With disruptions to UK airspace and the possibility of summer strikes some holidaymakers will not wish to risk their precious holiday time

With the threat of ongoing air disruption (the last time this Icelandic volcano erupted it lasted for two years) and the threat of air and rail strikes over the summer, Pure Holiday Homes says why not consider a destination that you can drive to, avoiding all possibilities of upsetting your travel plans. With over 5,300 self catering rental properties to choose from, 4,300 of which are located in Europe, Pure Holiday Homes offers a wealth of properties to suit all tastes and budgets.

France

Due to the numerous car ferries and the Eurotunnel, the most popular ‘drive to’ destination remains France. For years Brits have been driving to the holiday destination in all regions of France, be it the Alps for skiing, Cote d’Azur for an elegant getaway, Brittany or to the South West areas of the Dordogne and Bordeaux.

For access by car, Pure Holiday Homes offers a beautiful range of homes in France examples include

1. A classic farmhouse in Brittany with swimming pool sleeps 12

2. A Stunning villa in Antibes with a private Swimming Pool and view of the sea sleeps 7

The Alps

For stunning scenery, sunshine and fresh air there are few locations in Europe to match the Alps in the summer. It is also a location where a car is a must to visit the pretty lakeside towns and the chocolate box villages.

The Alps also offer exceptional value in the summer for family holidays and escapes for outdoor enthusiasts.

The mountains and lakes of northern Italy or the rolling hills of Tuscany provide some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable and some of the most exhilarating drives.

The historic cities such as Pamplona and Santiago de Compostela for example are complemented by the dramatic mountain regions of the Pyrenees and the beautiful coastline near to Barcelona. Pure Holiday Homes offers …

“Millions of Brits access Europe by car each year and we believe this number is now going significantly rise following the troubles caused by the Icelandic volcanic ash. With disruptions to UK airspace and the possibility of summer strikes some holidaymakers will not wish to risk their precious holiday time, We have many thousands of properties across Europe that are easily accessible by car, therefore avoiding the skies and also most likely offering a cost saving.” comments Sean Collins, Joint CEO of Pure Holiday Homes.

Driving to a holiday destination can often be the most hassle free mode of transport with the avoidance of busy airports, transfers and carrying suitcases from one stop to the next, the comfort provided to your family and in many situations the cost. For a family of four to travel to Toulouse, France in July the flights alone would be over £600, not including car hire which could easily be an extra £200 for the week. In contrast, driving through the Eurotunnel would cost approximately £150 return for the same period.
