This city, rich with industrial history, offers plenty to do whether you're a soccer fanatic, history buff, or art aficionado. The city's close proximity to a number of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and five of the most breathtaking drives in Wales & Western England is what makes Manchester the perfect jumping off point for your spring road trip!
You may not be surprised to see London on our list of hottest road trip destinations but it's not just because of the city's historic appeal. In 2016, North American travelers opted to extend the duration of their car rental in London to just over 10 days! More and more travelers are venturing beyond the city limits to experience the culture & beauty surrounding London. Consider taking the family on a kid-friendly road trip to experience historic sites such as Stonehenge, Shakespeare's birthplace, and the national museum of the Royal Navy first-hand!
Glasgow is not just the gateway to western Scotland's striking islands, towering mountains and mystical lochs. Scotland's biggest city is bursting with energy, live music, trendy shopping and restaurants. There's no wonder why Glasgow's popularity as a car rental pick-up destination grew considerably in 2016 among Canadian travelers, a trend that's expected to continue in early 2017.

"We expect North American travelers to continue to seek out authentic experiences beyond those listed in the top 10 travel lists," states Karen Schaffer, Auto Europe's Vice President of Ecommerce. "We are hearing from more travelers that they are looking to really explore the area they are visiting and are opting to drive to discover the lesser-known destinations through Europe."
