Traveling Without Reservations

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my sixteen year old daughter to Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Italy form June 8 - June 28. We're renting a car and I've only made hotel reservations at one hotel that I really want to visit. I'm doing the car and no reservations to be flexible. My thinking was that there had to be something available if we weren't too picky. I've driven in Europe before (1995) and was planning to park in the big cities and use public transport while visiting them. i like the idea of being able to travel off the beaten path. My brother thinks I'm crazy not to make reservations. Others have told me I'm nuts to drive. I hate to be locked into places where we decide we would rather not stay. Does anyone have any advice for traveling without reservations and for traveling by car?
