    Things to take with you - important

    There are lot of new people coming this year, so I thought it may be wise to post up a thread on things to take on the trip:

    Passport
    Print out of tunnel/ferry booking
    Print out of hotel booking
    Driving Licence
    Insurance cover note or certificate
    GB or Euro stickers on car or numberplate
    Sat Nav with euro maps or at least a european road map (you may get lost so dont just depend on the people in front)
    Mobile + charger (set up euro/international roaming if not already done !)
    Money for the show - Its 10 euros to get in
    Petrol money
    Beer money
    Camera + memory card/s + batteries !

    Very Important you have to have these in the car:

    - Warning triangle
    - Visibility vest for every person in the car
    - Fire extinguisher
    - Head light beam convertors

    Halfords do sets cheap if you dont already have them


    I know some of it is obvious but I thought it may help.
