If you have ever traveled to the Balearic Islands or the Canary Islands, the idea of going with your own car by ferry has likely crossed your mind, something that you have surely discarded.
If, on the other hand, you have bought a vehicle in the United States, the most normal thing is that, for economic reasons, you have sent it to Spain by ship, with the corresponding weight. But what about transporting cars by plane? It’s a doable thing that Gumball 3000 participants recently did.
It is not something cheap, and we can corroborate it with information on the transport of vehicles by plane collected by the British newspaper Daily Mail.
The wealthiest Arabs habit spending part of their vacation period in London, but without renting a Peugeot 308.
