Information for Under 25's
If you are aged under 25 you can hire a car but you would need to pick your car hire provider carefully. Different providers have different minimum age requirements for their car hire and different charges for young drivers. Most providers will charge under 25s an additional fee to hire with them which is called a young driver’s surcharge. This charge varies for your rental country and your car rental policy but will probably be added to each day of your rental.
Some providers offer discounts for students to help save you money. Hertz are one company which offers car hire student discounts for students aged over 19. Although you receive a discount with Hertz you still need to pay the daily young driver’s surcharge.
All the providers at Robin Hood airport will require you present them with a valid driver’s license (both the photo ID card and the paper counterpart), a form of ID other than your driving license such as your passport and a valid credit card to hire a car with them. You will need to show these items upon arrival at the airport and failure to present any item will cause your rental to be cancelled. Car hire providers will not accept photocopies so make sure you have the original copy with you.
When you hire a car, during the booking you will be presented with a range of insurance extras to purchase with your provider. All you really need for insurance is a car hire excess insurance. Having a car hire excess insurance prevents you from paying the high excess car hire providers charge you if your vehicle was damaged or broken into during your rental, which can cost up to £2,000. Your car hire provider will offer you the option of adding car hire excess insurance to your booking but it is cheaper to buy from a specialist car hire excess insurance provider such as Insurance4carhire.
Here are a few tips for when you hire a car which will save you money:
- Buy your car hire in advance to make the most of deals and discounts.
- When asked if you would like to pre pay or pay at the location always select pre pay for rental. It is considerably cheaper to pay in advance than when you arrive at Robin Hood airport.
- Ensure you are aware whether the vehicle is a Diesel or a Petrol vehicle as it may differ from your home vehicle.
- Report any damage that is already on your car to the provider to ensure you are not charged for damage caused before your rental started.
- Make yourself aware of the rules and regulations in your rental country as it may be different from your own.
- Try not to be late returning your vehicle. Late returns results in an additional day’s hire being added to your rental.
