Episode 12 – Driving in the UK: Prepare for your trip with Tripiamo

This post may contain compensated links. Please refer to my disclosure here for more information.

Are you planning a trip to the UK and considering driving for part of your vacation? Perhaps you listened to our previous podcast episode 10 about driving the North Coast 500 in Scotland and dream of taking a road trip of your own around the UK?

BUT are you feeling stressed and nervous about the thought of driving in an unfamiliar environment and perhaps on the opposite side of the road from what you are used to? We know that this is a huge source of anxiety for many of you considering driving in the UK and is often raised in emails or in the UK Travel Planning Facebook community.

Well, this is the episode for you! In this episode, I am joined by John Cortese founder of Tripiamo which aims to help North Americans understand how to get around safely no matter where they are in the world including what you need to know to stay safe if you are planning to drive in the UK.

After listening to this podcast you will understand how Tripiamo’s guides can prepare you for your trip and help allay your fears and stresses about driving in the UK.
