I don't think it will hurt to get one, but we have never gotten one and have never been asked for one. If its easy to get then you might as well get one.

Same as barry says. We go to Croatia regularly and have never been asked for one. Our car has been searched at the border crossings a few times (routine) and it has never been a problem. But as barry says, they are inexpensive and easy to obtain.

If you are to drive through Bosnia, you have to have one. It does not hurt. Walk in AAA office and they will make it in 15 minutes.
