Self-drive holidays

Introduction

Self-drive holidays let you travel at your own pace, with the added freedom of changing your itinerary and the joy of seeing great destinations up close. The appeal of driving is that you decide the overall pace of your holiday and have the flexibility to go where you choose, and then spend as long as you want there - a truly luxurious, tailor-made experience.

Some of the most spectacular self-drive holidays are to be had in southern Africa, winding through forest-clad mountains, Wineland valleys and Big Five safari reserves, with time to pause at beautiful beaches. Alternatively, cruise across New Zealand, combining visits to Franz Josef Glacier and the rugged Southern Alps with wonderful road trips through the Westland, Mount Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks.

A self-drive tour offers independence, and a self-drive holiday with Wexas means you'll also enjoy full-time support from our team if needed. True luxury travel means going where you want, when you want, and you can do so with the confidence of knowing we are always on hand to offer recommendations and provide assistance. Read reviews of our service to lean how we go further for our travellers .

You can hug the oceanfront on a road trip down Australia’s Great Ocean Road or the great driving holidays in the USA, like California’s Pacific Coast Highway or the autumn colours in New England. Explore South America by car when you travel to Chile’s forested Lake District, and the fjords, glaciers and spectacular peaks of the Torres del Paine National Park; or immerse yourself in the history of Al-Andalus on a leisurely trip through the varied cultural attractions of Seville, Granada and Córdoba in Spain.

When you choose to tour along the open road, the entire world opens up before you - it's an unforgettable way to travel.
