UK Car Rental – Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I rent a car in the UK using my foreign driver license?

    Yes, no matter if you are from USA, Canada, Australia or Croatia, you can rent a car in the United Kingdom even if you have a foreign driving license (DL). All you need is a valid driver license issued by your home country, and if it is not in English or other Latin languages, in that case, you will need your IDP (International Driver's Permit) too. In absence of a valid DL, you won't be allowed to pick the car even if you have your IDP as it is nothing but a translation of your original DL.

  • Can I rent a car in the UK if I’m under 25?

    Yes, you can hire a car in the UK on our booking engine if you are less than 25 years of age. However, note that almost all of our suppliers consider drivers under 25 as inexperienced and hence charge a fee known as young driver surcharge which you pay at the rental desk at the time of pickup. These drivers are only allowed to rent non-luxury vehicles and the surcharge amount may vary from supplier to supplier and also the pick-up location and the car type you are renting.

  • When I hire a car in the UK, can I get insurance with no excess?

    Though the inclusions offered with the rental car always cover insurances with some excess, we can help you find a car with a low excess or even zero excess. Read the car rental deal specific T&Cs to know what excess is offered, and if you want lower than that, just give us a call on our UK number, or chat with us on WhatsApp or on live chat feature and we will help you find book a car with absolutely no excess. We will try to arrange the deal you are looking for.
