There is no common legal standard and in most countries also no common obligation to have them with you - provided that you do not drive on a road that explicitly requires them. Those however are normally only mountain passes, not highways. There is generally a rule that you are only allowed to drive with chains on 100% snow-covered roads so you do not ...

Winter-Equipped Cars in EU This page provided by Europcar is one of the few centralised information sources I could find on the topic. I also found this tool from Continental, allowing you to mouse-hover over different countries to check for regulation. Bulgaria Quoting from Europcar: There is no legal requirement for the use of snow tires. You ...

EU Licence Plates The EU countries now have new registration plates incorporating the country code and the EU flag on the left. This voids the need for the former oval sticker, enforced by the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic. Quoting from the "Council Regulation (EC) No 2411/98 of 3 November 1998 on the recognition in intra-Community traffic of the ...

The key limit is three months. It has nothing to do with Schengen but is part of general EU law. As such, it also applies outside the Schengen area (i.e. to the UK, Ireland, Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia – and to Switzerland through a distinct agreement that was implemented even before the country became part of the Schengen area). Even in countries ...

In general as a EEA national, you have the right to stay in all EEA countries, no matter how long if fulfilling certain conditions. However some countries ask you to report your stay, even if it is shorter than 3 months. As a general rule in the EU the same requirements apply to citizens of those countries as well. These countries according to the EU job ...

There are daily flights to/from Copenhagen and less frequently to/from Keflavik, Bergen and Billund. However, they are probably already fully booked for the days near the eclipse ... Your best bet may be to find a dedicated eclipse tour with a ...

I think that you don't need such a sticker in Europe if the sign of the country is incorporated into the registration plate. The Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, Article 37 says: Every motor vehicle in international traffic shall display at the rear, in addition to its registration number, the distinguishing sign of the State in which it is ...

First a brief description of the rules in the three countries you intend to visit: In Germany, it's only mandatory to have winter tires (or all-seasons tires with the “M+S” symbol) if there is snow or ice on the road, not during the whole winter season. In France, there is no general obligation to have winter tires but on some (mountain) roads snow chains ...

You can often rent snow chains from automobile clubs (e.g. ADAC in Germany, or ÖAMTC in Austria). So if you know that you will not need them again it might be cheaper to rent than to buy. This assumes of course that you will return in order to give them back.

Not anymore. Now you'd have to sell a blue auto... Nowadays you can buy a heck of jeans of various quality everywhere, from marketplaces to supermarkets. The prices in, for example, Poland, are much lower than in Germany, so you'd have more luck selling your jeans in Germany... Before the 1990s the situation was completely different. Almost everything was ...

It appears that you are a US citizen and are trying to bring her here to visit. My understanding is that this is basically impossible, they are going to assume your intent is to bring her in without the delays of the K-1 visa process.

Wikipedia reports that the system is currently in use in Germany, the Netherlands and in the UK. So your TSA-locked luggage can possibly be opened with the master key/code at Heathrow. But like Mark and Rory explained, I am not aware of any requirement to leave your luggage open (or to use a special system to make sure it can be opened for inspection) so a ...
