I can remember having to apply for free green cards before, and we must have been in the common market then too I reckon

What? ..................I'm not interested in the politics of it.

We have been in the eu since early 70's, we still had to get an IDP & green card until relatively recently. Whatever applies to us, will also apply to the people from Europe coming here. Doesn't make much sense....to me.

As Axa said, 'to their knowledge'. So we don't really know yet. And even if going back to temporary Green Cards again is necessary, they'll soon get tired of the extra paperwork. We'll need yet another agreement!  :180:

Yes, I member the Green Card requirement, when travelling with parents, back in the late 60s/early 70s.

They still drive on the wrong side of the road, so it shouldn't really have ever stopped  :087:

Best keep an eye on what paperwork will be required. We have two Euro trips planned for this year, don't want a last minute panic, I really can't see anything changing immediately the eegits agree on sumert.

We only started Euro touring after the kids got to an age when they could be left to trash the place while we were away. This was mid 90's, green cards were still issued then, I remember few years later phoning for one & being told, "You don't need a green card anymore, all the countries you're covered for are now on the back of your certificate". The RAC said we needed the IDP back then, that fizzled out soon after & only applied to non EU countries. Of course that may all be bollux, info' was all a bit vague, much of it conflicting.

Been nice & easy in recent years, mostly down to the Euro money, pre 2000 it was a real pita getting cash as we entered each country then getting rid of it as we left, six countries on route to Italy. Sometimes just for one night, nothing planned.

I'm planning to be riding around France, Germany and Luxembourg twice this year, in May and Sept.
Hoping there'll be something sorted by then, particularly the strikes on the French side coming home!
Bearing in mind the queues of trucks: I looked up filtering in France - I'd not been aware of this in France previously:
