No, unfortunately ? in almost all cases you will need a credit card.

The car hire company will put a deposit on the main driver?s credit card before they hand over the keys to the rental car. Without a credit card, they can?t take the deposit, so won?t hand over the keys.

You can find out if you need a credit card in a car?s terms and conditions, under ?What you need at pick-up?.

Yes. If you are between 21 to 29 years old and have had your full driving licence for two years, you can rent from most car hire companies.

When you search for a car, please untick the box that says 'Driver aged between 30-65' and add your age. We will then only show you cars that you can rent.

Many car hire companies charge a 'young driver fee' for any drivers under 25.

Very few companies will rent cars to drivers under 21.

If you want to pick up your car in one country and drop it in another, your search results will show you cars you can do that with.

If you?re planning to cross any borders during your trip, bear in mind:

  1. You may have to pay more

    There are often extra fees, taxes or additional cover you?ll pay at the car hire counter.

  2. It may not be possible

    Depending on where you?re hiring, you may not be able to take your car to another country.

Please contact us if you want to take your hire car into a different country during your trip, and we?ll talk you through your options.

If the counter staff don't make it clear when you pick your car up, just ask them.

There may also be a sign inside the petrol cap.

Car hire companies change their cars all the time, so we can't guarantee which type of fuel your car will take.

Your voucher will show the car hire company's address and tell you how to drop your car off at the end of the trip. If you'd like more details, we recommend asking the counter staff when you pick your car up.

Your car will probably be checked over when you return it, or there may be a box to drop the keys in if there is no one available.

We recommend keeping any paperwork you are given.
