International Driving Permits

Your driving licence will be honoured in most countries, however there are countries where non-local Driving Licences (in different languages or particularly in languages using different alphabet structures) are not accepted.


Europcar recommends you carry an International Driving Permit.


  • An IDP is written in 10 languages and serves as an officially recognised translation of your local driving licence in over 150 participating members of the United Nations.


  • Your IDP should always be accompanied by your valid local driving licence.


  • The UN itself does not issue driving permits, but uses authorised travel
