Need some help?

Whether you're hiring a car or van, you just need a clean driving licence that covers the vehicle you're hiring. Don't worry if you have points on your driving licence. You can still hire a car in the UK if you have six or less points. You must have held your driving licence for at least three years (or at least one year if you are hiring in the UK) and it must be from the country you live in. Please remember to bring your driving licence with you when you collect your vehicle. If you're driving abroad, you and your additional driver will also need to bring your International Driving Permits. But in some countries, such as China, you can only drive if you have a Chinese driving licence.

Don't forget to review the terms and conditions when you book, which include everything you need to know ahead of your journey.
