Just check your driving license and IC both got English word mean is good enough to use.

Rent in Munich,
Drive through Prague, go to Austria and back to Munich to return.
The driving is easy and perfect.
Get a auto car.

100% safe, just the plug is different.
Most hotels actually have kettle, but some don't. So yes if very important for you bring. Otherwise I think it's a bit waste of space.

thx reply. yeah it worked. had extra space in the bag and yup nod.gif some Hotel don't have.

Got one hotel Locked the Kettle in the cabinet with the "white plastic single use lock" (the ones the supermarket guard use to close your bags/handbags before you enter the supermarket"

My frens in other room cut it and found the kettle inside. I wonder why they bother to lock it like that. confused.gif

Hi, i am planning a 2 week self drive around eastern europe, namely czech, poland, hungary and slovakia.

Anyone who has done a similar trip can advise which city you flew in and out? its not economical to fly in and out from diff countries due to expensive drop off rates if you return the rental in a diff country.

I am hesitatating to use the rail as the travelling time seems to be rather long (for day trains), and am not particularly comfortable to do an overnight train either. doh.gif

For Budapest, stay on Pest side, meaning the eastern side of river. I stayed close to Ferenciek tere Metro, very good location imho. But so is more or less all of the eastern side between Petöfi hid/bridge and Margitsziget / Margit island

vignettes... oh.. the pass.
Make sure you look at sign on highway or Ask on first petrol station in the way to new country.
Czech and Austria is separate different.
