    Default european cover

    We're setting of for the trip to Dover at 4.30 tomorrow morning. over to Calais then upto Belguim.
    Now the thing is i have searched for my insurance certificate high and low, and cant find it.
    I AM insured for europe and am all legal but wont have my certificate with me. Whats my chances of being pulled for a stop-check. i'll have license,logbook,high viz, extinguisher,spare bulbs. but no certificate. i'm thinking of taking last years and pleading ignorance.
    anyone else deen over the water and how many have been pulled?

    Thanks folks

    well no probs. but by heck its expensive in belguim. 4-5 euros for 1/2 litre. whats that all about? from nottingham to bruges in 6 1/4 hrs including ferry crossing dover to calais. a day in brussels which was a disappointment after bruges, then back to blighty and the m25 and m1. might have to take another look at our return ferry times next time to avoid the traffic. all in all a good break and a pleasant drive thru france to belguim.
    All i did with the headlights was manually drop the beam to the lowest setting.
