Young drivers are often faced with barriers when it comes to hiring a vehicle. With Europcar, we welcome drivers over the age of 22 (19 in some other countries) to hire a car for university, work or whilst they’re on holiday. We even offer 15% discount to ISIC card holders!

Even if you’re not an ISIC card holder, we still offer highly competitive rates for under 25s and charge the lowest Young Driver Surcharge compared to our competitors.

To find out what vehicles you’re eligible to rent, simply begin a booking to get a quote.

FAQs and Young Driver Requirements


How old do you have to be to hire a car?

Generally in the UK, the minimum age is 22. The age policy may vary depending on the vehicle you wish to rent and may vary
at certain Europcar Branches and any such variation will be indicated during the booking process.
Drivers must also have held a full and valid driving licence for a minimum of 12 months except for rentals starting 
from Plymouth, Exeter, Taunton, Carmarthen, Pembroke, Aberystwyth and Llanelli when the full and valid licence must 
have been held for a minimum of 2 years prior to picking up the vehicle.
Do I have to pay extra?
Due to insurance requirements, all drivers under the age of 25 will be required to pay a young driver's surcharge of
just £32.50 per day of rental.
How much discount can I get?
If you are an ISIC card holder, you are eligible for 15% off our rentals. If you do not hold one of these cards, our 
vehicles are still offered at competitive rates.
For more information, please read Europcar’s terms and conditions before booking or contact our helpful customer services.
