The best way to explore the charm of a vacation spot is to head out on a road trip. These days the rental services for cars are very popular. If you love driving, GPS on your car, fuel money in your wallet and your driving license are everything you need to enjoy an amazing road trip in a foreign destination. Yeah, there are several nice nations on the road that will allow you to drive with your Indian driving licence.

Although it is not necessary by law, you may bring an Foreign Driving Permit for easy inspection of your documents by local authorities. Also you can bring a translated German copy of your Indian driving license to make it easy.
