    Please all be aware the the International Driving License Permit now has to be made in person at a Post Office so you may need to fly back to the UK to renew. It also now only lasts a year and not 2.

    This beaurocratic change doesn't hit me too hard personally but it makes me angry as I feel for the people it will impact.
    Order of events: Banks lose our money -> get bailed out -> were inflating GBP to cover it -> now taxing us -> next will grab your funds direct -> things get really desperate to balance the books. What should have happened?: banks go bust and we lost our money much quicker

    Your post makes no sense at all. IDP has had a 12 month validity for as long as I've be applying for them. That's at least three years.

    Been like that since 1st February this year.

    If you're abroad that long that returning to the UK is an issue you should probably be getting a local license for wherever you are.

    Post Office website still indicates validity can be up to 3 years but is dependant on the type required for your destination. See FAQs here:

    Hi there
    We will be flying into Munich and touring around for the first week of July and need to hire a car to seat 2 adults, 2 teenagers, and luggage comfortably.
    Can someone please recommend a decent, trustworthy car hire firm for pickup and return at Munich Airport.
    Cheers

    I'm flying with my mum from Tenerife to Manchester for a wedding in June but during the week have a lot of visiting to do so a hire car should be easier.

    My mum now drives on a Spanish license so isnt comfortable driving on UK roads so wants me to drive but I dont have a credit card. We cant find any companies that will allow me as main driver with the payment in my mums name even though we will be together.

    Next problem, they're all wanting about 10 a day for me as an additional driver bumping the price up quite a bit by the end of the week. I have found one company 'Dollar' who offer one free additional driver at the price of 200 for the week with a 750 credit card deposit.

    So 2 questions, firstly does anyone have any experience of Dollar in the UK? Reviews seem pretty good but I've never heard of them. Secondly are there any tips for bringing the car hire pricing down at all? Thanks in advance!

    Cheap Car Hire
    In December I went on a UK comparison site and got a price for car rental for Cape Town. I would have had to pay up front. The car was from Bidvest, so I went on their ZA site and got a quotation, booking, pay at the end of the hire, half the price. You can even get a big discount if over a certain age. No hassles with pickup or return.

    Now I want to know, how on earth do you get 3/day in Europe (Money Tips, 21/05/19), I've never seen anything like that?
