Once in Europe it is very easy to get around and the distances are relatively small. From the main points of entry there are plenty of flight connections to most of the European countries, but you can also chose to travel by train, some of which are high speed. A train journey will give you a better opportunity to experience the landscapes and the different cultures of the European countries.


You may choose to rent a car and drive yourself. Remember that on the British Isle you drive on the left hand side whilst in the rest of the European countries you drive on the right. Make sure to investigate beforehand if you need an international driving license to drive in Europe, it depends on which country your driving license has been issued in and to some extent also on the countries you want to drive in.


Many countries use the Euro as their common currency, but some countries in Europe are not part of the Euro and use their own currency. Among the countries with their own currency are the UK, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark so when you go to these countries you will have to exchange to the local currency and not into Euro.
