Regardless of where you are looking to travel, rental car age requirements and restrictions may affect the cost of your vehicle reservation. This is especially true for those looking to rent a car under 25 because many rental suppliers will set strict rental car age limits or charge an additional daily fee known as a young driver surcharge. These age limits will vary depending on where and who you plan to rent your car with, so it's best to keep yourself informed and in control of all your local car rental fees.
In most countries, drivers as young as 18 will be able to book a rental car (see chart below). Although rental suppliers are willing to rent vehicles to young adults, this will likely come with additional rental fees and certain restrictions on rental fleets available. With over 60 years of industry experience, Auto Europe has been booking rental cars for travelers of all ages. Find detailed information on what to expect in your rental experience if you are under the age of 25.
A less common rental car age requirement is a maximum age limit that will sometimes prevent older senior drivers from renting a car. These limits typically affect drivers 75 and older, but individual rental suppliers can set these rental car age requirements and restrictions at their own discretion. The good news for senior citizens is that these rules are uncommon in most European countries, but it's still always best to be aware of potential age limits that can affect your trip abroad!
Use the chart below to gather some quick info on rent a car age limits for the country you plan on visiting. Remember that rules may vary depending on the location and rental supplier you choose, but specific terms and conditions will always be listed in your car rental contract.
