WHAT DO I NEED TO HIRE A CAR?

To book your car, all you need is a credit or debit card. When you pick the car up, you’ll need:

  • Your voucher / eVoucher, to show that you’ve paid for the car.
  • The main driver’s credit / debit card, with enough available funds for the car’s deposit.
  • Each driver’s full, valid driving licence, which they’ve held for at least 12 months (often 24).
  • Your passport and any other ID the car hire company needs to see.

Different car hire companies have different requirements, so please make sure you check the car’s terms and conditions as well.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO RENT A CAR?

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN I’M CHOOSING A CAR?

  • Space: You’ll enjoy your rental far more if you choose a car with plenty of room for your passengers and luggage.
  • Fuel policy: Not planning on driving much? A Full to Full fuel policy can save you a lot of money.
  • Location: You can’t beat an ‘on-airport’ pick-up for convenience, but an ‘off-airport’ pick-up with a shuttle bus can be much cheaper.

ARE ALL FEES INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL PRICE?

The vast majority of our rentals include Theft Protection, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges and any road fees. You’ll pay for any ‘extras’ when you pick your car up, along with any young driver, additional driver or one-way fees – but we’ll explain any additional costs before you book your car (and taking your own child seats or GPS can be an easy way to reduce your costs). For more details on what’s included, just check the Ts&Cs of any car you’re looking at.
