Taking your LeasePlan vehicle abroad
Prior to travelling, you will need to ensure you have appropriate paperwork to comply with European legislation. You will require written authorisation from the registered owner - known as a letter of authority and a VE103.
This must be done at least 2 weeks prior to travel.
You will need to take copies of these with you. A fee may be charged for obtaining foreign travel vehicle documents to cover the supply and administration required.
Check that you have fully comprehensive insurance. This is essential for all drivers, whether you are travelling for business or pleasure.
Our driver checklist has some handy tips to help make sure you have everything you need which can be found below.
We appreciate that plans can change at the last minute - and drivers may not be able to provide 2 weeks notice. If this is the case we will do our best to assist. You can complete the form to request urgent documents or contact a member of our Foreign Travel team on the DriverLine.
