Right I've been intouch about some accomadation for the rd trip,,and we are going to be staying at the same place in Holland again this place...there will be about 14 places for the log cabins,more then that and you might have to be in a tent....

http://www.barendonk.nl/index-uk.php?page=...mp;lang=english

I've still got to book a nights stay in Germany and France but I'm onto that now..

Il be booking the accomadation very soon,,i will require a £50 deposit from each person going,I'm afraid this deposit will NOT be refundable so you need to be 110% sure you can do this...

Over on polo3 il be starting a list so if you wanna be part of this amazing experience then get your name down...

A few dates to put in your diary :rolleyes: we get the ferry Thursday 11th April 2013,,arrive in Holland Friday 12th then stay over till Monday 15th ,,drive to Germany where we stay over for a night till 16th,,then travel back through europe and stay a night in France till 17th,,then ferry back to the UK...

Thank you

I know a few people have been on about doing a bit of a European trip so this would be ideal. Especially as it includes a trip to Wolfsburg

Me and the misses are still planning on going. So come on guys it will be good to get a few more of the RHD polo's over there!!

Nice to see some interest :-D ,,I've a few updates to let you know...

The accomadation in Holland is this place http://www.barendonk.nl/index-uk.php?page=...mp;lang=english a really nice place to stay,,i can book 4 of the camping cottages 2x 4 persons 2x 5 persons,,so theres up to 18 spaces in the cottages and a few have already been taken,,there is also plenty of camping space if you fancy a tent,well once the 18 places have been taken you might have to bring a tent.

Where now looking at spending an extra day and night in Wolfsburg,because we have to leave the camping cottages in Holland by 11 am its then a 4 an half hours drive to Wolfsburg,,,so realistically it doesnt really give us much time to enjoy Wolsfburg as we start the journey back early the next day so now we can stay an extra day and night so where not just doing a quick dash there..but at the mo I'm still trying to source some cheap accomadation in the area,and also accomadation in France..

If you do fancy going heres some info that maybe of use to you:-

So if your 18 and over and hold a full UK driving license then you can drive in Europe,,also you must check with your insurance that you are covered to drive in Europe,cause if you dont inform them then your insurance is invalid,and you must carry all your car paper work..

Holland Age to drive is 18 years old

Germany Age to drive is 18 years old

Belgium Age to drive is 18 years old

France Age to drive is 18 years old

http://www.2pass.co.uk/ages.htm

Driving abroad in Europe also requires you to carry certain equipment..

Self Breathalyzer kit (France only)

Red warning triangle

First Aid kit

Fire Extinguisher

Viz Jacket

Light converter kit/spare bulbs

GB sticker

Some prices from when i went in April..It wont be cheap,,i suggest you get someone to share the trip with you,,especially as the ferry is based on 2 people in a car...the trip just gone cost me £150 for the ferry (i shared with my m8 so thats £75 each) thats from Hull to Rotterdam then back Calais to Dover,,cost me about £130 in fuel (again shared that with my m8) but that wasnt going to Germany so that could rise a fair bit...the log cabins are £12.50 per night per person,and these are 4/5 sharing a log cabin also an extra 3 night accomadation around europe,,,then theres spending money i took 300 euro's,,but i came home with near 100 euro's...

Remember these prices will change by next year and will also change if you fancy doing this as a rd trip over or planning just the day over for the event,,just another thing to if your doing this as the full rd trip where planning on starting the rd trip from Hull as this has the over night trip over to Rotterdam,if you cant make Hull there is other ferry ports that will go to Rotterdam but these do the day trip if you dont fancy the night trip,so you may have to sort an extra night in Holland depends which day you leave..if you'd like to do the rd trip i will require a non refundable deposit of £50,as this will be securing your accomadation so you need to be 110% sure you wanna do this....

Also if you come in a car thats not mk1,mk2 mk2f polo you will be shown a different car park :lol:

Il post more info as it happens

Thanks :-D

wow! this is very interesting sounds like an awesome trip.

I'm going to do some research and see if i can make it but because i live in london il probably go from dover on the train ( not ferry i get sea sick lol )

iv never driven abroad so have no idea what i need to do!! for someone driving abroad for first time on foreign roads whats it like?

will keep an eye on the topic - if there is anyone else going from london let us know and maybe go together or sort something out

When we went as a group none of us had driven abroad before,,but to be fair after 5 mins you get use to it :-D

Been doing more research in accomadation in Wolfsburg and near Calais and tbh its hard trying to find anything like log cabins etc,and Hotels will be expensive,,so I've been looking into Hostels and found theres 1 in Wolfsburg and 1 in Boulogne that would be ideal for groups,,so I'm just finding out more details about them then il let you know on all the accomadation for the rd trip...

I've also recieved 6 Deposits so far on Polo3 so thats there accomadation sorted for the rd trip,,and theres only a certain amount of cabin space available for Holland and i have to book the cabins soon or i may lose them,,so you dont have long to decide

Right then guys for those who fancy doing this I've got a deadline date,I've been speaking to the owners of the log cabins in Holland and I've got to have the cabins booked by the 15th December..so remember if you fancy doing the rd trip then you've got to have paid your Deposit before that date,il only be booking cabins for those who have paid,,if you want to go after that date you probably wont get a cabin,but most likely get a tent pitch instead..

15th December :-D

Thats it Pete,,you need to be 110% sure that you and your polo can do this trip,,,its a massive commitment but it will be worth every second of it..

Remember you dont have to do the full trip,if you just want to do the 86c polo treffen event then i can still sort out your accomadation in Holland,,,theres 6 weeks before i start booking things and we could really do with some more UK polo enthusiasts to get involved in this....so come on you guys :-D
