Why choose Great British Trips for your Self-Drive tour in the UK?


image On our driving tours of England and Great Britain, we’ll arrange a hire car for you that can be collected at any UK airport and many different city locations throughout the UK. Your car can be manual or automatic and a size to suit your needs. We will arrange suitable accommodation for you each night as you make your journey through Britain.

We have excellent relationships with hundreds of trusted suppliers and a self-drive holiday is one of the most fun for us to create as we can choose the most interesting, unique and downright beautiful accommodation - most of which is so far off the beaten track that it's only accessible with a car. We can also arrange attractions tickets and passes, to make your Great British Trip that much better.



What we can offer



As well as a free Tour Planning and Booking Service, our unique knowledge and extensive database allow us to plan the kind of tour that we would love to take. We always include as many of the things that you have asked for as possible and our tours usually include incredible locations such as quaint English pubs, overnight stays in manor houses or castles and discovering the hidden ruins of an ancient abbey - abandoned centuries ago you can still hear the eerie echoes of the ancient monks.



You will also receive our Great British Trips Travel pack containing information on all the destinations you’ll visit including destination maps, eating out information and more. As you would expect, you’ll also receive a full itinerary with all your accommodation information for the tour. We can provide you with a GPS for your car as well as detailed accommodation information and maps to make finding where you want to go simple.



The vehicles we hire on your behalf are always new, in perfect condition, the size that you require and have an automatic or manual transmission (depending on what you ask for!). They include all the insurance that you require (though you may choose to take out additional insurances when collecting the car - this is not necessary).



Just tell us where you want to go, and how long you want to take, and we’ll put together you’re perfect itinerary. Start by choosing your destinations along with any extras you might want to include. When you're done choosing, go to 'My Itinerary', complete your information and be sure to tell us that you would like self-drive throughout. We will be back to you in a few days with an itinerary suggestion and price
