So I'm off on my holidays in a few weeks time and need a European travel kit for my car. I've shopped around on google and found most of them to be more than £40.

This kit is currently less than half price on Amazon so a super hot deal as far as I'm concerned!

Original price is £35.95!!

Apparently you need a high visibility vest for everyone in the car - any links to buy the extra vests please?

good value, but dont you need a spare bulb kit too for France?

Don't need a vest for everyone.
Bulb kit recommended, not mandatory.

Biggest thing to remember is to turn off camera detection from sat-nav, potential 1500 euro fine.

Wow 1500 euro's, that wouls counter any saving made in this bundle! Good tip jcodonne

Pathetic laws.

Absolute retardation.

Unfortunately our main source of info is from the likes of the AA, RAC, Halfords and the ferry companies - who all like to spread misinformation to sell more of their products.

for example, their is no mention of extra vests for passengers here French Official Admin site



As pointed out the Vienna Convention should mean that the local laws do not apply to foreign registered cars - though I would not be confident that you would get anywhere arguing the point with the local gendarmerie.

You don't need a breathalyser for France or anywhere in the EU. (it is spelt with an 's', we're not fully US as yet).
