Travel Advisory: It Is Illegal In Europe To Use Walkie-Talkies

It is often illegal in Europe to use walkie-talkies(click to tweet)

I had no idea until I read this article and did some research. Read on for more information on traveling to Europe and using these communication devices.

Walkie-talkies are useful travel gadgets while driving in multiple cars to coordinate pit stops, etc. Also great for communicating while en route and then to meet up when out and about and exploring towns. They are especially great since cell phone would be very expensive to use overseas especially when roaming.
