When I go to SA I have a problem driving on the left side of the road as I'm used to driving on the right side.....use windscreen wipers for blinkers etc....

Driving in Europe : some hints and tips...

In France , petrol and diesel are usually quite a bit cheaper at hypermarches
( Carrefour/Auchan/Intermarche/Leclerc etc ) than at "brand" filling stations , particularly the Autoroute-ones ; however , note that the cheap ones usually close the payment-booths by 20.00 , so you'd need a french debit-card , to purchase/self-service in the hours 20.00 to 08.00 next morning ; one known exception is Carrefour Calais Cite Europe , where the manned "caisse" stays open 'till 22.00 !
In Belgium , the speed limit is 120 km/h , the police won't react if you "do" 130 , though ! Fill-up in towns , not on M-ways : "Jet" is normally cheapest!
Driving southerly from Aachen , Germany , the first big rest-station ,"Aachener Land Sued" has some truly great German specialty hot and cold foods , at v. reasonable prices , in superbly-neat self-service resto = always Recommended!
But , as far as I know , the cheapest fuel of all is in Luxembourg.Once you're there , make sure that you get to spend a day , at least , in fabulous, well-preserved Trier , on of Germany's oldest towns...

I'ld suggest travelling in Southern France. Just take a ton of basic stuff because it can get expensive. Other check out this article which gives great tips!! You could additionally check out Groupon too if you like saving on your trips. I have found many great trips there! Have a lovely trip
