    I have been reading the information that Tonka has provided about the route to Benidorm which has been very helpful .Can you tell me how many days it takes you to get there non toll road from Calais.I do not mind long hours driving.

    I can do it with two overnights. One in France, north of Bordeaux area? Then northern Spain's Navarra area. Pointless hanging about in winter:)

    We get an evening tunnel crossing and stay somewhere south of Calais. Im not including that, its just how the cheap frequent traveler scheme works.

    We would spend a week just doing 200 miles a day. Why go like a headless chicken all the time. We once spent 30 days getting to Beni and 2 weeks getting back. So much better to see things as you go.

    Don't forget most won't go to Africa this year so Benidorm could be busy although for some reason there are always spare pitches near me lol

    My usual trip are based on winter ie November or January travelling. With just one driver and short daylight hours I
    Fit my stops around that, another factor is that I like to get the cheaper evening crossing.
    Every trip is different so build it around how you feel.. As an ex trucker ( years ago ) I have no problem doing long driving days but have to consider the passenger :)
    Last month (August) we drove until 9-10pm at night but had long stops in the day so grandkids could play, go swimming etc..

    Thanks for all the replies. I am due to go in December so thanks for the info. I always seem to end up on a toll road when in France so if anyone can give me a route non toll with stops and keep me off the tolls I would really appreciate it.
