    TRAVEL SERVICES INTERNATIONAL DRIVER'S PERMIT

    What is an International Driving Permit?

    An International Driving Permit is the correct title for what is commonly referred to as an international drivers license. It is basically a translation of your own drivers license into the most common languages in the world, including German, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian. It is not a stand alone document, as it is only accepted with your original license. The International Drivers Permit can be extremely helpful in the event that you are pulled over for a traffic infringement, or you need extra identification for any reason. If the person asking for your IDP doesn't speak a word of English, having an international drivers license will tell them what your license says about you - sometimes allowing you to avoid delays or other issues while traveling abroad.

    Where can I get an International Drivers Permit?

    There are currently only two places that are authorized to sell International Drivers Permits. They can be obtained from AAA or the National Automobile Club. There are many places online that offer them, but the two providers listed here are the only two authorized by the US State Department to issue them. If you are planning on traveling to Europe, it is extremely helpful to obtain one, and the cost is low - you can expect to pay little more than $15 for an international drivers license. In some locations it is mandatory to carry an IDP in order to rent a car. There are also instances where you can be fined for not having one should you be pulled over by the police. Contact Auto Europe to find out if carrying an international drivers license is mandatory for your particular car rental by calling us at 1-888-223-5555.
