To avoid the risk of receiving an on the spot fine when driving in popular European destinations, such as France, Germany or Spain, make sure you have all the compulsory or recommended equipment, most of which are already contained in the AA Emergency Breakdown and Touring Kit or the AA Euro Travel Kit. Check the table below for the compulsory or recommended equipment you will need to drive in each country.

If your vehicle is a lease vehicle and you are planning to take it abroad you will need to obtain a VE103 Document from your leasing company, you will need to request this form in good time as at peak times it may take longer for them to process the request.

    High quality glass/polishing cloth for all bright-work.

    Dry surface use
    Used dry for removing dust and loose particles from all hard surfaces. As it is wiped over a surface it creates a static charge that attracts dirt to the cloth, the micro fibre then ‘holds’ the dirt until the cloth is washed.

    Damp surface use
    Used damp to remove heavier soiling from all hard surfaces. The micro fibres work through capillary action, drawing dirt into the cloth.
