Luxury Driving Vacations You Won't Want To Miss

With the summer well on the way and the Goodwood Festival of Speed approaching, many people are thinking about luxury driving vacations. Driving vacations are different from “road trips.” Unlike road trips which are ad hoc (and sometimes random experience), luxury driving vacations are experiences operated by tour operators, designed to provide you with the best that driving has to offer.

A company called The Run To operates a series of luxury driving experiences between iconic destinations worldwide, including Monaco. One of the most famous of the company’s experiences is the run from Muscat to Yas where a group of motorists assemble to drive some of the most luxurious cars in the world, including Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake. The trip ends in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, where guests attend a party. 
Start A Luxury Driving Tour In Southern Germany
Southern Germany and Bavaria offer some of the most stunning landscapes in all of Europe. The country’s southern border reaches far enough south to enter the foothills of the Alps, making it perfect driving country. Motorists are spoiled by hundreds of kilometres of roads which weave along the sides of mountains, providing stunning views of the valleys below. 
 The Charles Hotel in Munich, the capital of the area, operates a luxury driving tour for committed petrolheads throughout the entire region. Drivers can choose to drive a range of highly desirable cars, including the Lamborghini Gallardo (the company’s previous generation car), the Ferrari 458 or a Porsche Carrera GT. The tour begins in the beautiful region of Bavaria and then has drivers travel north towards the financial centre of Frankfurt and later on to Berlin. The entire journey takes around four nights, and drivers are put up in luxury hotels throughout the trip. Prices vary depending on the type of car that you decide to rent, with the most expensive packages reserved for those who take out the most luxurious vehicles.

If you love racing and want to hurl yourself around a track at high speed, then you might want to consider the Peninsula Hotel’s “Exotic Car Adventure.” The tour allows you to race performance cars around the Autobahn Country Club Raceway near to the city and get proper driving instruction to boot. Drivers get around four hours to push their vehicles to the limit before having to hand them back to their owners.
