Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Hi to you all

Yes there were 2 of us driving,i had to recruit a friend as my wife does not do ferries,only one problem was that most of the time he was sleeping or texting his new love so i actually drove nearly all of the miles !!

The green card is what you obtain from your insurance company to allow you to drive through countries which are not in the EU.

G&D we now have a grandson and he is coming out here to live on the 18th,he just got his passport yesterday so he will be 1 month old when he gets here.

Paul

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Sorry for the late addition to this post but had no internet for 1 week coutesy of TTK,their engineer acidentally knocked out half a dozen homes and it has taken a week to repair.

Any how i have no worked out my driving costs to the nearest i can

Total fuel costs came in at 329.31

Breakdown cover 41.76

Ferry Dover to Dunkirk 23.00

Serbia Green Card and tolls 120.00

Bulgaria road charge 5.00

So in total 514.07 but could have been 100 cheaper had my insurance sent me a green card as i asked them to which they insisted i didnt need !!

Just been looking at the costs to take the ferry back to Italy in August but this comes to over 500 Euros just for this leg so it looks like another ground breaking drive,anyone think i could do it back to the Uk in 2 Days ???

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Well done Paul

I would really like to try it, but bit concerned bout the dangers of driving abroad, but must have been a great adventure.

Cheers Peter

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Great information Paul, Did you have any problems with the border crossings,partcularly taking your car into Turkey?
Have thought about doing it and your post has given me food for thought.

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

Hi,if anyone is thinking of doing it then dont be frightened,we had no problems whatsoever,the roads for the majority of the journey were good and even driving into turkey was the fastest process i have encountered in the 2 years i have lived here.

We stopped in service stations and the usual services but never felt the need to be looking over our shoulders,one thing that did amuse us was that every country we went through there was an Ikea !!,wish we had a european ikea map as this would have made the journey easier.

Re: Manchester to Dalaman 2 1/2 days drive !!

The way the price of oil is going which will increase flight prices makes driving there more sense.I get 60mpg running around in Wales and have managed 76.4 mpg on a journey to London.Could be cheaper than flying.
