    Senior Driver Surcharge

    When you reach the age of 70 or older you are categorized as a "senior driver," and senior drivers are subject to surcharges. There are many variables that come into play regarding senior driver fees. The car rental fees and conditions are determined by the local supplier and may differ between rental carriers and countries. One of Auto Europe's representatives assist you in booking a rental that offers the most reasonable senior driver fees.

    Who determines the maximum age to rent a car?

    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 only car rental age restrictions that will apply to you will be detailed in the terms and conditions of your rental contract, but national laws will still apply if you plan on driving to different countries. 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! Always be sure to read up on driving laws in any country you intend on visiting and give prior notice to Auto Europe if you plan on driving a rental car internationally.

    Are there specific insurance requirements for renters over 70?

    As you're creating your car rental reservation online with Auto Europe, or speaking with one of our car rental reservation agents, it's important to provide the correct age of the primary driver who will be listed on the voucher. This is because select car rental companies may also have different car rental insurance standards for senior drivers. Refer to Auto Europe's car rental insurance travel tips to learn more about basic, inclusive and optional car rental insurance requirements and availability.
