Driving Abroad

  • A U.S. driver’s license is not recognized in many countries. Most countries accept an international driving permit. Obtain your permit through Automobile Association of America (AAA) or the American Automobile Touring Alliance.
  • Many U.S. car insurance policies do not provide full coverage abroad. Consider purchasing the rental car company’s insurance.
  • Be aware that traffic laws vary from country to country.
  • Bring street maps.
  • Bring a child safety seat if you need one.
