Fly Drive The Real Holidays Way

A fly-drive is so much more than simply hiring a car. Speak to us about connecting the dots to create a journey that allows for cultural exploration at your own speed.

    What is a fly-drive?

    Simply put, a fly-drive is an itinerary we put together for you to get from one interesting destination to the next. You’ll drive yourself in your own time, stopping for leisurely explorations of cultural sights before arriving at your hotel for the night. On the way we’ll recommend our in-the-know places for lunch or a picnic and the must-see stops along the way. For those who love independent travel and the freedom of the open road – a fly-drive makes a ideal holiday.

    Why take a fly-drive holiday with Real Holidays?

    We’ve been creating fly-drives for happy customers for over 30 years. Our network of contacts and intricate on-the-ground knowledge means we know how to join the dots for an enjoyable and explorative trip abroad. But first, we like to get to know you. Your priorities will help shape the trip in its infancy before we flesh it out with our recommendations. We’re absolutely not confined by any set routes or hotels – so we can create your itinerary from scratch to perfectly suit your needs. Once you’ve booked, we’ll give you maps and guide book, and you can hit the road.

    Why are fly-drives so brilliant?

    This is the ultimate trip for independent travellers, but without any organisational worry. Booking with Real Holidays takes out the headache of planning the route yourself, and the stress of making reservations at two to three properties and paying for them all individually – cue quite a lot of work. Hand over all that to us, we’ll neatly package it up for you and away you go. The only decision you’ll need to make is where to spot for photos, which café to frequent for coffee or what music playlist will accompany your epic road trip.

    Where do our fly-drives go?

    Perhaps an easier question is – where do you want to go? As we can create a purpose-built journey to work around exactly where you want to visit. That said, we have a few fly-drive itineraries that we’ve travelled ourselves and know to work excellently and get consistently good feedback from our clients. Perhaps you long to explore the vast national parks of the USA or the sleepy hilltop towns of the Italian countryside? Or are you drawn to the dramatic scenery of South Africa’s Garden Route or ancient Grecian wonders of the Peloponnese in Greece? Whatever you decide, we can create a fly-drive that will fill you with the wonders of the world.
