Frequently Asked Questions
Using someone else’s credit card? Get yourself added as the 'Additional Driver’
If you are using a friend’s credit card to rent a car and wish to drive, you must get your name on the car rental agreement as the additional driver. Note that the additional driver must fulfill all the requirements i.e. you must qualify the age and driver’s license requirements. And bring all the documents at the time of pick up; as per the supplier policy there might be additional charges for the additional driver service. Read the T&Cs for deal specific information.
Can I rent a car if I am under 20?
Yes, you can but there may be a few more conditions. If you are over 18 years old and have a valid & full driver’s license with one year driver experience, majority of suppliers will allow you to rent provided you are ready to pay a young driver surcharge. One more thing, you will need to produce a credit card in your name to qualify to rent; also do bring your international drivers permit along to be on the safer side, especially if your license is not in Roman alphabet.
