Luxembourg

With land borders with France, Belgium and Germany, Luxembourg has for long been at the heart of the European Union. This tiny "Grand Duchy" has a population just under half a million people, but an influence in Europe out of all proportion to its size.

Driving on the right hand side of the road may be a new experience for some visitors as may well be the use of kilometres to measure distance - one good thing about using a rental car is that it will be adapted to local conditions with the steering on the left hand side and the speedometer marked in kilometres per hour.

The availability of rentals cars is very good throughout Luxembourg and there is usually no problem in arranging for a hire car to be left at a different location from where it was originally rented.

The speed limits in Luxembourg are:

On Motorways the limit is 120 kilometres per hour. This equates to about 75 miles per hour. On other roads not showing any lower restriction the limit is 90 kilometres per hour, that's 56 miles per hour. In towns the limit is 50 kilometres per hour, or 31 miles per hour.

Drivers face severe penalties if found driving with more than 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, this is the same as the limit in Britain.

Persons under the age of 18 years are not allowed to drive in Luxembourg even though they may hold a driving licence issued in another country.

The wearing of seat belts is compulsory and children must be 10 years old or over to occupy a front passenger seat.

Before you drive away check that your hire car has a warning triangle as these are compulsory in Luxembourg.
