I wonder how many of us do all these things?

I generally do 9 of the 10. I have never (even thought of) getting an international drivers license. Then again, I don't care to drive in a foreign country if I'm only visiting (too many different laws to worry about).

I would not do that either. But lots of people do rent cars in foreign countries. We have only done that in the Bahamas. My daughter has an international license.

I do most of them. I did not know there was an international driving permit. Learn something new everyday.

8-9 out of the 10 are on our standard checklist. I would rather drive in Boston than give international driving a go... and that's saying something.

No international driver's license.

The only thing I would add regarding the bringing of required medicines, if it is a prescribed narcotic (such as Oxycodone, percoset etc.) make sure it is in the prescription bottle. Many passengers take their meds in those weekly boxes (the ones that have Monday - Sunday individual containers) and without the prescription to go along with them, it could be deemed illegal if you don't have the script to show they are your prescribed meds. ALSO, try not to buy your meds overseas in places like Mexico. Many do this to save money but the meds can be out of date and weaker regardless of the expiration date on the bottle.

thanksfor adding this advice. It is important to do this. Gloria

I don't have an International driver's License, either. I don't drive in foreign countries so I don't need one. Usually we go on organized shore excursions or do independent sightseeing using mass transportation or just walk around the city or town.
