Disability Blue Badge

Hi all. Anyone know if the French are letting the English use the Disability Blue Badge yet due to Brexit we’re they said they would talk to the English government. That was 5 year’s ago.

Disabled drivers have been warned about using their blue badges in popular European holiday destinations this summer due to an “outrageous” Brexit hangover that means they may not be accepted. Ministers are still negotiating with 11 nations on the status of UK blue badges, which were recognised across the EU until the country left the union two years ago.

France, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy are among the countries still “undecided” about whether UK blue badges will be recognised, according to the UK Government website. The others are Iceland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Romania and Slovenia.

Spain is an unusual one, as they keep changing their minds.

First they said we couldn't use e-gates... now we can.

Then they said no IDP - the car hire company even confirmed this... but now they want one.

Perhaps it's just local districts deciding to overrule the main law and impost their own to raise some cash?

Also worth a mention about Radar keys.

Do RADAR toilet keys work abroad ?

No, unfortunately RADAR keys can only be used in the UK. However, if you are planning to travel to Europe, you may hear about an equivalent key called a Euro-key. This is a European toilet key and it costs €25 plus shipping – so is quite a bit more expensive than a RADAR key.

Of course! The RADAR key works only in the UK. And the Euro key in how many countries?  ;)
Stay on the right side of the road (I mean here, mainland Europe, the >>> RIGHT side).
