Young people and car rental

The end of college and university terms is coming up and that means we will have increased demand for rentals, particularly vans, as parents prepare to collect their student young people together with their life support systems!

Peak period is July so if you will be wanting to rent a vehicle for a day for this purpose our advice is to let us know as soon as you can.

While we are on the subject of young people and vehicle renting we thought we’d let you know what restrictions there are on renting to young people.

If they are students, we cannot rent a vehicle until they are aged 25, otherwise young people can rent a vehicle if they are 21-plus years of age.

For the under-25s we charge an additional Young Persons Fee of £10 per day.  If they have a non-UK driver’s licence, they must have a minimum of a year’s experience of driving in the UK.

There are no restrictions on the types of vehicle younger people can hire as long as their driver’s licence covers the category of vehicle.

We cannot do one-way only vehicle hire as all vehicles must be returned to our depot.
