    In addition to carrying paper copies, another tip is to scan or photograph all of the documents and then email them to yourself. They'll then be readily retrievable even if you lose your phone/tablet etc

    No. But I've never met you, let alone travelled abroad with you.
    I have, however, been asked for mine in France.

    Just takes a minor bump that is not your fault and the police turn up, if your docs are only scans on your phone they mean absolutely nothing , I know we wouldn't accept that if it was a foreign driver in the UK

    Too true, Austrian Police were looking for a lock up for not having docs on my person
