We’ll send you a voucher close to the time you collect the car which will include everything you need to find your pick-up location.
Once you’ve booked your car hire through Thomas Cook, there are a few requirements to always be aware of, including:
Before travelling always make sure your driving licence is valid and that you have all parts of it together. You may also need an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive in your destination, so make sure you check this before you travel.
Depending on the country you’re driving in, you’ll legally have to carry certain items in your car. Check what these are before you travel and make sure you have in the car at all times when driving. This also applies to the local laws for, which side of the road to drive on, speed limits and drink driving limits. Make sure you’re familiar with all the rules before you travel.
Things can sometimes get confusing when driving a car abroad, so it’s important to get up to speed with the local road signs and how they may differ from those at home before you jump in the car.
When making your booking to hire a car with Thomas Cook, make sure you contact the DVLA to generate a check code. You can apply over the phone or online live for 21 days.
