How has your experience been with Skybooker? We booked through them last year for a European road trip that was scheduled for last March/April. It took a lot of back and forth with them to finally get a full refund with no additional fees. At the start of this virus mess they wanted to give us half of our money back and charge us $50 to do so. As things got worse they finally relented to a full refund with no additional fees. I did remind them they charged us a fee when the original tickets were purchased. Although they do have an F rating with the BBB, they did give us an excellent price for main cabin, one connection flights both ways.
For us (road trip lovers), car rentals are the way to go. Driving in foreign countries is an adventure that you have to be up for. Train travel is nice but with a car you can stop where and when you want or go off on a side road that looks interesting. The few (10, I think)) towns that don't allow cars are easy enough to get to by public transportation. Of course you'll be with two teenagers so that might skew the whole car thing. Just depends on their attitude.
Hope all works out for you. We're looking at the end of September for our 2nd attempt.
