Product description

Our Driving in Europe kit has the essentials for people heading to the continent. The rules of the road are different to the UK and you’ll need to carry a few items that we don’t normally have in the car over here.

As you’ll be driving through France we’ve also included a pack of NF approved breathalysers in our kit to ensure you meet French driving requirements.

January 2013 - Drivers in France have been required to carry a self-test breathalyser since July 2012 with enforcement by fines originally planned for 1 November but subsequently postponed to 1 March 2013. Now the French government has announced that the implementation of the sanction (fine) for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely.

Which countries are covered?

The RAC European Driving Kit - Essential is suitable for driving in the following countries:

Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland

What does the Driving in Europe kit include?

The RAC Driving in Europe Kit includes the following items:

  • Warning triangle
  • GB sticker
  • Headlamp beam convertors
  • Adult high visibility vest
  • First aid kit
  • Foil blanket
  • NF approved breathalyser twin pack
  • Universal spare bulb set
  • European driving guidance leaflet

What do I need to carry in my car when driving in Europe?

It depends on which country or countries you plan to visit. We’ve put together some useful information for driving in Europe to help you plan your journey. Why not visit our Driving in Europe advice section to learn more?

Travelling with the family?

If you’re driving in Europe with the family then you should consider our Driving in Europe Family Pack which includes all the items above but also has a set of High Visibility Vests for adults and children – essential if your breakdown at the roadside.

How to position the GB sticker

We include a Euro symbol GB sticker in this pack for application to your registration plate when travelling within Europe. (Please note that when travelling outside Europe, it is a legal requirement to display an appropriate oval-shaped GB sticker.) Vehicles travelling within Europe not displaying the Euro symbol are required by law to display an oval GB sticker.

Need a few extra items?

If you need extra items for your journey we have a full range of European driving accessories. Our range includes roof bars, roof boxes, cycle racks, sat navs, road atlases, headlamp beam convertors, fire extinguishers and more.

Breath test kit I received only had 1 year before expiry. Ones I have bought previously from other companies had at least 2years. When I rang to complain I was told RAC felt that was adequate. I will not be using you again!

Kit covered everything I needed for Europe which was good and in contrast to other kits on the market however the adhesive on the light refectors fell off meaning I had to buy more. Cosnidering requesting a partial refund.

The outer-bag is of bad quality and cracked and broken on delivery. I've had to order the pack for an event and have ordered a number now, and they're all broken. A real shame and terrible quality.
