Traveling to Gabon? Here's what you need to rent a car
Why carry an IDP while driving in Gabon?
Your IDP is a valid form of identification in 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information.
It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Gabon highly recommends an International Driving Permit.
