How old do you have to be to rent a car?

The minimum car hire age depends on the country where you are going to pick your rental vehicle, the car-type and the supplier. You will be advised at the time of booking about the restrictions in place, and this will also be shown on the rental documentation.

Generally, the driving age ranges from 25 to 65 years, however, most car rental suppliers do allow rentals for drivers below the age of 25 years against a Young Driver Surcharge. Please refer to the "Rental Terms" link given against each car on the car search result page.

If you are aged under 25 or over 65 and are at all in doubt, please do not hesitate to contact our 24/7 customer support team.
