Reading the large thread below there appears to be plenty of people who would be interested in doing something.

yes, as long as it involves camping...as a hotel lifestyle can get expensive.

campsites ftw.

Nope.. Hotels. Accomodation was around 600 quid last time I think. Some cracking places too!!! :thumbup:

Save up tight bum..

Honestly, after driving 500 miles in 10 hours, the last thing you want is to be putting a tent up in the dark...

The hotel rooms can be got for £60 a night so two sharing makes it cheaper

I could be easily tempted - for a smallish group foray of old friends. Not sure if my Honda is suitable though :-D Blown up at the moment anyway :sad:

But Dave showed us an R26 is quite acceptable. As you say Al - after a long quick fast drive hotels and hot meals/showers/touch of luxury FTW - the holiday is about driving for a week not about pissing about with a tent for a couple hours everyday and you experience such a range of temps and weather in quick succesion. Damn near 100 degrees in Nice in the morning to snowball fights in the afternoon.

I'm afraid i'm same as N&N

Don't mind doing trip but every night in hotel i.e. £600 for hotels, fuel, food, etc. etc. i believe the cost of nearly £1000 is far beyond the reach of most. (Not everyone sits on a mound of 24 carat)

Maybe a Eurotour take in some good roads, but minimise distance and with the odd campsite stay to spread the money.

Just a thought.

The last trip with me and my bro sharing was about 700 quid each. That was hotels, ferries and petrol..

Not bad for what we did IMO!

thats more reasonable than the last euro tour figures that were posted.
