For a successful process, make sure all the necessary documents are in your name as it appears on your ID. Bring with you a valid driver’s license issued in English or accompany a non-English license with an international driving permit. For instance, you may not need an IDP for the United Kingdom if your DL is US-based but you must present your passport at the rental desk. However, to drive across the channel by ferry or shuttle, you will need an IDP. Similarly, you must have it in days of heightened security checks.
