Like Rob, included in my insurance (Carole Nash). Breakdown/ accident recovery and medical repat up to 90 days in Europe. Worth thinking of though for those coming along.

Also make sure your insurance is fully valid in Europe. Some policies only give you 3rd party cover outside the UK.

Yep I have got the insurance through Carole Nash also, seems a very good insurance policy.

Just to add that if your are going to go for a Europe or around the world trip in the future it makes it a lot cheaper to get the 90 day one as the other guys have said. If like me you cannot do without a bike when the sun shines in sunny Greece, this is the only and best option for you.

Simplest answer, yes. Always advisable to carry as much paperwork as poss to minimise the fook up factor.

I always have, Log Book, Licence (if you have the new photo one you need the bit of paper that I beleieve accompanies them), and Insurance certificate with me. (Plus of course passport, even though theoretically you do not need it in the EU, it makes life a lot simpler.)

I believe a Goldfish has a memory retention of 2 seconds, that is why they don't get bored swimming around their bowls. Perhaps a new nickname is in order?

Not true!!! You'll need some form of identification in the Netherlands!!
Since january 1th 2005 you must be able to identify yourself. Our drivers licence can be used for that, but I'm not so sure an English license is valid for identification over here!!!

Bring your passport guys!! :lol:

Quite right Ansoc, poor use of English on my part. WHat I meant is that you do not strictly need a passport to travel around the EU, ( even though you will be asked for your passport coming in and out of the UK) BUT you do need to be able to identify yourself (and Evel that does not mean looking in a mirror and saying, Yep that's me).

As we don't have any kind of I.D cards the best solution is to carry your passport with you at all times.

Also worth mentioning for UK travellers, the EHIC. European Health Insurance Card.
These have replaced the old E111 forms to get assistance from EU state hospitals.
They are free :clap: and here is a link to the DEpartment of Health web site, with info and how to obtain one.

Worth having.

I got one of those cards over the Net Doug and only took 2 days to get here and of course they are free, no p&p charges :)
