If your dear Dad is anything like mine, post a warning on AI when he is here will you please ??

Hire him a Smart car with auto and air-con in left hand drive, he will feel really trendy and cool, and in reality will be miles away from everything cos he thinks he is in a "normal" car.

Hope this solves your dilemma,


Regards, Les

Thank you Cabbie for that, but it is for my Dad who is seventy and we had a few close calls with the left-hand drive car we hired. He thinks he will be able to judge distance from curb better with right-hand. Not sure my nerves could cope with another attempt with French car.

If you're worried about getting used to left-hand drive, try hiring an automatic, most of the hire companies do them and you don't need to worry so much about the gear stick.
