Transportation in Scotland,
England & Wales

The Golf Travel Group provides several luxury transport options for your British expedition.

Great Britain is an amazing place to visit and explore by car (either self-drive or professionally guided). For most visitors the British drive on “the wrong side” of the road — i.e. on the left hand lane, and the driver sits on the right hand side of the car. It does take some time to “reprogram” the mind to think in the opposite sense at junctions and on roundabouts and motorways, but after a couple of days into your journey it becomes a lot more comfortable...and fun!
