Some of you may be taking off on holiday to Europe this summer and some of you may be driving. If that's the case, a large number of you will end up taking the ferry to France before continuing on to your holiday destination. With that in mind, here's a few tips on what you should take with you when driving in France and the rest of Europe.
You should carry the following documents:
Full, valid driving license (with paper counterpart)
Motor insurance certificate (take the original, not a copy, and make sure that your insurance coverage extends to driving in Europe too)
An International Driving Permit (if necessary)
Also, motorists in France are required by law to have the following items with them when driving:
You can pick up most of these things pretty easily at your local Halfords, auto accessory shop or, even, on Amazon.
Finally, it's a good idea to keep some spare change in Euros with you, as motorway tolls are common when driving in France and the rest of Europe.
I hope that you found these tips helpful.
