Common questions

How old do I need to be to hire a car at Cardiff airport?

In Wales and the UK, you need to be at least 21 to hire a car, but be aware that most car rental companies will only rent cars to those over age 25. Those who fall in the age bracket of 21-25 may be required to pay a surcharge, which can vary depending on which car rental company you decide to go with. This age group may face a limit on the type and size of car they can hire and may need to stick to smaller vehicle choices.

Can I hire an automatic car?

Most UK car rentals are manual transmission, but you can hire an automatic. These tend to be slightly more expensive to rent.

What rules do I need to be aware of when driving in the UK?

You will need to keep left on the roads and remember that speed is measured in miles, while petrol and diesel are dispensed in litres. The speed limits are the same across Wales, England, Northern Ireland and Scotland making it easy for you to get around the UK. On motorways, the speed limit is 70mph, on major highways it is 60mph and in other urban traffic it is 30mph.

What optional extras can I get when renting my car?

  • Child Seats - Children under 12 or less than 135cm tall must use a child booster seat. Book your booster seats when making your car rental booking as branches have limited numbers and can run out during peak periods.
  • Sat-Nav - handy for travelling in unfamiliar territory GPS satellite navigation guidance systems can be rented - charged on a daily rate.
  • Insurance Excess reduction - all rental vehicles come with basic insurance cover. You can reduce your liability in the event of an accident by paying a daily excess reduction fee. This varies between suppliers, a guide would be £12-£28 depending upon vehicle size. If you are visiting the UK and have travel insurance check the policy as many include car hire excess reductions which can be a great saving.
