Though I haven't done any long distance car drives where I drove the car (have been a shotgun many times), this May I did a 2000km ride on my TVS Apache from Thane to Bangalore and then back. When going, I took a day's halt at Pune whereas on the return trip I did the entire stretch in a go excluding the butt breaks. Took me about 17 hours to do the 1000km, including breaks totaling 2 hours.

My longest drives till date:

In India: Alto LXI, Bangalore to Goa to Karwar to Bangalore. It was our 2nd Anniversary trip. In the total of around 1350 kms, the return trip from Karwar to Bangalore (around 550 to 600 kms) was almost nonstop except 2 to 3 breaks in between.

In EuroZone: BMW 320D, Germany to Netherlands to Belgium to Luxemburg to Germany. This was the loooooooongest I have done. We were 4 friends, I was the only driver. Started at 7:00 AM from the car rental unit at Germany and returned back home at 4:00 AM next day. In 21 hours, almost 18 hours we were in the car and the round trip was around 1400 kms! before 7:00 AM the next day, we had promptly returned the car too, I wouldnt say any of us were so tired. A Memorable crazy drive it was for all of us!!

Numerous trips from Bangalore to Kannur (via Virajpet 330 kms & via Bathery 390 kms) and vice versa. The last trip took around 8 hrs to complete on my choco Ritzy. Fastest lap on Mysore rd - 120 kmph; didn't intend to go faster as I had 2 kiddos in the car.

Hey Pranav, I too was thinking of doing a cross Europe road trip.
Starting at Stockholm (Coz I have relatives there) > Copenhagen > Munich > Hamburg > Amsterdam > Brussels > Paris > Bern > Geneva > Zurich > Vienna > Prague > Berlin > Copenhagen > Stockholm.

All of these are covered under the Schenegen visa.

Could you please throw some light on how much time should I take at hand for this trip? And stuff about tolls, other expenses, etc.?
Would be thankful for any kind of input.

Thanks!

@ Sugam, nice to know you are interested in a roading experience at the Eurozone. Yes, all countries that you have listed belong to the Schengen Area.

As far as I know, you will be on Tolled route in Swiss (Bern, Geneva and Zurich) which is 40 CHF flat valid for upto 1 year and Austria (Vienna) which is 8 Euros for 10 days (you might not need the yearly toll sticker here).

No Tolls at Germay (Munich, Hamburg, Paris, Parague and Berlin). Paris and Copenhagen, I am not sure as I havent tried by car.

Since you are planning Austria too, I strongly recommend you to the Grossglockner Alpine Highway, ityou will have quite an experience driving here!

Good Luck, happy revving at the Schengen Area!
