Starting your booking

To hire a car in the UK, you need to be 23 years of age and have held a driving licence for at least one year.

If you're 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. Find out more by contacting the location directly or call our reservations team.

Under the age of 25, you can hire cars from Group A (e.g. Citroen C1), Group B (e.g. Ford Fiesta), Group C (e.g. Peugeot 308), Group E (e.g. Vauxhall Astra), and Group I (e.g. VW Golf).

Don't forget to review the terms and conditions when you book, which include everything you need to know ahead of your journey.
