Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in York?

Before finalising your car hire in York and picking up the vehicle, you'll need to understand the process and what requirements you'll need to meet before you arrive. Many car companies in York require drivers to be at least 21 before they'll hire a car to them, and if you're under 25, be prepared to be charged an additional surcharge on top of your hire fee for being a young driver. You'll need to have had your licence for at least 12 months before picking up a hired car in York. If you don't have an EU or UK licence, your home-country licence must be accompanied by an International Driving Permit. Before arriving, make sure you have your confirmation details printed out, a valid credit card and photo identification, like a passport. If you've booked online, you'll need to have the same credit card used to make the purchase and the card owner must be present.

What are the rules for driving in York?

To make sure you stay safe and out of trouble with local law enforcement, and to keep your fellow drivers safe, it's important to familiarise yourself with local driving rules.

When in York, like the rest of England, you'll drive your cheap car hire on the left-hand side of the road and pass on the right.
