this would depend on how far the pipe has to travel to the nearest drain,alternately you may be able to connect to a drain in the kitchen or bathroom if the boiler is sited there, it is advisable to connect to an internal drain owing to the fact that these condense pipes freeze up even if they are insulated,if you have to go external i suggest that you install trace heating to stop it freeving,if the condensate pipe freezes the boiler stops working,regards Terry.

Just to add what Terry said, make sure they dont run the pipe into a rain water down pipe.
We got called out not long ago, customer thought his flat roof was leaking, the kitchen was completly flooded, water streaming from boiler area, turned out the condensate pipe was routed through wall into a downpipe, which got blocked, backfilled, so all rain water was going back through pipe into boiler.
