IDP completely unnecessary in EU if you have a UK photo card driving licence - this info is on UKgovernment official website

I've still got the old green paper driving license!  Too tight to pay £20.  I was going to wait until I was 70 but looks like I may have to pay the £20.  Over the years I have presented this license at various car hire companies abroad and never had a problem.

Are we actually going to be allowed to travel to Spain ?? 

We went down to Spain for the day on Monday, to celebrate my birthday.  We drove through the border which was as normal - no border.  We did some shopping,  had lunch, drove into a cork oak forest and had a coffee overlooking a 360 degree view of both countries.  Then we drove  to the sea at Cadaques and had a paddle,  and an ice cream on the Spanish side.  Back via the coast road into France.  No one checked our licence, our Covid status, or anything else, and there were no border staff to be seen.

Your earlier post Mr Mod!

 

Sorry, I've confused Val with the OP - Sorry Wisp Man.
