INTERNATIONAL DRIVERS PERMIT – HOW QUICK CAN I GET ONE!

Interesting one here Mat

Customer booking a vehicle for collection at Heathrow Airport flying in from Kenya did not realize that he required an International Drivers permit to rent a vehicle in the UK, for clarification when hiring a vehicle in the UK anyone holding a license from anywhere outside of the European Union must present the license from their own country and a valid international driving permit / license, people can be confused as they are permitted to drive in the UK without the international license, but not to hire a car.

This customer actually went away and with’in the hours obtained one, which the quickest turnaround time that I have ever seen :-)

I know we have some information surrounding this, but it is still something that people get caught out with, so the more information we can put out there the better.

Need any clarification please let me know.

Thanks,

Matt.
