When you’re travelling abroad, there are certain documents and insurance that you must have with you. You’ll need to be able to produce these documents if you’re ever stopped by the police.
The specific documentation the police will ask for will vary per country, but the following items are essential to carry with you on any overseas touring holiday, no matter what you’re driving or towing:
For your vehicle(s)
- proof of ownership of your vehicle(s) (V5C document or VE103 if the vehicle is hired or leased)
- proof of your MOT (if the vehicle is over three years old)
- proof of insurance for your vehicle (this should be your certificate of insurance) plus a Green Card, if required. For further information on Green Card requirements, click here.
- your driving licence
- your passport
- an International Driving Permit if required
