Driving in Europe

If you're planning on driving in Europe, we are pleased to help. At the time of writing (January 2020) the future rules surrounding driving in Europe on a UK Driving Licence are still being negotiated by HM Government.

During the transition period, which expires at the end of 2020, the usual rules will apply. UK citizens must check and stay up to date with the latest advice, and plan accordingly.

We also need to know in advance if you're planning to take our hire vehicle abroad. This is to ensure we equip you with the correct documentation such as a Vehicle on Hire Certificate (VE103B). If you're travelling under our insurance cover we'll also need to furnish you with a Green Card and details of breakdown cover. Once everything is in place, we'll authorise your hire vehicle in our systems for travel in the agreed countries.
