If you’re into the supernatural and fancy a spook on your drive, then you are in the right place. Drivers have spotted ghosts, phantom trains, werewolves and more all over Europe.

We wanted to highlight some of the best spots for ghost hunting, in case you fancy a road trip into the unknow with your partner or friends. Whether you visit them or not, the thought of these haunted highways will give you chills.

Why visit a haunted house when you could see ghosts and ghouls from the comfort of your own car. Nothing can frighten you with the heating, radio and snack potential in a car. If you need to rent a car for a spooky drive or wouldn’t mind upgrading your own car for a few days to do so, we have the ideal protection for you. Our European excess car hire insurance will do it.
