Transport needed for roadtrip! help

Hi after my a levels a few of my mates and i are planning some form of a road trip, were looking at getting a van of some sort really cheap and then driving it to its death around places maybe france.
Anyone done this before? we would rent a van but noone will rent to u21s, so primarily looking at a cheap van or people carrier and then getting like a weeks insurance and then scrapping or selling afterwards.
soo if anyone has any guidance or can give me any help then id be greatful!
Cheers Alex

Re: Transport needed for roadtrip! help

just read on google that you can drive in france at 18 but you have to have had your lisence a year,ive had it over a year so fine there, but if you bring a rental car you have to be 20 but we'll probs just buy a banger then get a weeks insurance!
