Minimum Age to Rent a Car in the United States

minimum age

The minimum age to rent a car for most major car rental companies is 21 to 24. Some will rent to even younger drivers where a mandatory surcharge and additional restrictions typically apply. Since each car rental company has different policies when it comes to underage drivers, it is important to know them before you collect the vehicle.

Always check the terms and conditions...

Make sure you read and understand the terms and conditions of your rental car agreement. Check carefully the list of the minimum age requirements for each of our suppliers to get more information. Note that an additional charge applies to 21-24 and/or 18-20 aged renters.
