Renting a car in Europe

I’ve never rented a car in Europe. It’s expensive and intimidating, and I love riding trains between towns and walking within a city anyway. In Portugal, I got a tour of the Douro Valley by hiring a car and driver for a day. But some classic European trips that demand a car are calling to me – the Croatian coast, the Irish countryside, Italy’s Amalfi Coast – so I’ve started doing research. I found a good starting point in this column by Rick Steves.

That sounds very adventurous! That aside, it does make a lot of sense to read the road rules and whatnot before hitting the road there. That way, we can familiarize ourselves in the way we're familiar with the roads back home.
