Are you planning on renting a car during your trip overseas? You need to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) before you go.
Why Do I Need an International Driving Permit?
It is illegal to drive without a valid license and automobile insurance in most countries. However, many countries do not recognize a US driver’s license. Luckily, about 150 countries consider an International Driver’s Permit to be a valid form of identification when operating a motor vehicle. This document contains your name, photo, and driver information. It also translates your information into 10 different languages, which is a great assistance if you do not speak the local language.
