So you’ve decided that the time has come to go on the ultimate road trip around Europe. You know that there will be nothing quite like exploring the cultures of Europe as well as seeing some of the beautiful landscapes and historical landmarks and buildings. There are many people who agree that driving around Europe in their car is the only way to see the best of Europe. For one, there would be no need to worry about scheduled transportation or planned tour guide transportation. You would be traveling on your own time, on your own personal schedule which means you can go where you want when you want. You will also be able to take as much time as you want when driving around the countryside.
However, while this idea of traveling around Europe sounds fun and like a dream vacation, but you have to keep in mind the current condition of your car. When was the last time you had your car serviced? If it has been a while since your car has had an inspection or has been serviced, then this is something that you need to have done before you go on your European road trip.
This of course is something that you need to do on any road trip that you go on, but the roads of Europe tend to go on for miles and miles, and it would not be fun or convenient to break down in the middle of nowhere on the countryside of a highway. With that being said, you should definitely have your car serviced by Kwik Fit before you are well on your way for your road trip.

Now, depending on where in Europe you will be taking your road trips as well as what time of year it will be, will also help you determine what repairs need to be made.
Autobahn Germany is a well-liked route by those who really love putting the pedal to the metal. Reason being for this is because there is no speed limit on this particular highway, so you can drive as slow or as fast as your heat desires. If you plan to be driving down this road it is probably best to travel this road during the warmer months since icy cold months are more prone to attracting accidents when people drive too fast on them.
When considering driving this highway, it is best that you make sure your tyres are good, and your brakes are good so that you have no issues with easily slowing down or sliding on the road if your tyres have no tread.
Route 500, Germany
There’s nothing quite like driving down a highway that takes you right through the Black Forest. The road is nice and smooth, and you will also get a very nice view of the surrounding mountains and wild life scenery. On this destination you will want to make sure that you take your time and don’t drive to fast so that you can enjoy the surrounding scenery. You’ll also want to make sure that you drive slowly because the turns are sharper. You’ll want to keep full alertness and stay cautious on this road, especially if you are a new tourist to the area.
Keep your gas tank full because although there are many petrol stations along the way of the route, there are points in time on the road when there are many miles to drive before you get to the next station, so take care to not run out of gas.
Ring of Kerry, Ireland
The Ring of Kerry in Ireland is one of the most famous roads to drive down because of its beautiful scenery and marvelous coastline. The majority of people who visit Ireland have the Ring of Kerry on their list of things to venture into.
Since Ireland is known for being a very rainy country, you need to make sure you are prepared to drive on their roads. Check your tires to make sure there is enough tread on them, and check to make sure your windshield wipers are working properly before you go.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
Driving down the Amalfi Coast is like going back in time in a time machine because as you drive down this road you will see some of the oldest architectural buildings that tell the history of Italy.
The Spring time is when it is best to visit the Amalfi coast. The temperature is nice and warm and you can avoid the high tourist traffic that is usually present during the months of July and August. This will also ensure better safety on the road since there will be less traffic.
