A new study from the team at CarMats.co.uk looked at the world’s best road trip by researching landmarks, the cost of renting a car and the length of the trip.
This year’s winning route is an “exhilarating” trip which won’t “cost the earth” as it’s visiting affordable countries.
British tourists may find the cost of car hire has surged this year due to a shortage of cars and rising costs.
Before renting a car, it’s important to take a photo of any damage already on the car to make sure tourists aren’t scammed at the end of the trip.
Tourists should also clarify how much petrol they need to put in the car before returning it to the garage.

The 350km trip will take the length of the Danube River with plenty of lakes to stop at along the way.
