With a mixture of large, open roads and country lanes, it’s the perfect combination of thoroughfares, providing good drivability. Your hired vehicle will be right-hand drive, meaning that you’ll be located on the left-hand side of the road. Approaching a roundabout, make sure to always give way to the right and provide an appropriate amount of stopping distance.
