Britons travelling to Florida for the Easter holidays no longer need an international Driving Permit (IPD) to drive on the state's roads, according to today's press reports.
The law which required drivers to have an IPD has been overturned and a UK Driving licence should once again be sufficient.
However, Rosie Sanderson, head of AA International Travel, speaking to the Daily Mail, warned that car hire companies are insurance companies can still impose their own terms and conditions and recommend that travellers should still check with their car provider and insurance company prior to travel.
An IDP lasts for 12 months and holidaymakers can apply for it at their local post office for £5.50. Some countries require drivers to have the document, however, in the United States, British holidaymakers have always been able to present their UK licence.
