Car rental for young drivers

Youg drivers and car hire

"I'm under 25 and I would like to rent a car, can I do it?" Of course yes!

New drivers (at least from one year) and/or under 25s, fall under a particular jurisdiction, which every rental agency faces with caution and setting its own limits. So let's see what these limits are and which agencies are more convenient for young drivers.

Flizzr, Green Motion, Hertz and Sixt

These agencies allow 21-year-old drivers, who have had their driving license for at least 1 year, to hire. All four agencies require an additional supplement of about 38£ per day, also some agencies, such as Hertz and GreenMotion, could limit the rental to the cheapest categories only: remember to always check the cost of the supplement within the rental conditions of each car, they may vary from time to time.

The situation of the other agencies

As for the other agencies, in general the minimum age to rent is 25 years. There are different policies imposed by the many existing agencies, some have limits on the categories, others have increasing limits according to age.

All the data shown are subject to possible changes: it is always good to read the rental conditions in detail to find out any changes in the costs and possibilities of hiring for young drivers.

It is always good to keep in mind that to rent a car, regardless of age, you will need a standard credit card in the name of the main driver.
