Is there any reason to bring a US drivers license on a trip to Europe.  Has anyone ever encountered a need for it?  Thanks.

Well, three times I ended up renting a car when I hadn’t planned on it.  It’s also an alternative form of ID which might make it easier to replace your passport if it got lost or stolen.
