Common Questions

How old must I be to rent a car in Spain?
The minimum age is 21, however at some locations this can be 23 and young driver fees may also apply (these average around 18 Euros a day and with a 10 day cap). In addition some locations and some suppliers impose further restrictions on the type of vehicles they will rent to drivers aged 23-25. As restrictions vary between suppliers and locations, if you have any concerns about age limits or restrictions please use the comments field and we will confirm any that apply to you. There are no cancellation fees so book with confidence knowing you can cancel at no cost.

What driving license do I require?
You can rent a car using your own driving license as long as it is English based - other licenses should be supported by an international Driving Permit. Good advice is to always carry your passport when driving a rental car and ensure you have this available when picking up the vehicle.
