foreign motorways. These can be avoided by taking the longer / slower scenic route.
Some countries require you to buy a type of road tax to use their roads called a Vignette, the fines are quite high and you will be sticking out from the crowd in your dayglo tutu. Switzerland, Austria and the Czech Republic.
Some larger cities in Europe have LEZ low emmission zone swhich limit where certain vehicles can go. Check before you travel if you intend to go into any cities.
Camp sites will be provided, so take a tent, gas stove, other camping type stuff and a sleeping bag, or forget all that and sleep in the car.
The total mileage 1,725 (ish) on the most direct route, avoiding the toll roads is about 1,800 miles but takes longer. The destinations are subject to some alteration if the camping facilities do not match our standards when we visit in the summer.
