Self-Drive Cycling Holidays

Heading to your destination by car has a number of benefits. Make the journey to your destination part of the holiday - head down beautiful winding country roads, explore areas that you would have never otherwise seen or break up the journey by stopping off overnight en route.

Forget luggage limits and navigating busy airports and check-in queues with your bags. Instead, you could pack up the car and head to Calais, followed by just a short ride on the Eurotunnel. Before you know it you will be pulling out into France, from where you can access all of our French cycling tours.

We offer a number of single centre cycling tours, which are perfect for driving to as you will park up and stay at the same place for the duration of the tour. Alternatively, if you prefer to self-drive to a point to point tour, we can tailor you a circular route so you’ll start and end in the same place. Speak to one of our cycling experts today who will be delighted to organise your self-drive cycling holiday for you.

What to expect

  • An exciting self-drive experience exploring places you wouldn't have otherwise seen
  • Advice from our experts on the best places to see en route to your holiday destination
  • Available on all our French cycling holidays
  • Our team will be delighted to organise your Eurotunnel travel for you

"Choosing to self-drive to your French cycling tour is a great way to see more of the country. Consider building in a stop en route to see some of the local attractions; or maybe break up the journey with an over night stay somewhere new."
