    Travel Tips

    Many overseas rental agencies charge a premium for automatic cars. If you’re used to driving an automatic at home, we recommend renting an automatic. You’ll have enough on your mind without worrying about stalling the engine on the British Isles’ hilly roads.

    Every drive takes longer than you think. When passing through towns, major highways often morph into traffic-clogged two-lane streets. Farm vehicles are allowed just about anywhere, including most four-lane roads.
