International Driving Permit – In Which Countries Do You Need It

09.12.2015, Tip of the month

Having your International driving Permit is not necessary in all countries, but we recommend you to get it anyway, if you travel a lot, especially if you like to drive – your own, rented or borrowed cars while abroad.

Oh, right! What International Drivers Permit actually is:

International drivers permit (or IDP in short) is a UN sanctioned document that translates your driving classification into nine different languages and is a requirement for renting a car in many countries. Also fees for driving without IDP can be pretty high, so don’t gamble with the money you allocated for the holidays.
