A Carnet De Passage is not required for entry.

Foreign Motor Vehicle Insurance

Insurance is required in Europe to legally drive on the roads, you can purchase Frontier insurance which covers you for all EU states at the minimum level required by law. Average cost is around €150 per month for third-party liability only.

Travel Insurance

We would strongly recommend a Travel insurance policy for travel in North America due to the high cost of medical services in the region. Read more about North America Travel Insurance.

Booking

We recommend booking North American services to Europe 2-3 months before departure due to the high volume of cargo on this route. To obtain a quote please complete our online quotation form.
