Many of the Newbies and IBW Virgins out there will have heard the rest of us talk about the International meets, well believe me when I say that the Dutch one is not to be missed. It is open to everybody and it would be great to see just how many we can get over there this year.

If you are unsure what to expect, then take a look at my write up of my own very first IBW back in 2014 (also Netherlands)

We tend not to use the Eurotunnel, because at some point we need to sleep and leave the Buggies somewhere safe in an unfamiliar environment - the overnight ferry is brilliant for that, and the party atmosphere of us all traveling and cruising together for a good few hundred miles just cannot be beaten. The Ferry also takes us straight to our destination country.

But above all else, and this is the very important one . . . . .  we avoid France   bleugh

I`m going to start hassling Stenna next week   ;)

Hi Dave

It seems you might be the one to ask...... For someone like me who's never been on one of these trips and is definitely coming with this time, leaving from Hull, what is the actual process?
Do we need to book and pay on this link http://www.algemenebuggyclub.eu/IBW2019/info_eng.php
Or is everything sorted together at once?
And also, how does ferry booking and payment work?
And any other info that you can think of.

Cheers
Glenn

Glenn the Northern crew use Hull buggybaggy or Krug will advise on that specific port. But booking is through the ferry website or phone no idea if they try and arrange a discount because of the numbers going.

We fill in the IBW entry form and e mail it to them and put a comment on pay on gate so they know we are going and thus the numbers but we pay cash on the gate as some banks charged for an international payment.

Booking the food makes life easier as it saves  carrying all the required cooking kit apart from the tea n coffee stuff.

Have a read of motoring in Holland rules and requirements although a list will appear.

Hook of Holland ferry arrives at 08.00, Newcastle the Amsterdam one is 09.45  and Hull to Rotterdam 08.15 so the route would need to go north from Rotterdam to pick up Pepsi on route then cross the big Afsluitdijk dam on the way to IBW a reverse of the route last time we were there.

you could join the Northern crew and Scottish contingent sailing from Hull for the shorter ferry crossing and get more buggy cruise convoy miles in.

There is plenty of time to get to IBW after we land friday so there is no rush.

For the Newbies and IBW Virgins looking on, this trip is open to absolutely anyone and everyone - the more the merrier

What to expect . . .

Those of you from the Midlands to the Southern half of the country will meet up at various locations (to be arranged) on the 6th June 2019  to arrive at Colchester for a teatime Pizza / whatever before boarding the Overnight ferry from Harwich to Holland.

Those of you from the Midlands to the Northern half of the country will meet up at various locations (to be arranged) on the 6th June 2019  to catch the Overnight ferry from Hull to Holland.

Both ferries will dock within an hour or so of each other, and we will meet up at the nearest Motorway Services before taking an epic journey across Holland at a leisurely pace with loads of stops and hopefully we will pitch camp mid to late afternoon where the beer will start flowing.

The Dutch are great hosts, and entertainment will follow - Saturday night will be some form of fancy dress no doubt and sunday will be nursing the hangovers.

Monday will be a leisurely jaunt back to the docks, taking in some sights on the way, and hopefully a stop for some of us (Harwich Ferry) on the now legendary Bing Beach Cafe and Sand Dunes where we will then board the overnight ferry to arrive back in Blighty on Tuesday morning.

More details will materialise in due course, but the ferries do book up fast, so please do not leave it too late to come and join us

Think about it guys -
You are in a beer filled hall full of drunken people, and many of then will be German. So you are seriously suggesting that we wear skoolgirl skirts after seeing what some of our members have endured in previous years?

I for one will probably not be brave enough to wear a skirt to IBW  :o

For information only - not as something to panic about just yet

Taken from   https://www.gov.uk/guidance/international-driving-permits-for-uk-drivers-from-28-march-2019


Driving abroad before 28 March 2019

Currently, UK licence holders who live in the UK:

    need an international driving permit (IDP) in addition to their UK driving licence to drive in some countries outside of the EU and EEA
    can drive in all EU and EEA countries using their UK driving licence.

The UK currently issues 2 types of IDP to UK licence holders who are resident in the UK: the 1926 IDP and the 1949 IDP.

Driving abroad from 28 March 2019

From 28 March 2019, the UK will issue a third type of IDP: the 1968 IDP. At the same time, the type of IDP that some countries recognise will change.

From 29 March 2019, in the event that there is no EU exit deal, you  need an IDP in addition to your UK driving licence to drive when visiting EU and EEA countries


What type of IDP will I need?

The type of IDP you need depends on the country you are driving in.

Countries that have signed up to the UN conventions on road traffic issue and recognise IDPs.

From 28 March 2019, countries that are party to the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic will no longer recognise 1926 and 1949 IDPs issued by the UK. Instead you may need a 1968 IDP to drive in these countries.

Countries that have ratified a road traffic convention are not obliged to require visiting foreign drivers to carry an IDP. So, in some countries it may be possible to drive with a UK driving licence without an IDP.

Check which type of IDP you need to ensure that you have the correct documentation for your travels.


How to get an IDP

Until 31 January 2019, you can get 1926 and 1949 IDPs from 89 UK post offices, or by mail order from the AA or the RAC.

From 1 February 2019 you will only be able to get 1926, 1949 and 1968 IDPs over the counter from 2,500 UK post offices. Each IDP will cost £5.50.

Driving in the EU and EEA from 29 March 2019

If there is an EU exit deal, UK licence holders will be able to continue to drive in all EU and EEA countries using their UK driving licence.

In the event that there is no EU exit deal, the government will seek to put in place new arrangements for EU and EEA countries to recognise UK driving licences when people are visiting, for example on holiday or business trips. Until such arrangements are in place, UK driving licence holders may also need an IDP to drive in EU and EEA countries.

Each EU and EEA country will decide if they require a foreign driver to have an IDP, in addition to a driving licence, to legally drive in their country.

In some circumstances you may need more than one IDP. For example, when driving through France (1968 IDP) to Spain (1949 IDP).

On 29 March 2019, if there is no EU Exit deal or any other relevant agreement, you may need a new 1968 IDP to drive in these EU and EEA countries:

Austria    Belgium    Bulgaria    Croatia    Czech Republic
Denmark    Estonia    Finland    France    Germany
Greece    Hungary    Italy    Latvia    Lithuania
Luxembourg    Netherlands    Norway    Poland    Portugal
Romania    Slovakia    Slovenia    Sweden    

On 29 March 2019, if there is no EU Exit deal, you may need a 1949 IDP to drive in these EU and EEA countries:
Cyprus    Iceland    Ireland    Malta    Spain
