Young Drivers (under 25 years old)?

Find out what you need to know if you are under 25 and want to hire a car.

Drivers under the age of 25 tend to be either subject to a young drivers surcharge or having to accept higher excesses. In some cases it is compulsory to take the car hire companies own waiver excess or Super CDW insurance which may well still leave a large excess to pay in the case of an incident. Normally the choice of car is also restricted.
