How to get your International drivers license

When traveling outside of the United States it’s usually ok to rent a car, motorcycle, vespa or ATV with your United States drivers license.  Having said that, Greece, amongst other countries has recently changed it’s laws and made it illegal for Americans and others, to rent quads, ATV’s, motorcycles and or vespas. 

If you’re already over there, you might be out of luck but if you don’t leave for a few days or weeks, we got you covered.  If you leave in a few days, just run up to your local AAA and ask for an international drivers license.  If you have a week or so, stay on your couch and order that bad boy online.  Just make sure you select B, and that goes for the walk ins as well.  

Ok, here’s your step by step process to getting your international drivers license.

1. Take a picture of yourself or have a friend do it.  White background, good lighting, no glasses or sunglasses…. Think DMV photo.  No goofy smiles or whatever just take it like your last drivers license pic, maybe even where the same shirt for good luck.

2.  Sign your name to a white piece of paper and take a photo of the signature in good lighting.  

3.  Take a photo of your current, VALID, drivers license.  

4.  Sign on to:  https://international-permit.com/en-us/idd/payment/paypal 

5.  Click “Apply” on top row 

6.  Complete information

7.  Upload your photo, signature and drivers license photo (you just took pics of these) as requested at the end of application.  

8.  Pay the fee

9.  Get your new international drivers license in the mail.

10. Go abroad and have an amazing time vespa’ing through the hills of Tuscany or ATV’ing throughout the Greek islands.  Be safe and don’t drink and drive, that’ pretty much why we need int licenses now…  And don’t stand up on your ATV in Greece, you’ll get a ticket or go to jail, no joke…   Lol.  But for real.

Where to stay in Cuba and Cuba Visa Information

Cuba is the newest destination to travel but the big questions are where to stay in Cuba and how to get a Cuba Visa

Here are a few suggestions and in Cuba I highly recommend staying at an AirB&B.   They are not only much cheaper, but they are also incredibly cleaner and a more cultural experience.  Highly recommend!

For the Cuba Visa, you can get one for  $50  through your Southwest Airline Flight, Southwest Cuba Visa Information & additional Visa Info.

Main Reasons for a Valid Cuba Visa Visit

  • Family Visit
  • Official business of he US Government
  • Journalistic Activities
  • Professional Research or meetings
  • Education activities and exchanges
  • Religious Activities
  • Public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic/other competitions or exhibitions
  • Humanitarian projects
  • *Support for the Cuban people
  • Activities of private foundations, research or educational institutes
  • Exportation, importation, or transmission of information or information material
  • Certain Authorized export transactions

It seems the safest route is supporting the Cuban people because let’s be honest, that’s pretty much what you’re most likely doing…

Now remember there are a number of items you can check off claiming the reasons you are there to to visit, ranging from Religion to a cultural experience. Whichever one you choose, be sure that when you enter back into your original country you do not slip up and say that you were there for vacation….

This is one of the most frequently asked questions I’m asked.  What is the best data and cellular option when traveling abroad in places like Europe and Asia.  The answer is simple.  Take a little extra time and go to the local cellular store, grab a chip and drop that guy in your phone.  This will save you lots of money but remember to make sure your phone is unlocked.
