    UK Rental Car Age Requirements

    Car Rental in UKThe minimum age to rent a car in the United Kingdom is 21 years old. Rental age requirements vary by supplier and some suppliers will charge a young driver surcharge for renters under the age of 25. The young driver surcharge is expensive in the UK and can vary between £30-£40 per day.

    Some rental car suppliers in the UK will also have a maximum age limit. Drivers over the age of 70 should pay close attention to age restrictions in the booking process and be sure they don't need additional documentation to pick-up their car rental in the UK. Renters over the age of 70 should call an Auto Europe reservations agent at 1-888-223-5555 prior to travel.

    United Kingdom License Requirements

    Travelers from the United States and Canada can pick up a vehicle in the United Kingdom and drive off the rental agency lot with a domestic driver's license that is in good standing and has been valid for at least one year. Additionally, a passport must also be produced if the driver is not a citizen of the UK. That being said, it is highly recommended that travelers planning to drive in the United Kingdom acquire an international drivers permit (IDP), which can be purchased from your local AAA or CAA branch for only $15. While an IDP is not necessary to rent a vehicle in the UK (as long as your domestic driver's license is in English), an IDP serves as an internationally recognized form of identification.

    Car Rental Restrictions in the United Kingdom

    Most UK rental car categories can be driven anywhere in Western Europe, United Kingdom, Northern Ireland and Ireland. However, it is necessary to purchase additional insurance coverage for travel outside mainland UK. This coverage costs US$17 - US$30 per day and covers roadside assistance, greencard insurance, and customs and excise forms to take cars on ferries. Due to insurance regulations, there are restrictions on luxury car categories and on travel in certain countries. Please take a minute to ensure that your intended itinerary will be possible with the car you plan to rent.

    Domestic one-way car rentals are available between select locations, additional fees may apply. There are fees for international one-way rentals and car rentals to Northern Ireland, and not all vehicles are allowed.
