I spoke to ecartrans a couple of weeks ago about transporting a car from the South of the UK to Austria - they quoted c 1,500 plus VAT as a high-level indication - I think that was for a covered transporter and an open one was cheaper (possibly c 1,200 plus VAT but can’t remember). I need to get a car transported mid/end of March, so will firm up the quote soon (still waiting for some input on how much other stuff needs to be transported with the car).

Any other transport company recommendations would be welcome
I use these guys

Driving to Como is never that great. I think going to the Dolomites is a lot better with great roads there and back and loads of amazing passes.

If you do want to go to Como then 2 options. 1) head to Troyes (great for a stop off) then pick up the D996 (starts as D993 J23 on A5) to Dijon. This is an awesome road one of my favourites. From Dijon head to lake Annecy and stay at Les Trésoms Lake and Spa Resort. From there you can drive the top route to Como via Sion or the low route via north of Mont Blanc.

Alternatively take the fastest route to Baden-Baden and make sure to stay a few days and enjoy the thermal baths, then take the D500 Black Forest Road to the south of the black forest then make your way south to Como.

As I said I prefer to go further east now to Cortina the roads and scenery there are out of this world with my favourite passes, or keep heading south from Annecy via the Route Napoleon to Antibes where you can go to Monaco and drive the Col Turini or go west to the amazing Ardeche & Mt Ventoux.

Whatever you do don't be tempted to go through Belgium into Germany, the motorways are dire and congested. French roads are much better and the D996 worth it. Get hold of a Liber-t tag for France and sail through the tolls without stopping, always fun in a UK reg car :-)

There's a motor rail service from Dusseldorf to Verona, it would take some of the trudge out.
I took my 360 on the Dusseldorf to Innsbruck train last summer. Had about 1cm either side of the car with high metal runners either side wanting to kiss the wheels... The 488's a bit wider still, so will be even less pleasure to get on and off and might not even fit.

F THAT! I wouldn’t want the stress of doing that, it would completely stress me out and would put a downer on the trip a bit.

Thanks for the tips. We drove the Route Napoleon last summer and really enjoyed it. Didn’t like Monaco as they sat nav kept losing signal in the tunnels. We then took the motorways all the way to Como which was boring. Have the tag for the tolls which is always really useful.
