    Novotel Reims is a good call for stopover – they don;t bat an eyelid when you walk through reception with a bike on your shoulder!

    we did Manchester to les arc (via Chunnel) in the summer last year. It took about 15 hours in total, and we split the driving between two of us.

    I definitely would not want to drive the whole distance myself. It took about 15 hours door to door.

    Once in france the autoroutes were almost totally traffic free, a total contrast to driving in the UK.

    Can you get European breakdown cover for the galaxy? In the past anything over 15 yers is a problem unless it is a classic

    My mate was able to insure his 30+ year old car with the RAC for Europe. They give you a cooling off period, so it was cancelled when we got back.

    I’ve only driven to T’Alps once. Way there seemed to take forever, really tiring and had to pull over for a good kip. Way back was really easy straight through the night got on an earlier ferry, last car on.

    So I think the easiness of long distance driving depends on things other than how far it is and what car you are in…

    True.

    On our way back to Reims, which was on a Saturday, the motorway was heaving, no jams like UK roads but the bastards will not ever ever never let you out into the outside lane to overtake something going slowly, must be a French thing but it really started to piss me off after 7 hours.

    If there is 4 of you have you investigated hiring a large people carrier

    he owns a large people carrier, he just wants his mate to drive

    [/quote]Same week as me then Also driving.

    Look forward to seeing you out there!

    We’ll be driving down from York, so planning to leave Friday morning. Plan is an easy trip to Kent, channel crossing, a bit of driving and then a stop over somewhere. Up early to get there in good time.

    Did find some short term car insurance, but car owner happy to drive if we stay in hotels both ways.

    Looking at 3 of us and 2 bikes in the golf. Friends are going in a van, so may be able to carry bikes for us.

    As for getting back if the driver breaks something? Hoping the travel insurance/car breakdown will cover that!
