Overseas Travel
Keeping you on the road throughout continental Europe

Driving in Europe

In most cases, Ogilvie Fleet is the registered owner of the vehicle you drive. Therefore if you’re planning on taking our vehicle abroad you will require a form to prove to local authorities that you have our consent to take the vehicle out of the UK.

The form you require is called a Vehicle on Hire Certificate (VE103B). You can apply by downloading this form, complete it by typing into the appropriate fields, then email the completed form to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please contact your Fleet Manager prior to completing this form as there will be a charge to you or your company for this service. Please also allow up to 14 days for us to process this form as failure to provide the original VE103B document whilst abroad may result in either a fine or the vehicle being impounded. Photocopies and fax documents are frequently not accepted by foreign authorities.

On successful completion of the Vehicle on Hire Certificate the vehicle will also be covered by RAC European Cover which gives you the peace of mind should you be unfortunate enough to require roadside assistance.

The RAC European Cover guide will be sent with your certificate but can also be downloaded by clicking here.

Whilst driving abroad

Some countries impose legal requirements with regard to certain equipment that the driver or vehicle should carry whilst driving abroad. Our Travel Abroad Checklist can be used as a guide for what equipment or documentation is required. Please note that whilst reasonable care is taken to ensure this document is accurate, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. Legislation can change on a daily basis and it is the drivers' responsibility to make sure they fully adhere to the current requirements imposed by each country.

If the country you intend to visit is not on the Travel Abroad Checklist please contact Ogilvie Fleet prior to travelling on 0330 333 5678.
