Don’t forget that traffic drives on the right. Motorways are toll free and the speed limit is 120 kph or (74 mph). You’ll need your driving licence with you and when driving your own car, and a green card from your insurance company is strongly advised.
As in the UK, parking meters are standard in most towns and cities.
