When it comes to hiring a vehicle, most suppliers will only hire to those over the age of 25, if you are under 25 it can be extremely hard to get a rental vehicle. Some suppliers do hire to those under the age of 25 but generally charge a high young driver fee. We can hire to those from the age of 20 depending on how long you have held your license for and whether you have any points or convictions. For more information please see below.

We can also now allow young driver car hire with no deposit! Click here for more details.

young driver car hireWhat is the minimum age to hire a vehicle?

Here at Indigo our minimum age requirement to hire a vehicle is 20 however please note in very few locations we can accept people who are 18 or over. Usually however if you are under 20 then unfortunately we will be unable to hire a vehicle to you. This changes however depending on the vehicle as well for example for 7 seater car hire you must be 23 or older.

Can a 20 year old hire a vehicle?

Usually 20 year olds are unable to hire a vehicle. This isn’t available in France or even the rest of Europe however in the UK we work with one supplier who is able to offer car hire to 20year olds providing they have held their licence with no points for at least 3 years. Please note you MUST contact us directly in order to check this. This options is NOT available online!

Can a 21 year old hire a vehicle?

If you are 21 years old then we may be able to assist you if you need to hire a vehicle. This depends on the amount of time you have held your license for, whether you have any points or convictions on your license and from which location you want a vehicle.

Do you charge extra for young drivers?

UPDATE Recent changes have made it harder for us to arrange hire cars with no additional young drivers fee, please see here for more information.

All of the prices on our website do not include any young driver fees; this is in addition to the cost of the rental. If you are under the age of 25 then you must contact us directly to find out the options. If you are between the ages of 23-24 then depending upon the location we can offer young driver car hire with no additional charge. This is subject to availability and depends on where you are wanting the vehicle from.
