Make sure your customers are prepared for holidays

With more people travelling since Covid restrictions across the UK and much of Europe have eased, the upcoming Whitsun school holiday and Jubilee bank holidays are expected to lead to a surge of travellers heading abroad. 

Many people will be making their first overseas trip for over two years and may be unaware that some regulations having changed in that period. 

In a post-Brexit environment, having the right documents is more important than ever to ensure that your vehicles are not incurring additional fees, vulnerable to security risks, or facing being impounded overseas. It is important that all drivers taking a rented or leased vehicle abroad from the UK hold a valid VE103 certificate, demonstrating that the driver has permission to have the vehicle, in lieu of them holding the vehicle logbook. 

BVRLA members can buy VE103B certificates online and are encouraged to do so now to avoid risking their vehicles being taken abroad without the necessary paperwork. 

Members can also direct their customers to the BVRLA’s Taking a Vehicle Abroad guide, featuring links to the Government’s latest advice.
