How old do I need to be to hire a car in Malaga?
Like in many other European countries, you need to be at least 21 years old to hire a car in Malaga and must hold a free and clear licence.
Those under 25 may also need to provide a young driver's surcharge, as this age group is considered to be more risky on the road.
The amount charged may be different depending on the rental car company, so we recommend including a comment with your DriveNow booking and we will follow up with your rental company of choice and report back to you.
What kind of licence do I need?
If your original licence is printed using the Latin alphabet then you do not need any additional paperwork - save your passport for identification - to hire a car in Malaga.
However, those with licences printed in another alphabet may need to also organise an international driver's permit (IDP) to act as a translation of their licence.
If you fall into this category, you will need to keep your original licence alongside your IDP at all times when you are behind the wheel and it is also advisable to keep your passport handy just in case it is required.
Good advice is also to always have your passport with you when driving.
Can I reduce my liability in the event of an accident?
Yes. All car rental companies will offer you car excess or waiver insurance reduction options by paying a daily fee. Many travel insurance policies also provide this service (in most instances this is the cheapest way to reduce your liability). For insurance reduction options through your rental company speak with them when collecting your vehicle - DriveNow does not sell insurance options.
