Article by Ken Peterson







In the era of low cost has made it easier and more frequent trips there is still lovers plan their holidays with the following car. It will be for the sake of stopping when you want it, you have more freedom to bring a little home, the Italians moving car are not so few. We therefore review the rules for travel in Europe without thinking, not only by car.

First, I remind you that a driver’s license issued in an EU country is valid throughout the EU. In some countries you must also bring with it the book of registration of their vehicle.

In any EU country travel, your car insurance policy will automatically provide the minimum cover required by law civil liability: The Green Paper is an international certificate of insurance that allows a vehicle to enter and travel in a foreign country being in compliance with the obligation to have RCA -liability insurance required in the country visited.

However, if you are covered against all risks you will need to make sure that the coverage extends to traveling in other countries. The form of an accident report of an incident CAI has value instead of all EU countries and Switzerland. The same rules regarding the use of safety belts that both the front and back of the vehicle, as it is banned in all EU countries to use the phone at the wheel.

The payment of tolls in operation in other countries such as Austria, France, Greece, Ireland, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Hungary. As for the nearby Austria you will need to purchase and display a clearly visible mark on the vehicle toll purchased at all border crossings with Austria or at service stations and similar system for the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. If you decide to reach an EU country by air and then rent a car you remember that there are no age limits, which are not fixed at EU level, which can vary between 20 and 23 years.

Turn Europe is today much more simple: the single currency has simplified payments abroad and especially with the Treaty of Schengen borders have been abolished so that no control of documents and free movement for citizens of member states. The countries, who participate fully, are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, plus Iceland and Norway are not EU members.

The 10 countries that joined the EU in 2004 do not yet participate fully in Schengen: then you will need a passport or identity card valid for travel to those countries, including Ireland and the United Kingdom do so despite EU since 1973.

Of course it is always advisable and prudent as well as necessary if you travel with a non-type your boat, train or plane, have with them the identity card or passport, that if you go non-EU countries has the obligation of the stamp.

As for the money you remember that, although part of the EU Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia (until December 31, 2009), Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Sweden and the United Kingdom, have its own currency.

Traveling can happen to need a doctor or a check in the hospital: as an EU citizen you are entitled to free health care or as the case by paying a ticket, mind you if you’re in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland.

Across Europe, the supply voltage of electrical equipment is 230 volts, with a frequency of 50Hz. In Cyprus, Ireland, Malta and the United Kingdom have square three-pin sockets, while the other EU countries have taken the classic two-point round.

Finally, in any EU country to contact the emergency services there the same number: 112. Europe proves to be one united country even in times of need.
