Driving in America is both easy and convenient, however it is vital that you, your passengers and vehicle are adequately insured. You will need a full national driver’s license photo I.D and be a minimum of 21 years of age before being allowed to rent a car and a surcharge for drivers under the age of 25 will need to be paid payable locally. The main driver will be required to show a credit card (not a bank debit card) that matches the drivers name before the car can be rented. Any proposed additional drivers also need to be declared before the car rental collection and their driving licences will also need to be shown.
We strongly recommend that you visit https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence to obtain a code so that Rental companies can access your licence. To access this code you will need to provide your driving licence number, your national insurance number and the postcode on your driving licence. As this code is only valid for 72 hours, we recommend that you take the details required for this code, and obtain the code prior to your car hire within 3 days prior to collection. For more information, please contact us on 0844 576 6199
You should also be aware that there are likely to be local taxes to pay in addition to any pre-payment made in the UK. However it is now possible to save money by pre-paying almost everything when you book with us and we strongly recommend you purchase at the all inclusive rate before you go. Full terms and conditions of rental are available on your car rental’s website and please check your rental agreement carefully and ensure that you query anything you are not sure about with the rental agent before signing the agreement. To avoid any additional rental charges please return the car by the specified time and date, allowing plenty of time to get to your flight check in desk at least two hours before departure.
