My brother is ill so I need to go to the UK. I have lived in France for 20 years and have a left-hand drive car. I haven't driven in the UK for 20 years. I am 71 years old - but not yet gaga. I will need a car in the UK - my brother lives in a place which is poorly served by public transport and he will not be able to drive his car for many, many months, and he doesn't have friends around who can drive. Should I drive there in my car or fly there and use his car? Which is worse - the long drive from near Geneva to Shropshire in my own car or flying there and trying to drive around in his car? My car is an auto - his car is a manual.
Thanks to everyone who responded. You have helped me me decide what to do. And, a little research has shown me that renting an automatic in the UK is more than twice as expensive as renting a manual. So I will go in my own car.
