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

This always depends on the car hire firm and type of vehicle you want to hire.

In most cases the minimum age is 21. But the higher the vehicle category, the higher the minimum age.

In some cases it is possible to rent a car when you are under the age of 21, but a ‘young drivers surcharge’ may be applied.

You can find information on the minimum age in the terms and conditions of the supplier.
