Planet Ride handles all the hard work, leaving you with nothing but fun, adventure, and freedom on your road trip by car. We offer trips for every interest too. Whether you want to get behind the wheel of a classic car, experience a historic place, or set out to immerse yourself in a specific aspect of a country’s culture, you will find just the right tour with Planet Ride. We currently feature car travels in 13 different countries across North America, Europe, and Africa, with locations that include France, Spain, Ireland, Italy, South Africa, Croatia, Cuba, and the United States. Planet Ride offers a wide range of trip durations too, with car travels as short as four days and as long was twenty. In that time, you can venture between famous movie filming locations in the most beautiful spots of Ireland; cruise the gorgeous, unspoiled coastline of Croatia; explore the backroads of Tuscany while tasting the local wines, olive oils, and delicious cuisine; or experience one of our other exciting self drive tours. The road trip car we offer varies from country to country and trip to trip. Some, like a few of the tours in the United States, offer fun cars like the Ford Mustang convertible or a little Fiat 500. Others feature classic cars like the quaint Citroen 2 CV or the exciting AC Cobra. A few of the tours offer flexibility and let you choose the exact type of rental car that fits your needs - from a simple compact model to a van that will hold your whole family, and all the way to an exotic like a Ferrari !

What Planet Ride offers for Car Road Trips
We have car travels that will satisfy a diverse set of interests. If adrenaline and speed are what you need, then one of our trips featuring the AC Cobra would be your best bet. We feature gastronomic tours of Ireland and Italy. On some of our other self drive tours, you have the opportunity to explore under-the-radar spots like Cyprus, Cuba, and Iceland. You can even take a step back in time with a classic car through France. So, pick the road trip car that suits you and get ready for some fun and adventure! To help, we have featured a few trip examples below.
First up, is an 11-day gastronomic road trip through Ireland. You will arrive in Dublin and explore all the city has to offer before setting off. On the way to Waterford City (which is the oldest city in Ireland), you’ll admire the beautiful Kilkenny Castle and St. Canice’s Cathedral. On day three, you’ll explore County Cork and learn a little about Irish Whiskey. Before departing Cork, you’ll visit the foodie paradise that is the English Market. Days five and six are dedicated to experiencing all that County Kerry has to offer, including quaint fishing villages and spectacular coastal roads along the Ring of Kerry. From here, we head through County Clare on the way to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher. While your journey is nearly over, you’ll get to experience the tranquility and rugged beauty of the Aran islands before returning to Dublin.
If classic cars get you fired up, then 7-days in Provence with a Citroen 2 CV is probably the trip for you! Make your way through Provence, and all that it offers, with complete freedom. After each day of driving, you can relax and recharge with delicious local food and wine in charming guest houses. Get lost on the small, barely traveled roads and enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounds you. Along the way, visit the Regional Natural Park between Durance and Luberon and the Luberon geological reserve, or venture down one of the historic roads which date back to the Waldenses, Romans, or possibly even beyond. Towards the end of the trip, you’ll get to explore the village of Cadenet, before returning to La Fare.
For a little more adventure, check out the 5-day dash through South African wine country with an awesome road trip car – the AC Cobra roadster. After discovering all that Cape Town has to offer, you’ll travel down the coastal road past False Bay and the penguins of Boulder Beach on your way to the picturesque seaside town of Hermanus. Here, you will find some of the best whale watching in the world, as well as plenty of excellent local wines. Finally, you’ll wind your way through the rocky valleys and mountains of Franschhoek. You can then spend the remainder of the day enjoying the splendid views and wines offered by this area. On the final day, you’ll cruise back to Cape Town to return your car and catch your flight home.
One of the longest self drive tours we offer is an 18-day journey along historic Route 66 through the heart of America. Your car travels begin in the city of Chicago and end in Los Angeles. Along the way, you’ll visit iconic spots like St. Louis, Santa Fe, and Las Vegas. You’ll also venture through several other major cities, such as Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Amarillo. The rest of this trip is entirely up to you; stop and explore as much as you like, revel in the natural beauty, and laugh at the roadside gimmicks !
