Advice on Driving Abroad?

Other

Hi guys, I’m going to Iceland the end of March and thinking about hiring a car. My friends went over the new year period and they said hiring a car was the best thing they did, they went to places on their own without the need for a tour guide. Has anybody here ever driven abroad? How did you find it? The cost isn’t an issue, im just nervous as I’ve never driven overseas and scared I’ll be on the wrong side of the road just in autopilot 😂 any advice is much appreciated.

I was nervous as well as left hand drive in Germany & Morocco. Watched a few YouTube vids & I drove no more then 30mph and just practiced until I got my bearings right, following car in front helped me and using good old fashioned common sense.

Don't forget to download google maps offline (Menu, offline maps, select area you want to download) for the area you are going. You need no internet or a sim for offline map on your phone to work when going from A-B saves you payinh hire co. for expensive sat nav

Always use a credit card when booking & pay for full insurance cover if affordable. Morocco I got stung with a £500 con. Luckily I got it back via my bank

"wrong side"

Most would say it's that UK drives on the wrong side, not that the rest of the world drives on the wrong side. 😆
