Help Confused with all info

Hi every one,

Hope someone can help. I'm confused with how to find information on here.

Basicly I need to know what paperwork I need to travel in Europe and Scandinavia? I'm a UK passport holder, riding a F800gs with camping equipment and cloths, camera and helmet cam.

I just want to do Europe as a trial run, maybe find some work along the way. Do I need a work visa for all the countries I'll be visiting?

Thanks Mark

Mark, as a resident of the EU you need no Visa for the other EU countries, Passport is all you need

Hello Mark,

Just your PP, V5 Log book, bike insurance - no need for the green card but inform your insurer of the dates you are away. NHS European health card from the post office. Rac, Green flag or AA brealdown cover and if you fancy it - travel insurance.

That would see you sorted right out.

Have a great time

You need a green card if something happens. Or if you are asked to prove that you have an insurance.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
