International Driver's License

Jump to last reply

I have been strongly advised by our car rental agency, Auto Europe, to purchase an IDL prior to our upcoming trip to Spain. I have driven in Europe probably 15 times, 5 of which I purchased an IDL just to be on "the safe side." Have been stopped several times at "safety roadblocks" but don't think even then it was a problem. My question is simple, has anyone out there, for any reason, every had to produce an IDL? They are not very expensive and can be obtained without much inconvenience but I have always just wondered.

Many thanks,
