Car Hire For Young Drivers

Young Driver Car Hire

young driver car hire

When it comes to hiring a vehicle, most suppliers will only hire to those over the age of 25. 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.

What is the minimum age to hire a vehicle?

Here at Indigo our minimum age requirement to hire a vehicle in Europe is 20. However in UK the minimum age is 21 and if you are under 20 then unfortunately we will be unable to hire a vehicle to you.

Can a 20 year old hire a vehicle?

The 20 year olds are unable to hire a vehicle in UK. However in the rest of Europe we work with one supplier who is able to offer car hire to 20year olds.  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?

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.

Quick and helpful helpdesk

I just booked a car to travel this summer around Scotland and this website offers the best quotes if you're under 25. Others supercharge you around 30 pounds per day for being under 25, way higher deposits and so on.

People in the helpdesk are very kind and they really try to get you the best quote. The best thing is that in my case I can pay everything when I collect the car.


Great experience and very customer friendly

This is my first time renting a car, and being under 25 made it very difficult to find good deals. Indigo was very friendly and helpful in giving honest advice and liaised us with a good car rental company.

I had to make numerous calls with Indigo and they were always more than happy to chat and help me out. I was very pleased with their services. I would highly recommend Indigo especially for those under 25 looking for good deals and low surcharge.

Great experience, thanks!
