Take the wheel on self-drive holidays

Free spirits. Open roads. A self-drive holiday puts you in control – with the reassurance of all the service you’d expect from Saga.

On our meticulously planned self-drive itineraries, we take the legwork out of a road trip by planning everything you need. We plot the route and book the hotels – so all you do is pick up the keys and hit the road. You’ll have plenty of multi-night stays, giving you lots of time to explore each destination. And we plan the driving times carefully to make sure you’re not on the road all day or driving vast distances.

Take an iconic road trip along Route 66 or California’s Highway 1 in the USA, hit cruise control as you head through the Canadian Rockies. Feel the breeze over your face as you take in the spectacular coastal scenery of Australia’s Great Ocean Road or South Africa’s Garden Route. Some of these trips include flexible car hire options with a choice of vehicles, including four-wheel drives and convertibles – so you get to choose the wheels that best suit you.

Alternatively, if you crave more freedom, our affordable motorhome rentals give you the comforts of home with the flexibility to either follow one of our suggested routes, or choose when and where to stop each evening. And for the truly wild-at-heart who love to draw their own roadmaps, we offer simple vehicle rental from the world’s leading hire companies.

What does an organised road trip look like?
