No more separation = no more drama on holidays!

If you have a dog, cat or ferret, you can travel with them wherever you want in the EU with the European pet passport!

Ask for it to any authorised veterinarian and pack your suitcase.

Whatever road you choose, take care and drive safely!

We continue to work towards ‘Vision Zero' – zero road deaths by 2050.
In 2018, 25,100 people lost their lives on EU roads.

We are committed to work with all EU countries to provide the level of safety you demand and deserve.

#ThrowbackThursday 40 years ago, the first European elections by direct universal suffrage took place.

Many things have changed ever since, but not your right to vote your representatives!

Remember #EUelections2019 will take place next 23-26 May. The countdown is on, are you ready?
