The Dos and Don’ts of Driving Abroad

Guide to Taking Your Car Abroad

The summer holidays are here and if you are planning a trip abroad, either with your own car or hiring one when you get there, make sure you are prepared and understand the rules so that you drive safely and legally.

The CLM Guide to Taking Your Car Abroad has been updated.

We’ve ordered the guide according to a timeline so you can see what you need to prepare in advance, make sure you have before you travel, and consider once you arrive at your destination.

There are a number of tips for travellers, including information about clean air schemes in France and Germany. You also need to be aware of new style cameras in some countries which not only monitor speeding but can also identify if you are wearing your seat belt, can detect a driver using a mobile phone and also capture illegal or dangerous driving.

You can also download a handy PDF summary guide and checklist to make sure you have everything ticked off before your trip!
