Common Questions

Which car rental companies are available in Edinburgh?

DriveNow works with the top car companies in the UK to ensure the best rates for your hire car. Our car rental partners at Edinburgh Airport and in Edinburgh itself are Avis, Hertz, Budget and Europcar.

How old must I be to rent a car in the UK?

You can rent a car in the UK if you are at least 21 years old, but there are surcharges for drivers under age 25 and the choice of cars may be limited.

Do I need an international drivers permit (IDP)?

If your licence is in English, and is a full licence, you do not need an IDP when you rent in the UK. However, if it is in another language you will require an IDP. You should carry both your licence and the permit when you drive.

Are there any important driving rules?

Cars on UK roads drive on the left. Distance and speed are measured in miles. However, petrol is measured in litres.

If you are on a motorway, the speed limit will be 70 mph. For major highways, the limit is 60 mph and in urban areas you don't want to exceed 30 mph unless otherwise signposted. Speed limits across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are uniform and enforced with speed cameras.

Seatbelts are required, and if you have children under 12 years old or less than 135 cm high, they must be fitted into a child booster seat. This can be included in your rental car booking.
