ID Requirements When Traveling in Europe

Are you aware of the passport requirements in Europe to be used as a form of identification? In the U.S., when asked for a form of identification, a majority of the time we will present our driver’s license. But what happens when we are asked to present a form of identification while in Europe?

The author explains “There are some times you will need your passport in Europe, regardless. Checking into a hotel, for example, and flying between countries. You’ll also need to show your passport when renting a car, in addition to your drivers license. Because most Western European countries are Schengen zone members, you don’t need to show it when crossing the border. Exceptions include crossing into Switzerland or Croatia by land/sea, or flying into Ireland or the U.K.”.
