Looking to hire on your temporary license?

Postby Indigo Ann-Marie » 14 Jun 2014, 09:15

We had a customer the other day turn up for his hire car at Milan Malpensa Airport with their temporary US license, passport, return flight details and payment card. Unfortunately they had not informed us that the license they had, wasn't their original license, but a temporary license instead. If you're looking to hire and only have a temporary license, then you're going to find it really hard to find a company that will hire a vehicle to you.

You can get a temporary license when you're in the process of changing over to another license, we have many customers who have had these when changing over from a UK license to a Spanish license, and unfortunately we haven't been able to help when it comes to getting a hire vehicle. So if you are looking to hire on your temporary license, then please check to see if it will be accepted before getting anything booked in.

Update on this post as we have now linked up with a new supplier who will accept a temporary drivers license upon arrival.

So if you are in a situation where your UK license has been surrendered and you are awaiting a new license from the authorities you can still hire a car, but you just need to make contact with us in the first instance so we can verify who will provide this service to you.

**Please note this will only work with hire cars in the UK**

:D :D :D :D
