How old do I need to be to hire a car?

To hire a car in the , you need to be at least 19 years of age at the moment of collecting the vehicle and have held a driving licence for at least one year. If you or your additional drivers are under the age of 25, you'll need to pay an extra fee per day. The amount depends on where you hire a car, because the law and insurance terms vary between countries. If the location charges a premium fee, it could cost more. The minimum age you can hire a car also varies from country to country. You can find specific information in our terms and conditions or contact us using the below icons. Under the age of 25, you can hire cars from Group A (e.g. Hyundai i10), Group B (e.g. Ford Fiesta), Group C (e.g. Seat Leon), Group E (e.g. Vauxhall Astra), and Group I (e.g. VW Golf (auto). Check out our fleet to find further information about specific categories. 
There is currently no age maximum, so long as you have had a full, valid, licence for at least 1 year. Some additional steps may be required for those who are over the age of 75 on the date of scheduled return. Check the location specific terms and conditions for the country you are renting for more information on age requirements.
