Self-drives

Spectacular journeys on the open road

Self-drive holidays & tailor-made road trips

Introduction

Self-drive holidays allow 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 for a truly luxurious, tailor-made experience.

Hug the oceanfront on a road trip down Australia’s Great Ocean Road or experience the USA's iconic driving holidays, from California’s Pacific Coast Highway to the autumn colours of New England. Explore South America by car when you travel to Chile’s forested Lake District and the spectacular peaks of the Torres del Paine National Park, or, closer to home, immerse yourself in the history of Spain on a leisurely trip through the cultural wonders of Seville, Granada and Córdoba.

New England in the fall

Some of the most spectacular self-drive holidays are to be had in southern Africa's forest-clad mountains, Wineland valleys and Big Five safari reserves, with plenty of time to pause at beautiful beaches. Then, down in New Zealand, visits to Franz Josef Glacier and the rugged Southern Alps are wonderfully combined with road trips through the emblematic Fiordland National Parks.

South Africa's Garden Route

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.
