Drive legally abroad in more than 100 countries with an International Driving License (IDL) or International Driving Permit (IDP). Obtain the document, which translates your license into 10 languages, before you travel abroad.

Consider buying auto insurance with your car rental when travelling abroad in order to make sure you're covered under all circumstances.
