You must have a driving license in your name from your home country Type 3 and/or Type B (Euro-Standard). The licence must be valid in the country of rental. Licences that are not valid in the country of rental must be accompanied by an international licence. In most countries, it is mandatory for the driver to have held a valid driving licence for a least one year. Some countries require the driver to have held a driving licence for at least three years. In addition, the driver must present a valid passport/identity card and a credit card in his or her name. A driving licence and identification must also be presented for any additional drivers.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: In the UK, it is not sufficient to show only the card part of the licence to retrieve the vehicle. The driving licence must be accompanied by its paper counterpart. The paper counterpart is never acceptable on its own and under UK law both parts need to be presented at the hire station when collecting the vehicle.
Can the vehicle be driven also by another driver?
