Spring is a time to revitalise the senses, recharge the batteries and as the weather warms up, embark on new adventures. And what better way to do this than a European road trip with Avis?
With your windows rolled down, you’ll be able to experience some of the most spectacular routes in the northern hemisphere. In March and April, the flowers are in full bloom - promising a visual treat no matter where your Avis trip takes you.
For a true floral-infused European trip, the Netherlands is probably the most well-known, especially famous for its springtime tulips and daffodils. Driving the Netherland's Flower Route will take you from the northern town of Haarlem to Naalwijk, passing fields full of colour. Plan your trip around 19-23 April to catch Holland’s Flower Parade Week in the bulb-growing region of Bollenstreek.
If you thought that Japanese Sakura couldn’t get any more beautiful, think again! In Spring, European cities are tinged with the oriental cherry trees. Take an Avis road trip across France to see cherry blossom growing under the Eiffel Tower, or drive through the Loire Valley with its regal Châteaux and sprawling gardens.
The season is also perfect for discovering Normandy, where the apple trees are in full bloom, and a visit to Claude Monet’s Garden in Giverny will literally have you feeling as though you’ve stepped into a painting.
The English countryside offers some simply beautiful drives when a car is essential, with wild woods of bluebells and snowdrops, or tour the more formal spring gardens of the National Trust properties located across the UK. Alternatively, drive through Wales to experience pristine countryside, daffodils, orchards and fields full of newborn lambs.
A lesser-known but spectacular drive is in Hungary, where Budapest’s famous Gellert Hill is covered with blossoming trees and cafe terraces spill onto the streets.
With so much to see, it’s important that the car rental company offers the best choice and service. With unlimited mileage, Avis 360° offers all-inclusive rental, without excess. Whether you need a car for a few days, a weekend or 2 weeks, you won’t have to worry.
