Driving to UK through EU, what visa is required.

I have a Turkish friend who has a current UK visa, he often flies to the UK but this time his English wife will fly out to UK but he will drive through EU taking their two dogs and some personal possessions. He will hire a van here in Turkey, make the trip, then a few weeks later return here. The UK is not part of the Schengen agreement therefore I doubt his UK visa would cover his travel across to the UK.

The question is, what sort of Schengen visa is required to cross the EU and to which country to apply to. My friend is entering through Bulgaria and exiting through France. Do they do the equivelent of a transit visa?

Csnt answer 100% but the following may help, some euro countries dont even need a valid passport to enter turkey, and given the process is suposed to be reciprocal

Countries whose citizens are allowed to enter Turkey with their national ID?s / Rep. of Turkey Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Bulgaria, whilst part of the EU is not part of the Schengen Agreement at the moment so he will need to apply for a Bulgarian visa. To travel through various Schengen countries he will need to apply to the Consulate of the first Schengen country he will go through.

I didn't think you could take a hire vehicle out of Turkey or any other country for that matter.
