Considering Car/Vehicle trade-Exchange?

If you are considering swapping cars, boats, ski-doo's etc always check with your insurance company that your guests will be covered in the unfortunate event of something going wrong. There are some countries that are fine for occasional guest drivers to use vehicles, especially if the guest has a driving licence from the same country. Others countries  are less helpful, as an example most British car insurance companies will have options like ‘any driver over 25’ but those driver need to have UK licences, adding drivers to the insurance is sometimes an option but again not always acceptable from a different country.

When considering the driving option in a foreign country consider the usual differences, outside of North America most cars are not automatic, this can be a major problem if not used to using a car with gears.

Make sure you look though different traffic signals and laws.

In some countries there are obvious local ways of driving; sometimes it is safer to drive like a local even when it does not seem the safest option.

With the ease of the internet, it is easy to find out about local driving ways.

When renting a car, typically it is cheaper to pre book a car online, always read the small print carefully. Car rentals are notorious for not having clear pricing policies.
