Fall in love all over again by driving through the scenic views as France allows you to drive around with the Indian license for a year too. Though, you’ll have to get it translated to French once you’re there.

4. Great Britain

As long as your license is in English, you can plan road trips across England, Scotland, and Wales easily.

5. Norway

Northern lights and road trip — the combo that no one says no to! You can drive up to 3 months from the day you arrive in the country.

6. South Africa

The government will allow you to drive on their roads as long as the car is not rented out from an agency. For that, you’ll need an international license. So if you have your own car you can enjoy a holiday of a lifetime. Are we sensing some sort of adventure!?

7. Switzerland

Swiss authorities will also need a translated version of your license but once that’s sorted, you’re good to go. The driver should also be above 21 years of age as a rule.
