    This year I've had a couple of enquiries from adventurous people who wanted to venture further afield to the Middle East. It is not for the faint hearted but if you are interested the following info will help you on the way.

    CARNET DE PASSAGE EN DOUANES
    A Carnet de Passage en Douanes is an internationally recognised Customs document entitling the holder to TEMPORARILY import a vehicle duty-free into countries, which normally require a deposit against import charges for such vehicles (generally countries outside Europe).

    Some folks are under the impression the Carnet de Passage also covers the vehicle insurance, this is not so. You will still need a Green Card or buy third party cover at the border.


    INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATE FOR MOTOR VEHICLES
    Best described as a vehicle passport, the International Certificate for Motor Vehicles (ICMV) is provided by the AA or the RAC. The ICMV is valid for one year and provides the registration document information in a slightly different format. And in a range of languages and scripts.

    INTERNATIONAL DRIVING PERMIT
    If you're planning to drive a car abroad you'll need an International Driving Permit (IDP) for certain countries. This is in addition to your UK driving licence - which you also need to take with you if you're driving and/or hiring a car abroad.

    Safe travelling.
