    Most Distance Travelled By Car In One Day

    done the Dieppe run from Toulouse and vice versa quite a few times,only one way mind,which is around 600 miles

    last week I travelled to Nantes and back in the same day,clocking up around 660 miles

    thinking this is probably the most I've ever done in a day

    but to my surprise,Brighton to Newcastle and back is a staggering 690 miles!

    what's your record?

      Back in the days when I was a fisherman we were having a crew change. I was on the boat in a tiny harbour just below Cape Wrath called Kinlochbervie and the lads coming up to change over hired a tiny car (may have been a Ka) drove from Bournemouth to KLB and we managed to get it back again with 10 minutes to spare out of the 24 hours they’d hired it for. The bloke at Hertz couldn’t believe the tiny car he’d given out the day before had just come back with 1500 miles added to the clock.

      Apart from that, overnight from Marseille to Calais to get a 7am ferry after England vs Tunisia in the WC.

      Drove from Brighton to Inverness and back. Not sure how many miles but it took all day and returned at 6am

      Riyadh to Damascus about 1,000 miles in under 24 hours with naps and two borders but started at 10pm so technically over 2 days. Very little traffic on road. Had a danger w*** at 70mph out of boredom.

      Family holiday to Bayeux. Driving back to Calais. 327km.

      Roughly 10km from Calais we had a call from the hotel to say we’d left our passports there.

      So the 300km trip 3 times, and then Dover to Brighton. 1000km, so about 600 miles.

      Sharjah, U.A.E. to Doha, Qatar and then back to Dubai, in 1978. We were moving house but when we got to the border with Doha they wouldn't let us in as our paperwork for the car was not in order so we had to turn round and go back to Dubai. Best part of 1,400 km in one day, with a car full of furniture and pets! Mainly desert roads in those day as well.
