What should I consider when hiring a car for my holiday?
  • What about the climate where you are travelling? Most cars come with heaters, but will you need air conditioning as well?
  • Will you need a manual or automatic transmission? How about cruise control?
  • Do you need room for many people, or for a lot of baggage? Make sure you get a big enough vehicle.
  • Does your chosen provider offer child seats or other amenities? Do they charge extra?
  • Is car hire excess insurance included in the hire fee? Will you need extra cover?
What will I need before I can hire a car?

When comparing vehicle rental policies, read each carefully. Each provider has different requirements, and each country has different guiding standards. In general, though:

  • You will usually need to be 21 or older. Many will charge more of you are under 25.
  • You will have to make the booking with a credit card in the driver’s name, and present it when you collect the car. You may need to produce your receipt as well.
  • You’ll need a full driver’s license.
  • You will generally also need a 2nd form of ID. A passport usually qualifies.
What will I need to book a car in the UK?

The DVLA requires a specific code to access your driving records. This code can be retrieved from https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence, but you’ll need

  • Your driving license number
  • Your NI number
  • Your post code (make sure your address is up to date on your license)
