What’s the harm in leaving the county in? Older people even ring up saying “This is James from Hampshire” so I see now point in removing it.

Thats true for Germany that the region is not used in adresses but my customers don’t seem to mind entering it anyway. In Italy the province is used for addresses. I don’t remember exactly for Spain, I think that the province is often used but not always, it’s been awhile since I lived there. I don’t remember for other EU countries.

I had this problem working on a worldwide dealer locator and we never found a perfect solution. I guess it depends on where the majority of your clients are located.

Greetings from Augsburg Germany,

Patrick

Can you give a few examples of sites that are doing this?
