Hi, is anyone driving back to the UK in the next couple of weeks who could possibly offer a lift to my (non flying!) husband. He needs to get home to bring back a vehicle here. He's heading for Cheltenham but a lift to somewhere with a station or a coach would be great! thanks

I need to hire a small van to pick up some stuff from Wales over the next couple of weekends. Where can I hire a van (a) that will allow me to go to the UK, and (b) at a reasonable price?

I need to replace my old Garmin satnav with a new (Europewide) one. Any recommendations? I found the Garmin, which I bought new in England, is a bit vague at times - particularly in England!!

Hello ,  I am looking for somewhere - a field -near Amsterdam or anywhere in Holland really to leave my little car for three months while me and hubby take our boat from  Amsterdam to SW France where we live. We  have thought of coming by train but  with two dogs it would be much more convenient to bring the car - plus  we can do shopping and whatever else we need to do before leaving .  If anyone can help I'd be really grateful - maybe  you'd like a trip on our boat or a holiday in our cottage in France in exchange ?  Sue

Does anyone know how long it would take to drive from Amsterdam to Prague - route maps on the web say 8 and a half hours but is that realistic?

I need to leave my car at Schipol for a week, should I use the airport car park or can anyone recommend a service that will park it in a secure compound off site and drop you at the airport. My wife will be picking the car up from them when she returns from a trip - is that possible or does it have to be me who picks it up? Flights are really early ones both mine going and hers coming in.

If you are having difficulty to the UK or anywhere else due to the volcano there is a website where people are listing space in vehicles travelling all around Europe and beyond. If there is not one that meets your requirements you can also post your journey requirements and if anyone is going your way they can contact you. There are lots of postings so it is worth a try. http://www.roadsharing.com/

My father, who is approaching 70, needs to either renew his UK licence or possibly swap it for a Dutch one. Anyone know what's the best option? He no longer has a UK address.

Has anyone any knowledge of selling a previous uk reg vehicle (now Dutch reg) to a buyer in the uk. The person will have no problem at their end re-registering it, but I would like to know what I have to do at this end regarding de-registering it. I heard a tale about someone who had left their car in the UK for their son but was fined for letting the tax run out here.

Although I have a full UK car driving licence I don't have a car at present. I am, however, thinking of getting a small scooter for commuting to work. Do I need to get a Dutch driving licence for this or will my UK car licence be ok?

I got stopped last night and had not got my paperwork with me - the police were OK but pretty stern about menot having my paperwork with me. They said it was a legal requirement and I could be fined. Is this right that it is the law?

Anyone know what's happening? Someone said the drivers are going on strike. We're planning to go to the UK for Xmas.

I was wondering which route people tend to take when they're driving from here to the UK. I've always driven to Calais and then used Eurotunnel but I wonder if there are routes which involve less driving/less cost?

My Brother is coming over for Christmas and is planning to drive but wants to know which route to take, as he lives in Essex he says the Eurotunnel would be quicker, but I think he should use the Harwich Ferry. Has anyone done these routes and which would they recommend.
